    In all seriousness though, Dion Jordan. Dude is just a freak. Von Miller esque.

    I would Like to say Taylor as he will benefit from the Wake/Jordan Rush.

    Dion Sims. I just have a feeling that he turns into a "star."

    I hope Terrell Sinkfield grasps as much knowledge as he can and is able to compete at a high level this year.

    Two reasons:

    1. Injury to his shoulder. He's not even close to 100 percent. And an injury of this type has to be really close to 100 percent or it will re-injure, due to the force generated on that area of the body in playing DE and LB

    2. Tweener status. Jordan is not a clear-cut DE or LB. He's not set up to plug into one position in the NFL and dominate right away. He's got the skills to be a difference maker, but it's going to take him some time to find his stride, NFL wise. Jason Taylor, who many are comparing Jordan to, struggled his first couple years, even as he flashed plays. Good OTs pimped him out, his first year... but then he adjusted and became a consistent force.

    Put those two things together and you've got to temper enthusiasm with reality.

    IF he is a CONSISTENT difference-maker by the end of the year, where other teams cannot take advantage of him in the running game, etc., then I will be very happy. First part of the season he will struggle some, even as he flashes plays, imo.

    AND, coming on a D with so many new parts as this one, it may mean the team will struggle some too, at first.

    LD
    This is very true, which is why I'm trying to limit my expectations. Therefore, I want to see Taylor as a capable starter

Also can't wait to see Jordan doing some switching around from 4-3 DE to 3-4 OLB, with Odrick moving back and forth as well. Pretty sure thats the plan anyway. Gilleslee is also excting as well, looks like he could be a beast. Reminds me of Willis Mcgahee during college. So many choices, Sims could be huge for us if he can make RZ plays. "I guess I sorta like em all. "
    Those are the same 3 guys that intrigue me. Jordan, Taylor and Gillislee.

    I'm gonna go away from the obvious pick in Jordan and point out Jelani Jenkins. Rated as the best cover LB in this draft, he's also a smart player and we have uncertainty at LB. Wheeler and Ellerbe are not exactly proven commodities to the extent of my knowledge. Not saying they won't work out, just saying it's a little uncertain. That means a little less ground for Jenkins to make up to be up to snuff and get in the mix. I see him playing a bigger role this year than we realize.

    The first time Jordan destroys Brady I am going to go crazy. I just can't wait to see his speed on the outside and how fast he should be able to get to the QB since Wake will be the one getting Double teamed.

    Leon Sandcastle.

    Seriously, I'm looking forward to watching Gillislee develop. I think he's going to be special.
