    Yawn...


    Ruining a good thread with your old trash. You have to be a special type of weirdo to follow me around and bring this to every discussion I’m in.

    Your not seeing what I’m seeing then. First of all Phillips is gone in the top 20. Rousseau looks like a David Irving clone. Can rush from the outside can rush from the inside. Great movement forget the combine numbers he can move and impact the game much like Irving did. Hopefully his head is on better and we can get a steal if he even makes it to 44. I could see a team in the late first taking him because he has so much value as a pass rusher. Also holds up very well against the run.

    I'm with you on all of that but his speed is all straightline which is why i'm asking about him as a 3 tech.

    But heck maybe he can pull it off on the edge.

    Projecting this guy is tough.

    If he can get to the QB then it really doesn't matter where he lines up or how agile he is. Just sack the QB.

    He is a guy that is overly nit picked here. He isnt an every down RDE, but he is a guy that can be rushed from alot of different gaps on the DL. Interior is going to be where he makes him money with Dallas if we draft him. Could also be Lawrence's long term replacement at LDE. I think his ceiling is Calais Campbell, and he could be that disruptive. IMO if he is there at 44, he is a no brainer. He is also a good player to target in a move up

    Just look at your thread title? A DAVID IRVING STARTER KIT? LOL

    Why would anyone want another David Irving? Do you realize how ridiculous you sound?

    Every time you attack me with name calling I am going to point out all the dumb things you have said.

    Try backing up your own opinions with legitimate, intelligent reasoning and I wont point out the flaws in them. Following you around is the absolute last thing I would ever do. It just so happens that you say so many laughably wrong comments you get kicked called for them.

    Other than being raw, his biggest weakness is lack of bend. Depending on what he weighs in 2 years, he could either be an every down LDE or 3T. It be kind of a waste though, you want to move him around

    I don't think so Catch. That kid is much more talented, off the edge, then is Irving.

    He doesnt really have an aresnal right now as a pass rusher. Adding those moves to his game can change alot of thing. People dont like him because he is raw, but he was incredibly productive without those moves. Fans like high floor, low ceiling guys too much

    So true.

    I'd give this more likes if I could.

    That's a big statement.

    If he is anything close to Irving then you take him and don't look back if he's available at 44 and should realistically go in round 1 if he is close to David Irving.

    My biggest concern with Rousseau is, like others who sat out, 2021 could be a real adjustment year. More than most rookies. But its not like no one has ever missed a season before. And Im not drafting a guy just for 2021

    15.5 sacks and 19.5 TFL's in 2019 with no real pass rushing moves.

    Yeah, but he accidentally lucked into those sacks so they don’t really count.

    He beat college OT's, which only matters for certain prospects and not others

    Rousseau is on my list of guys I would target in a trade down in the first. Or a trade up in the 2nd. If he is there at 44 Im sprinting to the podium. Media guys are on crack if they think he is falling deep into the 2nd

    I see him either speed past the T or OL miss their assignments more often than him beating the OL with pass rush moves. That's the reason I am reluctant picking him in the 1st.

    I could see him falling because teams just won't know where to put him.

    If he can't get the edge as a DE then you have to then hope he can get to the QB as a 3 tech and I don't see a 6'7 270 lb defensive tackle being on the field unless it's 3rd down and hes got his ear pinned back,

    I think enough teams kick DE's inside to rush that he will hold onto value despite not having a clear cut postion at this point. Long term I think he is somewhere between 285 and 295 pounds
