Backup ILB was most definitely a need and I think a good player fell to them and they snatched him.
Think about it though, Michael Wilhoite was probably going to be our starting ILB and probably hold that role for at least half the season. We were one injury away from having Nick Moody seeing extensive playing time.
Wilhoite is by far the weakest link on that defense when he is playing. Hes an ok backup, but there is no more pressing need than upgrading Wilhoite as a starting ILB.
Granted its only for the short term, but a needs a need. (Its all irrelevent though because I think he was taken because he was the best player available rather than as a need)
