Ray Lewis for the Ravens through most of the last decade.

I don't think you should spend a top 10 pick on the ILB position, but I do believe, strongly, that ILB play is still highly critical to fielding a top 5 defense.
Don't know if you caught it, but I gave you an edit in the other post. Reid did say the rest of the positions are very important too.
