Jeremiah Attaochu-SR-OLB-Georgia Tech

This guy is has been getting a lot of talk and Greg Cosell says he is a superior prospect to Auburn's Dee Ford ...He has a motor and long arms, with a great get-off quickness! OLB isn't our weakness, but you can never have enough pass rushers.

I just want to see what everyone thinks about him and if he is around with our 2nd pick in the second rd would you grab him??

I'd take him with our first 2nd. Even trade up a bit if needed. One of my favorite players.
As a GaTech Alumnus, please god yes.

Additonally, he is a good player. The ACC, overall, is pretty subpar.
I don't see OLB as a need this year after spending a 3rd pick on Lemonier ...Plus(Mel N todd) said this dude is still a raw prospect that he hasn't been playing football that long ...

Mel and Todd are the most worthless draft analysts out there. Mel is actually a complete moron

Lol ok I'm not sayin they're the end all be all of draft guys just saying what they said about him... My main point is IMO spending a high pick in a OLB is unnecessary after picking Lemonier this past year. ..we need WR N CB help more. ...
few mocks back Walter had us drafting J Attachou(by the way his name sounds like Pokemon character) in case of the legal troubles laying await for Aldon Smith. JA already played in a 34 so he's adapt to the position.

No I agree that WR and CB are top priorities, but if we grab CB and WR with our first two picks why not move up in 2nd for this guy?

But again OLB aint a need at all we already have Smith , Brooks ,Skuta , Moody(also a ILB I think) N Lemonier ... I could see us taken someone 5-7 rounds but 2nd round would be a waste IMO ...I hope with how deep this class is at CB N WR we come away with 2 WRs N 2 CBs ....
If he's still sitting there at the bottom of the 2nd by all means, but I'd hate to burn draft capital moving up for a luxury pick.
This guy has met with most teams already. He's quietly a hot commodity. IMO, he's an easy transition to 3-4 OLB in the NFL, which is probably his natural fit. He's intriguing though because he had success at OLB and DE. He fits almost any defensive scheme. He'll go earlier than most people project him.

Nothing wrong with competition for Skuta, Moody and Lemonier that's how you get the best out of your players! But I agree its not a huge need, if he is there at the end of rd 2 and we already grabbed a CB and WR (plus both those positions are deep in the draft) why not?

Baalke always has a head-scratcher moment, maybe its a pass rusher in rd 2.
JA will be long gone by our second round pick. Simply too good. Could sneak in the back end of the first round. Would not be surprised.
