Darius Butler on his best bet for DPOY

Depends on the supporting cast. He generated so many pressures last year but we couldn't cover and the rest of the DL wasn't always doing their part. If our secondary improves(on paper it should) and our front seven improves(on paper it should), then he should finally start finishing these sacks.

Still have no clue why the Raiders drafted Ferrell over him, I remember I mocked Burns to the Raiders at #4.

I do. Coming out of college, Ferrell looked like a prototypical 4-3 DE prospect who could rush the passer, stop the run, and hold the edge. Clemson's history of disappointing edge prospects is impressive. It's beginning to rival the USC WR streak or the Big 10 RB streak. We fell victim to both of those with Colbert and Biakabutuka.

Timmy B was an injury bust more than production.  When he played the kid could play.  His knees just couldn’t take it. (Sad face/pets rookie card)

Burns' size was a legit concern. Dude is LEAN as all hell for a DE. Has the length and the strength but there were concerns that he wouldn't be able to put on weight/keep it up in the NFL.

I'm glad LV passed on him bet they would take him now.. Everyone was mad we won games at the end of the year and said we would miss out on a great DE like Sweat. Just goes to show win all the games you can and let the draft take care of itself later..
