Russ Lande on twitter has been comparing him to draft busts Ryan Sims, and Jimmy Kennedy. My question to everyone is, is he really worth the #9 pick just based off athletic prowess? Regardless of his lack of college production against weak opponens

Answer: Hell no. his performance in college in a bad conference was inconsistent and unspectacular. No DT in this draft is worth the #9 pick because there are too many questions about each.

If they did not televise the combine or publish the results, he would be a second rounder in most minds. Keep in mind that any NFL news in February is sensationalized by the media. It was fun to see him run a 4.98 and 44 reps is awesome, but should he not have DOMINATED at Memphis with these mad skills? Did not happen.

Be prepared to be attacked because you dare question the measurables.

No. The only DT that should be considered at 9 is Devon Still and that would be a reach.

Poe just has the biggest potential of any DT in the draft.

Been saying for weeks...Claiborne, Coples or trade down. IMO those are the only two players in this draft who can come in and immediately contribute to the defense. If the staff really thinks that we MUST HAVE an OT to replace Gross then stay at #9 and draft Reiff but if those two defenders are gone then don't stay at #9 and draft a workout warrior. Really don't think that Hurney will do that...we typically draft on production, not combine numbers.

So...Claiborne, Coples, Reiff (possibly if we can't trade down), or trade down. That's what we'll do.

Cox should be considered as well. He's been so under the radar is blows my mind.

Yea, if we traded back, id consider Poe but I wouldnt take him with the 9th pick. Just doesnt have the film or production for me to spend that high of a pick on him.


Like the poster above said, Cox should be considered with this pick in my opinion.

Still is a beast. Really like him. Especially better than any other DT.

I'm beginning to think we should go DE in the first, then CB in the 2nd. Something like...

1-Quinton Coples/Melvin Ingram/Courtney Upshaw
2-Josh Robinson/Stephon Gilmore/Jayron Hosley

Poe doesn't look like a top 10 pick to me. In the long term (a few seasons) he could develope into a good run blocking DT in a 4-3 imo.

Quinton Coples will add more strength to couple (derp) with his height, speed, and athleticism, making him a dangerous pass rusher. Or that should be the plan anyway. In the top ten you need to try and get an athletic freak who can be molded into a dominant player. Coples is our best bet at 9 imo, but I strongly doubt he will be there.

Coples in the first
Harrison smith in the second
I don't know if coples will be there and I'm not sure if another edge rusher would be worth the pick
