If what we want is a marginal player in an important position, then he's our man. If he was the second best ILB, then no problem. But you look around at what most teams in the league have at ILB or MLB, and Hawk doesn't stack up very well - Jones even worse. Putting an athletic young ILB beside Hawk, then replacing Hawk with another quality young ILB in a year or so is pretty much what we need to do. Hopefully Thompson will get that done. Borland in the second or third round would help a lot. Just starting Lattimore over Jones would help some.


Jones is fine when he's healthy. Can also swing to OLB in a pinch.

Sure, he's fine . . . as a back up.

AJ would be a fine player next to a playmaker.
He's not a playmaker and we need to find one.

I agree with everyone saying he needs to be the second best ILB on the team.

Hawk for his career may not have made the most flashy plays, he just has done what is needed to allow others around him to make plays. Amazing how many times Hawk has been criticized for being dragged for a few yards on a tackle when it never should have been him making the tackle in the first place. Hawk is the backside LB on most plays and his main job is to not let the RB get a big run by cutting back and he does a pretty good job of that.

I don't think A.J. Hawk is the problem. I think Hawk being the best ILB is the problem.

Just HEALTHY lbr's inside and out, would make a world of difference.

But hey that's JMO,

Hawk's replacement is already on the roster, he just needs a little seasoning!!!!!

As tasty as it is, I don't think Sriacha is going to help any of our ILBs.
