Were You Happy With The Jalen Collins Pick?


Recommended Posts

Were you? Now don't get me wrong, Collins is a great player and I'm excited to have him, I don't dislike the pick BUT I do feel like we could have addressed other needs with the second pick. When our pick came around and I saw that Eric Kendricks, a player many thought would be mid first round was there, I was elated. Randy Gregory as well but we'll leave him out of this to avoid flame battles.

Anyways, my point is, there were a couple of other guys I feel should have been the pick at 42, but it didn't happen. I'm not saying Collins was a stupid pick, but I most definitely had my eyes on a few other guys I feel represented bigger needs.

Anyone feel the same way?

Love the pick!

We got a 1st round talent in the 2nd round. A long prototypical corner that Quinn loves for his defense. CB was a need as our only ones on the roster were Tru, Rocky, Allen, and Adams.

Not mad at all, but I would have preferred Randy Gregory there. Filter or no filter.

Even if Collins is a great pick, I don't like it. Pass rush has been our biggest issue on defense for half a decade. When you have the chance to get 2 best passrushers in any draft, you do it. Because that opportunity will not present itself next year, or anytime soon.

This was sort of my feeling in the fact than Jalen Collins is a great pick with a lot of upside, but just feeling that general team needs were elsewhere.
