Brockers vs Poe

I love Brockers personally bc of his size and believe he could be better in the next level. Poe is an unmovable tank who runs like a LB. Though when comparing these two DTs, I believe Brockers is much better who reminds me of Justin Tuck. He seems like he cud play dt,nt, or de. Many people seems to look at Poe's bench press n 40 yd times and put him as a top ten pick already. 40 times doesn't mean anything. Brockers has a faster 'football' speed than Poe. Not 40 yd speed but 'football' speed. I'd take Brockers over Poe. DT is our biggest need unless Claiborne fall to us at 9th. Fua n McCLain are a joke. Two waisted picks where we could've took Cb Chris Culliver .

Not sure how Brockers and Tuck are remotely similar.

I'm not saying Brockers is Tuck. Brockers is more of Seymour. But what I'm saying is Brockers cud almost line up at any position on our DLine like how the Giants did with Tuck. Other than Johnson we have no one else . Hardy is an average player who can play in situational pass rushing down only .

So, first you said Brockers reminded you of Justin Tuck, then you said he's more of a Richard Seymour... I'm confused.

Either way, Brockers is still really young, so you're drafting on potential alone. Brockers also played on a hellacious defense that had pro players all over it, Poe didn't.

If I didn't make it clear enough in the beginning, here it goes:

Brockers has "Seymour's like potential", but who reminds me "can play almost every position on the DLINE from DE-DT-NT like TUCK". It's my fault for not stating that Brockers = Seymour + Tuck. If you wanted me to get that out. There you go.

and doesn't almost every year, every NFL team draft on potential? Didn't we draft Cam Newton on his potential alone. Cam had one full year of NCAA Div I to showcase only and we still drafted him for his potential to get better in the NFL (i.e. accuracy, footwork, vision), and look how he turn out. and Cam played with a running back who could be a first round in the next couple years, Nick Fairley, Darvin Adams who was really good in college, and a pretty good o-line at Auburn.

i'd be happy with either one...or fletcher cox. crap...or even devon still.

cox is probably more ready to go than the others, but i think any of these guys would be an improvement and a great addition to the Dline.

sure...there are no suh's in this draft, but how many years do those guys show up? this is a solid DT class.

I just heard Michael Lombardi compare Poe to Kris Jenkins. If MH thinks so....

I think if we are truly looking to upgrade the DT position we should draft the best DT. Whether or not he can play different positions on the line would be a secondary at best concern.

Hey im being truthful. They could pan out and become average players in the future for us but imagine if we took Culliver. Our CB problem would've been solve. Not saying I knew Culliver was going to be that good. But look, Kearse and Shirley were undrafted rookie free agents who came one and learn the playbook later, played better than both FUA and MCCLain. and now there's some rumors of how Rivera might wanna play more 3-4 . Whats the use of drafting two 43 DTs?
