We should’ve taken DK

 

Its almost like you shouldn't make sweeping declarations about people's careers based on their first 6 games in the league. Wild stuff.

I said it on draft night and still say it.... Ed Oliver dropping to #9 shows sometimes NFL personnel people are stupid. 

 

No problem at all with Arizona taking Murray at #1 - if you think a guy can be your franchise QB you pick him - but Bosa and Oliver were the best two players in the class and there was a gap to the third best. Everyone from the Jets on got it wrong in my opinion. The Lions took a ***** Tight End. I mean seriously. You can't fix stupid.

He was already called a bust on here by some.

He's figuring it out now.  I wouldn't be surprised if he gets to 10 sacks this season.  OMG how awesome would that be?

Production is a poor way to measure the play of DTs, but the anticipation for Oliver to become an immediate star left room for disappointment. Truth is, rookies at this position do not typically light up the box score in their first eight professional games. Here are some notable NFL star defensive tackles and their production across their first eight games in the league: 

  • Aaron Donald: 20 tackles, one sack
  • Fletcher Cox: 16 tackles, one sack
  • Geno Atkins: Five tackles, 1/2 sack
  • Gerald McCoy 14 tackles, zero sacks

 

Ed Oliver 28 tackles, 5 sacks, 2 PDef ,  1 FF (12 game totals)

 

 

did you just compare the stats of 4 players in 8 games with one players stats in 12 games?

I wanted to suck bad enough last year for either Bosa or Oliver and I still can't believe we got Oliver at 9. I really thought we wouldn't have a chance in hell

I disagree. The Jaguars nailed their pick with Josh Allen. That kid is a beast.

So Josh Allen has been a good pick. For sure. But over their careers I am convinced they will still wish they had taken Oliver.

Yeah but if you factor in their first 12, he's been better than the above.

Now that very well could happen. I absolutely loved the Oliver pick right from the start. My brother and I lost our ***** when he fell to us. I'm still shocked honestly.

The only thing that worried me about Oliver was his short arms. His power, burst, gap control, awareness and speed are all elite.

Interior pass rushers who can also play the run are much harder to come by than an edge guy IMO. Can always bring edge pressure with a blitz, up the middle from a DT position - yup, I will take it all day long

I’m more worried about flat earthers than I am about Oliver.

You don’t have to worry about them, just herd them over the edge... tell them there’s a Dunkin’ Donuts over that way....
