    Can someone give a list of guys to watch?


    I don't know who are the top DL this year outside of Clowney. I saw a kid at Michigan who looked really good. Actually 2. # 57 and 76 and I have no idea if they are highly rated prospects.

    Some of the other top names:

    Anthony Barr - UCLA
    Dominique Easley - Florida
    Louis Nix - Notre Dame
    Anthony Johnson - LSU
    Ra'Shede Hageman - Minnesota
    Khalil Mack - Buffalo
    Will Sutton - Arizona State
    Stephon Tuitt - Notre Dame
    Jackson Jeffcoat - Texas
    Daniel McCullers - Tennessee

    Not all of these guys are good fits for a 4-3 or for Monte's system in particular.

    If your expectation is Dallas goes on to have a good season and is picking later in round 1 i would focus on Mack as someone who would be available in the bottom half of round 1 as a 4-3 end. Johnson & Hageman are late 1 DT's.

    Kareem Martin UNC. Matter of fact watch UNC whole DL and OL. James Hurst OT handled Clowney pretty good.

    I'm just not feeling Martin AT ALL. In this D, we need DE's that can GET AFTER THE QB!!!!!!!!!!!!! Martin just seems like JAG. Give me a Trent Murphy, Chris Smith (Arkansas), Anthony Barr, Khalil Mack (Buffalo), Morgan Breslin, George Uko, Will Sutton................theses are guys that have produced and aren't just earning a draft grade on potential alone.

    That's fine I won't tell you that your wrong cause those guys you listed are like you said. I feel UNC has put proven talent in the pros from the DL. Quinn is a beast, Coples and Austin will come among. Sly Williams will show up big as well, I an confident that Martin can be that guy and with Marinelli the sky is the limit. Really wish Paige-Moss wasn't big headed because he was talented aswell
