    That would be awesome if DEN can get Shobert.

    Denver was rumored to be interested in Corey Littleton before the Rams tendered him so we might make a play for him if he doesn't resign with the Rams.

    Another option if Simmons is gone is Troy Dye in the 3rd. He's not as physical as Simmons but he does have the sideline to sideline speed and coverage ability.
    I would be really suprised if Dye made it to the 3rd round. He will be the 2nd ILB taken after Murray.

    The point is that he doesn’t have to be replaced soon. Plus his body lacks the wear and tear of the typical 29 year old linebacker. He should have a good 3-4 years left in him at least.

    Personally, I would totally understand if we just rolled with he and AJ again next year and tried to develop a draft pick or two behind them. There are bigger fish to fry, though it would definitely be helpful to get the true sideline-to-sideline athlete.
    Fangio will make the call about drafting a LB. He knows what we need.

    Isaiah Simmons is the type of coverage linebacker, inside outside, huge field his speed, fast for his size, chest piece you could only dream of.

    He’s missed A LOT of games too.

    Kelce murders most teams. That isn’t a realistic standard for linebacker coverage. Overall we’ve been fine against TEs this year. Not that I don’t think we need a better linebacker than Todd Davis mind you.
