Has Inside linebacker just become a need?

With Bowmans injury do we need to now start looking at drafting a high level inside linebacker? If so when do we Draft one?
Nah I doubt it, I believe they might draft for depth in the later rounds tho
Wilhoite will now get a multi year deal in the offseason. He is a capable replacement and will fill in for however long Bowman is out.

Would much rather go this route than rely on a rookie to step in. They'll still draft an ILB, just not early (IMO).
With Iupati's injury will they go after a 1st round guard? They don't seem to trust Kilgore or Looney.
Wilhoite looked amazing in the preseason, FWIW.
Wilhoite will man the position until Bowman is back .

I was thinking the same thing.

Time for Moody also to step in there and show something
May be move Skuta over to ILB. Guy played amazing for a back up this year.
maybe even look at a one year rental in free agency......


as long as we don't go all RG3 with Bowman.

Agree with this too, he looked good when he was out there
