  1. I'm pretty sure I remember us being the final 2 with Miami. Man him & Babin off he edge in 2010 would've been awesome, especially with how good Jason Jones was his first 3 years.
  2. Well they filled in some major holes so it'll be interesting how they approach the draft. I think at this point the heavy favorite would have to be interior DL. I think we're in a good spot to go BPA but Robinson really puts an emphasis on need in the 1st Rd. Edge is probably still an option as Wake was a short term investment. You think they look at center or that's overkill for the IOL? I was a little surprised they didn't entertain Matt Paradis considering his price tag. I wonder if maybe they love Bradbury?
  3. https://www.profootballfocus.com/news/pro-age-not-an-issue-for-cameron-wake-as-he-enters-free-agency This is a great write up on him. PFF isn't the end all be all but they do a good job evaluating the front 7. 54 pressures in 284 rushes is just insane. I do think they should watch his snaps though, whether that's Finch getting snaps or maybe finding a big edge in the draft that can kick inside on 3rd down, like the Allen kid from BC.
  4. Edge rushers for some reason are able to maintain close to their level of play well into their 30's. Look at Julius Peppers, dude retired at 39 & was still a very good player. Granted he's a freak of nature but look at Dwight Freeney & James Harrison, they were still very productive rushing the QB in their late 30's. I still wouldve preferred Justin Houston because of the 7 year age difference but maybe he priced himself out. BtW Wake is also a great run player. Trust me, the fans are going to see how great this guy is.
  5. Well I've always felt that older vets have a huge upside for a year or two. I think age is overrated. Don't get me wrong, Id obviously prefer 27 to 37, but IMO you look to the draft more for your long term investments & FA to plug holes or a big ROI for a year or two. In this case though I don't think some here realize just how great of a player Wake is. He is absolutely dominant when healthy & finished last season unblockable. And has been for a decade. He's also a pro's pro. He takes his trade seriously, he's in great shape, studies film, eats well. I admit 37 is awfully old but even if we get just 1 more prime Wake year it's worth it. Did you see the deals the Smith's got? They're not even in Wake's stratosphere. This also allows the team another year or two to see what they have in Finch and/or take advantage of an incredible edge class. The Packers are obviously out of drafting an edge & they looked like a no doubter for one in the 1st. If a stud drops to 19 we can still go that route now.
  6. For some reason I remember us being the last team & losing out to Miami. Maybe I'm wrong. But man how dominant would he be in Schwartz's scheme?
  7. I dont think the board realizes how dominant a player Wake is. He's also great against the run. He probably can't play as many snaps as he used to but he's a pro bowl level player when healthy.
  8. He actually had the best pass rating against the 2'd half of the year, it was like 32. He was a huge reason the D improved so much last year. While the LBers & other guys deservedly for credit, Butler was totally overlooked.
  9. I don't get how so many are dying for Z'Darius Smith & are upset with this. Wake is an absolute monster & didn't slow down a bit last year. This is a great signing.
  10. If we did this Huston would be screaming from the hilltops of Robinson's brilliance....
  11. I'm happy we didn't sign Smith. I understand why some were so high on him but he just has all the makings of a guy who gets overpaid a ton because he's a half decent pass rusher. I can name a billion of these guys. This is also the first year he's done anything. Houston, when healthy, is so much better. Not even a comp.
  12. Tillery has been overlooked a bit because of all these freak combines but he had a damn good combine himself. He was very impressive in all the drills. It seems like we really like Christian Wilkins but I actually think Tillery is a better fit. He's a great pass rusher & he has tremendous length, something's that's really missing on our DL. He's the prototype 5 tech, 6-6 305, very long arms, great hand usage. I also feel like I'm not giving Wilkins enough credit. He was absolutely dominant last year & came in 10-12 lbs heavier then I thought. Hes really twitched up for a 315 pounder. Theres just so many great prospects in this draft.

    Byard & Weddle def have a bromance going. We also can't forget that this was the first good year Vaccaro has had since his rookie year, when he looked like he was going to be a star. He's had a lot of injuries.

    The best teams almost always have a good mix of players. You obviously want plenty of youth, but fans tend to undervalue vets that have played in plenty of big games & have been through all kinds of situations. Weddle is a leader & winner, and most importantly still a very good player. He'd be a huge upgrade at safety.
  15. I agree. We already have good players there, especially with how Pruitt & Firkser came on. Plus we have needs at edge, DL, IOLand WR. Major positions. I mean, what's the value of a big time edge? Flowers is going to get $17 mil. If we hit on one in the 1st Rd we have one for 20% of that.
