I know this is going to sound crazy but what if we land a high high pick. I mean a top 5 pick and when our clock starts ticking, a kid named Jarvis Jones from UGA is still on the board. Would anyone be opposed to taking this kid? He would be BPA. Jones is the best rusher in this draft imo. I know many will be quick to say why the fu(k would we take another lb, but hes a different lb. He's a Von Miller type of lb. This kid is the closest thing to Von Miller who can still be play in a 43 D, even though he's a 34 in the next level. Im just saying this bc Anderson is average, TD is closer to being a liability, and we've seen Beason recently. Jones is absolutely an upgrade over these three guys.

And I can already see Jones being an absolute monster every Sunday rushing the QB. Georgia has produced some great talents of rushers in the recent years: Geno Atkins and Houston.

Just something to talk about. JARVIS JONES! It's really not crazy.

I like him too but he's not close to as good as Mingo. But yeah I agree Mingo is best fit for the 3-4. I wish Jadevon Clowney was gonna be in this draft and we finished 1-15 lol

There is always next year to pick up Clowney

Yes Montgomery has the size and weight to be a 43 but hes clearly isnt built like one physically. And he should hope that a 34 team picks him and not a 43. He need to be used like an Aldon Smith.

he is built like a 4-3 end. 6'4 260+ is plenty of size for a 4-3 DE.

And I agreed with that. I'm not talking weight and height here. Go look at Montgomery physically. He's built like a rushing OLB. I'm not saying he won't be able to play in a 43 but if I was him, I'd wish a 34 team pick me and uses me like Aldon Smith.

he looks like a DE just athletic as all get out. Osi and Babin are slender 4-3 DEs as well.

I could actually see Jones falling. Supreme talent, but his ideal fit is a 3-4 team due to his size and pass rushing ability and there may not be any drafting in the top 6-7 picks. Best fits would seem to be IND or NYJ, although he could be used like Von Miller is in Denver....

Yes thats exactly what I think. If Indy or NYJ lands a top 5, no way will Jones fall out the top 5. A lot of teams that may end up drafting high runs a 43 and will look for other positions to fill (i.e. QB, DE, DT). I would not be surprise to see Jones still on the board after the first 5 picks have gone by. Jones imo is the best pass rusher in next year draft who already have 5.5 sacks this year and 13.5 a season ago. Hes almost the same size and weight as Miller. A lot of scouts seemed to also think that Jones can be a Von Miller type OLB in a 43 and I wouldnt doubt it. Even though we have a log jam at the lb position, Jones bring a different kind of skill sets to the position and his ability to rush will make up for our lack of rushing to the qb.
