Maybe. Tons of upside. Passes the eyeball test on the field, tackles well enough and consistantly around the ball and has ball skills. Playmaker ability. Paired with Davis could be promising. I think he could start, and do well enough.

And you're not concerned at all about having a complementary defensive end not named Cam Jordan than can be available for the Tournament?

Scary thought.

Later did we find out Cam Jordan was playing injured in the Vikes 2019 wildcard game. Another pass rusher opposite CJ is needed and necessary.

Myself, I would be more concerned about a DT first than another DE. Crush the middle everything else falls into place. I'm loving the Auburn guy DT/DE Marlon Davidson the more I look at him. I think he would make a huge difference in the D line.

RDE (2) 92 - Marcus Davenport, 96 - Carl Granderson, 57 - Noah Spence (FA 2020)

NT (2) 90 - Malcolm Brown, 95 - Taylor Stallworth, 77 - Jalen Dalton (RFC 2020)

DT3 (2) 93 - David Onyemata (FA 2020), 99 - Shy Tuttle, 98 - Sheldon Rankins

LDE (2) 94 - Cam Jordan, 91 - Trey Hendrickson, 97 - Mario Edwards

Onyemata, Rankins, Tuttle, and you've got Mario Edwards on Ready-5 that can play DT3...

Not sure we could even afford another one - what we're shallow at is Defensive End...

Keep an eye on this Shy Tuttle character in 2020 . That had to be one, if not THE greatest stiff arm last season. It was even more ridiculous in slo mo.

As a 2019 undrafted rookie, Ninja Turtle 18 tackles, 2 sacks and one historic INT off Matty Ice

That depends on health but is Rankins going to want a big contract, Ony just got his and Jordans contract is a constant. I don't count on Edwards. Hendricks I like. Tuttle, jurys still out. As far as Rankins goes Rankins is not that dependable, good when on the field but can he stay on the field? Hasn't lived up to his part of the deal with his draft status in my opinion.

I doubt there are 7 players we could pick up that would make the roster over what we already have available on roster. We have one of the best rosters in the league. ****ty teams can draft seven players that all make the squad. Quantity of picks are less important than quality for better rosters.
