There is some wisdom behind selecting Jimmie Ward. He would eliminate the need to select an impact LB, since we could move Ward to LB in Nickel.
They certainly do have some good options if they can think outside the box. 3 good Safeties,instead 2 could be the wave of the future. It certainly makes sense, the way things are headed, and is preferable, especially if you have an impact guy like Ward to step up in the box. Count me in as agreeing that this is a solid option.
The only concern would be stopping the run in Nickel which I think this line-up.would excel at.
