You NEED a guy with pass-rush ability and you're not getting that from any of the top 3-4 DE prospects this year aside from Richardson.
If you're going to draft a guy to develop to stop the run and play the 5 technique, you might as well wait until the 4th round and take Steinkuhler, he has a good motor, can stop the run, can't rush the passer either but he won't cost you a 1st round for a developmental prospect.
Cowboy switches back and forth from a 5 technique to a 3. It's devastating. It's elite.
Ngata can play 0, 3, and 5.
JJ Watt plays a 3 and 5, but usually the 3. But his 3 tech is absurdly good, especially considering that he is a converted tight end
