I believe that Canty, Linval, and Austin are the only DTs we have inked for next season. 2 of them are badass DTs and deserve to be starting, Austin on the other hand hasnt played in a game in 2years so it would be great for him to pick up where he left off, but lets be real...
That being said, where do we look at a DT in the draft??
Ive read up and seen some footage of Derek Wolfe from Cincy dude KILLED it last season with 21.5 TFLs and 9.5 sacks, are some of the big name DTs REALLY worth the higher spot when we can get this guy in the 4th or 5th
Strengths: Has a tall, solid frame with adequate length and has
done a nice job losing the bad weight and firming his body. Has a quick
first step with fluid movements off the ball. A natural bender, staying
low and using leverage to force his way into the backfield. Highly
competitive and fierce, showing relentless effort to the pocket with a
nonstop motor. Has very good awareness, keeping his head on a swivel
with a good feel to quickly locate and react to the play. Tough as nails
with a physical attitude and often attracts double-teams. An extremely
hard worker in the weight room and doesn?t let up in practice. Versatile
in college, lining up in several different spots, including moving to
nose tackle over the center on third downs. Stayed durable over his
career, starting the final 38 games of his collegiate career. Was
productive at Cincinnati, especially as a senior when he led the
conference in tackles for loss (21.5) and had career-highs in tackles
(70) and sacks (9.5).
Negatives: Only average lower-body strength and
struggles to anchor at the point of attack. Bit of a defensive
end/defensive tackle ?tweener who struggles in traffic with multiple
blockers, not always using his limbs effectively to disengage. Will
allow his body to get too upright at times and needs to consistently
keep his pad level down to be effective. Not a quick-twitch player and
struggles to quickly change directions with some body stiffness. Has
streaky hand placement and usage, abandoning his technique. Lacks a
natural position and there will be some concerns as to where he will fit
best at the next level.
