Thinks Okudah has to be the pick so we can stick to MPs scheme… Apparently MP said the coverage makes the pass rushers better opposed to pass rushers helping the coverage. I get it, but not really… Works both ways but MP/Patriots like coverage more.
Thats a big issue IMO… Have to cover for a very long time if we don’t get at least 1 very very good/great pass rusher. If we aren’t getting home in 3-4 seconds on average and have to cover 5+ seconds continuously then it opens our DBs up for greater risk of drawing a flag AND our pass rushers will get fatigued twice as fast as the opponents TOP will continue to be more than ours. Not to mention it gives more time to throw the ball which will make a less than average QB look like a HoFer…
There was so much talk by the coaches and FO in how much they valued versatility in player skill AND scheme to be able to get after an offense every way possible. Could be something different each week, we were lead to believe. But that’s far from what we seen in 2019.
I know we had key injuries on the DL but some might not be back, some may retire and others that were hurt may not return to what they were. Too many question marks there to not address it a couple times either big FA pickup or early in the draft.
A lot will ride on what ends up happening with Slay of course.
