He might take a little longer to develop, because similar to Anderson he needs to use his hands better. But if he reaches his potential, then he could be a J.J. Watt/Justin Smith-caliber of dominator up front. At pick No. 10, you might be averse to that risk, but at pick No. 30, you should not be..
Please God, NO at 30. I like the guy, but we cannot afford to spend our #30 pick on a 'prospect'. We need a guy who can come in and immediately produce
. This is not the guy. He's older, only been playing football since 09, and it is going to take him at least 2 years to get up to speed, if he can at all. He's big, and athletic, would be a good ST player (field goals) but he is Kroy Biermann II Estonia Boogaloo.
I wouldn't pass him up if he falls late 2nd or 3rd but at #30? NO thanks
BTW here's where he is projected to go :
National Football Post-96th
Mocking the Draft-53rd
Sports Illustrated-outside the top 40
Now, if we absolutely HAVE to pick up a raw DE, Id rather go with Darius Slay. This guy only started one year, but he's from around the way, and played in the most dominant conference in college football. It's considerably easier to look like a giant killer against Fresno State
