Someone else I would consider at OLB if he fell low enough is Vontaze Burfict from Arizona State. A LB core of Burfict-Maualuga-Rivers would be pretty nice for years to come.
Actually he is a very good pass rusher (Hightower) even though he is so big. Rey has been a solid pick but we need playmakers and let the best man win. Although I think Rey would stay on the field just fine with Donta outside.
