    Would You Draft Roquan Smith at #5

    Would you draft LB Roquan Smith at 5.

    Like his speed against the run and in coverage. Best LB in the draft. Thoughts

    I wouldn't mind him as our first round pick, but I think we could move back a few spots to do so...

    No, because I prefer him as an outside linebacker in a four-man front, where he will have more space to work with. I don't like him that much as an inside linebacker, having to take on blockers in the trenches.

    I watched him against Oklahoma in the Rose Bowl and his performance was underwhelming. He is not a thumper against the run and, in coverage, he only has 3 pass breakups and no interceptions in his college career.

    I agree. I know this would be a good impact pick worth the value. We have been without a good coverage LB for a good couple of years.

    Forget the smoke and mirrors and watch him in the running game taking on blockers, trying to shed blocks and tackle. I think he would look better as a weakside linebacker like Lavonte David. Also, Roquan Smith has shown very little in terms of coverage skills, which will hurt his value.

    You're right , he gets swallowed up in the run game.

    He reminds me of Ian Gold......... which would confirm your point .. weak side guy in a 4-3

    Who would you say is the best coverage LB in the draft?

    Among the top linebackers, I think it's Leighton Vander Esch. It's a risky evaluation because he's a 1-year wonder, but he looks fast dropping into coverage and had 4 pass breakups and 3 interceptions in 2017. If you want someone more under the radar, I'd say Darius Leonard from South Carolina State. He has 2 interceptions in each of his final 3 seasons (6 total), plus 7 pass breakups.
