    And how often do we play a true nose anyway? But yes, he could be a 3-4 DE like Simmons right? What am I missing?

    Yeah. I mean, we have Simmons. We may or may not have Jones. We might have a player out of Murchison/Tart/Mack, but I don't think you can count on those guys at all. This board thought Crawford was a camp body when he was signed and he started all year. We need to fill multiple slots here.

    I think this need is pretty much on par with edge rusher. I think you look at the crop of who you think you can get in the 2nd round at edge and at DL. If you think you can get a better DL in the 2nd, you go edge/DL. If you think edge looks better in the 2nd, you go DL/edge.

    We absolutely need another IDL, an Edge Rusher, and a fast cover corner. All three are essential to improve our defense from last year.

    And a couple linebackers, and maybe 2 more safeties. Hehe

    I was really surprised at how inconsistent our safeties were. They were rocks last year.

    I like Alim McNeill more that Barmore. His run D is better IMHO.

    I like Alim a lot and Marvin Wilson from FSU, both can probably be had in the 2nd.

    This thread has brought up an interesting question - when scouting a player who starts out slow but ends strong, how can you tell if he was just being lazy and turned it on, or if it just clicked and he improved?

    To me, that’s why you avoid one year wonders with a high pick. Being consistently productive over a few seasons should be a benchmark.
