Dareus from Bama is more of a DT.
That is who I believe we would draft.
I would rather trade down, which is going to be valuable because their will be a rookie pay scale before these guys are signed. Both players and Owners want a rookie scale, so this is def going to happen.
Does this guy look like a DE, to you?
6' 3" 310
I'm all for Dareus, but I have seen some refer to him as an end in a 3-4. Guys like Ngata and Marcus Spears are of similar build and play that role in a 34 and if he is better suited for that, then I'd be apprehensive. To me, he looks like an athletic big interior force so as long as he can come in the way Suh and McCoy were last year with that kind of future impact, then he should be our guy. As for the Prince v. Peterson, I think Peterson is as dynamic of a DB that I've seen in quite some time. Prince is a good 1A, but Peterson reminds me of a hybrid Darelle Revis/LaRon Landry athlete. In an ideal world, 2 of our 3 WR's step up (Thomas and Gettis) to balance out Smitty and we draft Dareus. We bring in a coaching staff that can improve our offense and utilize our TE's and roll with Smitty/Thomas/Gettis/Rosario and have our "Suh/McCoy" beast with Dareus in the middle to open up Johnson, Brown, Hardy, Beason and Connor to wreak havoc on D.
