See this is why I didn't like taking Rankins, I'd rather see more production in his stats; we could have signed a space gobbler or drafted one in latter rounds...

When you draft a 3-tech that high, I'd prefer an Aaron Donald, and we're getting Sedrick Ellis 2.0...

You're totally on-point and correct that Rankins is freeing up people, just don't agree with using the 13th pick like that when we could have a more valuable skill position like a CB with that high a pick...

Hopefully that can be addressed come the next draft ... or a medically cleared Fairley who is already on the books.
