Pick is in, #4 Clelin Ferrell DE Clemson

Recommended Posts

This is Kolton Miller de ja vu. Ferrell was never gonna be that good his rookie year. I was expecting maybe 4 sacks this year (hopefully picks it up a bit). Ferrell will look solid next year and this fanbase is just in a endless loop of mistakes and never learn. He’s a rookie. Going from dreadful to good from rookie to sophomore year is completely common at every position.

everyone wants instant gratification, its 5 games in and hes already getting called out. Let the kid develop. You would think they would learn from last years 1st rounder, who everyone on here thought was a bum.

That’s the problem, this forum, not just Raider fans, are wayyyy too quick to form opinions. Both good and bad.

Yes and you don’t “swing for the fences” for a superstar just because you have a Top 5 Pick. Burns/Allen are a misfit in a 4-3 and terrible run defenders. You can argue we should of taken White, that’s the only guy even worth an argument. But he’s also been trash this year. 

Ferrell was always going to be a 7 sack a year, elite run defender, Brandon Graham for comparison (always in PFFs Top 50) type of player. Were you expecting a Mack/Von? No. 

We will get our premiere pass rusher this draft probably and that guy and Ferrell will be a dominant duo. We always needed two EDGE’s. And you only need one pass rushing stud.

Should have taken Allen. Still early to call Ferrell a bust, but he does not look like an edge rusher, certainly not one where he was drafted.

Post draft they were clear they liked Ferrel for his ability to move along the line. Why are people acting like he's suppose to be a pure edge rusher?

dang this gets old.lol first off for the record ive never been down on miller,  it was obvious the injury affected him. the guy I wanted hasn't panned out and has made me reevaluate my position on drafting samoans / pacific islanders (vita vea) lmao!  I liked the Ferrell pick given that bosa was off the board, and WE HAD 0 TRADE DOWN OFFERS HELLO?  at least give the guy a second season before declaring bust status for cryin out loud,lol. ya never know, we might have our pass rushing stud already on the team (mad maxx) by next year we could be seeing 6 to 8 out of Ferrell and 10+ outta Crosby. that wont match miller and chubb but both were taken top 10 sooo…...hell, if Ferrell got 2 in this next game everyone hating would be loving.lol  none of us had high expectations for our overall sack totals this year, we just wanted improvement, its only slight , but we have improved, and we`re still 9 games from the finish line. Don't get me wrong, I want improvement from Ferrell …...but I don't expect that to happen overnight.

I know his isn't a Crosby thread but since he was mentioned..... I can't imagine what he's going to be like with an extra 20+ lbs of muscle/bulk on his frame in a year or two.

Sweat has been worse than Ferrell.

Sweat also went late first and not #4.  Different expectation and Sweat still has a higher ceiling.

Sweat was projected way higher than Ferrell before condition though.
