This pick does not thrill me one bit, seems to be a reach.
Heres the bottom line; the only way to compete in the NFL is to get after the QB (specifically Peyton). I appreciate the committment to it and to continue to do what it takes to put Manning on the ground. Thats the only way we will be able to compete.
I can agree an OLB would be great. I will disagree with you until the cows come home if you said we should have taken a CB. Youth in this spot will not work, case in point KJ.
