    We need a DT & LB

    In my eyes it's the number one need. No not a quick agile Canty/ Austin guy that is a speed and power combination. I want a Keith Hamilton/ Gilbert Brown, Pat Kennedy run stuffer. A guy that can bow up running plays, take on double teams, and is immovable at the point of attack. I want Austin to be that guy but I'm skeptical, especially after the ACL.


    After that we need a MLB. I have DT over LB because they take on the blockers so the LBs can go make plays.

    Somebody says we are going to pick around 20th. How's that possible? It seems kind of early.
    Because of all of the effort and examination being poured into these predictions, the draft is a robust market that, in the aggregate, does a good job of sorting prospects from top to bottom.1 Yet despite so many people trying to “beat the market,” no single actor can do it consistently. Abnormal returns are likely due to luck, not skill. But that hasn’t stopped NFL executives from behaving with the confidence of traders.

    I'd love a Devon Still. he would be great in our defense, a nice option at 3T. I think we will prioritize DT this offseason.

    Oh, and Austin had a pec injury not an ACL.

    I think CB is an even bigger need. Webster is good but getting older, I think Prince will be solid, and that is about it. Ross is a free agent, and I hope he plays well in the playoffs, but he is not the answer. TT tore the same ACL twice. Not a good sign of him being able to be any good again.

    Marvin Austin still may be good

    and as Gmen said, it was a Pec, not acl.

    Dumervil played well this year after hurting his pec last year
