Thread: rank these DTs

  1. #21
    Well the pattern to date has been to run Joseph as a 2 or 3 tech and Canty (or Bernard/Kuhn) as a 1 or 2 tech.

    If we're replacing Canty with this draft, presumably we'd go that route. However I'd say the only DT we'd definitely stay away from is a pure 0 tech (your 3-4 NT).

    The differences between a 1, 2 and 3 tech DT are more about defensive alignment than player specialization (some notable historical exceptions aside).

    I would guess that most NFL teams will see the following as pure 0 tech prospects:

    1) Star Lotulelei (although he can probably play any DT position due to his athleticism)
    2) Jesse Williams (has moved from DE to 0 tech ... doubt he goes back)
    3) Jonathan Hankins (doesn't have the motor for a 3-tech)
    4) John Jenkins (the DC who doesn't play this guy as a NT should be fired)

    Sheldon Richardson and Shariff Floyd would be my top prospects in that list (assuming Star is off the board of course).

    There's a better than even shot that both of those guys are off the boards with our first pick, so I'm thinking CB in the first and someone like Kwann Short in the second or Sylvester Williams in the 3rd.

    Looking at the guys listed. I don't see Richardson falling to the Giants nor am I really high on him. He is undersized and does not have the power to get thru NFL sized Lineman. Floyd who is a stud I also don't think will make it to the Giants at 19. But he is a better DT than Richardson IMO. Then you are left with Williams,Sly,Jenkins,Short and Hankins.

    I think the Giants need versatility in the interior of the D line. The only 2 guys who can bring that versatility is Jesse Williams and Johnathan Hankins. Now I am not real high on Hankins but I do believe he can become a force in the NFL. Williams I think could be perfect especially since the Giants were god awful at stopping the run at the point of attack which is the line. Jenkins from Georgia could work if the Giants can get him adapted to a 4-3 system. Short is a def possibility has the power good size and motor. Sly from North Carolina im not sold on.

Who is quicker,better agility,better closing speed its Floyd. Also u have to remember that Floyd is only 20 while Short is 24. Im not saying Floyd is a perfect prospect he has holes. Id like to see him finish some more of the plays he impacts. He has to play lower it hurts him when trying to play the run
    I believe nyc sportz fan was right on. Look at the below film, Short has the same closing speed, i mean the guy stopped denard robinson one of the faster QB's in football. Age and Potential Floyd has that advantage, but Production "agility,better closing speed". I mean these guys are both monsters, but i beleive Floyd is even bigger so i doubt he is the more athletic of the two. Floyd to me is in the Sylvester Williams UNC class. Similar Size, technique with Floyds closing speed slightly better, but not much production to show for it.

    I think its pretty evident Floyd is more athletic. I dont even think thats debatable. Lets think about it if Short was more athletic than Floyd why wouldnt Short be the 1 being discussed in the Top 10. I think Shorts a good player. More stout against the run and has a well rounded game

    Wouldnt get much in terms of pass rush. Would be beastly against the run

    Why would a cap-strapped team that needs a DT bypass the position in a draft year that is deep in the position?
