LMAO and here I thought I stuck my neck out. I hope your right. but he still needs a space eater.

He is not near as fast, quick nor is he near as strong. so be careful lol

If he put up those type of numbers I would not be saying a thing

Re: I don't want Rankins!

What is funny a lot of people saying who we should have taken or hoped we got and then look at who is still on the board of lot of there players have fallen and not even dropping out of round 1.

I like the pick, not in love with it but I like it. HIGH MOTOR GUY, NEVER GIVES UP. HUGE WORK ETHIC...

Rankins wasn't someone I paid much attention to until very late. It's hard to get excited about DT's, considering we suck at picking them. But it was definitely a position of need, so you gotta try it and hope it finally works out.

What I heard about him is that he's really quick. I think Mayock also said he's one of the quickest DT's to come out in the last few years. I think the only thing Donald has on him, from a measurable standpoint, is strength. Not that he's weak at all, but he's probably going to need to beef up a little. I like his explosiveness. I just hope it translates well to the next level.

If I had a nickel for every time I heard that, the NFL would fine and suspend me.

Re: I don't want Rankins!

I don't know a ton about him but he fills a glaring need. I would actually like to see us now keep addressing this position with our next pick and get Reed or Robinson. Rankins, Fairley, Davison, Jenkins and one more high value DT would make a solid rotation. If we can control the line of scrimmage I think we can fabricate pass rush in other ways.

I do believe he'll look gold in black and gold.

Re: I don't want Rankins!

Im good with this pick....need someone who can create pressure up the middle. DT is deep this year...especially space eaters. I still hope we get a pass rusher or even D. Jones from LSU because we need speed in the front 7.
