Question 1: “Who would be the ideal LB to draft in Gus B.’s 4-3 defense?” -DrJWC

There once was Bobby Wagner

Then there was Telvin Smith

Introducing the new guy for Gus: Virginia Tech LB Tremaine Edmunds…

9. LB/Tremaine Edmunds

A quick riser. 6-5, 250lbs. Rare size/weight/length combo. Only 19 years old. Elite traits. Very high upside prospect. Extremely twitchy. Can be used as a LB or edge rusher.

NFL Comp: Anthony

Put him anywhere in Bradley’s defense, and he’ll contribute. I’m all aboard his hype train, and he will likely be my favorite player at 17 if the Chargers have the option to take him. Hopefully, Georgia LB Roquan Smith isn’t taken too early, as it’s possible Edmunds is the next guy to go.

He’s 6-foot-5, 250-plus pounds(!) and only 19 years old. He’s my guy for Gus Bradley.
