Yes he was drafted for his safety/ILB coverage ability.
But to say he is a big loss and they have nothing behind him is a bit much.
Summers is 6-1 241# to Burks 6-3 233# Summers 4.51 40 Burks 4.59
Summers 4.84 three cone to Burks 6.82
Summers had 27 reps at 225 and Burks 18.
Summers had more experience playing ILB.
Iím not saying Summers is a shoe in, but to say they have nothing behind Burks is a stretch.
Bolton, Summers, Crawford and really Shelton.
No need to panic. We will get to see how good the ILB coach is.
And the other coverage option is Campbell and Greene in the SS/ILB role.
