Cyprien is likely to play some nickel LB and we just extended Woodyard. There's no more snaps to give out.

I understand but Williamson (78.3 run, 70.3 coverage) is in his last year and only a run stopper.  Woodyard is basically a run stopper as well (79.6 run, coverage 68.7).  So we still need a 3 down LB.  We will always have one LB on the field and need someone better than these guys.  Just because they extended Woodyard with a low deal doesn't mean they expect him to be a 3 down LB.  Guy can't cover TEs or slot WRs if his life depended on it and those two guys are a big reason the defense had issues.

Notice the total lack of interest in inside LBs?  Makes no sense to me.  CBs, WRs, DE/OLB, and a few Ss. 

Nobody is making their team with high ILB picks. The position has gotten so weak. Unless they can cover TE or beat up a DT inside, what use are they?

Certainly not 1st round.

Exactly. It really is covered well. Especially no reason to throw a 1st rounder at a guy with a troubled past like Foster who can't read X & O. 

The guy, with the right mentor, might turn into Ray Lewis out there. Hopefully Chris Carter & Randy Moss types get to him before the Aaron Hernandez & Pacman Jones do.

Not sure what your point is.  I do know virtually all the good 3-4 teams have 1st round talent guys as ILBs. Ours suck.  Look for yourself.  Pitt. Ravens, Pats (they also drafted Mayo a while back real high, have Hightower now), Chiefs.  49ers have a stud in Bowman.   So yes, they have and we need one stud ILB to play all three downs.  It doesn't have to be Foster either.  Really needs to be someone like Cunningham who is smart enough to call the defensive signals.

In fact it is totally ass backwards thinking.  Remember Dick Labeau was the DC with the Steelers and they drafted Shazier when they still had Timmons playing well.  But what the hell does Dick Labeau know?  Oh, Timmons was a 1st round pick and so was Shazier. 

And strange how the Ravens decided ILB was such a shit position they used a 1st round pick on Mosley a few years back.  Oh, he was the 17th pick, about where we should be taking Cunningham.  Not sure but apparently that Ozzie Newson guy is an idiot.

And by the way I was the one telling everybody that Cyprien would be playing NLB.  But we still need someone to man the middle.  I predict we will play more 3 safety than about any other formation meaning....... yes, the ILB better not be a POS.  That guy needs to stop the run, blitz and cover.  Basically do it all.

His learning disability is an issue.  The company he keeps is an even bigger issue considering he will have millions for them to squander.  Late 1st round pick at best considering money enhances bad life decisions at his age.
