Sometimes in the draft you have to go BPA or look to trade out of the pick if a player of too much value to pass up is available. You think the Colts would have taken someone like Kalil or Blackmon #1 overall had they decided to keep Peyton Manning because they needed a left tackle or receiver more than a QB? of course not, they'd have traded the pick for an absolute kings ransom just like the Rams did.
and for the record if Te'o was there when we pick somewhere between 8 and 15 then yes I would absolutely snatch him because that guy is gonna be a leader of an NFL defense for a long, long time
If he is available absolutely run up to the podium as fast as you can
People forget that bringing in Teo would enable miami to trade/cut Dansby. Dansby's contract is very high and that money saved could be used to patch another hole (or even 2 holes) in Free agency.
Or they can keep dansby for another year as dansby can play all 3 LB positions, or have Teo at OLB until dansby leaves.
the bottom line is one move affects other moves. And dansby isn't getting any younger. His athleticism is going with his age. In fact both dansby and burnett aren't spring chickens anymore. Who do we have left ?? Misi ?? lmao
Yes, it's time to bring in some good young linebackers. Look how stupid Miami was not to draft Patrick Willis because Zach had one or 2 years left, at the end of his tenure. People said we already have Zach. lol .. as you can (hopefully) see, that was very foolish myopic thinking, with a total inability to look at the big picture.
ps- Teo has more true leadership qualities in his pinky fingernail than Dansby has had in his whole life combined. And this is a defense (and team) in dire need for true leaders who play with massive balls
