Good DT option

Ok first off there may be alittle homer in me for this but this guy could be a really good find.

Linval Joseph DT from ECU has declared a yr early for the NFL draft. This guy is HUGE and really can dominate. He always reminded me a little of Jenkins and even played some tailback in goaline situations.

He's listed at 6'6" 322lbs but as a freshman was 350+ and still had quick feet. This is a really deep draft for DTs and I think he would be an absolute steal in rnd 4 could go higher.

like his size, ecu has a lot of talent on that dline.cj wilson and ross seem to be pretty good players to look at as well.

His height worries me. Guys like that tend to lose the battle of leverage with those shorter and stockier G's and C. I see him best at the 5 technique (3-4 DE) where I think he will fit perfect.

cleveland will draft him, everyone of their defensive ends is at least 280 lbs and 6'2

My personal preference is to get Earl Mitchell from Arizona, but that's because I'm an alum and he is a big time fan favorite. He's not the 325+ lbs type of DT that we need, but he is quick, has a great base and a very high constant motor. He's getting rave reviews at the Shrine game practices and I would be ecstatic if we picked him up.
