    Do you like tacklers? This guy isn't one.

    Interesting pick.

    I wonder how much Gray had a say in this. His system dictates that the linemen are bigger and absorb the OL, while i guess you have 2 more athletic LBs flying around the field, with the mean general in the middle. At least that would be the base look. With KW playing DE opposite Morgan, still not sure how its gonna work though (KW isnt a bigger guy)

    But, the part about TEs gutting us for the past idn how many years is very accurate. With Ayers and Zach maybe we can turn that into a strength. How is his pass rushing?

    This pick makes me believe that we will have a lot more looks on D, perhaps more 3-4 packages (Klug, Casey, Morgan, KW, Ayers, Colin, Brown/Will), it would be interesting.

    ----

    I hope they see a couple quality linemen (on both sides) that remain for some of our next picks. But still saying all that, i think ida taken either Konz or Still with this pick.

    We needed speed to guard TEs, but still...

    Obviously our DL is the weak spot. Still and Curry are both on board, and we go OLB. Confuses me a little, but I guess I trust the FO. Really wish we woulda got Curry :(

    I wonder if Worthy was on the board if we woulda went with him?

    well after seeing the raw freakish Jason Pierre-Paul turn into a stud after everyone thought he had no NFL skills , im all for giving Brown a chance. Dude could end up being a monster too.

    McCarthy can tackle for two.

    If he can shut down a tight end, or heck, limit a tight end to under 100 yards, I'm on board.

    FYI. Brown was a very weak tackler his first two years. Last year however he was a very solid tackler. He is not overly aggressive when it comes shedding blockers though.

    Pretty Weird Ayers SUCKS vs the pass and this guys SUCKS vs the run.

    I see as weapon especially for the future but since we have spoon I don't see him playing much.
