Don't we have like 5 or 6 on the roster all of them young one we drafted last year. I can see DE we need a vet in my opinon but a rookie would help too at that position. If we get a DT it should a vet. I hope we sign Hollis back instead of drafting 1.

last time I checked we didn't have single DT that was proven to be good enough to even be an average starting DT for Carolina.

Hollis is too old. They want to give reps to young guys in 2010 to see what they got and to let them get better.

Because we need a GOOD DT.

just because we have a lot of bodies to throw in there doesn't mean that we have anyone reliable.

that said....we did a pretty good job eventually of filling in there. we should be able to do that again via FA and the draft. it's not an area i am incredibly worried about. it may take a few games to figure out who should be getting the most PT but it should work out. i feel that with leonard, johnson, tank, and irvin we have a good start but i am far from being confident in that corps. i won't put hayden in there because i have no interest in keeping him beyond TC.

we should only take a DT with the first pick if someone solid falls to us like brian price. there are a couple others i wouldn't mind taking with the first or second pick but i think that WR is the biggest need.

we'll probably go BPA among WR, DE, DT, SLB, SS, QB with the first couple picks.

How many times is this question going to be asked? Its because we just cut 2 veteran starters and to the outside world it appears we have nothing behind (our projected starters both played little last year and finished the season or IR).

Why is this so shocking?

so when we don't draft one they can feel justified in giving us a low grade...

Because as I said in another thread, a Tampa 2 requires a great DT and good DEs. Right now we have 2 DTs Irvin and Louis coming off IR and nobody proven behind them. I would love a veteran also except I am wanting Haynesworth not some castaway from another team's reject pile. Otherwise we need someone in the draft.

As I said before why would you draft 1 then. Your just adding another player who doesn't have NFL exp. and you don't really know can do the JOB. Honestly DT position really needs a vet not another young player you have too train to play the Big league way. Not too mention we don't have a 1st round pick. Wr is a bigger need and DE I think is more of a need too. Even if you draft a DT in the 3rd will he really be a impact player this year or are we just hoping and praying again?

How many Nfl starts will a 2nd or 3rd round rookie have?

I think we're just fine at DT and I don't expect us to draft one at all. Fox's and Hurney's comments seem like they are content with what they have.

I see us making some trades to get an impact DE & WR, then using the remaining picks for depth.

If we don't pick up an impact DT it will just be another mistake we will have made this year. But it won't be the only one so its all good.:thumbsup:
