    To me OLB is a bigger need than FS right now. However, at 12 I think Earl Thomas is a better player than Morgan, JPP, Graham or Kindle, all of which is highly arguable based on peoples personal opinions. I personally think Thomas has more upside than those OLB mentioned, but his size does concern me as to being able to hold up physically and not get injured in the NFL. With Morgan I'm concerned about his ability to transition to OLB, with JPP I'm concerned that he's a one year wonder, with Graham I'm concerned that he has limited upside and Kindle I'm concerned about his ability to play the run.

    I do agree Iupati and Long...that's a lot of beef on one side, that can open a lot of holes

    Interesting

    Dolphins don't need Lupati, they have Nate Garner at 6'7 and 325 pounds just remember the hole they opened during the Panthers game for Ricky.

    That's true I wouldn't be too thrilled since we are picking at 12. If we did not have a lot of holes to fill it would be a nice pick.

    Couldn't have said it better myself. We need OLB help the most but the talent level suggests it needs to be taken care of in the 2nd and/or 3rd. E.Thomas, D.Bryant and even CJ.Spiller are way more talented then any OLB we could pick at 12.
