    OK,so I wasnt expecting this pick but the more I look at it I like it. Shea has played multiple positions (LB,DE,ST) but will be mainly DE for us. Work ethic is huge, he will outwork and wear people down and work ethic rubs off on others so expect DL teammates to step up as well. His skill range makes him super versatile. Appearantly, he is a great special teamer. Peppers will demand double teams and Shea will outwork his single coverage. Melton and Peae will step up. Izzy and Toeina will be reliable.

    Draft sum up:
    A good and potentially great DE
    A good and potentially great WR
    A good TE to contend for a spot
    A Safety to compete with major, conte and steltz
    2 Db’s who can play ST and compete

    Sounds exactly like Emery’s predraft conference, 2 starters, 2 contributers to ST and certain packages, 2 depth and ST
