First, I do not watch College Football, so I very much relied on NFL draft profiles which I searched for on Google, mostly NFL used but the odd nfldraftbuzz came up first. I treated PFF rankings and the report as my scout reports, then drafted based on what I feel we need.
I focused in on the defensive line as I eventually landed with a "drafting starters and backups philosophy on defensive line". This includes backup LB as we got starters in free agency. I also addressed our main offensive line needs in the 2nd round. At first, I wasn't so sure about taken so many edge defenders and defensive interior players but lets be real, we need starters and backups on the defensive line. I do wonder since we haven't made many moves there, that Poles thinks the class is deep on defensive line.
Some names drafted I seen mentioned positively here on WCG.
