tough question. He’s better than any off ball lb at the same college stage in the nfl right now I can tell ya that. Jerry said Navarro bowman and while I can see that bowman played de his entire college career before shifting to backer in the pros so there was some conversion questions there that this kid just doesn’t have. Like I said he’s taken to off ball like a glove.
I will just go back to what I’ve said prior to me he has a legit chance to be the next ray Lewis and in terms of college player he’s better than Lewis already. Just there was a while there where Lewis in the pros was the best player in football. Like multiple years even.
this kids got that kind of potential. At least to be a defensive mvp type and off ball lbs don’t get that kind of love. In terms of the off ball lb class say him relative to the other options this isn’t even in the same ball park. Other guys are good talent they aren’t generational talent.
to me the separation between this guy at lb and the rest of the lb class relative to the separation of the top wr for example relative to the rest of the class is not the same level.
parsons trumps all
I'm not argueing the point, because I can see a few different valid lines of thought, with respect to "big picture" philosophy.While I still side with my initial stance of going with the top elite level offensive skill player, I have been thinking more and more about this notion of taking Parsons.
Where my thinking is and where I’m starting to see more of the logic of going with Parsons is this.
I can see more of a trend heading toward playing defense the way MIA is this season. AZ under Vance Joseph is doing similar unconventional things to confuse offenses. And we know NE also does it.
Anyway, with more franchises wanting to copycat, that means a lot more teams will be looking for the same types of defensive players in the draft and FA to better fit that scheme. Thus it becomes harder and harder to get the best ones.
So, before the trend picks up more steam, I can more and more see the logic of taking a versatile stud like Parsons if he is somehow available.
I wouldn’t put it past he to lose just because we have the picks. This is the worst I’ve seen there defense play in years.Texans up against Cheats at half!
Belicheat BLOWS if he can't get a win in this one!
Another fake "goat" revealed as a hedgehog!
