    Dontari Poe just ran a 4.87 unofficial at 346 pounds... that's unbelievable.

    Please see my "pet" player thread regarding Poe from months ago, lol.

    This guy is light years a better athlete than Ta'amu.

    I have never really seen this guy play-how is the motor?? If it's good...this guy could be Ngata type. That size, speed, strength ratio is elite.

    This guy doesnt even look fat or out of shape at almost 3 and a half bills. Really well put together.

    You mean he's not just "a fat guy" that people want at NT?

    He wont be a Cowboy because they go O Line or pass rush 1st round. Martin or Chapman for NT would make us all happy IMO.

    He ran another sub 5. Where is this guy projected to go? Or I guess, was projected to go.

    The latest that I saw he was projected to go around 24th pick or so or a bit higher to end of Round 1.

    He was a mid first to mid 2nd, probably still in that range.

    I was wondering if any of thesw NTs would work their way into the discussion at 14.

    I think it's incredibly unlikely they will take a NT at 14. Not with the way they talk about Ratliff every year. I mean he makes pro bowls right?

    I have to think Poe could be used like Ngata on the outside as well.

    Yeah I think its unlikely too. But I would love it if they would take a monster NT. I just wasn't sure if any of this class was worth it. It's something to talk about now.

    1.)Dontari Poe
    2.)Jared Crick
    2.)OG, C, or CB
    3.)Bruce Irvin

    I'm not sure trading down would work anymore with Poe, not after watching him this morning. That was truly impressive.

    idk if i would risk trading down. I might be tempted to just take him at 14 if we really want him. Trading down is not really a guarantee he will be were we dropped down to.

    But man 6'4 346 , 44 bench, 29.5 inch vert at that weight:eek: , running a 4.87:eek:

    were did the ravens draft ngata (sp)? if we want Poe just take him at 14 and do not get cute. Then we can kick ratliff to DE and that would be a major passrush upgrade on the d-line. Than have hatcher and lissy (who looked impressive) fight it out on the other side, but also keep rotating guys to keep them fresh.
    We need a rock in the middle (idk if poe at his hight 6'4 can do it but i will give him a chance before settling him in at end (which i think he can play also in the 3-4).
