But... I think there are some interesting signs we cannot ignore..
The interviews showed us last year, that this staff will interview who they like, I.E. Wolfe last year.. I think the writing is on the wall that we will be getting at least one safety maybe two early in the draft.
We also looked at a project OLB, this is someone who can take the place of DJ on the roster and be that coverage rotational SOLB.
This means we value coverage..
Irving could move back as at least depth and to compete for ILB. I think that's a real possibility..that doesn't mean we won't addresss MLB in the draft or free agency, but I don't think it's an absolute lock we are going MLB round one..
He sure is athletic, but, and granted i know nothing, he looks like he'd be better at weakside to me. He played a lot of games this year against spread teams and, from what i can find, spent a lot of time in nickel. When they were in more of a traditional base defense he looks like the type that gets caught out of position when you run at him, but is quick if you try to attack the edges.
