    Seriously. I'd take him first but the heads say otherwise. What's up?

    Kerrigan is white and white guys can't rush.... or jump.

    And he didnt break his leg .....


    I'd take Kerrigan over Smith any day.


    Kerrigan was the best player on what wasnt a really good defense , teams schemed to take him out of the game and he still produced. Cant say the same about Smith ....

    I wouldnt have a problem with taking him at 11. And yes he will be a first round pick. I just hope if we dont pick him he goes outside our division. The guy is a playmaker.

    With our luck Kerrigan ends up in Jacksonville. He seems like a good fit there.

    Long arms and he's still getting stronger.

    I agree, I don't understand it. Kerrigan is just bigger, faster, and stronger which better on field production. Unless someone falls to us, I would make Kerrigan the pick.

    I think it all comes down to potential. Some say that Kerrigan makes up for "ordinary physical tools" with hustle, while Smith has alot of untapped potential and upside.

    I am well over the "untapped potential" BS.

    Some think Kerrigan doesn't transition as well to the 3-4 OLB position and is better served on the line.

    I would agree here. I am not that high on a one year wonder. But at the same time I am not that high on Kerrigan to the Texans. I am really hoping that the Texans walk away with either PP or Quinn.

    I am assuming he was being sarcastic.

    I think it is similar to evaluating JJ Watt vs Cam Jordan; both will probably be good players & it just comes down to personal likes and how the individual projects the skills of the player. I'm a fan of Watt but would be ok with Jordan. I prefer Smith (if Texans Doctor says fibula is healed)but Kerrigan would be ok. I think Smith transitions to OLB better & I like his arms.

    If I could get past the tumor, I'd take Robert Quinn if there. There are some pretty good OLBs in second round or later such as Acho, Moch, Mason Foster or Bruce Carter.

    I would be really happy with Kerrigan.
