Rang saying the strength of this draft is pass rushers. Good timing. Also very strong at WR. More good timing!
If Nick McDonald plays well as the season progresses, I could see a high end G/T in one, too. Wouldn't blow my mind. Could win a job at either right side spot and eventually be Joe Thomas' replacement.
I want big pass rusher in Lawrence Taylor mould and he must be great in stopping the rushing game as we aren't good enough.
Some of the top rushers come undersized...weight-wise. But, there's a bunch in there. WRs kinda hard to project...some light it up one week and are flat next week. Still think Gurley's the best player minus some poor man's blues. Twenty bucks was a big deal my college years; 3K almost like a million. Can't blame him if he has hungry...only human nature. Gotta support mama is getting old, though.
1. Hau'oli Kikaha, Washington
A fast-riser up draft boards, people need to know how to pronounce his name if they don't already (ha-OH-lee key-KAH-hah). The 6-foot-3, 245-pound outside linebacker leads the country in sacks (15.5) and tackles for loss (21.5) and has captured nearly every school record when it comes to rushing the passer. He's quick off the edge but is also plenty instinctive when it comes to finding his way to the quarterback while fighting off defenders with quality hand placement. In short, nobody has been better rushing the passer this season than Kikaha, and the numbers back that up.
So why isn't Kikaha getting any 1st Round love, let alone Top 10 - based on his serious numbers... especially because 6'3", 245 is decent size at OLB? 15.5 sacks & 21.5 tfl sound legit.... so where's the catch???
Still don't understand why Kikaha and Arkansas DE Trey Flowers are 3rd round prospects, not higher.... I'll steal them both!!!
My draft Board:
#12 DT Shelton/ WR Cooper
#19 WR DGB/ TE Williams
2nd Williams/ OLB Kikaha
3rd Kikaha/ DE T.Flowers
I'm convinced these are Pro-Bowlers or *plus* starters in the NFL.
