Donald would thrive in our one-gap, penetrating front as a DE. He could easily replace Ninja.
I really like Skov, but not for the Texans. The injuries that he and Cushing have sustained have sapped their mobility. They are downhill LB's now that read gaps, flow to the ball, and make plays at the line of scrimmage. We need a guy that can run sideline to sideline and make plays in space. That's why I've been high on Mosley and Smallwood as a fit for the Texans.
yeh ignore the names. fill in the ones you like. It was meant more as an exercise of thought than a literal plan. Its hard for me to wrap my head around players and where they fit until I know who the coach is going to be and what system we are going to be running.
Admittedly I am way behind this year on my (wanna be) scouting. And of all years to be behind on the draft I had to pick the one where we get (most likely) the top pick.. I have a lot of catching up to do.
