    One mock draft had this guy at 78; I hope the Texans know something they didn't.

    But the overwhelming majority of mocks had him in the top 20...so Im guessing the guy that made that mock is a little out of sync with reality.

    What do all the best DEs in the league do? They force fumbles. I love this.

    What did Kiper and Gruden say about this guy? Did they like the pick?

    Dude looks like he goes balls out.

    Wade's gotta love that.

    Wade said that they considered trading up to get him but then decided to stay pat. This would indicate that they had this guy rated above Hightower.... really?

    I was pissed when NE traded up in front of us to get Hightower. So frustrating.

    I do not mind being known as the team with the badass pass rush.

    Man, this guy really reminds me of Mathis and Freeney. I would will be doing backflips if he turns out as well as them.

    He is a better fit with more upside than Hightower

    We already have our 3 down ILB in Cushing.

    We're not going to take a Weakside ILB in the first round. That might be the least important position in our defense, and we already have Sharpton, Bradie James, and Dobbins to compete there.

    Watt, Smith, Barwin, Reed, Mercilus ... what a group :eek:

    I wanted an OLB, Wade is running things. Sucks for Luck.

    Gruden pretty much likes every pick, but yeah he thought this was a great addition to our already potent D. Said he fits Wade's philosophy perfectly in our hybrid 3/4, 4/3.
