Replace Irvin with someone like Brandon Brooks in round 2 and then I would be happy with it.
The problem we will have this year is drafting late. Brooks could easily be the 4/5 OG taken, with DeCastro, Konz, and Glenn going in the first Brooks has a good chance of getting over drafted by a team based on need (depends on how fast Zeitler goes). Being at the back of pack its smarter to predict who really should be there then who might be. I would prefer Zeitler but his name has picked up traction and unless we trade back I don't see us getting him.
Irvin has starting potential and we need to keep a rotation going at OLB. Parys offers no sack threat so his spot is shaky, couple that with his contract $$$ and he is replaceable. It is in that sense that Irvin could walk into the #3 spot and gets occasional snaps and Mos becomes a cheap emergency option. And it does go back to BPA, Irvin at 60 is a steal...just needs to stay out of trouble.
Given the situation I would rather release Parys and spend that money on a FA OG that gets released after final cuts. And don't slouch on Jones the kid has talent.
