    Unfortunately it does matter. The skinny on Tyler is that scouts don't agree on how good he is. If he were a consensus first rounder then maybe you take a flyer at him in the first. But I've seen him bounced from first to fourth round in value and he has those dreaded character issues. The War Room values him the highest and ignores the character flaws. It's the most optimistic assessment of Tyler anywhere (this, from the bunch who valued Kris Jenkins as a 7th rounder, and who currently place Brady Quinn in the middle second round).

    So I'd say this: my program has drafted him from time to time but these days I just usually block him. I tag him as 'character' and set any Dallas draft of a DT to !character and just avoid touching him.

    There are enough good players in any draft without character issues that the Boys don't NEED to be bringing in problem children...

    I believe either DeMarcus Tyler or Ian Scott would be in place to take Jason "Fergi" spot.

    I'm not defending DeMarcus Tyler as a pass rusher, but I'm pretty sure there are plenty of college DTs who played 48 games who registered less than 10 sacks, who became good NFL players. Sometimes players just don't physically mature untill their senior season.
