    The general consensus around league scouts is that Manti will be drafted between 15-25. With us moving to the 4-3, would you draft him if he was available? Could be more realistic than you would think.

    Even though a Teo, Lee, Carter LB core makes me salivate, we have more pressing needs for our 1st round pick

    Yeah Te'o is the softest so called star MLB I've ever seen. He got over hyped because he happened to be in the right place at the right time for a bunch of INT's. 5.5 TFL, 1.5 sacks, 0 FF and only 55 solo tackles are all very unimpressive stats for a 1st round MLB.

    They have to draft and hit on either line in round one. There is no other choice.

    I'll take either of Geno Smith or Matt Barkley if they fell that far.

    They won't, but I would if they did. Would not hesitate.

    Andrew Luck comes once ever 10 - 15 years. Griffin isn't as good as made to be. Luck is.

    In saying this, Smith and Barkley are more talented than currently being said.

    Since neither will be there, I go d-line first, o-line 2nd.

    Nevermind this bum of a LB.

    I would pass, he is a great player but we can find good OLBs that will fit perfect with lee and carter. I would love to have olgetree from Georgia as a SOLB

    So we're moving to a scheme that requires LESS Linebackers, and we should draft ... a linebacker?

    :facepalm:

    Honestly, I think we should just take the BPA. Don't really care about position. This team needs youth, talent and physicality and I don't care if that's another LB or G or QB. If the player meets that criteria and is truly the best available, just take him. So yeah, I'd take Te'o.

    Just as long as it's not a WR or CB.

    No.

    He's not a very dynamic player. Pass.

    I do not agree with the drafting of Te'o for Dallas. But I have heard some rumblings that if he fell he could be a target for us.

    Replace Manti Te'o with Alec Ogletree...and yeah, I would.

    I would say that the vast majority of INTs come from being in the right place at the right time...and that's an underrated skill.
    As of now, the signed LBs on the roster, assuming we switch to a 43, are Lee, Carter, Alright, Wilbur, Connor, Lemon, and McSurdy.

    I'd say LB is a need at this point, and Te'o or, miraculously Otree slips, they should be the pick. Then go safety in the second and guard in the 3rd, and you can have a serious haul in the draft.

    It's not even CLOSE to being a need at this point.

    The chances of Te'o in a Cowboys uniform next year are slim tbh. I doubt he slides that far, and even if he does I think Dallas would trade back because teams like Baltimore and Indianapolis would love to trade up and snag him and we could accumulate more picks. Im a ND fan, so id welcome it with open arms tbh, but we have more pressing needs on the O and D-lines. I'm really hoping Warmack slides to us, although I doubt it.

    Don't need him. 4-3 LBs are not something you need to have premium draft picks/stars at all 3 positions. Just look at the Seahawks and Falcons playing today.

    You can find depth at this position easily, whether it is late in the draft or free agency.

    I wouldn't. I'd still go OL, DL or Safety. You can find a guy later in the draft to pair with Carter and Lee.

    I do think Te'O is gonna be a good one though.
