I consider ILB a need, specifically SILB, and more specifically, on running downs. Short of moving Adalius inside in the base 3-4 (and starting a re-signed Pierre Woods, for instance), I think the position will be one we need to address in the offseason. Guyton may be the answer long term as a nickel ILB whose speed can be used in coverage or in blitzing. It remains to be seen whether he can be an anchor against the run. I believe one of the reasons he dropped was lack of upper body strength, so if he could put on some muscle weight, he might get up to the ideal weight/size we'd like at SILB. However, one guy whose measurables scream Patriots strongisde inside linebacker is Jasper Brinkley. 270 LBS, and can run a 4.7. He looked pretty good in the bowl game, so I searched his name here and saw a few forumers who were down on his play during the season. I know he's coming back from a knee injury. So, after the bowl game, all things considered, what's the consensus on his play and whether he'd fit for the Pats? I don't see many other guys out there with that size and speed who could potentially have that impact Ted Johnson had, that we've been lacking ever since Bruschi been asked to man the SILB position.
