Before that, we have seen many DTs mocked to us the previous few years such as Marcell Dareus, Fletcher Cox, Michael Brockers, and a couple guys that I would've liked to have in the 2nd Rd of last year: Devon Still and Jerel Worthy. Dareus, Cox, and Brockers had very, very good rookie seasons to start their long careers, while Still and Worthy were limited.
I would like the huddle's opinion on comparing Star to Marcell Dareus (2011) and Kawann to Cox/Brockers (2012). For example, just analysis, similarity, differences, etc. I want your own opinions, not quoting sources. Who do you guys think were better coming out the draft? And, do you guys think that Star and Short can have similar type of season like Dareus, Cox, and Brockers?
