IMO, Williams is the better player, so I think that means you should keep him at linebacker. Boley and DeMo are similar players, but DeMo is more athletic, quicker, smarter, and stronger than Boley IMO. I think DeMo is the better player and thsu would be able to make a better transition to safety, but we need all the help we can get at linebacker.
I agree, LB is one of the few strengths we have on this roster. If we can keep the core 7 guys like we did this year, and get them healthy next year, it will be one of the few brightspots we have on the entire roster! My prediction for 2006 is that DeMo will begin to surpass Brooking in terms of recognition as the top playmaker on our defense. Hartwell is going to come back with a vengeance. Beck and Boley are going to be excellent backups, and Ike Reese is the consummate role player.
Drafting a LB IMO would be a wasteful move. Right now, our starting 3 positions are set: Brooking, Williams, and Hartwell. And down the road, we already have our starters: Williams, Boley, and Beck. So why draft another LB? We of course could upgrade, but short of us finding a way to afford Julian Peterson, I'm not sure that's going to happen with a rookie. There are some good rookie LBs that should be available in Round 1 that would fit (Ernie Sims or DeMeco Ryans), but why draft them when we alreayd have 3 potential Pro Bowlers at the position?
Mora's comments on Davis were interesting to me, in that it would seem that he is not looking for Chauncey to replace Brady next year if the team chooses to cut him. He's going to stay behind Kerney. Which tells me that maybe the team is definitely looking at a RDE in the draft or free agency.
