Player aside, my main point is posing this question is: Is reggie Walker good enough or is his long term status with the team viable enough for us to eliminate ILB as an early round NFL Draft consideration?

This, IMO, is much like the situation we were in last April with OBS.

Need more proof on tape.

if he continues to play and well, he can be future

if not, we need to get someone to replace him and SB who will be surely cut

Rounds 1 & 2? BPA and I'd hope that 1st rounder would be someone to improve the OL, especially a LT. An ILB in Round 2 would be acceptable to me as would a RG if there was legit value in either of those positions. (At this time, I have no targets.)

Being a big SEC guy, I will say Ogletree is a beast. I swear I think of D Wash when I watch him. So you would be getting a similar type of player. The drug thing will drop him. Broke his foot last year I believe. Fast. Very fast player.
If Andrew Jackson (love it) is there in the 3rd...oh baby. Western Kentucky ILB. Big boy, solid thumper. 43 MLB who can translate to the 34.
Oh and to answer the question; Walker is exactly the type of player you want to keep but will always look to upgrade.
So keep him and draft his upgrade next year.

Not to get off topic but how is Kuechly doing? I haven't heard much from him. Melvin Ingram is playing very well though.

I like Michael Mauti From Penn State.

As for Reggie Walker I need to see him more. He played good but I don't know if he long term yet.

I think you at least have to look at the position come next April, although I know the coaching staff loves Walker.

I think we could get by grooming a 4th rounder similiar to what we did with OBscho and Acho and let Walker and Bradley have the reigns next year.

I am all for taking the best player available for positions of "need" in the draft next year, and I know it's early, but doesn't it kind of feel like the offensive line.......and then everything else!

Maybe an ILB. Maybe an OLB. Maybe a RB or a perhaps TE depth....

Or MAYBE a LT and two guards!!!!!!!

If this year has taught us anything thus far, it's that Kolb can play with protection. Why wouldn't we try to greatly improve that.

I think a thread for another day is HOW CAN WE GET OUT OF LEVI BROWN's contract?

I all but guarantee Paris Lenon is back starting next year.

Was your comment on Levi's contract sarcasm?

Levi's contract is all but geared for this season if memory serves me correct.

It is, literally, a 1 year deal. There's no guaranteed money after this season.

It wasn't and you just answered my question...

Chances he'll be back?

Sorry Johnny, I wasn't being snide, I was legitimately wondering if that was sarcasm or not.

Chance he'll be back? Couldn't even say. 50-50 I guess. All I know for sure is, we can cut him with ZERO problems.

Levi was coaching OT during the Miami game.

They seemed to improve as the game went on, whether Levi had anything to do with that is a mystery.

$6 mil for an OL coach, possibly a replacement for Grimm.

The only problem that I see with cutting Levi Brown at the end of the year is that teams don't let legitimate left tackles become free agents, so free agency will likely have no one that's better than him. If he is not coming back, the team needs to have someone better in mind, whether it is draft or free agency. His contract next year is for $4.75 million with a $250,000 workout bonus, so with that contract, he will either be the starter in 2013 or on someone else's team.

This. Gotta hang on to Levi through next season, while either a rookie develops or Potter can improve enough to compete. Even then, if Potter doesn't add at least 15-20# of muscle this year, IMHO he might not even be in the equation as he's just so light in the lower half.
