    Other than offensive tackle and wide receiver, I think there's an outside chance that the Cards also consider K'Lavon Chaisson as well as Kinlaw at #8. Edge rusher is one of the high value assets that Keim has professed to value in putting together a roster.

    Keim had to know an OT was going to be available. I don’t think we are going OT. I don’t think that necessarily says we are taking Lamb.

    I was just about to post on this. Every draft has one guy which for whatever reason is not included in the top ten. I mean the guy has no hate, is considered great, but is left out and that guy seems to be K'Lavon Chaisson. He has the length and speed to be a QB's nightmare and still weighs around 250. Chase Young is a stud and might turn out better than the Bosas but that does not mean Chaisson is not worth a top ten selection. He's that hindsight guy which people go, we could have selected him

    Chaisson might be the biggest sleeper in this draft. I’ll probably get slammed for this but I wouldn’t be upset if he were our pick. They being said, they definitely could trade down a bit to get him....maybe.

    I would not mind him either one bit and I still want Lamical Perine as a running back selection late draft... he's my diamond in the rough lol

    Chaisson has all pro traits but he has been often injured and his production was far from being great

    I label them based on where there fans live, not the mostly empty stadium in which they play.

    His production was elite once he recovered from injuries last year. He was the best player on LSU’s defense.

    The injuries you’ve mentioned plagued him throughout his career. He missed 2018 completely. He’s got the raw potential but needs lots of work on technique. If they trade down he’s a possibility but he’d be a reach at 8.

    Injuries are priced in to the value.

    So is position.

    OLB/Edge is massively important.

    Working on technique seems like something Chandler could help with. By all reports Chaisson is an extremely hard worker and learner.

    I watched the SECCG video and Thomas blocked him into the ground a few times. Thomas also got beat for a few pressures, beat off the edge to allow run contain, and gave up a strip-sack (bear strip-sack).

    I thought I read that Chaisson has TRex arms which hurts his draft status.

    Chaisson acquitted himself well. Watch the whole video. He stacks three or four pressures, gets a (near?) strip-sack, and contains edge on run really well on a few outside runs.

    The commenters specifically mention how valuable he would be for a team looking to slow down San Francisco’s outside run game.

    If he's there, that's my pick. You can always find servicable MLBs and Safeties. Finding elite pass rushers is as hard as finding elite QBs, and this one is good against the run.

    Maybe second best behind Derek Stingley Jr
