He will be a very good player who will hold down his position for 10 years- however it is a position not valued the way it once was. Slater would have helped the OL and you can find great LBs in the 2nd and 3rd- not great OL.

It will be valued when you actually have a good one!

Wouldn't sign past 4 years. The length of you know who's deal.

Either we get a real QB or he's out.

I read ya, Micah. I read ya.
You should know that no player signs a rookie contract past 4 years

I meant valued in the draft. People talk about RB- safety and linebacker are also positions many teams now feel do not warrant first round or top 20 picks. Time will tell but if I ran a team I would not take a LB in the top 10.

Now do you think you will find another Larry Allen? Chin is a decent comparison- he is going to be that hybrid LB, has been dominant and was taken in the 2nd. When you regularly find great LBs in the 2nd that first round pick has to be used accordingly.

I think that's position-specific too though. Like WR franchise tag is 20+, whereas I don't know if any non-edge-rush-specialist LBers are that high. So Devonta at pick 12 may have still been pricier
It’s not position specific
A QB picked at one would get the same as a RB
There is a minimum and maximum salary for each draft slot
Has nothing to do with position
Within those minimum and maximum every player taken with any pick must fit

If you could regularly find great LB in the second then no one would take them in the first
LB is a position you can generally get a starter quality player in the second compared to other positions but no one regularly gets a great LB in the second

They took him at 12. But if they turn out to be great then their worth the position and the contract. This particular pick they took the best rated LB probably in the past few years! We'll see how that turns out but right now on a defense that is complete garbage they needed playmakers. There's just no way to justify Oline at that point considering they had a line full of first rounders and the D has been holding them back for quite some time.

As an aside, does anyone know why his nickname is Sace (pronounced Sah-chee)?

I can't help but wonder if Marinelli would approve.

Where, at guard?

Yea, one thing when Barr, Donald and Shazier go off the board and the bpa is Martin.

We still had the top defensive prospects available who also could challenge the bpa throne.

You don't need round 1 to draft great guards. Left tackles? Sure. But not interior guys.

You might. You can find offensive lineman in later rounds, it is possible. We currently have only two first round lineman in the projected starting line up and our line figures to be one of our strengths (if healthy). We needed to inject talent on the D. Basically every position needed an upgrade.
