  • DT in the 1st round

    Was thinking this before Canty got cut, now it seems even more possible. I think we need a DT in the first 2 rounds or in FA because we're very thin at that position right now.

    What do you guys think?

    It was possible then, and its possible now.. I'm a Kawaan Short guy myself.. Big enough and stout enough to stop the run, but also pressures the QB and makes plays in backfield and has a knack for blocking kicks...

      I think we need an OT first round still, but DT should definitely come in the 2nd round

            If they resign Beatty or take another OT in FA, OT early in the draft isnt that likely. You dont take an OT top 20 to be a right tackle. Unless you have a crap QB and need to rely 100% on the running game.

              I'd be happy with O-line, but we really need to do something about our DT's for the sake of stuffing the run, especially when you consider our LB situation.

              Imagine another beast next to Linval, that would form a wall.

                I think having a solid O-line is important in the passing game even moreso than the running game. If we can just have the 5 OL be good enough to handle pass protection by themselves (maybe with TE help vs blitzes), Eli could pick apart any defense just using Jernigan and Barden... This year's "yes we're actually taking this game seriously" pro bowl showed me what Eli can do with time in the pocket. That should be the #1 priority on offense is giving Eli time in the pocket...

                  You dont need to go first round to find a guy to play RT, run or pass. You just dont. You find those guys in the mid rounds or in FA.

                  First round is for left tackles. Right tackles if you have no passing game.

                      I think so, but who is our RB?

                        do you want another year of the LDE basically having a free path to Eli on every play?

                            No, but you dont have to take a guy at 19 overall in the draft to find a RT. You can find those guys later.
