Let me make it simple and easy to understand...
When you don't have a franchise qb, you take the guy that you feel has the best chance at developing into one and then you spend the next 3 years doing everything in your power to help him succeed.
If you already have a franchise quarterback, the only linebackers that are worth top ten draft picks are pass rushers.
I think Jarvis Jones could play inside in a 3-4 and be a three down back. He is really well rounded like Houston is. It would be really hard to pick out which of the four linebackers are blitzing between Houston, Hali, Johnson, and Jones. Plus you always have Arenas and Berry as wild-card blitzers as well. If we ran a zone-blitz 3-4 like Pittsburgh, you would literally be able to bring pressure from anywhere on the field and rely less on your defensive linemen to free things up.
