I think 14 is a great spot for a olb, and if we wait tell the 2nd or later then we will relie on butler to start. SOLB is a spot where you have to not just rush the passer. The you have to stop the run and cover the Te. The asking a 2nd round de to come in and transition is hard to do. Ingram, Upshaw, and Hightower all have experience doing this and can be starters day one.
A second round pick I would take if we do go OG or CB in the first is Vontaze Burfit or Andre Branch.
Last year this time, there were 2 top 10 ranked pass rushing LBers (Quinn & Miller) and a couple of pass rushing 3-4 DEs (Fairley & Dareus). With JJ Watt and Aldon Smith just a tick behind.
Nothing close to the pass rushing talent in this draft.
