Good thing is he can play DE and DT in a 4-3 at 300 pounds. If it pans out:

Onyemata|Rankins|Fairley|Jordan will be a very strong run defense, with above average pass rush capabilities

There were 17 teams at his pro day. So I guess we will find out.

I dont think the LB were there in depth this year. Alot of 220lbers

I think its Anthony-Laurinaitis-Robertson this year.
You cant fix all the holes in one draft unless youve got the trade bait like the Browns and Titans

Lets be honest
-----Robertson-Laurinaitis-Anthony
Jordan--Rankins--Fairley--Richardson

Looks far better than what was on the field last year
One amendment: The speed rush package:

Jordan--Rankins--Fairley--Kikaha

Here's hoping to a lot of 3 and longs to get that package in...

He did run a 5 flat 40 at his pro day; pretty damn quick for 300 pounds, and benched 225 pounds 33 times...

I would think 17 teams sending reps to Canada to see one guy means he is more than just a project. Wouldn't it be cool if they knew what they were doing and he actually was a positive addition?

Re: Underwhelmed

We picked arguably the best WR, DT and Safety in the draft. I think all of them will be starters this year.

One of two every down DTs, Buckner being the other; Mayock and others think Bell was the best cover safety in the draft; and Thomas arguably the most well rounded receiver...

There isn't a thing unusual about that. That leaves almost half the league that didn't bother. He's got athleticism, and teams want to get a closer look. Again, I hope he turns out great, but nothing about 17 teams sending scouts to look at him tells me anything different.

He's a project, and will continue to be until he proves something. All rookies have something to prove, but this kid comes from freaking Canada. How did Akiem Hicks work out there, smart guy?

I see the athleticism, and it's interesting. But there are times to take chances, and times to fill glaring needs. Now, any draft pick can be a bust. But you have to play the percentages.

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

If it pans out, yes. It would be great.
