    Kevin Minter from LSU is a good 4-3 MLB prospect. Nico Johnson from Alabama is also another nice prospect

    - Paris Lenon / Philip Wheeler: both are career 3-4 guys but have true knack to get to the ball.
    - Erin Hernderson
    - Thomas Howard: torn ACL this year, but maybe will come at a discount due to injury which should hamper him once healed. Great stats through the years with CIN, at his prime 29yrs old.
    - Bradie James (31 y/o) / Barrett Ruud (29y/o): both are on HOU and I would believe they will keep 1 and let the other go. Ruud proved his worth in TB with 100+ tackle years for 5 straight years. James was DAL's ILB and had very good stats as well

    I really like Thomas Howard and Philip Wheeler as my two to go after.
    Obviously a MLB off the street or through free agency saves you from having to burn a draft pick. So, another London Fletcher or Takeo Spikes type acquisition please!

    Otherwise in the draft: Manti Te'o in the 1st. CJ Mosely in the 2nd round would be a gift.
    Shayne Skov, ILB - Stanford?
    Kevin Minter, ILB - LSU in the 3rd.
    Max Bullough, LB - Michigan St in the 4th.

    Te'o is certainly going to be under consideration, depending on where the Bills pick. I think Barnett is the bigger concern. He was an excellent outside linebacker, but he's lost a step this year compared with last year, and he's certainly not going to be any faster when he's another year older. I think Bradham is going to continue to improve as he gets more experience. He has close to elite measurables. We could stand to upgrade from Sheppard, but if we don't right away, I don't think it's going to kill us.

    We need a 3 down LB in the worst way. It could be an OLB or MLB, but we need one. Someone in the mold of Lavonte David, I like Arthur Brown.
    pya I'm big brown fan as well, really reminds me of Jon beason
