Mike Vrabel is a defensive guy. He understands to be successful in the NFL you need to have plenty of pass rushers. The Titans will select Landry to help add youth to their pass rush. Derrick Morgan and Brian Orakpo aren’t getting any younger and are great veterans that can help Landry along with his development.
The Titans will look for offensive help later because Landry’s pass rushing ability would be a great value at No. 25. (Justin)
Atlanta has several young players on defense and should continue building their young nucleus. Payne is next in a long line of talented Alabama defensive lineman that are NFL-ready.
Payne could step right in and be the replacement for free agent Dontari Poe, who will command big money on the open market. Along a front seven that has talents such as Deion Jones, Vic Beasley, Grady Jarrett, and Brooks Reed, Payne would fit in nicely to a defense that is on the rise. (Stephen)
The Saints need to find their future signal-caller on both sides of the ball. With the top 5 quarterbacks gone early, the Saints will sprint to the podium to select a top linebacker.
Vander Esch is Frankenstein’s monster. Vander Esch is a coach’s dream with his effort on every play. His blend of size and speed can give New Orleans a presence in the middle they haven’t had since Jonathan Vilma. Vander Esch can help the Saints defense with his relentless motor and can go head to head with a guy like Cam Newton. (Justin)
