Making a Case for Drafting a LB in the 1st.

I know the draft is knee deep in talent on both lines, but there is not as much talent at LB more so in the ILB position, we have 2 talented LB on the roster at the minute in Carter and Lee but no one has yet to shown they will be the starter at the SAM spot. So I am looking at this from a different angle rather than manning the trenches with the 1st pick.

I have looked to go LB at 18 and using DraftTeks top 200 board (as of 20th Feb 2013) I have looked to select players who will be available when are on the clock at 18, 47, 80, 111, 144 & 175 I have not traded up or traded back for any additional picks.

I have also not gone for any of the stand out stars at the recent combine as my inital outline of this post was done around 1 week ago. I have also not added any F.A. additions or cut any players.

Round 1 #18 Kevin Minter LB LSU 6-1 245
Round 2 #47 Cornellius 'Tank'Carradine DE Fl.ST 6.4 265
Round 3 #80 Brian Winters OG Kent State 6.5 310
Round 4 #111 Menelik Watson OT Fl.St 6.5 320
Round 5 #144 Kenjon Barber RB Oregon 5.11 195
Round 6 #175 Zeke Motta Safety Notre Dame 6.2 215
