If this is Crennel's evaluation, then it makes draft decisions pretty straight forward. We draft Clowney.
But... with my mock, I've got Tuitt penciled in at 2-33 to be the talent to keep the OT off of Mercilus.
And we haven't even begun to address the strong side.
You can begin to understand the position that our existing talent doesn't match up well with Crennel's defense and why the draft has to be defense centric.
