    These two look like the exact same player, same size, from the same system with very similar college stats. What's the infatuation with him?

    I'd have no problem with adding another Acho to the team in the 4th round.

    So you are against adding another player that is just like our best OLB? Ok.

    Yeah, Acho and Shaunessey who'll see action as SOLB.

    I'm cooling a bit on Okafor right now. OK with him though, just not a big need for what we have in place already.

    Kind of like Jesse Williams and Jordan Poyer or Philip Thomas at this time.

    Possibly David Queesenberry who's been discussed here all pre draft period.

    Do you play for the Suns? It seems as though you don't understand strong side vs weak side.

    Exactly. Too many needs and too much talent at those positions of need on he board to re-draft the same guy we drafted a couple years ago.

    It seems apparent that well be using a zone blocking scheme, no more perfect fit for that than Schwenke. While BA said honey badger will be a FS, he also hinted at him being on the field as a FA only in certain situations, which leads me to believe we still need a tradition FS. My vote would be P Thomas or B Rambo

    Jessie Williams is attractive as well considering our lackluster performance against the run last year. If we can platoon him with Big Dan we can ensure that we always have a fresh NT on the field, that would do wonders

    Did you watch the draft?


    - did you see what the 49ers did? An already STACKED team full of pass rushers added 2 more pass rushers....


    Thats how you win in this league.



    So yes, go get Okafor

    VERY different situation, with Tank they're lookin to replace an aging Justin smith. Also "pass rusher" is not a position. Acho and Okefor are very close to the same age and play the same style at the same position

    I would compare Okafor more closely to Brian Orakpo than Sam Acho but I see what your saying. We need good pass rushers and Okafor is an upgrade over acho.

    Are you Rod Graves? Because it's seems that you don't understand player movement, depth, or BPA especially with a 4th round pick.

    I don't think they are as similar as you say. Okafor is definately a better pass rusher than Acho is/was. I'd love to have him but don't see him as a fit in our defense to be honest. He's more of a 4-3 end to me. I'd still take him as pass rusher for now, and let him bulk up a bit to take over for Dockett in a few years.

    As a fan I have guys I hope the team selects, but I'm smart enough to realize that I'm dumb when it comes to know how the Cards board is stacked. I do have a LOT of confidence in the BASK empire.
