We will, but it lessens the chance of that OLB being picked in the early rounds.
I sure hope not. You can never count on a rookie to make an impact in year one, and a one year deal with a player coming off an injury shouldn't change your draft board. or your long term plans.
You either like a player or you don't. This doesn't change any of our "needs" long term and may or may not affect them short term.
If our front office passed on an OLB that was the BPA because we signed LaBoy, I'd be pretty disappointed. I can't imagine he affects our draft at all.
