    We should draft Khalil Mack. He seems pretty good.

    I want two of those guys in the 1st round. Just fucking do it. If you want the quickest path to building a defense then go get some pass rushers. It's one of the best pass rush class I can recall. Take two of these fuckers and get a CB/WR/LB with the other 1st rounder.

    @raiderfreak7 makes a heck of a point.

    Might be the best thing we could do to hide our LB's, safeties and corners.

    Get some NYG prime time pass rush going. Strahan, Umenyiora, Tuck, Kiwanuka. Anyone remember their cornerbacks? I fuckin dont.

    If there’s any merit to the theory that defenses are trending turnover centric then a couple of good CBs is a must.

    yes but let’s see if Conley pans out first. Get that pass rush going, you can get by with mediocre corner play if your pass rush is good, doesn’t work the other way around. We’ll have some cash to spend too, get a proven guy that way instead.

    I remember one of their safeties because Al spent a boatload of money bringing him to Oakland.

    Where, unsurprisingly, he didn't do shit.

    I’ll tell you what. Bryant always jumps out to me when I watch Clemson. That’s a big dude. Could be a good fit for Guenther ‘s D

    I got a chance to watch Josh Allen Saturday quite a bit. He's really stepped up his game from last year. I remember looking at him early last year thinking he was going to be in the draft and decided to go back to Kentucky.


    He looks stronger, faster, and definitely more aware of his surroundings. If he keeps up this type of play, he may get into the top 10-15 range. Really impressed with how he played Sat.

    Yessir. Rushing off the edge, even playing off the ball, the kid has it.

    I think a playmaker at each level would be great. Bosa(or Oliver), White, Thompson would be a steal.

    I don’t trust our evaluators to pick the correct DB in rounds one or two.

    I hope we avoid it at all costs.

    He's kinda being underrated yeah.

    Most drafts he's a DE worthy of a top 10-15 pick IMO.
