Prospect on the rise: Jesse Williams DT Bama

Love it! With another good drafted DT, and some decent depth (I'm fine with Fua as the 3rd string DT) we'll have a very solid defensive line. I'm so excited to see what Johnson and Hardy can do with two good defensive tackles and a better secondary.

This draft is stacked with defensive linemen so we could probably find another one in the 5th-6th round... We might have to cut Chris Gamble based on the salary cap so we might need to draft a CB in the 2nd round David Amerson or Logan Ryan will be there most likely. My insight is to draft a DT in the first and a O-Linemen in the 2nd though

My preference is to go DT/WR or DT/OL. Call me crazy, but I'd be fine next year with Thomas/Norman/Captain (should be able to resign him for peanuts) as long as we have a dominant front 7 (completed by acquiring a young stud DT). I love Gamble, but the secondary wasn't terrible after he was gone and we played some pretty good passing offenses (Saints, Falcons) and that was with a 7th round rookie also starting at SS.

I have a feeling we won't be able to resign Captain (just a hunch)... I feel our main goal should be to find a RG and a potential replacement for Jordan Gross. I'd love to see more of Lamont Bryant in the preseason the kid as potential, 6'5 runs a 4.3-4.5.

Lol what??? Yea it's a stacked DT class but half of them are prob going in the 1st. Which scrub do you want in the 5th or 6th?

That's very true, I really don't know who I want in the draft in the later rounds yet let me see the combine/Senior Bowl

I'm not that mad that we put him on the PS because he needed a little polishing

here's some highlights

Yeah i knew about him from pre season, i just didnt know he was that fast. We could use some more speed at receiver outside of Smith. Murphy just cant catch.

You got that right... I have high hopes for Lamont Bryant, hopefully we'll see him with Cam in the preseason (or at least a better QB than Clausen)

I'm usually all against taking a dt early, but the kid is a beast. Would def take at 14.

Most of the mocks I have seen have Williams in the 2nd round.

They haven't caught up with the times then. lol

This is more like his current draft ranking. It also should sky rocket more as it gets closer to draft time, I'd expect him to be the 2nd ranked DT, maybe 3rd and be a top 15 prospect before it's all said and done.
