How many Blue Chip Defenders

DonnieD89 : 3/15/2019 1:20 pm
do you thinks are in this draft? There are a lot of good athletes out there on D.
At least 3 in Quinnen W., J.Allen and Nick Bosa.

Maybe more with Dev White, Rashan Gary, Montez, Greedy, Clemson's big 3 DL...

A guy I have watched recently that stands out to me is the Edge guy from Florida Jachai Polite, he looks special.
Q. Williams, Bosa, Josh Allen

Guys that are likely blue chip :

Montez Sweat, Devin White (but not a big time pass rusher so that drops value a bit)

Guys that have blue-chip talent but not the production to match:

Gary, Oliver
Greedy may also be on the blue -chip list

But some questions about attitude there.

Polite apparently had a horrible combine both in the testing and the interviews.

I read Polite is likely to drop from the first given how bad his combine was.

The good news is, with likely Murray going to Zona, we should get a shot at one of Q. Williams, Bosa, Allen, Sweat or White at #6. that should be very satisfying.
Did Sweat do enough to be considered

a blue chip talent? I havenít watched too much of him but while has all the traits you could hope for, it doesnít seem he had much production. This is an actual question, I am not trying to make any point. I read a couple of articles on him where this was heavily mentioned. However anything you read can be suspect. Running a really fast 40 doesnít necessariy mean anything if he didnít do a lot.

Not sure where this narrative of lack of production comes up. Does anyone double check the stats before saying this?

Dude had like 23 something sacks in his last 2 years. That is very good production to excellent. Not out of this world production that your rarely see with a top 5 pick. Take a look at Gary...now THAT is lack of production relative to the combine numbers.

For comparison look at how many the other guys had. Allen had the sick production of 17.5 sacks (but numbers like that are extremely rare).
I think Ed Oliver is going to be defensive ROY. He has the intensity,

strength and quickness. He's been playing out of position at the nose. I'd love to see him as a 3-4 de.
