BPA won't be a DT at 9

DT would be drafted off need and potential at 9

I didn't say DT. I said lineman. Offensive, defensive, anywhere across the lines.

I love how confident you are of the Panthers draft board is. That is just going to set yourself up for disappointment.

I am not confident in who they will draft.... As I said in THIS thread if Claiborne doesn't drop it is anyone's guess.

I just said DT won't be BPA at 9. They could draft one...but need and potential will be big factors in why

Potentially I love Poe...but i agree with the concerns most have(didnt dominate in the C-USA) but a DT is a weird position to assess. If he is the only good player on the team..you scheme away from him and since he is in the interior you are limited making plays on the outside.

i have not seen him play at all(So I have no real passion either way)

-Ingram is dominant and atheletic but a bit undersized and looks best as a OLB in a 3-4. Howeverthey said the same thing about Terrell Suggs....who I was wanting in his draft.

-Coples..I see a less agile Peppers when I see him but he wasnt as dominant as Peppers was...was he? He seems like he is another Hardy type guy to me..which we have..

Decastro, I would like this over Reiff as the Saints have shown..get those interior line studs elite and your QB is upright. saints have Sedrick Ellis now Bunkley up the middle...Bucs have a couple of great Ends and if healthy good DTs..Decastro is a great fit(despite draft myths..a G shouldnt go that high).

Of course all this is moot if Claiborne is avaible for some reason.. But Jenkins-Gilmore in the second if it all works out? Id be fine with Poe-Cox-Decastro-Coples in the1st and Gilmore/Jenkins in the second!

I also like the MLb out of Cal in the second..sure undersized but was fast and dominated in college...killed the combine as well..

here's one reason i like coples: 3 downs.

poe will play two and rest frequently. coples will play outside and rotate in on third down. then let johnson hardy coples and whoever get after the QB.

what rounds did the saints draft their all pro OGs?

actually, look at those OGs who played in the pro bowl and see where they were drafted.

it's not just that you shouldn't draft an OG that high...it's that you don't need to to get a great one and/or have a great oline.

it's all about the right blocking scheme, finding the best fits for it, and line chemistry.

This. Hardy is great at pass rushing but needs to sure up his run defense. Is Coples pretty good against the run?

Poe wouldn't have to come off the field on 3rd down.

he probably will as part of the rotation.

Coples would also be a part of the rotation.

Coples is strong against the run. GT attacked him low and he got frustrated while they ran all over the heels (like GT did to many opponents). but he played hard, and worked through chips and blockers with good motor. very strong and speed to run plays down from behind. if he's there at nine, i take him.

you dont rush the passer with 350 pound bowls of jelly. you line up four 280 pounders than can move like the giants did this year. plus coples is 6'6"... try to three step drop that mr. brees

These comments are strikingly familiar to another former Heel. If he's as good as you advertise, I wouldnt bat an eyelash, give me a DE.

I would still take Claiborne even if all that info is on point though. Character reasons I s'pose.

I'm not on the Poe wagon, but I won't be disapointed if we take him.

I think whatever defensive player we select needs to have produced at a high level in College. Thats the only thing that matters to me when looking at a prospect. I could care less how much they benched or how fast they ran the 40 in. I want to know that when the pads are on, the player we take know's how to perform at a high level
