Yeah, I’m not sure how many times I need to repeat this, but linebacker is obviously a bigger hole than receiver. All I’m saying is drafting a 4-3 linebacker in the first round isn’t great value insofar as success rates. There just isn’t much difference between drafting one in the first versus one in the third.The only way I'm taking a WR in the first two rounds is if I believe he's the next Calvin Johnson or Randy Moss.
The focus at the top of the draft needs to be adding impact players on defense. We've invested heavily on the offense over the past two seasons. We need to find an elite talent on the defensive side of the ball, preferably in both rounds 1 and 2. While I'd prefer it to be at S or LB, it almost doesn't even matter what position.
What happens in FA could change things slightly, but I still believe the focus for at least the first two rounds will be the defense.
That being said, we aren't going to have both OBJ and Landry on the roster long term. One is going to have to go. It wouldn't shock me if we traded one of them in the offseason, in which case I'd be OK taking a WR in round 1 or 2, but don't think it'll hurt the team that much if we don't.
