    Would have been nice if we could have got the same player 2 years ago instead of Knowshow in Brian Orakpo, but hopefully he becomes a sack monster, we havent had a feared pass rush game in forever even with Doom.

      Feels right. I think he fits. He's going to become one of the "heart and soul" leaders of the new improved defense. He's kind of like the Tim Tebow of linebackers.

        Maybe we've finally found a replacement for Al Wilson, eh?

          I think I have to see how tomorrow plays out, but if we get some DLine I will make do since he could be extremely dangerous and getting pressure on the QB is needed. I hoped for Fairley so we could get disruptive force from our front 4, but with this creative D we might be running he is athletic and will help us.

              Yep, or a successor. No replacing Al, but his impact could set an example.

                I like it. He was the player I wanted most.....I would have been happy with any of the "big three" (miller, dareus, peterson), but he was my #1.

                I think we can get a good DT in round #2.....

                  I like the pick with as many holes as our d has you dont pass on a guy like that. Everybody thinks he wont be used properly in a 4-3 but come on do you really think Fox Elway Xanders and Allen wont adjust the scheme to fit him.

                    I like it, as long as we take a DT in the 2nd round, i'm ok with it.

                      Miller is a talent but he was not the biggest need for this team, i hope he succeeds but i want to get a good DT now and maybe get Mebane from the Seahawks .

                        No, as the MLB, Al ran the defense. I don't know if Von will be able to do that, but I think he's an upgrade over what we had on the strong side. So, Miller on SLB, DJ on WLB and Haggan or Mays at MLB?

                        Not as good as the LB corps we had during the glory years, but better than we've had in the last five years.

                        We still need to upgrade our DT. And that's assuming that Ayers can handle duties at Strongside DE. Doom will be ok at the weakside. We can likely fill in one of the DT spots with Vickerson, but we still need depth so we can keep them fresh, so at least two more Defensive linemen, a safety, a running back

                          He will be tremendous and now we go get a D tackle with our second pick, another lineman or safety with our second 2 and a TE with our 3rd.

                            Von Miller WILL be good in coverage and against the run!

                            Some of you need to actually watch his gametape before you judge him.

                            He drops back into coverage a good 20% of the time and does just fine at moving through traffic to wrap up runners.

                            We have a new stud on our team, try to enjoy it.
