great pass rushers or just poor blockers ?



there are lots and lots of de's and olb's going to go in the 1st round this year . maybe 16 of the first 32 players of the board will be de/olb so everyone would think its a great year to draft a pass rusher .

but how good were the guys they played against in college ?

not many o-line prospectsare projected  in the top 20 picks this year which would tell me the o-line draft class is one of the weakest for a good few years . to me most of the top pass rushers in this draft haven't come up against many top quality o-lines in college . so how many will be ready to contribute rushinng the qb from day 1 ?

we have seen guys like alualu, jackson ,mabin the list goes on ,drafted over the last 2 years who were drafted well before the 30th pick and haven't made much of an impression in the nfl so far . we have also seen some top o-line guys drafted in the same years who have come into the nfl and established themselves as top players .

so is it harder to find a top pass rusher in the draft in comparrison to any other position in the nfl ? going by the last few years the answer is yes as we can testify to with our own pass rusher ,gholston (kill me to call him  a pass rusher).

we need to be careful in the draft or we will be facing another pass rushing bust on the team . it would be far safer to draft wr , cb, safety , nt in the 1st than go after a guy who hasn't played against top quality o-lines in college .

history isn't on our side when it comes to drafting pass rushers in the 1st round and i can see that happening again . does anyone expect out defence to be transformed into a sacking machine because of the guy we pick up at 30 . i think that would be highly unlikely . we have as much chance of finding our guy in the later round as we do in the 1st.rex has a knack for spotting talented guys on defence so let him do that and find us 2 good pass rushers in the later rounds rather than risking it all with our 30th pick .
