I do not think I can recall a single draft with this much edge rush potential...but I also see a great deal of bust potential.
Just two years ago:

Von Miller
Aldon Smith
JJ Watt
Robert Quinn
Ryan Kerrigan
Cam Jordan

And the best of the bunch had a degenerative knee condition which scared teams away, just like what will probably happen to Javis Jones- Da'Quan Bowers.

That bunch destroys this weak class.


JJ Watt was always my favorite of the group. Von proved me wrong though, that he can handle the 4-3 and is basically just as good.

Von was always my favorite, followed by Watt. Not many here liked either.

I didn't, for our D at least. Aldon really proved me wrong, as did Kerrigan.

My rankings (out of that group) would have been Smith, Miller, Quinn, Kerrigan, Watt, Jordan. Not too bad, but was off on Watt. Quinn hasn't lived up to what I thought he could be (yet), and Kerrigan is a little dissapointing (even though he shouldn't be in a 3-4), but the rest was fairly accurate. I slightly undersold Miller and Smith, but not many people thought they'd be this great. Jordan is exactly what I thought he was.

I remember liking Smith and Quinn a lot... Watt I knew would be great in a 3-4. I never said much about Von because I didn't think we had a shot at him Laughing

I didn't like Cam Jordan at all.
