I just as soon draft any of theses guys
Dont'a Hightower, ILB, Alabama
Melvin Ingram, DE, South Carolina
Nick Perry, DE/OLB, USC
The trouble is you're not going to gain any great game day advantage by drafting one of those guys to replace Spencer.
I'd rather overpay Spencer a little, keep him and focus on positions that were very substandard in 2011... Namely corner and guard. DeCastro or one of the top 3 corners would be an instant improvement over what we had in 2011. I don't think any of these guys would be an instant improvement over Spencer, once you figure in the three responsibilities of Spencer's position, namely pass-rush, coverage and run defense.
