He ranks 2-4 as a prospect all time.  I have him below Suh and Dareus before McCoy and Dorsey.

Hard to say considering I've only seen his college film. So I think his style is more like Nagta or Suh for his potential brute strength may not be as strong as Nagta or as quick as suh. Brockers,McCoy are more athletic I think. Now on potential moving forward I think his impact could be better then any of these DTs simply because of are DE which get all of the attention already. Look at all of these players & the only team with really good DE's would be Brockers on on the Rams he has 2 very good DE'S. Because of that it will be hard to double Star or Short.

I don't see the hype with Floyd. He had an 'ok' season but to jump up to the Top 5 overnight was asinine. Shariff was bullied at times by bigger and stronger Guards and Centers because of his short arms. Honestly, I think he'd thrive as a DE in a 3-4 better than a UT in a 4-3.

Anyone think we should have taken Big Jonathan Hankins of OSU over Kawann Short? I love Short very much, but I think Hankins may turn out to be a very productive player. Sure Hankins is one of those true NT, so some of yall may wonder why Hankins when we already took Star but lets remember Star has the ability to play the 3 tech. Also, Hankins was considered as the better pass rusher than Star. Just something that have been running through my mind since the draft.

I would have loved to grab big hank but, him and star play the same position and from the reports the guy might only be a 2 down player.

Anyone think we should have traded you for a Saint fan?

    • Looks like our DE depth is developing nicely.  Let's see his swim move--no wait--if he starts drowning, we'll never get him back in the boat. I still say they were a bit upset with him last season.  Remember the benching during the game following the altercationwith the coach?  Some people never recover fully from a knee injury, especially if they lack the discipline to rehab properly.  I wounder if that is the case? Seriously--he is a TE.
    • http://www.msn.com/en-us/money/companies/carrier-plant-where-trump-saved-jobs-plans-layoffs/ar-BBBsNjX?li=BBmkt5R&ocid=spartandhp A plant where jobs were purportedly saved by Donald Trump ahead of his inauguration is set to make at least 600 staff cuts, many before Christmas. Carrier had opted in December 2016 not to move a number of jobs to Mexico from its Indianapolis furnace factory, following a visit to the plant by Trump. The president claimed he had convinced Carrier to retain 1,100 jobs in Indianapolis rather than outsourcing them in Mexico. And of those 1,100 jobs Trump spoke of, 300 had reportedly never been threatened with a move to Mexico—meaning a total of 800 jobs had been saved. But the company has since announced that at least 600 employees at the factory will still be laid off, with the final 290 job cuts coming just ahead of Christmas. In a filing seen by CNN, the company announced it would be making an initial 338 job cuts in July, four in October and a further 290 jobs on December 22, just three days before Christmas. During a press conference at Carrier, Trump said: “that big, big beautiful plant behind us… will be even more beautiful in about seven months from now. They're so happy. They're going to have a great Christmas. That's most important. He added: “And that these companies aren't going to be leaving anymore. They're not going to be taking people's hearts out. They're not going to be announcing, like they did at Carrier, that they're closing up and they're moving to Mexico, over 1,100 jobs. “And by the way, that number is going to go up very substantially as they expand this area, this plant. So the 1,100 is going to be a minimum number,” he said. The plant said at the time the number of jobs saved was closer to 800, but explained it would be replacing some of the jobs that were saved with an automated system in order to save money, although CEO Greg Hayes did say there would be less money saved by the company in doing so than if they moved production to Mexico. Carrier did not immediately respond to Newsweek’s request for comment. ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- I'm thinking of another person I'd like to see get laid off, or fired.
    • Shep, Curtis Samuel, maybe Charles Johnson--Funchess in year 3--that could be solid.  Move KB to TE (or keep him away from the Krispy Kremes) and this could be a special group.
