I feel like this dude is like a poor man's Minkah. A position-less dude who's always around the ball, can excel at ST while working in a rotation with Acho in certain defensive packages. Guessing Pace and Fangio liked his versatility and felt like he fell only this far for reasons unrelated to football and character.

Wasted pick in my opinion. I guess Pace will pick a punter in the next round? Either that or someone to add depth to the waterboy position.



If Michael Dickson is there in the 5th I hope we do draft a punter.

Sports Exchange speaks highly of him, for what it’s worth. Had him as the 6th best inside linebacker. Probably Timu’s replacement. May also prove out my theory that Kawasaki moves outside.

I’m just gonna gloss over this one. Basically replaces Christian Jones I guess. Just smaller.

This screams of Ryan Pace getting cute with this "I am a Division II hipster" shit.



Uh. WKU is Div I and had had 5 players drafted in the two previous drafts.

First and foremost late picks are expected to be ST contributors. This kid will be.

NFL did a blurb or two on Joel I and LB’s like him. A new breed of ‘undersized’ run and chase LB who are perfect for the new NFL.

Not gonna let this pick sully an otherwise great draft. But I don’t get it. Like at all.


This.

I'm scratching my head as Sweat was still on the board and a guard here would've been nice. I get it that Sweat's knee is a huge concern.

I think we need to hear Pace's PC.
