He really wasn't on my radar but this makes total sense to me now.

What is the premium position in the NFL outside of QB? Pass rusher.

We are all arguing about OT, WR, or maybe DT but the answer seems to be OLB.

Chaisson didn't have the production you would expect from a top 10 pick but lets look at it in a different way...

Freshman - Played in all 12 games/started 3. Got 2 sacks and 27 tackles.
Sophomore - 5 tackles, 1 sack, and 1 TFL but tore ACL in first game (4th Qtr)

How long does it take to recover from an ACL?

Junior - Let's focus on the last 4 (and biggest) games of the season (more healthy?)
20 pressures - 5 sacks - 4 hits - 11 hurries - 4.5 tackles for loss - 18 tackles

That is huge.

Dude has a motor, sets the edge vs run, and can rush the passer. He needs to learn more pass rush moves but who better to tutor him than Chandler Jones.

I think this kid could have Simmons type impact on our defense.

I really like Chaisson. LSU always has one kid who is an athletic freak and Chaisson is the latest in a long line. I watch a bunch of SEC games and he definitely stands out. The really exciting part of his game is the ability to both rush and drop into coverage. Chaisson has that unique ability to shorten the curve to the QB. That being said, I would be totally shocked if he is picked that high. Maybe in a trade down, but not at #8.

Not gambling on him. I'd be pissed. As I said in the thread about Chase Young, we just gave Devon Kennard a decently sized contract.

It's basically a 1 year contract. Smokescreen?

I watched few highlights of young and he destroyed some under matched colleges. Then I watched on YouTube everyone oh his snaps vs Clemson. He was pretty much shut down by both clemsons tackles.

Not saying I wouldnt love to have young on our team, he had great production overall. But he doesnt have chiasson motor, leadership, ability to drop in coverage or athleticism.
I think young will be a 43 de while chiasson will be a 34 olb. As I said in the other thread. I dont think any player will have a bigger year 1 impact on our team than chaisson.

I would urge people at this time of the year to stop overthinking things.

Well, I'm not stumping for Young either. I don't think we can go get him. Too much to give up.

As far as Chaisson goes, with your last comment, I'd rather have someone who is going to help us long term. We're not in win now mode - that'll be next year or even the year after that.

Miami decides to take Simmons or whoever at 5 and then wants to trade up to 8 for Herbert? Sure.

If we trade down it's Kinlaw, Chaisson, or one of the OTs if they are still on the board.

I'm fine with a trade down

If they trade back some and take KC, I'll be cool w/ it. I forgot about that weird contract for Kennard. Just don't leave Brown on the board!
