    I think Landry is back in 2022 but if not edge would be a solid choice early still

    It takes guys a yr to catch on in most cases

    There's always a chance, but when's the last time a decent edge rusher was drafted on day 2 or 3 of the draft? Serious question, I'm claiming complete ignorance on the subject.

    Maxx Crosby 2019?

    There are usually about 3 or 4 out of the top 10 in sacks - Trey Hendrickson, Zadarius Smith, Danielle Hunter, Chris Jones, etc, etc.

    Wow, that's insane to think Chris Jones and Danielle Hunter fell out of the 1st.

    For the record, I really wanted us to draft maxx crosby. Think we drafted nate Davis in the 3rd about 20 picks ahead of him, so not terrible, but we could've probably got Davis in the 4th.

    We drafted AJ Brown in the 2nd and Amani Hooker in the 4th though so hard to be upset about that years draft.

    Blows my mind how inconsistent these guys are drafting.

    Thing about that is that Chris Jones was that he was was always getting in trouble in school and was really lazy. He either really grew up or KC hides it well. And Danielle Hunter was a pretty bad football player in college.

    I did some digging 2 yrs back. Since 2000 theres only a handful of notable players at the position taken after the first rd.

    OLB is like LT, it comes at a premium price tag. But there are cases a team lucks out in the 2nd and 3rd rd.

    It would be a luxury pick amd we still have to draft for 2021 so probably wont go OLB early. But if we did Id fully understand why.

    With the Dupree signing, I do agree that WR & CB are most likely the go to route but do we feel like if Barmore is there at 22 we take him?

    If all the top CBs and WRs are off the board then I certainly think we could take him.....the DT group has got to be one of the weaker groups in this draft so he could be a guy that some team trades up for.

    I would be incredibly frustrated if we picked any other position in round 1 besides Edge, CB or DT in that order.
    We have a WR1 & WR2 so WR3 is NOT a premium position worth a first round pick. We should be able to get a legit WR3 in rounds 2-3.
    Edge and CB are the biggest needs still IMO but I’d take DT Barmore if he’s there at 22 for the added pass rush value.
    Landry and Dupree aren’t even close to enough at the Edge. We need waves of pass rushers and depth. Imagine if one of them got hurt and we had to put Roberson back in there!
