...would be a solid prospect. 6-4, 293.

http://www.draftcoun...rthur-Jones.php


May fall due to injuries, but if we're going with a rotation of guys, won't be pressed to start and would provide quality depth as a penetrating type, under tackle. Possible starter and replacement for Damione Lewis down the road. May be available in the 4th round. Just a thought. Blah, blah, blah.

And yes i know we have other needs but theres always free agency and we do have other draft picks.

Mike Neal, Purdue, is another DT worth noting in the 3rd-4th round.

There was talk of jones going in the 1st before he got hurt.Because he could prob play in 34 or 43 he will be taken early.I think he would be there in the 2nd but I want a WR then.

I would like to look at Geno aktins in the 4th.

Beat me to it. If you want a 3 tech (which I assume at that size he is best suited there in our scheme) go with Atkins. The kid impressed me all senior bowl week and dominated the game. My instincts are usually right and I have a feeling he could be the next Tony Brown.

As a Syracuse fan and native who has seen the kid play I really hope we draft him. He was a force with literally no help on the line.

Has Atkins ever played the run in his life?

Fox's scheme or Ron Meeks' scheme? Because they drafted a 300lb guy and traded for two more last season.

I would say this is a meeks scheme just with fox input.

Neither he fits the Tampa/Cover 2 scheme. Its not a requirement but most teams that run one or the other have a smaller penetrating DT or undertackle as it is sometimes called. And the other DT is like the NT in a 3-4 where his main job is to absorb blockers and clog up running holes.

We were in need of a NT type after the loss of Kemo so thats why we went after two of the bigger body DT's. Even though I like Tyler more at UT.

I kind of like the idea of fox keeping meeks from getting to carried away with the undersized dts because we can't afford be slack in run d.

Besides when it comes to interior line (both sides) height is vastly overrated. The whole idea is to get the best leverage and time has shown that a slightly shorter player usually wins the leverage battle. I can understand wanting a 6'3 or above DE but its far more important to me what DT weigh and Atkins at 6'1 290 he is about right for the UT position IMO.
