    Can't tell if you mean explode from excitement, or explode from disgust.

    Either. For me I'd be happy. If we could solidfiy the DL for years that would be a huge step in helping the bottom line. It all starts up front. Dominate the line everyone else's job is made easier. Do I sound like Risen?

    I'm 100% in agreement. It all starts with the D line. I feel like that's the foundation of the defense and you can't have too many solid players to rotate in there.

    This is a guy they can bring in cheaply, and cut if younger players look competent. Crawford, Mincey, Selvie + a draft pick and/or undrafted players sounds like a recipe for disaster. Not that Wootton give much more confidence, but it makes more sense to me.

    I'm with you and I was a pro-Ayers guy until recently. Ayers had exactly seven sacks in three years before this last year when he had 5.5. Wooton had seven sacks in one season prior to last and he can't rush the passer???? I like his upside better than Ayers and think going back to playing end would do him wonders, guy is too light to play tackle. He can challenge Selvie or maybe even start over him with a good camp.

    I'm pretty confident Marinelli knows something we don't about him. He at least would have been brought into town.

    I would've liked him for depth but I heard he was a terrible pass rusher so it's no big deal. I prefer Carrington. I wish we would bring him in for a visit. He could platoon with a rookie or Crawford(depending on where he plays) or be a backup. Not much left out there, he's been named as a potential value/bargain by several outlets.

    I love the hell out of your Mock! Not sure if Donald will be there but who knows, love Jimmy and Davis in those rounds, that would be great for us.

    This team needs to finally draft quality defensive lineman including pass rush players that can be found deep in this draft.

    The overpay scenario and clinging to former older talent which has caused performance and cap problematics could have been avoided if this were addressed progressively in the draft.

    I have no problem with adding DL role players outside of Melton (cap friendly this year) but apparently Wooten was not on their radar.

    They have drafted some quality OL the several years and it has made a huge difference ( though a G and RT prospect or two could still help).

    They may still add some free agent pieces as the prices continue to drop but I doubt it will be anything significant.

    I can live with this fact if they actually address the DL and corresponding pass rush as much as possible in this years draft.

    They may still need to add more defense next year through free agency and the draft to push deeper but at least a foundation can be laid this off season.

    Glad Wooton's not headed to Dallas.

    There was some interest there. Maybe they were waiting for his price to go down. I'm not sure what made them decide to lock up Mincey over Wootton, though. Maybe injury?
