But in terms of who I'd take in the first, I am very high on Nick Perry. Not as big as Upshaw but way more explosive/faster and has a deep pass rush repertoire (spin move, shed, power, speed rush, etc.). If I am going with a pass rusher that's my guy.
Woodley's big knock was he was a pu$$y and soft...his change of direction, pursuit skills and ability to play in space was light years ahead of Upshaw's but he pulled himself out of the Senior Bowl on monday complaining about a bad hamstring then refused to workout at the combine and red flags went flying....he did do incredibly well at his pro-day...
Perry has the athleticism UPshaw does not but i'd be concerned about what's going on between the ears...he's one of those guys that goes right when the play goes left or attacks the QB 10 seconds after the ball's been handed off and the RB is already over the line of scriummage...
