Just some food for thought and a little something outside of the Free Agency Talk....I just wanted to point out what I thought were some similarities.

Just looking at it on the surface, I feel like we are looking at the 2011 draft.

2011:
A phenom at QB is available. Cam Newton. He enters the draft with numerous questions surrounding his maturity, ability to play in the NFL and overall off the field behavior.

There is a DT that is thought to be a safe pick and real playmaker. He is 6'3 319 and ran a 4.93 in the 40. (Marcel Dareus)

There are a couple edge rushers that have real potential. One rusher is 6'3 and only 246lbs. He is truly dynamic. (Von Miller)

Also some other rushers that are thought of highly. (JJ Watt, Aldon Smith, Robert Quinn, Ryan Kerrigan, DaQuan Bowers, Justin Houston)

A couple of WRs that are highly thought of:
AJ Green
Julio Jones


2015
A phenom QB with some off the field issues, maturity questions and overall off the field questions (Jameis Winston)

Two WRs that are very highly thought of: Amari Cooper and Kevin White

A Defensive Lineman thought to be the best player in the draft and a safe pick. 6'3 305lbs (Leonard Williams)

An productive edge rusher that weighs 6'3 246 lbs. Truly dynamic. (Vic Beasley)

Some edge rushers that are thought of highly (Bud Dupree, Dante Fowler, Shane Ray, Randy Gregory, Owamagbe, Odighizuwa, Eli Harold, Nate Orchard)


If you look at how the 2011 draft played out.
1. Cam Newton
2. Von Miller
3. Marcel Dareus
4. AJ Green

Will it turn out the be similar? Will we chose the dynamic rusher over the "safe, productive Lineman"

Honestly, I'm all aboard the Vic Beasley train at this point.

Yeah, I'm good with Beasley.

Honestly the only reasonable picks that would disappoint me would be Mariota or Gregory.

If we add a good NT and some more Def players i want mariota. I just feel both the top Qbs are gonna be in the top half of the LG for their Career. We cant miss out on either one.

So who is the more important player, Von Miller or Marcell Dareus.

Von Miller is the bigger star, but Dareus is REALLY good. Both are All-Pros. I know people will want to talk about the players around Dareus, but Miller has had Dumervil and Ware throughout his career.
