I see where both Philly and JT are coming from, but I probably side more with JT.... Our Dline was pretty crappy from the get go, our LB core was solid before injuries and both are returning. I would bank on at least one of them to return and play well. I'm sure Kuelechy is a damn fine player, but we have positions that don't have returning pro bowlers (granted from injury). These positions are simply void of game changing talent and we have a chance to hit that at DE with Coples. If Coples is gone, I'm not so sure any CB, other than Claiborne (who will be gone) warrants the 9th pick, and the same goes for DT. In that situation, if we got Kuelechy, I guess that would be okay? But you would in essence be telling Thomas Davis to piss off....
If we were to pick LBer I would choose Ingram... Rivera likes to use his LBers for blitzing and this guy is fast, he is agile, he can tackle, and he get get after the passer. You could possibly even put him down on the line sometimes. He is so versatile and you can do so many things with him. I would say Ingram or Coples with nine, and I don't see how neither of them would be there. Luke Kulechy is simply a tackling machine, but picking a tackling machine so high doesn't seem worth it. Someone who can get after the passer and do a variety of things seems worth the pick. Ingram or Coples yeaaa
