    A " luxury " in paper but if Tuck goes down this year or his nagging injuries come back then it would not be a luxury. And if someone is available and/or BPA is at reach then it would be an intelligent move. i don't think Tuck is coming back in 14, Nicks contract is up and probably Cruz too if tendered. That been said with Beatty and Boothe not signed OL is top priority IMO.

    Very athletic player but I don't know if his " lack " of size is going to be a problem playing in the NFL. In the end if it all comes down to a DT in the 1st round I will jump in the air if big Jonhathan Hankins is available and gets drafted by the Giants.

    Any time it's not a strength, it's a need.

    Why not? 6ft 4in 270lbs, who prooved what kinda pass rusher he could possibly be with his preseason last yr.. Judging from his body type, looks to be in great shape.. I don't see why he cant be a 7-12 sack guy, given the reps...

    I won"t go as far to say that DE is our biggest need bro, but will say it stopped being a strength.

    Against 3rd teamers. The OT play is dreadful in that video .Not just sacks either but consistently force pressure. Physically he isnt very explosive. Nowhere near the level of burst of an elite edge rusher. He would have to improve leaps and bounds quickness wise over this off season.Its fine if they want to develop him but I think they are crazy if they are counting on him for Osi production. Im not talking low level Osi production because that isnt helpful. This team needs the pass rushers to get home

    Its a risk , but they see him in practice all the time, and i'm sure have a idea what to expect outta him and what he can or can't accomplish.. Regardless of the comp last preseason, those were guys right on the edge of NFL careers, and he was outter worldly... Hes got talent, and the size to help against the run as well.. Im interested in seeing him this yr...

    Especially when our defensive philosophy depends on getting a consistent pass rush. No pass rush, no defense
