Not bad at all. McLaurin, Gibson, Curl etc weren't sexy draft day picks, but the front office showed once again that they know more than any of us

Except that guy is in Atlanta now.  We've got guys with failed resumes making the decisions now.

I love the pick! I agree about JOK & I wanted Darrisaw but I really like Jamin Davis too. He’s definitely a day one starter, probably at WLB but could be MLB. It will interesting to see how our LB corps shakes out & our safeties.

I think Its going to be Collins - Davis - Holcomb. Davis is a tackle machine. Probably our next London Fletcher.

I think I showed a graph earlier today that the guy in Atlanta didn't really do anything for us either lol

And none of those guys were top 20 picks. Also, the front office that picked McLaurin is gone.

But can he cover, or is he going to get beat worse than Bostic?

I know some won’t like it, but I’m a fan. I would have taken him over any LB not named Parsons. 

There isn’t a lot that I’ll blindly defer to this FO on, but Rivera and Hurney have earned the benefit of the doubt with their track record in identifying top LBs.

I love this pick!!!!! Now go to 31 and get Mond and get the QB for the future on both sides of the ball

Oh man! If they get Mond you’re going to have to change your underoos bro! Haha 😂 

I’m happy! I certainly wanted at LB outside of Fields most in this draft in round 1 for us. I definitely trust your evaluation, I like what I’ve read and seen of him too and I certainly trust Rivera & DelRio to evaluate, draft and develop good LBs and turn them into great players.

He could be our Shaq Thompson!

This guy had no DL at Kentucky. He had to work through the scrap to get places. That speed behind our DL with his feel for the game and we have something special. I promise this guy is a special player

It's funny. Every year we're all reminded that we don't know jack sh&t about the draft. And then the talent evaluators bust too. 

That's why you need those bullets in the chamber. To hit a few... and miss a few.
