    I think they are boxed in because they agreed to it prior to the season.

    Dudes in the bottom half of the first round haven't done much the last few years. Montez Sweat and TJ Watt look like home runs. Chaisson, LJ Collier, Charles Harris, Tak McKinley, Taco Charlton, Shaq Lawson, Emmanual Ogbah didn't do much of anything.

    Is there a player we should trade up to get? This draft is supposed to be fairly deep in Edge talent.

    Outside of Paye, who doesn't really look to be a 3/4 OLB anyway, most mocks have us with our choice of edge guys.

    That’s what I thought. There is no Chase Young in this draft?

    None of these guys are sure fire producers at the next level. This could end up being like the 2015 draft where the first round edge rushers never did much in the pros (Fowler, Beasley, Ray).
    I’d much rather commit to a double digit sack guy in Free Agency too.

    At the beginning of the year, everyone had Rousseau as a top 5 pick. But since he only played as a redshirt freshman, his stock appears to have dropped. If he is there for us, I don't think we can not take him.

    Still could be a miss. And I doubt even if we hit one rookie 1st round pick solves our pass rush issues.

    No, and if there was we wouldn’t have the draft or trade capital to move to get him.

    Honestly, JROB has already proven that he and/or the scouting department(s) cannot land great pass rushers via the draft....

    There's been 2 DL, DE, EDGES he's landed, and both of them had ties to repetitive/major injuries causing draft stock demand to go down... Harold Landry & Jeffery Simmons

    .... He might be better off BUYING pass rushers so he can avoid playing guessing games.


    I'd be fine with signing a Free Agent, cutting Vaccaro (saves 5 million post June 1) and drafting our SS for years to come in the first round -- that way if you take an EDGE in the 2nd round and he doesn't produce right away, law of average says your Free Agent piece should help with some of the load...... but that last part we saw last year too, only problem there was NO EDGE taken in the draft..
