regardless, our linebacking corps has lost talent as a result of losing wilson. we can't get an equally talented MLB and, even assuming that DJ is just as good as AL at MLB, we won't likely get an OLB who plays as well as DJ did at SAM. again, this is our talent deficit at LB. there is no way our defense did not get worse as a result of losing wilson as of right now.

i'm perfectly willing to buy that something could happen during the draft (trade), or after june 1st that could impact my assessment of the defense.
I think DJ's game could do wonders in the middle, that's my outlook. I do believe we are losing talent in Al and that our defense has worsened as a result, but I think it's a little overblown. What I am worried about is the leadership Al brings, as we will likely miss that the most.

I think it is a major loss in terms of both talent and leadership. As for the "official" reason for the split, well, you can slap sh*t between two slices of bread and call it egg salad, but it still stinks. Not a great way for a guy like Al to be ending his career in Denver

I see the potential for DJ in the middle, but moving him will create a hole somewhere else that won't easily be filled. LB in round 1 is a nice idea, but pass rush is still the crushing weakness on the team and if that isn't the absolute priority on draft day I'll be dangerously close to going into "Hobo with a Shotgun" mode... on the streets there is only one law, and he is going to deliver justice one shell at a time!
