Is this why so many LB's were drafted?

Don't know if anyone's seen this yet, but...


From Steel City Insider: "Money Matters: The Woodley Dilemma"

http://pit.scout.com/2/966042.html

 

I know that there was little OLB depth, and that Stevenson Sylvester is projected as an ILB, but I still wondered why we took OLB's with 2 of the first 4 picks...

If there is legitimate concern in the front office that they won't be able to resign Woodley, I have to wonder if they didn't actually draft more for (very near future) need vs. best-on-board.  Even with all of the positive things I've heard about Jason Worilds, I still would have preferred them taking someone else, especially given his injury history.  I was fine with the Thaddeus Gibson pick, aside from my initial "What, another OLB?!?" reaction.

If Woodley ends up going on the open market next year, I think we might be in trouble.
