i think for teams that aren't in "win now" mode or who don't have a lot of holes to fill, it's a sound direction.
i'm in this boat, not feeling dt's are particularly worth a high first round, with the exception of a handful of guys. It is definitely a need but they do usually take a while to be worth the pick.
i just don't think we can afford to pick players that aren't ready to start right away. rookies on the OL or at DT usually play their rookie year like they are on roller skates, regardless of where they are drafted. it's only a few among the very elite that that doesn't happen to.
this team has to find a way to win soon.
