MIKE FLORIO: We mentioned the Tyree Wilson bear hug later. I assume we're going to get to see him lift Roger Goodell off the ground now. His window was 2-7. There was concern about his foot.

The Raiders unconcerned and they could have had Jalen Carter there. They got Maxx Crosby and Chandler Jones. Tyree Wilson, just it's a rotation now.

Look at the best defensive lines, they've got seven, eight. Oh jeez, that cracked his back a little bit. You got seven or eight guys that you can bring in whenever you want and a Guy that you really like falls to the Raiders at number seven, Chris.

CHRIS SIMMS: Yeah, a superstar, right? He's got superstar potential. This is a guy that could lead the NFL in sacks. It's Myles Garrett-ish, right?

It's that type of guy. It's one of those guys that when you see in person you go, holy crap, that guy is made to play defense end in the NFL. That's what he was born to do. He's got everything.

The foot injury was a concern, sure, like we talked about. I think too, what you're seeing, you're right, Jalen Carter on the board and what you've seen is the New England faction of people in the top 10 right. Monti Ossenfort with the Cardinals, Nick Caserio with the Texans, know Dave Zeigler And Josh McDaniels with the Raiders. They weren't going to mess with the Jalen Carter thing.

They were probably scared of some of the things that we've heard and you brought up earlier in the show. But Maxx Crosby with this guy, Chandler Jones, who's coming down the homestretch of his career and not quite the same pass rusher he was, this guy can do everything. So that's where it's awesome. Willie McGinest with an extra gear coming around the edge for old Patriot fans or that kind of mold of player, that's what we're talking about here.
