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.

Inconsistent. He's a feast or famine type player which scares me away from him. Is it because he takes plays off, etc? Does he not have a motor? Watt is renowned for his insane high motor, non-stop movememnt, and just pure drive and will. He was a walk-on at Wisconsin and had to progressively work his way up the ranks, transition his body, and put on the weight. That guy is unique.

Not every DL is going to match Watt in that category, it doesn't mean they don't have a motor at all.  I've never watched a DL that didn't at least take some plays off, even Watt does.

 

I don't see this being an issue with Williams. Clowney's motor was much worse especially in his last year in college, and he went #1 overall to a team that already had Watt.

Williams is not worth the 3rd overall pick. USC hasn't produced very good DE's over the last few years.

Wisconsin wasn't producing great DEs in the few years before Watt was drafted, LSU hasn't had very good WRs come out in the past decade but had 2 very good rookies last year. The past, is just that, the past.

 

What don't you like about his game?

What am I missing?

Prescription glasses maybe?

in 2012, the Redskins moved from 6 to 2 and gave up the following.......

 

2012 1st round

2012 2nd round

2013 1st round

2014 1st round

 

Even though they gave up way too much to move up 4 spots, this is the minimum of what I'd want to move down to 20.
