Yeah, it was a totally wasted pick at #7 two years ago! Shoulda picked JJ What instead, an moved him to OLB!
Really, have to use the #7 pick on a player with outstanding athletic ability who can start in the NF of L, not on a guy like Aldon who . . .
sus, did you see the GB game, where Aldon chased Rogers out of the pocket on what seemed like every play? Pretty steady pressure there.
Last night he played a complete game. Pressured when called upon to do so (and TWO sacks per Mindy Bach in her post game interview with Aldon), plus he played the run very well and did well in zone coverage when called on to do so.
All that, and its only his second actual start at OLB. He's only gonna get better and better.
He keeps it up and we're all gonna have lots of reasons to party.
