It is? I realize the "next year's class is stronger" argument gets thrown around a lot, but in terms of edge-rushers this class is a actually pretty weak - and incredibly weak by comparison of just the seniors that come out next year. Look, I'm a massive Oregon fan, and a supporter of The Mantis (Jordan), but comparing him to Aldon Smith is just wrong. Smith had considerably better developed pass-rushing moves, was much more explosive, and had only marginally lesser "suddenness"/quick twitch ability. Dion, particularly with his coverage ability, compares much more favorably to the guy Smith replaced, Manny Lawson, or even the guy Lawson replaced, Julian Peterson.
