I'm actually surprised that I haven't heard much if any b###hing about lack of grabbing pass rushers.
I honestly think it's much simpler ... I think they simply just grabbed the guys they thought would be the most helpful to the team... and the back-ups on the roster had little to do with it (other than maybe the lack of starter depth at CB and back-up depth at WR).
But MM said it himself after the draft, they're still looking for more pass rush help.
Though, the little film I've seen of draft pick edge rusher Kendall Donnerson... I've been fairly intrigued for a 7th round selection. Donnerson seemed be some very good athlete qualities and aggression (maybe too aggressive, willing to hit guys late). Though, as of right now, he might be a better athlete, than football player... the two (athlete/aggression) might give him a chance if he can develop more with more coaching and time.
On one hand, I don't think Donnerson has a chance of making the final 53 as a rookie... on the other hand... I could see him making some flash plays in the preseason games and his speed/aggression on STs making him uncuttable if they have a spot open for a developmental guy.
