Is this the best Defensive Front we've had in years?

Recommended Posts

Long list of needs this off-season.

Qb, cb (assuming Norman is gone) og, ot, wr, edge.

Problem is we need above average guys at all those positions.

I'd like a cb high, and a edge as well. 

Maybe we can get lucky with a decent guard in round 3, wr as well. 

We need a qb who's got the arm strength and gunslinger mentality but needs polish and seasoning.. maybe round 4. Hell even someone like Dak Prescott.

Hopefully I'll be struck by lightning for saying this, but I think a guy like him could be better in this offense than he is in Dallas's as far as being a passer. A rookie similar to him would never be a Drew Brees, but he could win games.

I guess watching Smith for 10 weeks makes everyone look like an attractive option at QB.

You guys want to know what's hilarious? The Giant fans think they can still win the division. Odell Beckham made a comment that we can win the final 7. That team stinks and I got a good laugh out of it haha.

Stranger things have happened :unsure:

Damn! He looks pretty nasty on that rush. 

 

I'd like to see what he looks like with more snaps.

One of the things that has always befuddled me about pass rushers is some who are considered "speed" rushers are actually slow as for timing them in the 40, etc.  But guys like Galette and maybe this guy can have a quick first step and get low.

40 times are one of the most overrated metrics in pro football. 

 

Straight line speed doesn't necessarily mean much during the game.

I get that, just weird when 4.8 40 timed pass rushers are deemed speed rushers -- but like I said I get it, the quick get off and bend is more important than raw speed.  Though some guys like Von Miller has it all including raw speed.

I hear you. 

 

Von Miller is a generational player, though. 

 

BTW, do you think Bosa is that good? His brother seems like kind of a bust in SD (albeit b/c of recurring injuries).

Bosa was really good last year but yeah hurt this year.  His brother has been a beast in college but also hurt now.  Quick-strong hands (though neither fast) amazing motor and both can stop the run.  If they could stay healthy I'd happily take either one.

 

I'd love a speed pass rusher on this team.  On the board's mock draft two years ago, I took McKinley who looks like he's going to be a good one. 

 

This draft has some possibilities of guys who look to have some speed -- Polite, Allen (don't think either will be there at our pick), Ximines, Sweat.   Am starting to become enamored with Winovich from Michigan.  He's not a speed rusher but the dude is just a baller -- in that way he reminds me some of the Bosa brothers.  

 

There is a lot of hype for DTs in this draft and justifiably so but DE-OLB looks pretty deep, too.
