People concerned he won't make 53 man roster? We're horrible at LB... He'll at least be a backup

A. J. Hawk, 2006, #5 overall
Clay Mathews, 2009, #26 overall
Nick Perry, 2012, #28 overall
Slight derail, but it sounds like Hawk might be on the bubble to not start this year. Mathews is obviously a stud though.

I agree that at this point a 1st round LB pick is likely, but we have a whole season ahead of us to see if JB pans out. It would be ideal if he does since we probably need to start thinking about finding KWill's replacement.

They're probably far from done at WR too.
