Just not sure we can expect a lot off the bat but we sure could use someone who can get consistent pressure as a backup. Can't expect much from TJE and Dobbs and Dial is probably more of a run stopper. Would be nice to have someone to substitute in for McDonald and Justin and get consistent pressure and not just hold their own.
I hope he turns out to be worth the wait. Not to mention we only get three years of his services, assuming he does not get hurt again. I am tired of drafting hurt players and them not playing the whole first year(Tank, Dial, lattimore). I hate being negative, but damn, we need more production from a almost first round pick. I haven't heard anything on him ready to play yet either. We really need him.
He will be a bonus if he is really good, and a huge bonus if he is great. When they take these guys there is a pattern...take them and keep them hidden on the injury list until needed. That gives the team another good player on the roster who can be activated as the season goes on and the injuries begin to pile up. It would have been nice to have had him last year when Justin was hurting. In the mean time they can keep a couple of other guys as back ups. They drafted an injured RB--they are stocked at RB; they drafted an injured DL--they are stocked at DL.
If you have a lot of draft picks and a great roster...you have to be creative!
