Outperformed what I anticipated from him, but he certainly didn't look like a 10 sack guy throughout the season
I dont think you watched many games if you say he didnt look like a 10 sack guy.He still has some learning to do on misdirection plays and staying home but still did a very good job.

His numbers are misleading, he would take plays and games off. Many have said this.

You are out of your mind if you think MJ took games off. And I have never heard anybody say that until you just did.

His numbers are not misleading. He played more snaps than anybody on our D line and busted his tail combating what was most often the other teams best blocker. He is asked to rush the passer and he is also a phenomenal run defender.

There is a reason LTs get paid more than any other offensive linemen.

No matter what you guys think or unreasonably expect this is still the NFL and lining up and beating the man across from you 100% of the time doesn't happen.

This. He would go stretches of 2-3 games without making impacts.

Also you can never have to many DE.
We MUST take a top safety in the draft. I like iloka and liked the pick but he didnt get much playing time for a reason. When we actually have to take nate clements from his position of CB to safety with taylor mays not living up to his job instead of putting in iloka then something is up.

One of our picks in RD.2 should be Phillip Thomas from Fresno State.

I agree the guy is an absolute beast. He will move up to early second with a great combine.

I'd take LB in the first. But if the guy we want is not there then I can see a DE taken.

Ill watch some youtube videos on him, i dont know much about him. I do like elam and vaccaro though. And if the draft happens to fall badly safety wise for us then i wouldnt mind rambo if the coaches think his head is in the right place. T

I can buy the BPA in theory, but I can't watch our team be undone by the same holes year after year. If we don't figure out LB/Safety, all the pass rush in the world won't matter.

If you can pickup a solid starter at FS and LB in free agency, then you can have the luxury of BPA. I'm not holding my breath on that.
