On top of the fact that he has the size that give you the flexibility to slide him inside in particular defensive sets.

Now I'm not saying he's the best player in the draft or anything, but if he ends up going in the bottom of the first, it will be because of his consistent productivity in the SEC as well as his flexibility and strength.  It certainly won't be because of any sort of flashy athleticism.

  His days on the edge of any DEF are probably over. He bulked up after the season(300+) knowing he couldn’t survive at DE in a 4-3. He is probably best suited as a 5-tech in a 3-4.

I could see him playing DE in a 3-4. But the reality of the modern NFL is that 3-4 DEs are playing as a three tech the vast majority of the time because regardless of 4-3 vs. 3-4, nickel is the de facto base defense in today's NFL.

What I’m saying is he hasn’t done much of either. So it’s tough to judge his play at 4-3 DE compared to any technique that involves moving inside. Which at 300+, is happening. And he knows it. 
 

  Nickel doesn’t change your DL. Its either 3 or 4 man. It either O/1 and 3/5 tech.

It's a concern that is compounded for me when that guy plays in the same unit as a dominant player projected as a top 10 pick. Is he just a lunch pail try hard guy who is maximizing the opportunity to shine with his teammate drawing all the attention from the opponents?

Daeshon Hall scenario right there in a nutshell.  Hall put up decent stats with Miles Garrett on the opposite side drawing all the attention at Texas A&M.  We moved up in the 3rd round to get him.  Come to find out he was a 'try hard' guy that benefited from a stud playing the opposite end and couldn't make a name for himself here.

I don't even think he qualified as a try hard guy. He was a naturally gifted guy with the measurables to still put up decent numbers despite loafing when he had an elite dominant player opposite him drawing all the attention.

Delpit's stock seems to be in near free fall. He went into this season with many projecting him as a top 10 pick. He's heading into the draft hoping to be a 2nd rounder.

Benefit of having Brady is his inside knowledge of LSU players, both offense and defense.  Rhule has mentioned several times of his preference for directly knowing players.  Wouldn’t be surprised if Rhule would take or stay away from Delpit based substantially on Brady’s recommendation.

Yeah, between them they should definitely have really good knowledge of SEC and Big 12 prospects, as well as Clemson.

It was proven long, long ago (in the 1960's) when you play the best of college players against an NFL team, the college players LOSE.

If Rhule and Brady have plans to implace the Carolina roster with LSU and Baylor/Temple players and win in the NFL?

Good fuggin' luck, my friend.
