I think we should grab Dion Jordan with our first pick. I know, I know we already have Hali and Houston, but this kid is an absolute freak and will be a star from day one... he is that rare player that can be considered as a "defensive weapon" he is such a freak im sure we could find somewhere to line him up from anywhere to inside linebacker to nickelback (joking kinda) Dorsey said he believes in taking the "BPA" so take it in Jordan. I think Jordan could be the missing piece to making this defensive elite and badass and nasty. The dude is 6'7'' and ran a 4.53 40 I mean c'mon. He is very raw as a pass rusher and needs some coaching up but the pieces are there for him to be Aldon Smith 2.0, plus he is already much better in coverage than Aldon Smith is. He really has no weaknesses in his game, and he is extremely fluid and people have said he has been able to man up with wideouts before, he can lay the wood too, and he seems to be just all over the field in run support. The worst part of his game right now is his pass rushing which he probably has the most upside by far in this draft class. Oh, and plus I would also like a good #2 Corner in free agency. And a solid DE to replace Dorsey and upgrading Kendrick Lewis would be nice too we can do this all in free agency though. We could grab... DRC, Randy Starks, and William Moore now that would be a scary defense. Just line Dion Jordan up at ILB or wherever and just let him roam. Too bad we probably wouldn't have the cap money...? Or would we? BTW, watch this short highlight video -- he's all over the place!
Do you guys know if we are running 1-gap 3-4 or 2-gap 3-4? I'm honestly tired of this soft ass 2-gapping crap that Romeo brought in its made our D hella soft. I think a ton of our players would benefit from an attacking style of the 3-4, especially Dontari Poe and Jerrell Powe. We need to figure out how to make this defense MEAN and NASTY like the 49ers, Seahawks, Ravens, Texans etc. And whats the common theme amongst them? They are all 1-gappers. I think this D has a lot of potential but I believe their skill sets aren't being used correctly. Just an opinion.
Would you rather stick with the soft ass 2 gap 3-4 or move to a more aggressive 1 gap 3-4 defensive scheme?
