You don't miss your water until your well runs dry. Defensive End is one of those positions you don't appreciate until it's gone. Remember when Aaron Smith was injured in 2007? Our run defense was horrible after that. We didn't have to worry about teams passing all over us because they just shoved the rock down our throats.

You say you don't understand why we didn't go CB b/c the two guys available went 33/34...It's b/c we value DE more highly than CB's in our system. That's how I see it. And now your considering that DE might of been the highest overall team need, in which case the pick makes even more sense doesn't it?
Well said.
