C'mon guys...enough already.
1st off, there's a reason why there are rumors flying around that McCoy might go #1 to STL. He's the clear-cut better prospect. He's more athletic and has a more complete game. He has more upside and less weaknesses.
I figured MLR of all people would know that Suh is not a "superior run defender" because he makes some of the videos that I watch...the same videos that show Suh getting blown off the ball on occasion and struggling to anchor against the run. McCoy has great lower body strength and understands proper leverage. No one's mistaking him for a NT, but he's explosive off the snap and can penetrate gaps or hold his ground effectively.
I still would prefer Eric Berry over Suh, but one one condition: we play Berry at CB. We need an impact CB much more than an upgrade over Piscitelli, and Berry is quick and explosive enough to play CB. Drafting Berry would give us a young and athletic secondary. I'm surprised it hasn't been mentioned more on here since Berry is about the same size as Talib, only faster, more explosive and more physical.
I agree with Caddy that Gaines Adams wasn't a "need" pick...simply put, it was the right pick and frankly the only option. Our other options were Okoye (riskier, not as big a need), Anderson (inferior talent), or Peterson (great talent, but hard to justify with the $ invested in Cadillac and needs elsehwere).
Gaines was far from polished though. He had solid production but everyone knew he was an athlete first and a football player second. Unfortunately he never learned how to pass rush effectively.
