    Great player. But not a particularly big area of need. Only makes sense if we pull off the Albert trade. You don't draft a potentially franchise QB, then let his left tackle walk and let Nate Gardner or some other bum take over. Find cap space however you can (Marshall, Incognito, Bess (trade)) and get Albert in here. I'll wait to see how everything pans out before calling it a dumb move, but right now im scratching my head.

    Why would Tom Brady be scared of a guy who had 5 sacks last year? Jordan is not an elite pass rusher....he's better in coverage. I think he's going to get handled by NFL linemen b/c he's skinny and weak at the point. Werner and Carradine would have been better pass rush options, and we could have traded down for them!

    The Giants could've said the same thing. Then say drafted Jason Pierre-Paul. I wanted Eiffert, but a fierce, consistent pass rush makes your defense deadly. That helped the Giants win two superbowls.

    Was impressed with what I saw from Jordan, who could very well have ended up to the Eagles at 4.

    Considering what was given up, I liked the pick and aggression to go get him.

    5 sacks is not indicative of Jordan's talent. Dude is a freak athletically, and was not asked to be a primary pass rusher. He got his numbers being a highly versatile player, unlike Mingo who had crap stats as a focused rusher.

    You have to watch the tape to see what Oregon asked him to do and it wasn't just rush the passer. We could have this kid play SLB on 1st and 2nd down and then move him up to DE on 3rd ala Von Miller.

    Our 3rd biggest need is still a need. This pick is a steal for what we had to give up to move. Pass rush, pass rush, pass rush. That's the formula.

    For once, we're the not team getting caught with our dicks in our hands. It's good that Ireland is actually MAKING MOVES and getting players that can impact the team.

    It was definitely an area of need. Who did we have to rush the passer opposite cam? And cam isn't getting any younger. I agree that it's usually tough to swallow trading up. But we got an impact player. Watch out Brady!!! And I guess watch out EJ Manual?!!?

    Perfect pick, I stated before.. I was praying for a trade up for Ansah or Jordan.. We need a YOUNG pass rusher to learn opposite Wake. With wake, Jordan, Vernon, our stud DT's and maybe kaddu can grow into a better player, suddenly our pass rush is looking real nice

    Exactly. And I think that's the plan. This is what Daniel Jeremiah said was the biggest problem with how Oregon used him. He said while watching tape he kept screaming LET HIM RUSH THE PASSER! He was asked to drop back OFTEN for the Ducks and we can use him all over the place. I think he slots in and replaces Koa Misi in the lineup Day 1.

    More pressure on Brady = potentially more bad decisions?

    Like this concept. Get the playmakers on the field. Only thing that will determine this is his ability to learn 2 positions simultaneously. Tough, but doable if he has the intellect, desire, patience.

    So you just looked at the stat line then? No tape to figure out why he was the consensus #1 DE in the draft?

    The coaching staff, along with his comrades will bring DJ out to the best that he can be. Naturally DJ must follow suit. He's raw talent. If he stays on board mentally and physically, I'm pretty sure he will, along with the rest of the DL, strike some wicked fear to the offences. I think he's gonna be the opposing offensive coordinator's nightmare. Not to mention the QB, like Sir Brady. :chuckle:

    Mike Wallace was a good addition but I'm still not sure I see 25+ points per game. Need to add more weapons.

    No, i watched a lot of tape. But the tape i saw showed me why he only got 5 sacks....b/c as smooth and fast as he is, which allows him to cover in space, he's not big/strong enough to beat good tackles. When the tackles got their hands on him, they easily stoned him or redirected him enough to allow the QB to get rid of the ball. Jordan is a very talented player....very smooth, quick, long and athletic.....but he wasn't the #1 DE on my board b/c i don't see him as a DE. He's an OLB/pass rusher. I also don't think he was the #1 pass rusher right now. He was rated that high on potential alone, not on production, like Mingo. And the problem you have with drafting on potential instead of production is guys don't always meet their potential....especially when they are now going up against better talent than that guys they didn't produce against in college.
