I agree. Although, I wouldn't be mad as he truly is the type of pass rushing specialist we need. At #7, I see Peterson, Dareus, Gabbert, Amukamara, Quinn, Newton or trade back.
More and more, I like the idea of trading back if those first four are already gone. Can land a 3-4 WILL or a 3-4 DE in the middle to twenties of the round while picking up and extra second or third rounder. I really like this 3-4 DE class. However, there has been points made of Sopoaga's increase in performance this year at DE.
I don't know about Quinn at #7 when Ayers, Von Miller AND Kerrigan all have traits we need for our pass rusher except the other three can be had later.
Is there THAT much of a difference between Quinn and the other validating his Top 10 status?
