Assuming it's not a NT (we can debate that later), I like Elam. I really like Elam. I had hoped that he would slip to the end of R2, but daggnabbit, he had to go & have a great season. LOL
Wiil Dion Jordan be there at 32?
If not, I am leaning towards Elam at 32.
He was resigned to the practice squad after that, though.
Anyway, I do like Elam. I think he's definitely worth a first round pick, and assuming we're picking at 32, we can't miss with him. I was hoping he'd have a terrible year too and he'd just be sitting there in the second round waiting for us to pick him, but nooooo - he had to go off and play well and catch everyone's eye.
Dion won't be there at 32. He's probably a top 15 pick based on his potential and upside, but pass rushers slid last year and I think they will this year. If we are picking at 21, I think we can have a choice of who to take in terms of OLB. Montgomery, Mosley, Ogletree and Jordan will be on the board. I mean, any of those guys would be worth that pick which is why I wasn't jumping off any buildings when we struggled early in the year.
If we're at 32, it's gotta be Elam, barring something really unexpected happens. If they're not happy with Elam, trade up and get Mosley / Montgomery / Jordan and solidify our OLB for the next decade with Woodley and whomever on the other side.
