IDK. Doubt he would have drafted as many if he had hit on one lol. His track record is pretty poor. And Lewis was a tweener, so I kind of remove him from the pure Edge picks.
And he actually said the 3T was the most important part of our D, yet he waited a good while to address.
I'm a big Tomlin fan btw.
You're really trying to make this something it isn't, and I won't let you put words in my mouth or take this off topic.
In terms of pure trait measurements (you can use RAS for this), the profile of an Edge is clearly tilted toward speed, burst, and agility when compared to OL or OTs. I don't think this fact is really debatable.
Given the above is true, an equal leg injury to both an OL and OT, is logically more of an impact to the position that relies most on those traits listed above.
It's not bias. Simple logical opinion based on some pretty clear RAS indicators. If my usage of term "athletic" is what triggered you, you can simply remove athletic and replace it with faster/quicker/more-explosive.
Well why you think Tomlin & Co draft a LB every year no matter what is going on? Most of the time at the top of the draft. I mean Ballard doing the same thing with 4-3 EDGE isnt much different. That's really how important it is to that scheme.
Who cares what anybody says or writes? All that matters is what actually happens on the field 17 (and hopefully more) times this fall and winter.
Opinions have always been like a******s - in that everybody has one. But one thing that’s different nowadays is that most people can publish them, and many do. And, for some reason, a lot of people get worked up about opinions they don’t like.
Hopefully Carson will shut all his critics up. But it’s up to him, his coaches, and his teammates to do that.
