Re: DL Reconstruction…so far

Van Ness is very raw (he literally has one move in his bag) and looks like he’s going to need to take some to develop. I think taking him in the top 10 is a bit of a reach his tape and production don’t warrant that. Well...he declared after his redshirt sophomore season, didn't he? Yeah, he's raw. ...

Re: DL Reconstruction…so far

I think Billings is our NT and Walker is our LDE. Consider calling them both strong side DT and DE. I like that for the run. And I think Walker can slide in to DT in sub packages depending on how the rest of the personnel play out. I think that's probably correct. At least at the moment. I like Van...

Absolutely not.

I'd rather trade down from #9, and take Gervon Dexter.

It most likely is a moot point, though. Poles will stay put and draft a DE...maybe an OT...

You're probably right, based on Poles' comments. But, if he ends up being a starter, he won't be the starting 3T.

As I said earlier, I don't think that guy is on the team yet.

Looking back at the LBs signed, and Walker being more of a 5t DE, could we be low-key switching back to a 3-4 base? Or even some kind of 3-4/4-3 hybrid? Nope. Absolutely not. The only difference between a 4-3 and a 3-4 is basically how may guys have their hands in the dirt. Well...sorta. There's a ...

I just can't wrap my head around spending 18M on this when all the talk was "don't overspend on an off the ball LB". Did Poles actually say that? I mean yeah you'd trade Roquan for Edmunds and Edwards all day long. But that wasn't the original plan at all. Maybe not...but should we care?
