Just a heads up to somebody with no idea.... they announced him as a LB, he’s not playing DE in base oppo Daniels. His traits are big physical edge, he didn’t play in the right position at Michigan. He had dropped to mid 20s in most recent boards/drafts. Its on Pettine now.

Gary is 280 lbs = not a LB

Huge upside, huge bust risk.  

Well, I didn't throw up in my mouth, but it felt like someone kicked me in the groin.

RAS scores at DE, DL and LB are eerily similar to Ed Oliver.  We got an amazing athlete.  Now the coaches have to get it out of him.

Thinking Gil Brandt said it best about this pick, "Good luck, Green Bay".

I would be Okay if he remained at DE but he was announced as a LB. Moving positions as a project player is not what you want at 12.

Our two current starting OLBs are 265 (Preston Smith) and 272 (Za'Darius Smith).  No reason to think Gary can't cut 10ish pounds.

Per usual, lots of overreactions here. Kid is a potential elite talent. It's up to Pettine to get it out of him. That's a risk I'm willing to take all damn day.

When Peppers was with the Packers, he was listed as an LB wasn't he?   Peppers was even heavier.

If Julius peppers can play LB so can he. Also he ran 4.58, he can play EDGE.

Here's that Gil Brandt quote someone referenced. 

I have no horse in the race, I just wanted to see exactly what he said after it was mentioned.

They have him listed as a LB on the Packers website. He was announced as a LB in the draft when they picked him too.

Some would call that classic underachiever

Man, anybody saying Gary can't play EDGE should watch him play.  I just watched some and it does not look physically possible for someone that big to move that quickly.  He has that ability.

He checks all the boxes for me.

Under 22.
Premium position.
Two first names.

This is a very good start to talking myself into this pick.

Except he's not. Dude ate up blocks so Winovich and Bush could thrive. They owe their NFL check to that man. As was mentioned, he was the guy other teams schemed against and double/triple teamed.

lol that's totally false tbh. Not everything is projected on paper. He may not have had the numbers but Michigan doesn't become an elite defense without him. You saw what happened to them once he got hurt/wasn't himself. They folded.
