Not bad brother!

I’m still not sure if we should part ways with Harrison…

As the current roster meets the new DC. … attitude and motivation level can change imho

Im all for this, Except i dont think A rookie isnt coming in and taking Kennards spot.

Right Jennings is one of my favorite players for this system. He has size, speed and can rush the passer, but what makes him a good fit is his coverage abilities.

I like Epenesa but number three is too rich for him.

That’s true, but I think he fits, what were looking for. More then D Brown, Okduh and guys that are there. And he won’t last till 10. Hockenson wasn’t worth 8th pic, but that was there guy and they took him.

I think he’s a terrific prospect. As I’ve said a number of times he reminds me of Cam Jordan. Great hands, thick lower half to anchor with, better athlete than given credit for. He’s going to be a very, very good pro defensive end IMO.

For you its Jennings, me K’Lavon Chaisson. Same position, different strengths, similar size 6’3" 260 or 6’4" 250, think Jennings is stronger, Chaisson faster with more bend. Both would be awesome blitzers, I’ll have to see Jennings coverage ability, but Chaisson is good. Don’t think either will make it to the 3rd, why a trade down with miami would be perfect. Chaisson/Jennings, Wilson (OL) and Adebo (CB) in the second. I’d go after Jordan Howard in FA rather than draft, but Dobbins or Swift would be great also.

Appreciate the thoughtfulness of this.

But Epenesa at 3 would be absolutely brutal draft value, even if he turns out to be good.

No more brutal then Hock at 8. And draft value lols.

I like it. I also agree that Epenesa is too high at 3, though I do like the player. That’s a really simple fix. We just trade down with a QB needy team, and get him several picks later

This is what draft value means to me.

I want this guy, but I’d have to take him higher than everybody else would.

I have an opportunity to trade down a few slots, still get this guy, and now have another high pick with which I can get another player who can help my team.

Millen, Mayhew and now Quinn have not been good at this concept over the years. I understand the idea of not dicking around and potentially missing your guy. But when you’re drafting guys like Teez Tabor and Jahlani Tavai in the 2nd round, you’re doing it wrong.

Yeah I get u and your not really wrong , a trade with Miami would be perfect, get extra pic and your guy.
