    Raekwon and Jerome had higher PFF grades with lots of reps as sample size..
    Film backs that up..he was ranked 69th..

    He’s young I’ll give him that but no way over Minkah or any other first rounder in that range..

    Edmunds had significantly better production than either McMillan or Baker this year. He had lot more tackles than either of them, way more PDs, more ints, more forced fumbles, more TFL, more QB hits.

    PFF grades not withstanding, it was a very impressive season for the 20 yr old rookie.

    Well all I say about this is that Edmunds is the guy I wanted in the 1st, but I don't think anyone saw Minkah dropping to us. I would still have preferred Edmunds but I'm fine with Fitzpatrick.

    He’s young, we disagree on him as a player, I watched every one of his reps and I’m confident in my statement, I don’t think he will live up to top 15 draft status, and I think we all will be happy we didn’t go there with the 13 th pick, you do and I’m cool with that..

    I think you are not taking into account all of the variables. He was a 20 year old rookie starting at middle linebacker in a defense which requires a lot from and puts a lot of pressure on the Mike. Offenses were targeting him all season and he got progressively better as the season went along. That tells you he is learning and once he has the mental aspect down and experience under his belt he will be great.

    I was not mad at the Minkah pick I like Minkah, but I would have also been very happy if we had picked Edmunds or Derwin James instead.

    I took in all the variables..just didn’t want to wait for him to develop instincts..

    It’s ok we disagree, I do the work you do the work we have different opinions.

    He’s another in a long line of NON difference making 1st round draft picks.


    Dude doesn’t have ball skills...
