Great news!  Would it be out of the question to keep six CBs: Haden, Pierre, Layne, Sutton, Shakur Brown, Tre Norwood?

So I see it like we got some good value guys early, a couple reaches in the middle, a steal in the 6th, fun punter in the 7th, and a crew of good UDFAs. Not a bad haul. I think it’s going to be another good one.

Reading the tea leaves I’m making up in my mind: they like Layne and Pierre on the outside with Sutton on the inside in sub, but want to throw darts at the board with UDFA/signings in hope of striking gold. 

I would be sending a WYD? text to Casey Heyward, but still some good FA’s to be had at CB.

I thought Sutton was given the outside CB position.

In this case I am assuming that Sutton starts outside in 2 CB sets and slides inside in nickel/Dime. 

I think theres a lot of mixtures they can do currently, but coverage wise, no one else projects inside on the roster other than Sutton.

Is Loudermilk going to be a NT?  

At 6'6 I assume he'd be too tall and at 274 too light.

He is a 2-gap player with zero explosiveness.  They want Aaron Smith when they do not play that defense anymore

What do you mean by 2-gap player?

For a 1 gap player your are looking for explosiveness to hit that gap and disrupt/penetrate. For a 2 gap player you are looking at long arms to hold off the oline and strong-as-a-ox not to get moved.  Loudermilk is the later.  But at 6'6 he is a 5 tech which means he is Aaron Smith type of player.
