  • Akiem Hicks (DT)

    6th round project player but with us needing depth on the Dline, and this guy having a year or two to mature, he could very well be a total monster.

    6'5, 320 and pure athletic talent.

    What would you think of this pick if we waited until the 6th round on a DT?
    I don't always root for the Cowboys but when I do I wear my pink Jessica Simpson edition Romo jersey. (yes I lost a bet)

          That's what I was going to say. Can't be that bad if his name rhymes with Nicks lol.

            Yeah I don't know which is better...Drafting Akiem Hicks or Darrell Scott.

            Coaches confusion for $500 Alex.

              Its interesting if you look at some of the recent draft classes, and the most productive pass rushing DTs, what rounds they were drafted in.

              Geno Atkins - 7.5 sacks - 4th round
              Karl Klug - 7 sacks - 5th round
              Henry Melton - 7 sacks - 4th round


              The other interesting thing, two of those guys, Klug and Melton came out as DEs. Melton was 269 at the combine, Klug was 275.

              So IMO, if the giants are looking for a pass rushing DT, have to also look at those tweener size DEs, who may not be fast enough to be successful DEs, but can add weight and move inside.

              Guys like Malik Jackson, Trevor Guyton, Brett Roy, etc. are all interesting conversion guys

                yea some [size font="7"]pass[/size] rushing defensive tackles that are great tend to have short arms and/or slightly undersized (jay alford, marvin austin, etc) so that causes them to slip in the draft

                  I'd also argue Billy Winn as well

                      Not a chance.




                      Having Akiem Hicks and Hakeem Nicks on the same team would tear a hole in the universe.

                      Admit nothing. Deny everything. Make counter accusations.

                        So if we draft him we're dividing by zero?

                          The shear weight of the cunfusion would create an inplosion and the black hole created would be so dense that it would be unsustainable by the fabric of the universe.




                          And the calamitous tear would be ensured.

                            Gruden would probably kill himself during a broadcast.

                            Though that may well be an argument to draft him.
