I understand the correlation and the need for DE. But at #7, there isn't really a DE you would want that early. A quality DB and QB will be there at #7. I do like Clayborn from Iowa and Heyward from Ohio St.
I'm not talking about a DE. I'm talking about an OLB which is the position mainly responsible for bringing pressure on the QB.
I agree #7 outside of maybe Quinn there isn't anyone worth it, that's why I very much hope we trade down and look at guys like Aldon Smith, Ryan Kerrigan, Von Miller or Justin Houston.
It gives us another second round pick which allows us to address CB AND QB.
Hit on easily our 3 biggest needs with good value at each pick.
