Gregory Russo Miami, Dolphins, Jets discussed on CBS Sports Radio
I think got a little overshadowed by You know Jerry, Judy and Henry rugs and then both going in the first round. When it came down to it, too, had the ball in 2019 before getting hurt. Devante Smith. More often than not was the guy getting in those crucial situations. Obviously, we a lot of people remember the game winning touchdown when they were both freshmen in the national title game and You just seem to have a special connection. I'm sure that will factor into the Miami Dolphins evaluation of Devante. He went down and see a ball this week couldn't play because of the hand that he suffered the injury suffered in the national title game. He just wanted to hang around and be there and convince the Dolphins that he loves football and convinced them that he should be the pick of three and I mean, you're right. There are always exceptions. You just have to ask yourself. Is he gonna have trouble in the physical aspect, like getting off of press coverage? I don't know, man, his his route precision. His quickness off the line has burst. You know, he works back to the ball. He does so many little things well. I'm willing to suggest that the way it should really be that big an issue Eric and home joining us here on CBS Sports Radio Carl Dukes in the day. NFL draft for Yahoo Sports. Check him out. Follow him. Um, for me. The draft started to here's Why. Trevor Laurence gone. We know that Jacksonville Urban Meyer's It's a done deal. The draft started to because if the Jets believe in Donald, then they don't have to go quarterback. They got a new coach, though, and he comes from the defensive side of the football. So who's the best defensive player? If the Jets go defense and that quarterback right or or even if they trade that pick to a quarterback needy team moved down a handful of slots because I don't know that there's a defender. Would take it too. I just don't think Let's start a corner, right? I mean, you have Caleb Farley of Virginia Tech. He opted out. You have Patrick, Lieutenant Alabama. Really Good players. Second pick in the draft, boy. I don't know. You know, we saw Jeffrey Oh kuda struggle is the third selection last year. Orders don't typically go quite that high. So you know safety. Is there one? I would take their no linebacker? Probably not in this era. No, you know, pass rusher. There's a lot of players I like. I don't know that there's that one who's clearly head and shoulders above the rest. It's probably one of the week or defensive tackle classes as well. So you know, I just don't know that there's that one. Guy. At that spot who would be worth taking It number two And then the question becomes, boy. Okay, if it's if it's an offensive player in on quarterback there You know, seeing questions exists. I think it's a bit of a strange year, so I think the trade down option is best. And then let's see where they land. Are they still picking? You know 4th 5th 6th, or they're going a little farther down and accumulating feature picks. What? Yeah, I'm the defense's side of the ball there a lot of players. I really like. I don't know that there's that one guy, though, that I truly love and would feel great about taking in the top five real quick. We've heard a lot about Gregory Russo Miami, he opted out had a great year, but We didn't see him this year is he considered to be the best pass rusher? Turkey study. He's got amazing upside right? 15.5 sacks is the red. You're fresher and give me a break. But again, a lot of that was on athleticism. Just pure rock talent. It wasn't his pass rush technique. He's a little refinement. He is not universally beloved. But there's a lot of fascination with what his upside could be. Eric, May. I appreciate you today. Great stuff. Listen, this is gonna be a lot of fun, and it is gonna be so intriguing. It just it's gonna be so much for the dark time of the year, man. If this guy's gonna play Hey, man, have a great day.
