    Draft 2012 Pass Rushers

    It's clear as day that we need a pass rusher next year. Not sure if the Cameron Wake Story in the NFL is over or not . . . JT is more than done and Misi . . . ugh.

    Considering we should be taking a QB in round 1 . . . who are we looking at in round 2/3 as a potential pass rusher?

    Please include 3-4 OLB prospects and 4-3 DE prospects.

    I really like Bruce Irvin. He definitely has the build and he is extremely athletic. Nice first step and explosive.

    DEs

    OLBs
    http://walterfootball.com/draft2013OLB3-4.php

    A lot of names are about the same.

    If we go to a 4-3, I wouldn't be shocked to see us draft a smaller DE and use him as a Rush OLB in a 4-3 like the Redskins did with Orakpo before going to a 3-4 or like Denver is doing with Von Miller

    I really don't see us going after an de/olb type. I think a three tech or a five tech would be the pick. Jared crick is likely to fall because of a recent injury most compare him to jj watt. Could be a value pick for us next year

    That would be nice. Makes me think what could of been if we signed Peppers when he hit the market a few years back.

    Finding 3-4 OLBs is tough. The reason that teams like the Steelers are solid as a 3-4 D is that they draft pass rushers every year. Guys who play 3-4 OLB take more time to get up to speed than guys who get drafted into a 4-3 scheme. Guys like Joey Porter and James Harrison were elite pass rushers and it took them several years to develop. Conar Barwin is another example of a guy just coming around after several years. In a year or two in Pitt we'll be hearing about Jason Worlds and Chris carter tearing it up off the edge.

    I like Jonathon Massaquoi a lot.

    Bruce irvin is a good pass rusher but still needs a lot of work, As WVU fan i have seen everyone of his games and for the most part of this season against good competition he has been relatively invisible.

    We definitely need to find another pass rusher. Its the reason why our pass defense sucks. No pressure means terrble DBs no matter what. However, I havent seen a great pass rusher that will make me draft one in this draft. Might be one that exist, but i just havent seen him.

    One guy that I'm really excited about is Brandon Jenkins from Florida State. He's got a nice burst, long arms (which h knows how to use), and great functional strength. Right now he looks like the best guy that we have a shot at.

    I think Bruce Irvin is the most explosive pass rusher in this draft class. I'm not sure how he does against the run but as far as pure pass rushers go, he's the S***.
