The Inside Linebacker Position

The next area that I feel needs to be addressed is the Inside Linebacker Position. We tried to address it with Foote, however he signed with the Steelers. Who should fill that roll? Rocky is said to be able to play inside as well as outside linebacker. H.B. Blades is an option. However would it be a smart idea to have 2 unsized ILB's? Maybe draft a guy like Brandon Spikes? Discuss your solution player and why?

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

Blades has the potential to be a good starter. Probably better than any draft pick, although we should pick a LB somewhere in the draft after O-Line and possibly RB are addressed.

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

I like the idea of Rocky if we keep Carter, however if he goes I would like to see a rookie like Sean Lee of Penn State, who is Football smart and be a solid starter for years.

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

Do we have any players with 3-4 experience on our roster? One of the reasons why I was pulling for the likes of Dansby or Foote, was because they have extensive 3-4 experience. I don't know how important this is or not, but it would have been nice to have a player with 3-4 experience.

Solution for this year or for long term?

First off i don't think that Rocky is neccesarily undersized for a 3-4 ILB.
They are many 3-4 ILB around his same size:
Copper/Siler,
Brooking/James,
DQ Jackson(go terps!)+Barton+Maiava,
Scott/Harris

I think our ILBs are set for this season.

London will be the strong side ILB(buck) and Rocky the weak side ILB(mack).

Blades,imo, because of experience playing SAM and his short stocky frame is a natural fit as a 3-4 'buck' and would be capable back-up to London.

Henson, Robert comes from TCU where i believed they played a 3-4 and he has good size and speed and showed last pre-season that he hits with good pop i think he could step in at either spot but especially the 'mack' position.

The team was high on Young, Darrel last year a young LB with good size and outstanding speed (4.5)

Fletcher and Haynesworth have played in a 3-4

Thank you for the correction.
I knew it wasn't a typical 4-3 alignment.

Fletcher has actually said that he's played in a 3-4 before.

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

I thought we cut Henson after his idiotic comments about us (fans).

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

One possibility is Jamar Chaney from Mississippi State. He is a very good athlete who runs in the low 4.5 range with adequate size and good range.

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

Rocky will move inside when we sign Joey Porter later this week.

Rocky is an ILB in a 3-4.
Wether we get Porter or not.

Re: The Inside Linebacker Position

I thought Brandon Spikes would be there when we pick in the 2nd round, now...I think he might be there when we pick in the 4th round
