Dareus was a beast, even playing on a high ankle sprain and then blew up the combine. 3 year starter, winner and can play every spot on the line.
Games are won and lost at the LOS and our CB's and entire D gets better with a good DT.
PP excelled just as long as Dareus did. But I do agree that Dareus would help out a 3rd round CB a lot better than PP could help out a 3rd round DT. It does all start in the trenches and I don't want to have the worst interior D-line ever for long.
Dareus, Green, and PP are all in the neighborhood where I won't worry or complain a bit. Everybody else I'll be a little nervous. Newton and Fairley I will be super nervous.
I think your the poster who thinks Marshall will be back? I really don't think that's a good idea. Need to cut ties there. He's not a starter.

Why the obsession with DE?
Yeah, I don't get why anyone wants us to take a DE with this pick. We're going to re-sign Johnson and Greg Hardy looks like a player. Not saying we couldn't stand to upgrade, but with the 1st overall pick?
If we don't go QB, it'll almost certainly be a DT. I'm thinking Dareus. I wouldn't touch Fairley.

That #65 could just as easily be used on a CB or QB though (and/or the 3rd round comp pick). No WRs outside of our top pick though. Green has been the only one worth drafting at all, IMO, but Jones made himself a solid candidate if we were to trade down into the double digits of the first round.
