Hey , guys, i think Rolando Maclain it is a great guess for our pick this year, but, im starting to dislike this kids footage.
I just saw this video, and although he is strong and tackles on his feet, he does look slow, and get seriously distracted with some blocks, forgets the ball. He does have some good reading skills, but, i think he is no MACHINE, and maybe not BAP at 10. It doesnt feel completely right.
Regarding our last year 1 pick. Its true we had serious need at OT, thats why we had hired tra thomas. And had need at WR, where we hired tory Holt.
So I post this crazy thought….
He have recently hired Kampman … sooo, we are surely getting new DE this year for Kampman to develop. Just like Tory Holt did, and Tra did.
What do you think? Could this be Gene's strategy. Guessing which are our possibilities for BAP, and which guys we are fond of, and then hiring great old "teachers". Or is it just that we are taking care of the need in FA, just in case BAP doesnt cover our needs?
I think it is kinda weird last year we covered our needs in the draft, and had a couple of veterans waiting on the kids.
I wouldnt be surprised if we pick in late rounds a couple of sleeper DE's, avoiding bust risk at this urgent need position. Or taking a Calculated risk with machine Derrick Morgan?
