    Future of Pass Rush

    With all the hoopla, thank god the Ravenís didnít trade for Ramsey, what do we do about getting a legit troublemaking OLB or DE?

    I browsed around and aside from Clowney who will be a free agent next year, the FA pool looks lean if I am reading the tea leaves correctly. I am not detracting from what we have, who knows maybe Ferguson shows no need if he ever hits the field.

    A lot of you guys are draftniks, I admit, I donít follow college much, but I did some browsing, this guy stood out to me. In all likelihood, we will have to part with picks to move up within the draft to get him, but I think Terrell Lewis looks like a future great rusher.

    Crazy that Lewis is only the second best edge rusher in this class that Maryland was in on down to the end of the recruitment, after possible 1-1 pick Chase Young... the DMV is always so loaded with edge talent and Maryland always seems to come up just short.

    It should be a good class though and I honestly wouldnít mind doubling up in the first and the third the way we did with WRs this year. Even if Ferguson hits, Williams and Bowser look more or less like what everybody except for me and Bc expected them to, Za obviously isnít a long term solution, and who knows what kind of crazy money somebody might throw at Judon if he has a 10 sack type year

    There are some intriguing names for free agent DE and OLB
    https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-agents/defensive-end/
    https://www.spotrac.com/nfl/free-age...de-linebacker/

    What would be nice is if Judon becomes the most productive pass rusher, and thereís names of a lot of players who are going to be available who arenít going to command big dollars that would be improvements. Draft someone as well and next season the pass rush could be totally bolstered. They have nothing close to a Suggs/Dumervil tandem right now.

    The Gerald McCoy deal was only for 1 season. Maybe he takes Baltimore up on an offer the second time around. I also see Whitney Mercilus on that list of potential free agents. What are the chances he actually makes it to free agency?

    If Judon excels, that would be awesome, even more so if Ferguson develops. I'm not high on the free agents. Does Suh have much left and he likely wants way more than he is worth, but he isn't edge anyway. I think his best days are behind him.

    McCoy strikes me as knucklehead, signing with the Panthers just for spite, enjoying 0-2 and maybe more without Cam.

    Sure but like, does that make you think heíll play worse? He made he a knucklehead, but he doesnít seem like a bonehead in a way that would affect his play or our locker room

    Nothing, just bitter he signed elsewhere to be honest.

    Za Darius seems to have improved our D a lot so far. Without him we would be terrible on D.

    And TEs the year before.
    It's our new draft method. Take two!

    Yah, good point.

    Maybe we can compete. DeCosta has to keep some powder dry for Stanley. But who else among our pending FAs would be a priority?

    Peanut? Pierce? Levine?
