That's such good news and I'm really glad to hear this! This means there is a zero % chance we reach on a guy strictly because of need. DE, in my mind, was the biggest priority of the offseason and they got it filled. I agree with you though, if there's an elite talent at DE that is there I think we could still take him. But this alleviates us having to worry on reaching for a guy like Michael Johnson at 15 (maybe).
While some may not like our moves thus far, I'm thrilled with our offseason up to this point.
