Jesus, no. Like I said - different games.
What he does is huge at that level. And if this were the mid-1970s it would be huge here.
But there's no question that his game, while it translates extremely well to the next level, isn't nearly as important as getting your pass rush and your quarterback in place.
That's why I've said I'd trade back into the first for him if he started sliding. If we take Geno, and with Houston and Hali in the fold, we have the QB and the pass rush taken care of. So now you address your intermediate coverage, your leadership and firm up your run-stopping by taking Te'o.
