Not sure how I feel about 3 of our first 4 picks on defense.

ESPEICALLY a 1st rounder on another OLB.

I hear ya - but I'll say this. Murphy isn't just an OLB, he can play end too ala Bryant. Not your typical 290+ pounder granted, but I just think his versatility is something Horton could use scheme-wise. Skov can play any LB spot, so really between the two of em, you cover a lot of ground.

Also, the point was made of how much better the front seven pressures when Groves is in the mix, allowing for a better rotation. I like his game but not his reliability this season

I'm one that agrees with the thought of never having enough pass rushers, but our OLB and DL are the heart of the team and probably also have the best depth.

A 1st rounder is just too rich for my blood in that area.

It would be one thing if we were talking about Clowney, but we aren't.

NO to a top heavy defensive draft.
