I agree with everything said here. However, I'm torn on the LB options at 8. Jarvis Jones will be gone, and I'm not totally sold on Mingo or Te'o. Pettine's scheme seems to thrive on creative blitz packages while counting on CBs to really lock down their man, which obviously is only successful if you have top of the line CBs. I agree it's not the biggest position of need, but it could allow Pettine to run his scheme that seems to be successful with the right personnel.
