I’ve noticed that too. I don’t see anything special about this guy but I’ve seen his name on at least 6 mock drafts so far. I even went to YouTube to get a better in-depth look at him. Dude seems so plain Jane to me. I don’t see any DEs coming out this year worth of a top ten pick. 

So its not just me

This is why I don't believe in mocks

His name sounds dirty. To be fair 2 sacks on the edge fits in with this team.

Yeah, I don't get the Paye hype either.

 

As for Parsons, been hearing that he could be a dominant edge rusher if given the opportunity. Would he be perfect for a Joker LB/DE role in a multiple front defense?

 

Move him around like a chess piece. Would love to see blitzes with Parsons, Debo, and Foye. Maybe that'll get more out of Fowler.

I think you get more out of fowler if you can keep him off the trainers table....

This is where I am at as well. Top 8 pick you grab Surtain or Parsons if available. And thats a big "if", dependant on the direction of the new GM or Coach. They may fall in love with Wilson or Lance.

No sir it's not. I have even seen some mocks with him at 4 when Dallas was projected there. Ahead of guys like Surtain, Parsons, and the stud WRs. He is all bullrush and doesn't even really pop when put on the tape.

Not saying he isn't a player or won't be, but not a top 5 in my opinion. Not a Chase Young/Bradley Chubb talent in my eyes.

I get what you are saying, I just don't want us to go that route. The pass rushers to me in this draft that have 1st round grades (Currently) don't wow me at all.

1 year of production + Raw Pass rusher = Bad time in Atlanta

Beat me to it. Unless a DE has produced consistently and at a high level, and isn’t considered a “project”; don’t draft him. You’re literally breaking your own heart at that point.

If you’re going defense in the top 5 or really even like top 8 in this draft, it’s for either Parsons or Surtain. I like Parsons more and think he’ll be a star especially if he adds some strength and power to his game, but CB is a bigger need for us. I definitely won’t say no to taking Parsons and having potentially the best LB corps in the NFL though.

Not at all. I was doing research on some YouTube mock draft sites and literally ran into like 5 in a row that had us taking him. I thought I missed something. Lol

Lazy *** reporting and research from the draft "gurus.". The perception of a need is all they need.  Piggy backing on someone else's guess until it becomes consensus.

I agree. DE prospects look bad this year. I’m not sold on any of them in the top 15 let alone top 5.

I cant lie. I like Rousseau and he wouldn't be looked down on if he hadn't opted out. Paris Ford would be a first round option but I doubt hes taken until mid 2nd.

If he had put up another year like he did last season, it wouldn’t be as much of an issue. Unfortunately there’s only one season of productivity. Not a big fan of taking someone with that anymore. Too many unknowns.

I know bro lol. Like this is not the year for Edge at all in the top 5. Especially since I have a sneaking suspicion that the next coach we hire will be a 3-4 guy. 

3-4 and 4-3 dont matter man. Do you know that 290lb ends are rushing as LBs in a 3-4? Donald is playing end in a 3-4. His duties really hasnt changed. Neither has the duties of the 280-290lb LBs. There is little difference. We rush 3 and 5 now. So what will the difference be?

Some edge guys play better standing up than putting their hands in the dirt in a 3 point stance. Some play the same and it does not matter.

Fowler played outside in the Rams 3-4 and had his best year. He does not play well as a DE in 4-3 schemes. Swapping to a 3-4 would get the most out of him for sure. I also think it was a mistake to move Davidson inside to UT and try and bulk him up heavier with our current 4-3 scheme. In a 3-4 he could play at his college weight and at the 5tech opposite side of Grady. We would need a hefty 3-4 NT though to make it work or we will get absolutely slaughtered up the middle.
