    In my ideal world, Wilber and Crawford will replace Spencer and Hatcher respectively. Then we should use our first rounder next season on a franchise 3-tech.

    Wilber - Crawford - Draft pick/Ratliff - Ware.

    Wilber went to Wake Forest.

    Any thoughts on who that 3-tech would be? I admit I haven't really looked at next year's prospects. Hard to know at this point who will be first round worthy (with a few exceptions).

    Wilber is on the weakside. If someone replaces Spencer is it will be Crawford.

    Wilber has been playing both spots.

    There are some good options next draft. Jerrel Jernigan, Louis Nix, Will Sutton, etc. I'm also holding out hope that Henry Melton somehow hits free agency.

    Yes but he was a "finesse player" at Purdue. :lmao2:

    This is a stunning and pleasant surprise. I was nearly certain that Wilber would be misplaced here.

    Not sure where you saw that but Crawford has been the SDE.
    Wilber is listed behind Ware on the WDE and that's where his work is coming.

    Broaddus writes below:

    "Wilber has received plenty of good work and mainly it has come against Smith who might be a quiet personality off the field but there have been sometimes where he has jumped on Wilber so quickly that he spends the whole play trying to fighting off the block as the ball goes past him or Orton completes the pass."

    I'll believe it when I see it. I think her can play the run but I do not see how he can be considered a quality pass rusher at this point. I'm encouraged, though.

    Hate to say this but Spencer is peaking and into his prime while Ware has peaked and on other side of his prime.

    I hope JJ gets a good deal on Spencer because watching last year make you realize he was the best DL player we had all year.

    Something to be said for guys who work hard. If he has the quickness and the will to learn there is no reason why he can't be a decent edge rusher. Pulling for the guy 100%

    Yeah, I mixed him up with Spencer but the fact remains he was labeled a finesse player. An odd fit for a 3-4. And not much of a pass rusher either.

    As would I. I think Crawford will be a better 5 than 3 but we'll see. I do think he can play either.

    It's a great debate. Usually I lean one way or the other when a player can play two positions but with Crawford I just don't know where he fits best. I think he could do either.

    I think he may end up a 1 as a starter.
