I agree completely with the comments on Daniels’ size being a false distinction since there are few smaller players with his strength or ability around. I agree now and that it was no less true when originally picked. The fact that he got the most pressures on the team despite missing 6 games is really telling. Disruption is critical.

I think he may benefit from being able to have a lower percentage of total snaps (whether he likes it or not-the same is true if Kenny Clarke). I look for him to benefit from the growing strength and versatility around him.

Sadly I do agree that he will price himself out of future play in GB. But we’ve prepared for that with this draft and it will be great for the team this year as well as for Daniels personally.

I haven't had time to listen to the KeKe podcast but look forward to it because based on everything I've seen on him you'd thought he be drafted in the first instead of the fifth. He must have some warts.

This time of year, hand size, gets you thrown out of the draft.

Linemen must have at least a size 14 cleat.

It is so overdone.

Daniels has the same thing that Clarke has, the same thing that all great linemen have: a wrestling background. Height smeight.

All I can say is that it's great to be loaded up on young DL talent. This unit should be exciting to watch for years to come. Keke, according to one analyst, has "springy lateral quickness" with the ability to shed blocks and make tackles inside the gaps. Leverage is a problem, though, so he'll have to work on maybe lowering his center of gravity (putting on some pounds?) . The Packer scout said he's a hard worker and capable of doing anything asked of him, so I'm sure the coaching staff will put him in the best position to succeed.

Someone invite Peppers to take Gary and Keke under his wing. Man, would I love to see that....much like the way Kevin Greene helped Clay early. I know....I know..... Greene was a real coach by that point, but Peppers spoke well of GB upon retiring and I wonder if he’d do it?

Nice podcast on the upcoming D; lots of reason for optimism. What I agree;
1) Pettine has influenced the picks and FA to get his guys he needs for his system.
2) Lots of young potential, and moldable under Pettine.
3) The optimism isn't based entirely on 'potential' and euphoria on draft picks; its anchored on solid veterans; clark, daniels, smiths, etc.
4) The new picks built depth, which GB now has on front 7.
Glad for the analysis on Kingsley; a quick, hard working value candidate for the IDL.
5) lots of complementarity; Savage-JAlexander (Safety-CB), and Gary-Smiths, etc. and focus on Dback aggressive coverage with Dline pressure and disruption.

I had hoped GB made a play for KSaunders, but will just have to be hopeful to see how their 5th rnd Kingsley gets slotted in the D, and what he starts to show in spot play this year, and how he compares to MontAdams in the competition.

The podcast crew seem in agreement that GB management had (has) a clear strategy of targeting specific guys (and got them), not BPA. Interesting, since so many called for BPA prior to draft. It seems BPA doesn't really exist at all, or is dead in GB.
Seems much better to draft around scheme fit, unit complementarity, and particular 'types', with a bias around 'need'; more than simply 'best player available'. Otherwise, pretty difficult to beat the other 31 teams on basis of BPA, (unless way smarter than all other GMs, or one drafts first in each round (and consistently gets best of Best Players Available).
