I would be wildly disappointed with Peppers, even in the 2nd or 3rd round. He is not only not that good of a defensive player, he is redundant in Green Bay’s scheme right now. On defense, their only non-pressing position is safety with Clinton-Dix, Burnett, and Brice. Burnett and Brice will both play in that hybrid LB/S role.
In the 1st round, my guess is that Ted will: take a CB, take an edge rusher, or most likely trade back for more picks. Our defense is so bad, we don’t have the luxury of taking an overrated, gadget player like Peppers.
Re: UCLA DL, that Kenny Clark guy looks to be pretty good. I’ll assume you’re referring to Datone, who was definitely a disappointment, but he was always miscast in Dom Capers’ defense.
