2019 NFL Draft - Interior Defensive Line

do you think Ed Oliver could be a great Base End

I don't, personally. I think he loses most of his leverage at his size against those long tackles and his speed is mitigated against tackles who tend to be a little faster and light on their feet than interior blockers.

thinking the Raiders go Williams from Bama or Oliver... wonder if Maurice Hurst has trade value around the league

Is Raekwon Davis more of  3-4 DE, or will teams consider him at 4-3 DT?

He's going back to Bama.  Was really quiet in the National Title game, so probably smart of him...

Why trade Hurst?  Keep all of them and have a great 3 man rotation.

I guess I'm one of the few that thinks he would be better off getting acclimated to the NFL game. I just think its more negatives than positives for him coming back,

Raekwon Davis will be a very good 3-4 end.

No. I don’t see a scenario where a coach would want to put him out there. Hes got one spot to play and he COULD be one of the best ever if he lives up to his potential. We’ll see.

No threat of anyone taking his job next season.

This draft at DL appears to be much stronger than next year.

He has a chance to further distance himself from his off-field issues. (He's got some stuff/rough around the edges)

Not surprising. Five-star mega-recruits who stay close to home at a college that coddles them have problems unless their character is exceptional. Very similar to the Leonard Fournette situation from what it sounds like.  I had an NFL guy warn me during the draft process that Leonard Fournette was a problem at LSU and that it was hushed. Not sure if Oliver is at that level but he fits the mold I described above. The NFL is going to be an adjustment for him. Not many mega-recruits go to a college like Houston where the big fish HS mentality essentially gets extended.

Any of you guys seen much of Renell Wren? Guy looks explosive as hell, excited to see what he does at the SB.

Like him a lot, AZ State sticks him right over the center the majority of the time and he's so disruptive there.

If he falls past #10, I'll be screaming for the Browns to trade up and go grab him.

DE: Ogbah/FA

DT: Ogunjobi

DT: Oliver

DE: Myles Garrett
