That defense is loaded and really good. They don't need more defense, they need quality on the OL. If they fixed that they would be the favorite to win the east again this year. They've just started stacking some weapons up at WR to go with McLaurin, they've got solid RBs. They still have a question at QB but the biggest problem was the OL. I'd be shocked if they went defense.There is a lot of talk about Washington picking him up with the 19th overall pick
You are correct our biggest issue is the left side of our OLine. Our right side is set but that left side is suspect. We do need another LB because of who we lost to free agency. That is why there is a lot of talk about picking a LB at 19. The QB position has questions but we just picked up FitzMagic for 10 mil this year. And signed Heinicke for two years. We still have Kyle Allen as well. The QB position is good for this year as I see it as a pívot year. I say that as depending on how this season goes how they pívot with picks and free agency for the next year. If we pick up a QB it will be in the later rounds.That defense is loaded and really good. They don't need more defense, they need quality on the OL. If they fixed that they would be the favorite to win the east again this year.

For a while I really thought Zaven could end up in New England although most projections have him going lower. But he fits everything Belichick likes to do and the type of player he likes to do them with. The football IQ, the size, the speed, and the discipline makes him a BB type of favorite. But with bringing Van Noy back, they get Hightower back, and they've added so other pieces to the defense and offense, I really think the Pats are going to do what no one expects them to do in the draft and package picks to move up in the 1st and go after a QB. Bringing Newton back on a 1 yr deal shows no confidence in Stidham and Newton can be that bridge sort of like how the Dolphins used Fitzpatrick this year to get Tua ready.
I think Arizona would be a good spot for Zaven too.
One of the Steelers sites reports that Zavan has met with the entire Steeler staff, including Head Coach Mike Tomlin and General Manager, Kevin Colbert. This Steeler fan would like to see Zavan in Black and Gold. It has been a number of years since a Tulsa player was with the Steelers.
It's amazing when you look at that Int return just how fast Zaven was in his first 20 yards after catching the ball. Like he was shot out of a cannon.So the official 40 was 4.67 although several stop watches had him at 4.56. Quite honestly for LBs they should measure the middle 20 yds. And the 40 yd dash the way they make them line up is not a real football skill. A real football skill would be how fast can a LB go 96 yds for a game winning TD after a pick in OT. There wasn’t a player on the field that was catching him on that play.
