I think all you Big 10 fan Loins fans don’t understand how special KT is, but if the DE you get at the turn is Cameron Thomas, I’d have no problem with y’all going Hamilton/Thomas.
If I'm wrong then c'est la'vie, but I didn't notice anything discernable about KT in comparison to Hutch and Karlaftis. I don't think any of them are Chase Young, Myles Garrett, Nick Bosa, etc caliber. They're all in that next tier. Nothing wrong with that tier, but I think there's a clear line. We'll see if athletic testing proves my eye wrong though.
Assuming it's not then I won't bang the table if the Loins (or another team in the top 8 or so) go CB over EDGE. They're both foundation positions. Can't do it banking on getting a particular EDGE at the top of round 2 though. If they're that good then expect them to go in the back half of round 1.
In order to justify Hamilton over them I think a team needs to convince themselves that the EDGE's and CB's available are not foundation pieces. An A- EDGE/CB is more valuable than an A+ safety in today's game. The one variable that can sway the calculation is who they are in the locker room though.
