PFW (Eric Holmes) also says DT position needs higher priority

62 posts in this topic

I was thinking we'd get a WR or Safety in the third, and perhaps a CB in the 4th.

Like I said before, I don't know if we could pass up on Tyrann Mathieu if he is there in the 4th. Personally, if Bacarri Rambo is available in the third, I think it would be hard to pass him up. But, what do I know?

We don't have a 3rd.

I'd love Hankins with our top pick. The guy commands double teams, and is nimble as a ballerina. He can play 0-5 tech. Now thats versatile.

If Jesse Williams has a very strong combine I'd be happy with him in the 1st too.

My point with Kris Jenkins is.... That he wasn't a first round pick.

It'll be easier to address the lines in free agency...so I don't expect our first two picks to both be.linemen unless our new gm is happy with.our current receiving core.

I still want a stud OT to block and protect the Franchise early, very early.

I'd liked that idea early until the numbers thinned when the underclassmen went back to school. We might not be in position now to get a OT. Now I don't want a guy that would have been drafted later if the other guys had stayed in the draft. To be protecting Cam.

Am I the only one thinking we are not a draft for need team at the moment? It is not like we are one or two players away from the super bowl.

We are set at rb qb de and lb, other than that I think we should just take the top talent available. We might make the play offs next year but I do not we have enough for a deep run until 2014.

You're right in that you don't reach for a need if it can be helped, but positional value plays a large part in it too. Since we're set at QB and DE, the next two high value positions are OT and DT.

We could use either (though arguably we need a DT more than OT, OT is also higher value so it evens out in my opinion) so as long as there's not a player available at a position of lesser value that is obviously head and shoulders above the players at higher value (Warmack is the only player I see that fits that description) we should be picking BPA among Tackles on either side of the line.

Assuming Star, Joeckel and Fisher are all gone when we pick, I'm thinking the BPA will be a DT: Hankins, J. Williams or Richardson. The #3+ OTs don't come close to those 3 DTs in my opinion.

The only decisions to be made, in my opinion, are whether we go with Warmack if he's available or if not which of the 3 DTs. Since we obviously need a run stuffer more than a UT, the question becomes do they think Richardson is better enough than the other two to tip the scale away from the need for a run stuffer. In my opinion Richardson ISN'T that much (if any) better than Hankins or Williams and we should be picking between those two. But I wouldn't be upset if they disagree and think Richardson can be the next JJ Watt or whatever other great UT you can think of (since I'm guessing in a 4-3 Watt would be an UT).

DT is a need but you should not reach for one.

14th is perfect for a DT. There isn't any reaching anymore, unless you're q QB needy team with the #1 pick and QBs suck in this years draft. The rookie pay scale softened the blow. We are in a perfect range to get a great DT, OT, DB, WR.
