I have to go with Boone. This offensive line looks completely different line this year. Aldon Smith is handling the transition well. I'd actually like for us to draft a guy at OLB and play the role that Smith did last year- a pure pass rushing specialist on 3rd down. Either that, or a few more blitzes by the LBs. We have the athleticism at that position to get even more than we have out of that group.
I'm very pleased with the way Aldon is playing. He's such an asset to have. I would deff love to draft just a pass rusher as well to play on 3rd downs
