Because I believe the front office is smarter than that. I don't have any idea what the FO is thinking but I GUARANTEE they're not thinking about spending the 1st two rounds on two prospects that can't make it to the passer. If they can't make it to the passer they're not playing the nickle. That means they're playing 30% of the densive snaps. I mean they can go to FA and draft a vet that could START playing 30% of the d snals on day one because neither ot these guys would.
You claim that Brandon Williams cannot get to the passer. (see highlighted section of your post.)
Brandon Williams made his college career living in the opponents backfield.
If there is any defensive lineman, tackle or end, in this draft that has proven he can get sacks, it is Brandon Williams.
In 42 games, he had 27 sacks, 18 quarterback hurries, and 50.5 TFL.
Compare his disruptive function with some of the other defensive linemen in this draft class.
Kwann Short 50 games 18.5 sacks, 0 quarterback hurries, 50 TFL.
Datone Jones 51 games 12.5 sacks, 3 quarterback hurries, 36.5 TFL,
Sylvester Williams 25 games 8.5 sacks, 11 quarterback hurries, 20.5 TFL.
You might want to reconsider that guarantee you are offering. ...
Here are a few more:
Alex Okafor 52 games 23 sacks, 29 quarterback hurries, 34 TFL
Damontre Moore 38 games 26.5 sacks, 13 quarterback hurries, 45 TFL
Jarvis Jones 26 games 28 sacks, 10 quarterback hurries, 44 TFL
Technically Jones is an OLB, but he might play DE in the NFL
Brandon Williams is among the best in this draft class at getting sacks.
