    He was going to be a late 2nd early 3rd pick, if he was Emery's guy he had to take him; very Longish type pick, ton of potential ton of upside, and not a ton of college production. 670 guy said he spoke w/4 scouts 2 said he was a 2nd rounder, 2 said late 2nd early 3rd. Basically a late 2nd pick.

    Excited to see what he can do on the field. It's going to be tough to pick who you're going to double team on this DL of ours and a lot of our LB's have pass rush ability, coupled with Tucker not being scared of blitzing the LB's maybe we can get some pass rush going this year.

    I don't dislike the pick, but I would have been more comfortable with Nix. I was not blown away with the Fuller pick either, but I recognize that he very well is one of the top CBs in the draft. My only beef with that was that I did not think we needed a CB that bad. With Ferguson, I'm not sure I'm convinced he is one of the top DT's. I will say that I think he is pretty good and I will say he has a ton of upside. We could end up with two of the best players at their positions, but with Ferguson, I'm just not sure. Actually, not sure with Nix either, but I guess more comfortable. Hopefully, this is a steal pick, but we'll see.

    Ya I really think Tuckers DL isn't so much about getting pressure as it is stuff the run and open up opportunities for LB's and DB's to blitz

    In that case, I don't like his DL.

    This pick makes sense a perfect fit with Ratliff. They wanted a guy who can plug a hole and is very difficult to move. His job will be maintain the middle and allow our edge rushers to do their jobs so sacks will not be his main focus. Stopping the run up the proverbial gut looks to be his forte, hope he fits the bill.

    Which I think plays to Fuller's strengths as well, I bet he'll be a force out there blitzing from the nickel position. The guy was blitzing A gap all day in the game Emery attended. I picture him like our version of Woodson terrorizing Rodgers, rather than Cutler, with the blitz all night long.
