The other one

If the most important position on a football team is the QB, then surely the second most favored position is definably the insurance policy LT. So, when attacking the LT, one wants their best LDE to line up against the LT to put pressure on the blind side of the QB, unless..............you're one of us who can't walk and chew gum at the same time while looking in a mirror. In a momentary (WHOLE DRAFT) lapse of reason, I was looking to draft a pass rusher. It is now, after looking at the picks, that I remember that the LDE is actually on the strong side to assist against the run and the RIGHT DEFENSIVE END is the one that applies the pressure.
That's my story and I'm sticking to it.

Yes, the RDE will be against the LT, not the LDE.
