Won't have to. He'll drop.
But why would we as fans want another soft, overrated Samoan.

Exactly. I would probably even take Rey with talent although Manti is probably a better person and leader. You are def not getting Ray Lewis or anything with this guy, I will be ****** if the Bengals pick him up unless its as an I drafted free agent (obviously someone will take him in the first or second, I would just be upset if we even drafted him).

That's Ogletree. He was a safety and they converted him to MLB.

I like Burfict too and think he exceded expectations big time for sure. However I don't think he is a real stud in coverage either. Better then Rey for sure. I do think he is far and away better at reading plays and I would be ok with him in the middle or WLB.

I read somewhere that Lamur might be in the mix next year to start. Howard, Burfict, Lamur? That means they are one injury away from V Rey or Skuta playing. IDK we need an upgrade in talent at the LB for sure. I wonder though if they are confident in getting a guy later or as an UDFA since they have had luck with that. The last two LB drafted high haven't worked out so well.

I read today that Dion Jordan is out for a while with an injury, that was a guy I though could come in and play LB for us next year.

Lofa 1 year wonder
Rey 1 year wonder
Manti-maybe not but most likely 1 year wonder.
I think burfict can play mike and beast in both run and pass defense. His instincts and athleticism makr him a fantastic player,he makes up for his speed very well. With that being said...I say we draft either chase thomas, alec ogletree or sean porter.

No way he is not fast enough and as far as i am concerned similar to Maualuga.

After the national championship it looks as if he may fall to us.

Before the NC game, I liked the idea of Cincy doing whatever they could to draft T'eo, now I'm not too sure about it. However, if he is available at 21, I think they should pick him and plug him at Sam. Rey isn't great, but he is not the weakest link in the LB core. Manny Lawson is horrible. I love the Idea of Burfict (Will), Maualuga (Mike), T'eo (Sam).
