I don't know how he will translate to a 3 - 4 olb.In the 4 - 3 he had 4.5 sacks...but I see very intense speed with him.But I don't know how he will translate to a 3 -4....thus this pick will be another potential Gholston bust if we make it.I never would take a conversion guy in the top 10.Too risky.I would do it if we trade back and he is still there.
Every draft pick has risk...
And the reason he had 4.5 sacks is because LSU had their defenders containing a lot of the QB's they faced this year. That was clearly said by him and his teammates.
Go back to his 2011 film to see him rushing the passer more.
And for the billionth time, Gholston didn't fail at all because he played with his hand in the dirt more in college, he failed because he simply couldn't rush the passer at the NFL level.
All of these guys are rushing from the outside on passing downs... Comes down to whether you can do it.
After going back and forth on Mingo, I feel he's going to make it work. INjury could always change everything, but he can absolutely make it work.
