Letting Spencer go and drafting any OLB in the 1st round isn't going to get this team any further.
my point is no they aren't. How many OLB in the 3-4 do you see starting day one as a rookie drafted in the 3rd. Give me a list please. But I can give you a good list og OGs that were drafted in the 3rd that started day one.
If we resign Spencer then no way do we spend a top 3 round pick on a OLB, you don't do that to a position where you just signed a guy long term and big money.
Ingram is far and away better than any of those guys you mentioned.
Ingram is so athletic and powerful I don't understand after all the hate people put on SPencer these past years, now no one wants to replace him or think a 3rd round pick can do it day one. Is this a joke.
We have four major holes to fill this offseason.
SOLB, CB, OG and Center, we need day one starters at all those spots.
If your going to do so via the draft then you have to play the odds.
Odds of getting a day one starting OLB past the first is slim past the 2nd is very slim.
Odds of getting a day one startng CB past the first is very slim, getting one past the 2nd is almost non existence.
Getting a day one starting OG or Center past he first is pretty goo dodds, getting one past the 2nd still very good odds, getting one past the 3rd your odds go down but still not as bad as CB or OLB.
