  1. I remember the disappointment with the Duke Riley pick having watched him in college and videos of him leading up to the draft. Never thought of him as a stud LB and that proved to be the case. As for Mykal Walker I again was disappointed when the pick was announced, albeit for a different reason...I'd never heard of him or watch him play and there were some solid names still on the board. I thought oh no here we go again with another no name small school TD draft pick. But 10 minutes later after doing a little research on him and watching some videos of his game I was actually pretty
  2. Walker wasn't on my radar but looking at 5 minutes of video of him I'm not sure why he wasn't. Dude looks like a solid player. What do we need in a LB that plays the Campbell role?...can cover, has physicality / is a good tackler, ability to rush the passer periodically, instinctive...this guy appears to check all these boxes. Played 2 yrs and was all conference first team both years, that tells me that he's consistently good. MVP of his bowl or championship game, again tells me the guy makes plays. Going into today I was struggling to find a LB that I really liked. I had Troy Dye on
  3. The main position of need is LB to replace Campbell but could definitely also use talent at DT, Edge, S, and arguably TE & QB. Guys I like include (in no particular order)...- Bradlee Anea, Edge Curtis Weaver, Edge Shaquille Quarterman, LB - intriguing…good tackler Michael Divinity, LB - character issues likely mean not even on our board but he probably the best guy talent wise to take over for Campbell. Troy Dye, LB - like the instincts but lacking bulk Jordan Fuller, S Jason Stowbridge, DT Leki Fotu, DT Richard Lawrence, DT
  4. I know some people hate comps to the Seattle defense but I think the hope is that Davidson turns into our Michael Bennett. He played mostly defensive end at AU and was productive there so I definitely think we drafted him to play DE but really like that he can slide inside a bit.
  5. I hear ya with the frustration...I was frustrated with the DB pick in round 1 in are part because we haven't invested in our defensive line and we NEED that!!! But I have to admit, seems like TD was right. We got a really good CB and then 3 more DB's went in round 1 while no (zero) other DL players went in the remainder of round 1. Outside of Kinlaw who I would have taken at 16 my preferred pick was Gross-Matos. YGM went at 38 so turns out I would have arguably overdrafted him. And while I believe YGM would have been the pick if he slipped to 47, Marlon Davidson is a good pick and I
  6. My preferences day 2 are YGM, Winfield, Delpit, Uche as an initial list
  7. This! I truly hope Terrell turns into a stud but **** TD avoids the DLine like the plague. I guess that's what we get with a former DB scout. #frustrated
  8. Definitely an intriguing draft. I like the players you drafted. I don't love giving up next year's 2nd and Kazee.
  9. I'm a big fan of Gross Matos. If we don't get Kinlaw then he's next on my list. Getting them both would be amazing even if it does cost us a 3rd round pick. It would definitely help turn our DL weakness into more of a strength. Clearly Blank said fix the OL after the 2018 season and I've felt all along that he said fix the DL after this past season. We should find out shortly if that looks to be the case. Also, I'm not sure about his pass swatting skills but he's a prototypical DE with both pass rush skills/technique and physicality to set the edge / play the run.
  10. That would be a fantastic first 3 rounds!!!
  11. I'd be all for a trade back scenario like this...especially if Kinlaw is not available at 16.
  12. This is a great take...definitely don't see Davison as a game changer. He's a rotational piece. Brown is a game changer. That said, my gut tells me that Kinlaw is their guy and they are confident that Brown will go before Kinlaw...so don't see them making a move until Brown goes off the board.
  13. Not a huge fan of Chaisson but do like Johnson & Chinn.
  14. Love the write-up. I agree that we should not pick a CB who specializes in man coverage if we are going to play mostly zone. I like Arnette...probably day 2.
