Phillips may be #1 off the board for Edge if not for the Concussion issues..or even with! Big risk, though!I wish Jaelan Phillips wasn't such a concern with his concussion issues because his pro day was off the charts. Watching his footwork was inspiring.
However, I gotta go with drafting Kwity Paye at 18.
Yes, absolutely. Even if we got Chase at 6. I think edge is our biggest positional need, but that value is just too much to pass up. Doubt it happens, though.What if waddle is available at 18, I think he drops, he clearly hasn’t recovered from his injury. Doesn’t it take a whole year to recover from a broken ankle? I see waddle dropping big time. If available at 18 , do we take him?
Yessir...I wouldn't be totally against Phillips @ #18 if we really love him or a trade down or if he somehow falls outta the first and trading up...I mean injuries/concussions are a risk...but the talent is there! Even not so injury prone college players are an injury risk..so it's a risk no matter what..even players that stay healthy can bust...so if you're gonna make an educated guess/bet..I say bet on the better/best talent!Crapshoot position. As in edge rusher is a difficult position to project the transition from college to pro. Look at Wake, he even did not get a chance to play at NFL at first.
However i like the couple UM boys and Paye.
Well...Miami's main weakness was run defense so...Kwity Paye isn't an edge rusher, he's a run destroyer. I don't like any of the edge rush talent this year, except for Jaelan who I think is artificially high because of the lack of talent in this cohort. The linebackers are amazing though. Would rather go in that direction if it has to be defense. JOK at #18 would be sick.
I agree that he would be a good pickup for us, but it's gonna depend on what other talent is there at #18.Well...Miami's main weakness was run defense so...
Conclusion: Run destroyer good?
We need to face some facts this year. The salary cap screwed everyone over. It happened to hit at a really bad time for a rebuilding team that is in rebuild mode which hand-cuffed us in FA.
Teams with set rosters are hurt by this the least as they are busy restructuring contracts. We didn't even have enough cap room to sign a player like Juju (20 million).
