Does he? He's a 3rd round guy that can't sniff the field.
As far as the corner schematically, yes, yes we really are. Before last year's draft I said to draft Von Miller they needed to have a proper plan in place to use him and compensate for using him.
Well, guess what:
- We have a #2 overall pick at OLB
- We have another first round pick that people claim is "probowl" level
- We have a MLB that was a FA priority to the tune of 12 million dollars
- We have a former LB coach with a history of maximizing his LBs performances
And LB is hands down our worst unit on Sundays (unless we grade purely off sack #s).
