  • DE in the first round?

    I know it seems like the movie Groundhog Day but we may be looking at a DE again in the 1st round.
    JPP coming off another injury and Kiwi in the final year of his contract, Moore showing speed but not enough strength last year and a little spindly for the position.

    No matter what our 1st pick is shaping up as an OT, DE or TE I think.
    Perhaps if a game changing WR is available we might go there as well.

    It still feels like a DE or OT to me.

    Thoughts?
    No one remembers who came in second.

    My thoughts are the only DE worth the #12 pick is Clowney who will be long gone. DE in the 2nd round is more likely. Donald, a DT is a solid pass rusher who would be a great addition for the pass rush. Unless we trade back, I dont see us going DE in the first. The need is there though.
    WE ALREADY HAVE A GREAT RUNNING BACK:

        Can't see DE in 1st

        nowhere near value at 12

        Donald is a possibility

          There are no good DE after Clowney. Zack Martin is the pick.

            Barr is also possible. Situational pass rusher is still a pass rusher

              I dont follow college ball but ive heard Clowney has questionable work ethic. Any chance he drops?

                I would assume it's possible. You do have to wonder how much they like Ealy. I think it's certainly more plausible than OT much to everyone's chagrin. I think you're omitting DT. A passrush can be generated anywhere.

                    Yes. To number 2 overall.

                      Really no DE worth taking at #12 so I doubt that happens. I think that's why we're going after Ayers right now.

                      I could see us taking a DE in the 2nd round or later.

                        Ealy seems like one of those guys that front offices would rank higher than the media/fanbase. I could see him go anywhere from 10-20 easily.

                          I've been saying the same thing for weeks about Ayers, if they signed him now i think we would be pretty set going into the draft.

                          1) Evans
                          2) Dee Ford
                          3) Nicklas

                            I'd be so happy with those 1st and 2nd round picks

                              +1

                              It would be a reach to take a DE at 12, although I am sure that we wil take one later in the draft
