Why We Should Have Taken Nick Fairley Wiith the 10th Pick. When we were up on the board with the 10th pick of the 2011 draft we should have taken Nick Fairley. Now first before you say that we did better by trading down I support that argument because we did end up picking up a lot of draft picks. BUT Nick Fairley was rated by nfl.com a 8.5. That is higher than our 8.3 on Ryan Kerrigan. Nick Fairley at Auburn had 56 tackles and a monster 11.5 sacks. Now Auburn is in a tough competition in the SEC. Possibly the hardest competition in the NCAA. He also had an INT but nobody cares. This was his junior he did all this and his sophomore was shown that he was used limited with 28 tackles and only 1.5 sacks. I could compare Nick Fairley to Albert Haynesworth with his beastlyness. No before y’all go crazy on me Albert before being a little prick to everyone had 8.5 sacks IN THE NFL. He was regarded as the top DT in the nation at one point of time. Now Nick Fairley was used in a 4-3 defense which we do not run. But he could have gone to DE and still boss. When I was watching the draft and our pick was up I was just thinking "Let Dan Synder pay a couple of guys to take Orakpo’s and Fairley’s girlfriends and let those two on the field. We don’t need anyone else." This guy is a beast who was regarded at one point, better than Dareus Marcell and a first pick overall. This was literally a god-send to us. The only thing nfl.com and nationalfootballpost.com said was lacking with him was his maturity. He seemed to be not taking things seriously. Now we did have a player who had those same qualities back in last year’s draft. Yes I am talking to you "Trench" Williams. But we did not take Nick Fairley which could have proved to be monstrous for us and absolutely destroy the North East division. For now we can only hope that if we do have a lockout during the season it lasts until RIGHT after the lions game. I am deathly scared to see Suh and Fairley lined up right at our questionable interior line.
