    Right now, I'd have to go with Ernie Sims, but I hope Dallas drafts someone between the 3rd and 5th round to compete.

    Can't see Albright being the guy...I see him more of a WILL or even a DE.

    I hope Wilber wins the job, but can he cover?

    That's why worst case, I like Sims because of his athleticism and speed.

    I'm hoping for Sean Porter in the 3rd. I think he'd be a perfect fit.

    Didn't Sims have 2 concussions in his short time with us... I believe on back-to-back weeks or at least close to each other?

    How can it be Ernie Sims, if he is a FA?

    If I had to guess, I'd bet Wilber will be Ware's backup at DE.

    I'm assuming to sign him to a 1 yr vet minimum deal.

    They would just trade him.

    I believe Albright could play the SAM spot if he dropped a few pounds. He's pretty quick and agile for a guy his size and dropping a few pounds should only increase his speed.

    No way we are taking an outside lb in the 3rd round with needs at OL, DT, DE.

    Agreed, but we all know how much JJ likes LB's. I think Wilber will emerge this year and take over the Sam. He looked excellent in the little playing time he had last year.

    I am pretty confident they already said he was Ware's backup.

    Every year someone says this, and every year we take a linebacker between the second and fourth. In fact, I'd argue that SOLB is just as big a need as those you listed, moreso even than DE if we re-sign Spencer. Heck, even if we don't re-sign Spencer, I'm confident that Crawford can start at SDE, whereas I have no confidence in anyone currently on the roster at SOLB.

    Now we are in a 4-3. Need more DL than LB's.

    I realize that. But the idea that we don't need LBs is absurd, especially considering we are converting at least two of our LBs to DEs.

    Bingo not to mention what we already have invested in the LB position. It's gonna be a FA vet pickup to play SAM. Wouldn't be shocked to see Nick Roach since he already knows the system and Prolly won't cost much.
