That’s a great take. And guys - please don’t get me wrong. I ****ing love Chase Young. I do think it’s a legit question though. I think Ron Rivera thinks it is too.
The one counter argument to that relates to the level of conviction and belief this franchise has in Montez Sweat. If they truly feel he can be a top five pass rusher year in and year out, then QB should have been the pick if we are doing this all over again in theory.In today's NFL the two most important players are the franchise QB, and the guy who can sack the QB at an elite level.
We got one of them. We need the other.
That would be true whether we drafted Young or Herbert last year.
