  2. But can he cover, he sure wasn't asked to do it much at Oklahoma? There is a lot of projection there based on his athleticism and my worry is he is another Stephone Anthony or Jarrad Davis. If we go the off-ball LB route, I think Queen would be a safer pick because of his value in coverage. You might not be a fan, but the NFL places far more value these days on a guy like Chaisson over Murray.
  3. I don't really know what happens with Kazee, but he struggled at nickel to start the year and looked much more comfortable at FS.
  4. I don't think it's because people doubt his ability to play outside, but rather he is the best slot corner we have on the roster and in many respects it's harder to find a good slot than it is a boundary corner. He did have issues in college with getting his head turned when playing on the boundary and was better keeping the ball in front of him, but nothing that couldn't be fixed with competent coaching. I'd have no issues with Sheffield playing outside when we're in our base 4-3 and then sliding inside in nickel, which is what he did the 2nd half of last year.
  5. Y is Kyle Crabbs scouting report on Chaisson. I know he's super high on Chaisson. He was very high on Brian Burns last year as well (had a top 5 grade on him) and I think there is a lot of similarities in their game. Crabbs does seem to gravitate towards versatile speed rushers.
  6. Agreed, generally speaking they provide more immediate returns. In this specific case, they'd need to be an upgrade on Foye in coverage to get the number of snaps needed to make that kind of impact. Simmons and Queen could be that guy, but Murray's coverage skills is not at that level at this point in his career.
  7. Henderson would have an easier route to more immediate snaps in my opinion. I don't think Murray is an upgrade on Debo and Foye in coverage at this point, so he's only likely to see snaps at SAM in our base 4-3. Henderson would, at the very least start on the boundary in nickel (with Sheffield sliding inside). Given we're in nickel (and other sub packages) 70+ % of the time he'd likely make more of an impact. In terms of defensive impact with our 1st pick, I think a penetrating DT or boundary corner is likely to have the biggest immediate return.
  8. I'm higher on Terrell Burgess than Geno Stone. Chris Williamson is another in the same mold as Burgess. I like both as Damorious Randall type players, who can play NB or FS.
  9. I don't think he's got the traits to stick as an edge rusher in the NFL, maybe as a base end that slides inside in sub packages. I get that in college his best reps came outside but he's going to have to win inside in the NFL IMO. Auburn's scheme certainly didn't do him, or Nick Coe, any favours.
  10. Maybe in traditional stats like sacks, but advanced metrics point to him being one of the most disruptive D-linemen in the NFL. When he's healthy, I'm sure teams appreciate his value and I've no doubt he'd get what he's asking for if there weren't the health concerns. IMO teams are afraid to commit that much guaranteed money to a player who's only played all 16 games once in his 6 year career.
  11. I think it's more the health concerns than lack of sacks.
  12. Seattle is still offering him more than we could at this point (~$15m per) and is still his most likely destination.
  13. I think long-term Sheffield is going to be one of the better slot corners in the league. Clearly the Falcons thought they could upgrade from Poole.
  14. Looks very optimistic, in fact Winfield, Hennessy and Chinn are all likely to go before Bryce Hall.
  15. James Smith-Williams, Edge, NC State is another guy I'd be taking a chance on. Super athletic dude and talented, he just can't stay healthy.
