With two consecutive picks in the second round, I went ahead and addressed one of the glaring needs on the team in linebacker. While this year’s free agent linebacker signing (Dekoda Watson) is a high upside prospect, last year’s signing (Geno Hayes) was more of a transitional player who played decent but not well enough to solidify his starting spot long-term. Weak-side linebacker is still a position of need long-term and an athletic, instinctive guy like Ryan Shazier fills that need.
