    Getting the best pass rusher is debatable, but Damn you should get the best kicker if you are going to waste a second rounder on him! Can someone please take the drink away from Jason Licht????

    Bolstered DE and CB in FA and now the draft. Had 2 kickers and drafted a 3rd in the 2nd. I sure hope McDonald, McCoy, and Spence stay healthy.

      I get the feeling maybe they’re looking at moving Gholston to DT or using him as a backup? He’s more of a run stopper than an edge rusher anyway and his size and athleticism could work well inside

    I see Smith and Spence rotating in and out and the otherside doing the same with Gholston/ other DE we picked a couple months ago and forgot his name.

    I can’t wait until Spence breaks double digit sacks and Aroyo kicks for 95%… This was a weak draft and we did the best with what was offered… A kicker that will be nail on kicks for the next 20 years is worth every bit of a 3rd and 4th rounder…

    Totally agree Fire. I contend that we paid our originally allotted third rounder. I also contend that kicking has become a more important facet of the game due to the rule changes. I’ll concede that Roberto may have been available later in the Draft but no one knows what the other 31 teams were planning. We have a chance to have our place kicker for the next ten years instead of searching for one every season like we’ve done since Automatica left. You naysayers think about that.

    I love the Spence pick. This guy plays like Von Miller, and as I stated in an earlier post this past week, when Spence was on OSU he was the man to be reckoned with, not Bosa.

    However, I’m disappointed that they moved up and gave up the extra 4th rounder they just got to get the kicker. I think he would have been there in the 3rd round at our spot. I’m glad we got him, and I think he is a great pick, but not at the cost of losing another potential good player, and need.
