I Know You Want a DT But...

This guy is a play maker. A beast in a weak draft. Carolina switches to a 3-4 next year, they will need this guy. Its quite possible to trade down, pick this guy up and still snag a decent DT or even aquire one in free agency or trade, which would probably be better, no learning curve.

no no no no no no no no no no

Now I am a little biased being a University of Arizona alum, but I DO NOT want this guy on the Panthers. He's a thug, as simple as that, if you think what Suh is doing right now is bad, wait until you see this guy in the NFL, he'll be worse. Yes he's a great player, but he costs his team in so many ways it's just not worth it, he led the nation in personal fouls in both his first two years in college.

I thought drafting Jimmy was bad, I grew up a die hard Michigan fan, but if we draft this thug, it will be even worse in my opinion. Thankfully we'll have a top 5-7 pick at the worst, and this guy will probably be slotted somewhere in the 10-15 range, so it shouldn't be a problem.

No way. He didn't even play this week b/c his team suspended him (probably for his last college game). The guy is bad news. Bad attitude, penalties, etc. Buyer beware!

u seen our defense? Carolina needs a thug. They need someone to smack the other team in the mouth.

have you seen his non-highlight videos?

Yes, his highlights make him look like the next Ray Lewis, and he very well could be based on his talent alone. But I've never seen a bigger thug in the college game in my life.

For the past few years the only reason I've been afraid of playing ASU is because I was 100% honestly scared that he was going to take out our QB with a late cheap shot. This dude racks up 15 yard penalties like you wouldn't imagine, and they're not ones that he just went a little too far after the whistle, but head butting players well after the play is over and trying to hurt players in dirty ways.

He has the talent to be a 10x all-pro and future HOF member, but he'll be out of the league in 5 years or less because nobody will be willing to deal with his bullshit.

sorry, I dont want nice guys on defense, I want mean, angry, high motor players. So the guy gets carried away, I dont think it something that cant be fixed, and for the talent he has, it would be a waste to not try. Jon Beason can get this guy in control.

So it would be a waste to not draft a guy in the top 10-15 that is such a loose cannon, that he refused to come off the field when his coach ordered him off after picking up a personal foul??

dude, hes in college, hes young, people do mature. The guys going to be an elite player in the NFL.

He has the tools to be as good as he wants to be but his head isn't on right. He is a loose cannon. He's always been one and he likely always will be. He also tried to end Matt Barkley's career in HS when they were both committed to USC. That's not a just playing hard move, that's an I don't give a poo about the consequences move....
