    Scouting reports say "NFL Comparison: Martellus Bennett" -- that would have put people here off a cliff

    Would have been thrilled if he was even half the blocker Bennett was, to get him in the 7th.

    Glad no one bit though, save the picks next year.

    Hey how about some more OL/DL?

    I heard we tried to get back in the draft to get Magee the LBer we signed.

    I thought it was strange that we didn't grab more OL --but we do have Arkin, Leary, Weems, and Kowalski all needing playing time in TC and preseason to get better (or get gone). Add Parnell to that list as well-- he'll be on the team but he really needs playing time. I also suspect that we might get one of the UFA tackles signed

    I thought we should have gone DL in round 2 or 3 as well as one in the later rounds. I don't think we're as "stocked" at DL as we believe.

    What would have REALLY sent us all over the cliff is if Garrett had said in the presser "he really reminds us of Martellus Bennett."

    Stocked, no. But I expect it just didn't fall the way we wanted it. I fully expect we get one of those Bear UDFAs in soon to give some depth. I also think we see Kyle Wilbur as a guy who is just as good as any late round DL we could have taken

    Damn, missed out on the chance to run the fabled 4 TE set.

    Kiffin's DLs have always been about being small and getting to the QB. That makes him a better fit there.

    The system is admittedly weaker against the run, but the NFL of the last 20 or so years has been one where your pass D is far more important that your run D.

    Yah. He's going to be moved to DE this year. We'll see how he does.

    Well, Rutgers recruited him as QB. Can always put our own personal little spin on the Wildcat lol

    .....most us DON'T believe that. I can't fathom the fact they didn't draft at least one developmental DT...mind boggling.:bang2:

    Brandon McGee, Ariz. St. OLB/UDFA signing was reportedly told we tried to draft up for him too in the 7th.

    There were probably a lot of UDFAs we chased telling them we would have drafted them but we didn't have a pick.

    I wish we signed Mike Bennett, martys brother and he was a free agent DE.

    He has a bad shoulder and is expected to miss a significant amount of time.

    I agree, but in a division with NY and Washington, you'd better stop the run because Coughlin and Shannahan will run it more than anyone in the league if they can.
