Not that we shouldn't take an OLB at all in this draft (I definitely think we should, though I'd prefer to wait until the 2nd/3rd round), but I wouldn't automatically discount Dyral Briggs as a legit backup next year.
If they didn't believe in this kid's talent, there's no way they use a roster spot on him this year...they'd continue to develop him on the practice squad and take their chances that someone might grab him.
If he spends the off-season bulking up, improving his pass rush technique with Al Harris and gets his head around the playbook, we could have ourselves a steal.
trade back in the first round, maybe switch 1st's with a team and we get their second or third and get haden and an ot in the first round then olb in the second round and guard or bpa from then on
It would be a great move if we could trade back with one of the picks & get some more picks in 2nd or 3rd round.
