I like Doom, but.. It's not too far fetched to think that a rookie could come in, like an Oakfor/Anash in the first round, and produce 10 sacks, and actually provide more of a stronger run support presence..
That in no way means I'm implying we are or should get rid of Doom!
Which rookies have actually had 10+ sacks? In the last 5 years:
Von - 2nd overall
Aldon - 7th overall
Suh - 2nd overall
Orakpo - 13th overall
Not to mention one of them (Aldon) is pretty horrible in run defense. So yeah, at #28, it is pretty far fetched.
