Its not really a position of need. But, there are 8 CB's and 4 safety's still left graded 80 or better. There are zero LB's graded 80 or better left on the board.

For our 4th and 5th round picks, I would love to see these 2 players fall to us:

WR Jalen Hurd - Tall with great hands to replace Aggy

RB Devin Singletary - I have seen him play in person several times. His nickname is "motor" and the dude just doesn't go down. He is short and stocky and perfect especially for short yardage situations. But, he can also break them. I have never see a guy have so many broken tackles.
The Steelers sure didn't mess around moving up 10 places to grab Devon Bush! Stud!!

It was a bit of a let down. But, after digesting it a bit, it makes sense. Especially if they had Dillard in the top 10 on their board. That would definitely make him the BPA, and also fill a huge need going forward. We just need to hope the kid is as good as they think he is. I don't want to spend the next 10 years saying, "shit, they should have taken Josh Jacobs." I still haven't gotten over them taking LJ Smith over Witten.
