It's definitely a "the more you look, the less you like" position for me this year.
Even in my unspeakably bloated 23 Man Mock Draft, I ~ a frothing, ravenous fan of Excess, of Flankers, and of Excess Flankers ~ only called the name of one guy, a guy who is a very strong IR candidate!!

Oh, by the end of the weekend, we are going to have so many changing their tune on who they just said. haha
Only player i don't want drafted is a QB in the first three rounds.
hahah that was sort of my undertone of the thread i just wanted one place to look up if/when BB picks the guy that we hated and they turn into a superstar... e.g i can admit i wanted brandon spikes ( win) but also oderick (loss) from last year
Leshore. He should grow braided pigtails and buy a ruby/diamond encrusted kool-aid man chain.
Aldon Smith. I've rapidly soured on him after watching full games. He's all sizzle and I'm a steak guy. He occasionally will flash brilliance but is shut down for long stretches and he gives up when teams make it clear early that he's in for a dogfight.
Clay Matthews, Jr...Jr. Nice burst, nice motor. Other than that I think he's rigid and I see a lot of reliance on basic moves. There's a lot of counter-moves in pass rushing and I don't see his. This makes me question his understanding of the game. I also think he doesn't know how not to attack.
Ryan Kerrigan. You want a 2-down brickeater then draft Klug. If you're gonna be a bear, be a grizzly. I want an athlete outside. The more I break him down the more I return to my initial impression. He's a 43 left end. I like his game, dislike his fit.
-I'll admit it, I hate this OLB crop-
Cam Jordan. Over-ray-ted! Clap clap clapclapclap! I don't get nor believe the hype. He's no Alualu. Looks more like a poor man's Jarvis Green to me.
Any tailback before round three.
haha love it... only guy i disagree on is aldon smith... and i know he may turn into the aaron maybin of busts but i like his upside for such a young guy... i can see my love for him blowing up in my face in a year or 2's time
It's definitely a "the more you look, the less you like" position for me this year. I have no faith in Justin Houston or Akeem Ayers, I think Aldon Smith is seriously unready, Reed is overhyped, Acho is a nice player but no great pass rusher, Quinn is a talented cypher, and I love Kerrigan but don't think he really belongs at LB.
I keep coming back to the 2 Pittsburgh DEs as the guys likely to match fit and value. But I'm not swooning.
Amen to that.
Among the guys with 2-3 years starting experience and good production, I don't see "potential elite edge-rusher" and "solid all-around OLB" in the same package anywhere. I'd be happy with adding another "solid OLB" type who may be able to develop a decent pass-rush taken in the late 2nd or after. I would NOT be happy with a "potential elite edge-rusher" who may (or may not) be able to develop into a solid OLB, unless he's taken in the 3rd or later, but mainly that's because I don't believe that one edge-rusher, no matter how "elite" is going to come close to fixing the pass-rush.
IMHO, one or two solid, run-stopping 3-4 DEs who can kick inside on passing downs and get significant pressure from there without losing gap contain, plus perhaps a better slot corner, will probably help more. Without significant DL improvement, I have my doubts that any edge-rusher will even have enough opportunity to become "elite."
