Some very good pass rushers in this draft

I've slept on this thought, and I'm now completely on board with Jones if the two DT's are off the board, and we can move one of our other high dollar LB in Beason or Anderson. He's the best play maker on the defensive side of the ball in this draft class, and that is something we desperately need....

Completely agree.

I thought about this for a couple weeks now but thought that it was a crazy idea at first. But since seeing that Beason hasn't been the same and Kuechly looked great in the middle, taking Jarvis Jones isn't a crazy idea anymore. Anderson is productive but he's not great and I can't see TD being here for another year or two.

I like the idea of taking Jarvis Jones. He could be like Von Miller or Kiwanuka for us. I'd hate to see Anderson go since he has grown into a solid player for us. Beason has to stay because he is an impact player when 100% healthy. But, would Beason play WLB or SLB?

Jarvis Jones also would help our scheme versatility. We can easily switch in and out of a 4-3 or 3-4. He is a legitimate pass rushing threat as a 3-4 OLB.

the only way i would like the Jones pick was if we switched to a 3-4 or he was getting switched to a full time DE.

I can really see Jones as an 43 OLB and not just a 34.

I cant see Jones as a DE. Hes only 6'3" and 240lbs, way too small for a DE.

Jones has been compared to Miller. A lot of scouts believe he can be a 43 olb. A team like the Colts may take him as an OLB bc Freeney will probably let go at then end of the season and Mathis is the other OLB. Cleveland is a 43 team that may also be in the mix for Jones and take him as a 43 OLB.

Anderson has grown but hes an average lb. He cant drop back in coverage or rush the passer. Beason can probably be move to either olb spot or if we can find someone to take him off our hands, that would save us a lot of cap to work a DT or CB in FA also.
