It appears its gonna be between these two for our 9th pick imo.

My only concern is if we take Kuechly, where is our pass rush gonna come from in this draft?

Im pretty sure its a lock we take a CB in the second (Hosley).

I dont see any good pass rushers available past the first round.

Im more leaning to Coples because I feel he can be a beast of a DE and provide a solid pass rush pared with Johnson.

I think DL is the most likely 1st round pick, despite the talk about the Panthers loving Kuechly.

HAHA! Were not taking Hosely in the 2nd. If you think we are you sure are going to be disappointed. Kid is a twig who is only 5'11 or maybe shorter. Just another nickelback. Nice try though.

Doesn't matter who you've got at DE, if you can't get pressure from the DTs your pass rush will fail.

He is a twig. Knocking him for being 5'11 is ridiculous though. You should know better.

Rivera likes to get pass rush from his linebackers. Just because Kuechly wasn't asked to rush in college doesn't mean he's incapable. He definitely has the speed and athleticism to take on the challenge.

Having the #9 pick in this year's draft sucks. Let's pray we can trade down.

Who would want to move to this spot though?

#9 AggieLean.

Coples. Rivera has spoken of the need for a better pass rush; I think it's a lock unless he's off the board.

I don't think the draft comes down to your opinion, in my opinion.

This must be thread 897 where everyone says who they want to draft, again all over and over again

I see no way we are drafting a DT with the 9th with this years group. There is no Suh,

We will get more immediate value and contributions from an elite DE or LB. Not to mention we need to let our young DT's develop.

btw Coples can play DT on passing downs

Based on what? You have a hotline to Rivera and Hurney?

And I thought I'd have to wait forever to hear what Dash Global thinks...
