[QUOTE=crasherino;3531210]But that's assuming its really true. Are the Iggles truly against drafting a LB early or does it just seem that way because that's how its played out recently? I vividly recall Bit (and others) talking about how the Pats don't draft LBs early and then they subsequently took Mayo. Most teams are looking for players that will help them. I find it hard to believe that if a team has a deficiency in an area, it will adhere to some super-rigid construct that they have and stay away from that position.
Besides Al Davis, I dont' think any team or team exec is that stubborn.[/QUOTE]
I agree, I don't think it is true in most cases that's why I dismiss that line of thinking. I also dismiss the old, never draft a RB from Penn State or Maryland etc.
