    Damn! You beat me to it! I was hoping we'd get an offensive weapon.

    Merged 2 simultaneous threads. I'll move them to the draft area after the weekend.

    Not a name I expected.

    This is the first time that I really can’t understand what the thought process is...perplexing to say the least.

    Guys, I’m not happy here. I’m so tired of drafting players that need converted to be other players. Sweat!?! If we wanted an edge, he was right there!! Instead, no, let’s draft a guy that’s underwhelming at his position and then try to change his position.

    Looks like the kind of guy you'd put at left end, either 3-4 or 4-3 under. Set a mean edge and hopefully collapse the pocket. Kick in to 3-technique in nickel, if he doesn't have the bend to be a pure edge-rusher.

    The thing that kills me is he was announced as a LB. So now we're taking a DE and converting him to a LB. I'm hoping ILB and not OLB.

    My process is if you don't produce in college I'm not interested; and Gary despite a stellar defense and defensive coach in Harbaugh, was just meh there.

    Okay so we spent big money on the Smiths, both edge rushers, and at @ 12 we choose an edge rusher?

    If they think about moving him inside maybe but I'm still trying to figure this one out.

    I'm sorry,I'll say what others wont.

    this is a trash pick. Underwhelming his entire college career against big10 (NFL caliber) linemen. Huge, fast, can't get in backfield.

    Every year the Big 10 shows us that they are a step behind the elite teams in college football and then GB drafts an underachiever from Michigan, with shoulder problems?

    Yes the Lions did, if we were going to draft D, we should have had Wilkins

    This is why while I've been trying to give Gute a fair shake, he's been looking almost worse than Ted Thompson so far with his draft moves.

    If this is another losing season we got, I want his butt fired at the end of it.

    These are not the traits you pick with the number 12 pick.
    • Production as rusher failed to match traits and talent
    • Rush plan is somewhat basic at this stage of development
    • Long-arm bull rush is his only real rush tool
    • Hands lack skill and have yet to be unlocked as rush weapon
    • Lacks classic hip bend to dip and run the arc
    • Runs himself around the pocket rather than working back under
    • Plays fast but with no regulator for control
    • Lacks instincts and awareness for misdirections and counters
    • Tends to lose pad level on inside counters
    • Doesn't come to balance consistently as open-field tackler
