That is EXACTLY the right approach with a pick at 30.  Take the high upside athlete at a premium position.  

I trust this front office.   That’s all I got.

We had a disruptive Dr, a top flight CB and two LBs on the board which were better than this guy who had a year to prepare for his pro day and sucked eggs. Reached for this guy, who won't even come close to starting for at least two years...in the first round.

Nah he’ll be starting by the end of the year

Brandon Beane loves spending high picks on high upside, high ceiling, physical specimen players, and then trusting his coaches to turn said players into productive pros.

Time will tell on Rousseau. The fact that Oweh and Tryon were picked in the two picks right afterwords is interesting. It'll be fun to watch all three players' careers and see if the Bills made the right choice.

Beane didn't lie. This pick is about the future more so than the present (though Rousseau will able to contribute this year in the DL rotation).

Oh noes 

I know it doesn't mean anything.  I trust our F.O. I'm just not a big CFB guy so I have to rely on others opinions . Definitely has the upside. Love his versatility.  Can see him moving inside on passing downs

Ill trust beane and mcdermott especially with this but when you watch him he was more effective rushing inside on 3rd downs than he was outside

His COD is abysmal.  I called him Clowney-light for that reason.  He can hold the edge on run downs and for contain on running QBs (Lamar) and rush from the inside on passing downs.  He’s just not a guy you can line up on the edge and expect to get to the QB.  I’d be more excited if he had a quicker first step.  He just seems to lack any real explosiveness which makes me worried about him in the NFL.

At 266, he'll clearly play DE, but what to do at DE now? Hughes is clearly the best DE on the roster and Edge guys often play effectively well into their 30's. Epenesa might turn out OK, but hasn't played well so far. Rousseau could be a project with his limited experience. I very seriously doubt they'll move him inside. Love his ceiling too. He had something like 19.5 TFL and 15.5 sacks in his last full season. That's an insane 35 tackles behind the LOS! He's also played WR and S which tells me he has a good skill set. This also addresses our biggest need. So far, so good.

Honest question to the college gurus, @MAJBobby @NewEra @GunnerBill

 

Do you project either Epenesa or Rousseau to be able to replace Hugh’s at a high level in the next 2-3 years? 
 

We don’t have a huge stable of pass rushers so one of these guys will have to perform at a comparable level or we are in the same spot as we are right now. 

 

Yes. I think Rousseau wins a different way than Jerry but he can give us Jerry like production. The slight concern is that even with Jerry I think we need a bit more pass rush.

Don't you kind of have to swing for the fences with the 30th pick? It's historically littered with awful picks, and then TJ Watt. Definitely not a place where you can just lock in a starter

Hey it's what I see. Not high on this guy.  Oh wait we are supposed to be mindless, that's right. Then yay go team go!

 

Alright that's fair but calling him a bust because you don't like the guy doesn't seem mindless? Just asking.

Brandon Beane just said "it was the pick we wanted and it fell our way".

So, if Beane is to be believed, he's the guy they wanted at EDGE. They sure looked happy in the draft room.

Time will tell, but Beane seems really excited about him.

Oliver needs a one technique.  I hope Rousseau isn’t a 1 year wonder.

 

I hope you weren't expecting a 1T in the 1st Round. There were none remotely worth taking there.
