    They think he will be a superstar in a few years and took the gamble. Gotta admire the aggressiveness to upgrade the pass rush this year.

    I think Ireland learned how to beat the pats watching the ravens in the playoffs.

    I'm not going to say anything negative. Lately, I've lost 2 cases of great importance in my life and I am starting to wonder if its just me, have I become so cynical.

    Have I lost touch or feel for this team?

    I've been banned of the DD board for my views, so maybe its just me.

    I hope Dion Jordan turns out to be better than Ronnie Brown, and Jake Long, 2 major busts in our history in the draft and in my sincere opinion.

    Didn't even think Jordan would last to us at #12.
    But to trade up to #3 was some balls. I was just talking to my buddy that Oakland could trade out.
    I said Miami was trying to move up, then I said Oak could trade to them. Give up 12 for 3 and a 2nd rounder.
    I figured we had traded to get Johnson. When they said Jordan I imagined Brady on his *** crawling to get up.

    Wow! I was shocked that we didn't nail down down Lane Johnson. My hope is that Dion is a Jason Taylor type player and brings excellent production opposite Wake. This was a big area of need. Man they must have totally loved the guy. He was probably #1 on their board. They were bold and got their man. IT BETTER BE THE RIGHT CALL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! or heads will roll.

    So, this means either Vernon sucks and they don't expect him to develop (we already know Odrick sucks....), OR they don't expect to retain Wake for many years...

    Either you're drunk, high or have been hiding under a rock. But "Jeff Ireland Is Better At Life Than You" lol. The best Defensive player in the draft in this is what you have to say. C'mon man!

    Guys this isn't our DE, this is our OLB. This guy played WR and TE coming in to college and played more in coverage than rushing the QB. This is a very versatile player. Our new LBs are Elerbe, Wheeler, and Dion Jordan. The amount of pressure we can put on the QB from different positions will be unstoppable. Didn't like this pick at first, but I think we can see how this team is planning to play defense. We are planning on creating mismatches on defense like we are offense.

    I would have still liked to stay put and pick Eifert, but if this pick works out he could be the biggest game changer in the draft. The first rd pick is supposed to be for drafting game changers and that is what Dion can be. I am starting to warm up to the pick. Injuries scare me but he can be a GREAT player.

    Great pick. I like the move. Jordan will be a fierce pass rusher in this league.

    Too bad he's not a DE. He barely, if ever, was in a 3 point stance at Oregon. He was an OLB who occasionally rushed the passer. He's too skinny and weak at the point of attack to be a full-time DE.

    The way you beat the patriots is by hitting Brady. Dion Jordan was considered a top 5 pick. We didnt reach for him and we only gave up a 2nd. If Ireland and Philbin think he's the guy then I'm fine with it. I would have prefered to stay at 12 and take Eifert, but this pick also improves our secondary. We got good value guys lets hope he's good

    That's what i'm thinking. It has to be their plan to play him at OLB and occasionally blitz him. Then he can also drop and cover guys like Gronk. Otherwise it makes no sense. There were better pure 4-3 d-ends out there. Curious what it means for Misi now. Maybe we play a hybrid 3-4 from time to time??

    To move from 12 to 3 and only give up a 2nd rounder as good for a guy like Jordan. I am very happy with this pick.

    I love this pick. Best defensive player in the draft. They will and already have a plan for his skill set. Didn't give up a lot to pull this off. Get brandon Albert now and this team looks pretty impressive. Maybe lattimore in the 4th

    How in the world can people hate this pick? They got the best pash rusher in the draft(compared to Jason Taylor), bookend him with Cameron Wake and the defensive line is scary good. Ireland swung for the fences and hit a home run with this pick.

    Not only a great pick but only giving up our #42 to get him.

    Fantastic.
