We were gashed up the middle all season long last year and the year before. We needed to address that issue.

This pick was made because of how our linemen have tended to wear down as games go on each of the last two seasons... Deepen the rotation, and strengthen the overall defense... Particularly late in games, when we tend to run out of steam... Smart, long-term plan you have there, Dave...

Gettleman's confidence is starting to more closely resemble arrogance.

1. I would have preferred OG with Warford to plug in on the right side.

2. Other than that, I love love love love love this pick. You can NEVER have enough good linemen. And short may be the best pure pass rushing DT in the draft.

Whooooop!

Whelp, at the end of the day our biggest need maaayy turn into our biggest strength. No way to argue with that type of thinking.

178 yards and 2 TDs to Bryce Brown speaks volumes.

CJ, Kraken, Alexander, Star, Short, Dwan; seems like we are trying to copy the Giants... go figure.

This is exact how the Giants built their D.

Nasty DLine and pedestrian CB's. netted them 2 SB's

Wow, forum went down longer with that pick than when we took Star. It's a perplexing pick, but Gettleman is trying to build a dominant D-line and that's a great thing to have...

He averaged 15+ tackles for a loss and 6+ sacks over the last 3 years. Easily the most productive DT in the draft. If we can harness this kid's potential, he could be a better pick than Star.

I would have preferred us to address a different need, with that being said we are set for DT for the long term now which is great.

So what DE/DT will be around in the 4th? Next year we'll draft 6 new OL men.
