    I agree with this. He can be abused by speed rushers, especially in the NFL. But I still think he could be a well above average RT in the NFL. Plus, he's a great ******* run blocker. He just takes his opponent out, much like our current starting tackles do.

    • Carimi being abusable by speed rushers is largely a myth. I wouldn't be comfortable with telling him to protect Brady's blindside against Dwight Freeney because that will never be his strength...but he went up against guys who were supposedly much better athlete than him all week in the Senior Bowl and not once lost a battle because of his feet.

      • I love him. i think DE, OLB and interior offensive line are bigger concerns right now but I would not be pissed if we took him in the first, especially at 28

        • I think he's moved himself out of that area though. Carimi has a chance to go top 20 depending on what teams picking a tackle are looking for. He's probably off our board just because he's not the kind of guy who can get out to the second level on the screen pass. I don't necessarily agree with that logic, but it probably keeps him off our board.

          • I think it's safe to say Kerrigan is a top 15 pick now. He was a beast in pass rush and he looked excellent setting the edge against the rush. I doubt he makes it to our 17. I'm thinking Jordan is unlikely to be there either. Mayock was consistently saying 20-30 on him but that seems highly unlikely to me, given the increase in the number of teams running a 34.

            I still think it's possible we see Jordan at 17 so I'm thinking Jordan / Hankerson as our round 1 picks.

            • Jordan is still in play somehow despite being the best player at the Senior Bowl. Really flew under the radar for a long time and might not be able to make that massive jump up to the Top 10 that some people(including me) were projecting. He's an interesting selection for us really. He's not a classic five technique like Cameron Heyward is. He's more athletic guy who would do REALLY well in a one gap 3-4, but still could be a major factor in our system both as gap to gap player as well as a pass rusher. I'm still not sold on him as the best system fit in the world but he's clearly the most talented athletically out of all of the five technique prospects this year and that certainly counts for something. I would be really excited about that pick assuming we were able to land an OLB. One thing that was sort of lost about Richard Seymour in his prime is how good of a pass rusher he was. 8 sacks a year was expected and a ton of pressures a long the way. Jordan could potentially bring that type of pass rush production to the table for us.

              I do agree about Kerrigan though, we can pretty much kiss him goodbye. It would take him falling at this point to be there at pick #17. Could well happen, but I don't think we can sit there and say it's a slam dunk at this point. I'm completely comfortable taking him to play linebacker at 255 though and that was a nice surprise this week.

              • I think there is a very good possibility we trade up.
                I don't know that we have the roster space for 10+ rookies in camp.
                I could see us trading up with Dallas and handing them our later 2nd.

                • I want to see the combine (the "least important event of the year") before I make any 'final' decisions, because I am seriously curious where some of these 10 yard splits, 20 yard SS, and long jumps will be (all highly indicative of important on field measurables).

                    • We've still got months of this stuff haha. Starting to really be draft season now though.

                      • It's going to be a long couple of months... sooo... discusion

                        Would C.Jordan be a good fit on our base defense?
                        He seems to be the ideal specimen/skill for our sub/nickel package UT ala M.Wright
                        He's a penetrating havoc creating monster... but would he be able to play our 2-gap style in our odd front?
                        I'd like him regardless bc we play so much of our sub-packages that they're pretty much starters anyways.
                        Just wondering if you think if you guys think he can not only play in our odd front but actually earn a starting job.

                        • I don't think he would have ANY problem earning time and starting here. It is an interesting fit though. He's a rare type of player that could realistically project anywhere along a defensive line sans NT. I'm going to have go back and watch some more tape on him..but he has no issue being a gap to gap player despite his athleticism. We play nickel so much and he would probably play DE there too and be good in that role as well.

                            yea, like I said, even if BB didn't like him in our base D... he'd be a monster in our sub packages and we play that half the time anyways so it doesn't really matter.

                            • Still, we should be able to base package more. That's a sign of weakness if anything. For that reason, I'm still debating if Cameron Heyward is a better fit.

                              • Long arms, big hands, strong. Could add to his base.

                                He can play any/either scheme with some coaching.
