Thread: Best Pass Rusher in the Draft

    Best Pass Rusher in the Draft

    Andre Branch from Clemson.

    I know its a little late to introduce a new 2nd round prospect but this kid has the quickest first step in the draft, i think its worth mentioning.

    He's long at 6'4 and lean at 259. had a short shuttle time of 2.25, tied for second fastest in the draft at his position.

    Dont be surprised if we pick this kid in the second.

    If you dont believe look this video and watch were Branch is by the time the QB has the ball in his hand.

    Mayock and a lot of other people are also really high on Chandler Jones from Syracuse.

    Mayock thinks he needs a little time but said in 2-3 years he may be the best defensive player in this draft.

    He Mocked Jones going to the Bears to Book-End Peppers.

    Quinton Coples could also be one of those guys if reaches potential as well.

    So it will be interesting to see what happens and who falls to us.

    I mocked him as our first round pick in February. I like this kid a lot.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VjJGtzqR5Mo[/quote] .Not to mention he is tossing down a 255 pound QB to the ground like nothing. I could see it. He has the measurables the Giants look for. If they want to get rid of Osi he is probably the best option as a pure edge rusher.I Wouldnt say he is new. He has been discussed all year long. Ive cut like 5 of his games

    i like nick perry as an off the edge pass rusher...

    and if we want someone to strictly try and do what osi did whitney mercilus is capable, awesome speed rush and he causes a ton of fumbles

    Agree he will not be there at end of second- some have him going the end of first. My concern is that some have said he fits in a 3-4 system as an OLB. The last thing I want us to try again is to fit a guy into our system who would be better fit for a 3-4.

    Nick Perry would be better fit for 4-3 DE. IMO
