Unable to trade down, Denver considers Connor for a moment, but with the recently signed Kawika Mitchell to plug the hole at middle linebacker, Phillips fills a bigger need and is quite possibly the BPA at the same time.

Thanks to Matt Millen, this made my pick so much easier. With the strong possibility of resigning Dansby and FA pick up of Suggs, my LB core and DLine should look solid, so all i have left to fix is my secondary. This pick not only solidifies the CB spot, but allows Antrell Rolle to move to his natural position of safety where his lack of elite speed wont factor in with his strong ball hawking skills, not to mention with the niners picking up Martz, we'll have to deal with possibly three pass-strong offenses in our division.
