Fox started Morgan(i think Del Rio was still the DC then) and Beason at MLB in Carolina as rookies. Will Witherspoon replaced Morgan in his rookie year as MLB when Morgan went down with injury.
if you look at the draft history of fox at LB, a guy like Olgetree would make a lot of sense, considering Fox has always had smaller more athletic LB's.
