I like Ansah the player but just don't see that he fits our defensive system. His size says 4-3 DE to me.
2. Patterson, I love the player and know that he's currently listed as a 2nd round pick but after the Combine I think he goes in the 1st round because someone is going to fall in love with his measurables and speed. He'd be a great fit for the Texans if available but I think it takes alot of luck for Patterson to be on the board at the end of the 2nd round.
3. Jackson, I really like this pick and the round selected. I think Brooks plays RG next year and that Jackson would sit and learn for a year, occasionally getting some playing time, behind W. Smith and that he takes over at LG in 2014.
I feel the same way about Ansah. I don't know if he could stand up full time (might need to drop 5-10 pounds) and I don't really think he fits in at Dend. I like the player though...just don't see him converting well into this defense. Then again, he'd probably do better than Barwin has this year lol...
