That's my point though. I don't think you should take a DE that high inless he's just racked up countless sacks throughout his career. And he's NOT that guy. If he was Julius Peppers or Mario Williams size wise, athletic wise, and statisically coming out of college, then sure. Take the kid. But he's not. He's more of a 3 - 4 inside type of guy or a LE that is more productive against the Run Vs. Pass. Taking a guy like that at No. 3 is foolish. I think if this team really wants a pass rusher you can get one later on in RD2 or RD3 that will be just as productive off the edge. Either that kid from Washington or Orhard out of Utah. Those guys were nightmares this past season off the edge.
Again, this team struggled on offense last year, not defense.
We struggled on both sides of the ball, and offense will likely be a focus in free agency.
Watt is a 3-4 inside guy too, and didn't have many sacks in college, about the same as Williams. Not sure if Williams is quite as athletic, but they seem pretty close to the same type of prospect.
