Looking back on 2011 Draft: OLBs
Ayers & Reed were discussed a lot here last year. Here are their rookie #s:
Ayers: 50 solo, 26 asst, 2 sacks, 1 FF, 2 Pass Def, 0 Int.
Reed: 31 solo, 14 asst, 6 sacks, 0 FF, 3 Pass Def, 0 Int.

Ayers went to a 4-3 to play OLB.
Kerrigan and Smith had very strong rookie seasons too.
I'd still rather have Wilkerson.
Another guy who really impressed was Justin Houston. He was a steal for the Chiefs in the third round.
Houston's productive for the chiefs. Still glad we picked Mo Wilks, he hit the ground running and will really blossoom in the next few years.
