    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)

    Re: Akiem Hicks (DT)

    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
