i'd agree about DT if it wasn't for them being so much harder to predict than any other position.
and then you've got to find someone that isn't just someone that is the DT of the future, but one that can hit the ground running.
i'd much rather DT be someone we pick up in FA or trade for while drafting WR and FS in the draft. much greater chance of success doing that, imo.
The thing is there's not enough talents at the DT position in FA next year. If I have to say, Alan Branch may be the best man out of that group (Branch, Jason Jones, Henry Melton, Sopoaga, Randy Starks, Glen Dorsey). The receiver position is lacking talents also (excluding Jennings, Bowe, Wallace). But the thing is as long as 89 is playing, I can live with it. What I cant live with is seeing our D getting pound by the running game every Sunday. Ron Edwards is also an old vet who is a liability for us.
I do believe its harder to predict a DT compare to all other positions, but every pick and player is pretty much a hope and cross your finger pick. You just gotta hope it pans out. Brockers and Cox seemed to be playing pretty well as rookies, so its pretty safe to say that Star and Hankins are safe picks. People have told to me that they believed Brockers/Cox are better prospects than Star. Its a joke to me to think that they're better than Star. I even think that John Jenkins UGA is a legit prospect. You cant tell me you dont wanna jizz thinking about having a (Star, Hankins, Jenkins) making life easier for Keuchly in the middle. lol Right?
We been talking DT in the draft since Jenkins left, and its really time that we address this position. This is the year to do so with as great of prospects that are coming out. The draft should go DT and FS and WR through FA. Thats just my opinion.
