    Good measurables and tape. Should do well behind Vince, watt and hopefully clowney.

    Great pick IMO. I just find it odd however how some fans are still calling for Rick Smith's head. Most likely because the Texans went BPA instead of sexy need filling picks like Perriman or offensive players in general. This fan base never ceases to amaze me sometimes...

    He is a need filling pick. Inside linebacker. The biggest need on the team.

    Solid player who fills a need, helps the defense. Type of guys you love having on his rookie deal but probably don't give an extension.

    '14 Draft should ring a bell

    It's INCREDIBLE how LITTLE production was gotten in their first year.

    The book hasn't totally been written, but damn that was a horrible start.

    It's a little early to make that kind of call, no?

    Player type. Run stuffing linebackers bounce around see Brandon spikes

    Around here it's never too early to make way too early calls.

    Sorry, you must be confusing me for someone else, I'm not exactly the knee jerk reaction type.

    The 4th round pick would have been nice but they got their guy. You could argue they got 3 2nd rounders or 3 1st rounders.

    This guy next to Cushing, who hopefully will be even a third as good as he once was, coupled with even an average Clowney and playing behind Watt and Wilfork. That's scary.

    Now, couple that with an improved secondary, which will feature less of DJ swearinger.

    This defense will be scary. I think it is potentially tops in the league.

    Was hoping for Perryman from Miami, but i guess they really like this kid if they traded up.

    In related news, Draft Steal in the 3rd with The Jalen Strong Pick!

    Still need another safety, stop-gap at OLB and depth at the line. But it is looking good right now.

    I'm fine with what we've got, to be honest. I think we are great. Unless Irish Chocolate goes off the grid and doesn't take his opportunity of a lifetime in front of him. Then, you need another big guy in the middle.

    From here on out, I'd go with an offensive lineman, a running back, and then maybe a safety, in no order. I don't think safety is necessarily a huge need after signing Stevie Brown. I'd honestly look for someone that slipped and go BPA in the fifth, even if it's not a need.
