It would depend on his hammy and what you think will happen in the draft. This draft is thin at ILB. The three (arguably) "good" ones (Te'o, Minter, Ogletree) will probably be gone before we pick because of that. Sure, we can pick one up in the third or fourth round, but they're not going to start. I would rather we get the best DT available in the draft to improve the line, use a stopgap like Urlacher for a season or two and hope we get the same kind of benefits we got from Dawkins. Then hope we can get better chances in next year's draft. Would I prefer Al Wilson in his prime and a 100% solution to our ILB problem? Sure. But that's not available.
