Mike Vrabel is a defensive guy. He understands to be successful in the NFL you need to have plenty of pass rushers. Much like Vrabel, Hubbard is a player that is constantly pursuing the ball and doesn’t stop until the whistle.
The Titans will select Hubbard 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 Hubbard along with his development. (Justin)
Previous Pick: Harold Landry
The Falcons defensive line has gone from a strength to a weakness. Losing Dontari Poe and Adrian Clayborn in free agency will hurt in stopping the run and rushing the passer. In a division with Cam Newton, Drew Brees, Mark Ingram, Alvin Kamara and Jameis Winston, the team needs both.
Bryan can offer both. He is strong and agile as a defensive tackle, helping plug the run. However, he can still rush from the middle and disrupt pockets and allow edge rushers like Vic Beasley and Brooks Reed to get to the QB. He would be a great fit for a defense with young pieces and can start from day one. (Stephen)
Previous Pick: Unchanged
The trade back isn’t a costly one because they end up taking a prospect that they would have chosen at pick 17. He could be the plug in the middle that the defense has been looking for. (Justin)
Previous Pick: Vita Vea
