I have rest my case regarding Aaron Donald. You all are welcome to repeat your arguments if you choose. I would be happy to continue discussing everything other than Aaron Donald.
Your problem is that you looking at from a narrow view.
If Donald is the best interior pass rusher in this class, and you have the opportunity to take him, you adjust your subpackages to utilize the talent.
This team, as has been pointed out already, takes more snaps in subs than in base.
And, for the record, Tamba Hali played LDE in a 43 base and registered 9 sacks his rookie year.
