    LOL, you're reaching. I think he's a solid prospect, but under no means do I feel he's a can't miss propect that we have to give up other top-tier prospect at actual positions of need for.

    LOL, I just want the draft over with at this point.

    And yes, he is certainly not can't miss however I do think the ceiling is very high with him and that the risks have been overstated.

    If we go dl in round 1, dude has to be on Casey's level. We have way to many holes to pick a player for either line in the first 2 rounds.

    So if you think his ceiling is not high, why are we giving up #18 to pick him over positional needs with arguably better prospects at that?

    Outside of OL, QB, and RB, I'd argue DE is our strongest position. Reddick, Howard, Foster, Hooker, Adams, Lattimore, Conley, and depending who you ask an assortment of receivers are all better prospects at bigger positions of need, and there is probably a longer list at that. Even Charlton and Allen are better at DEs.

    There not going to all be available, but one of them has to be. Unless we plan on trading down and McDowell slips, it makes zero sense to draft him unless we think he's a can't miss prospect which is doubtful.

    by "high ceiling" I mean he has the potential to be outstanding
