I know a lot of people convinced themselves that defensive line was a position of dire need for this draft. Personally I wouldn't have minded if we came away with Carrandine, Okafar, or Moore. That being said we've put a lot into this defensive line already. We drafted Tyrone Crawford in the 3rd round last year, and we drafted Kyle Wilber in the 4th round last year. Crawford will move inside, and perhaps also work outside at the left end position. Wilber will be asked to increase his weight and work on that right side behind Ware. People also seem to forget about Hatcher and Lissemore. The team is really high on Lissemore, and he is a player who's role will continue to expand. Hatcher combined with Ratliff should be a great interior match. When both are healthy they play really well. We're running a tampa 2. The focus on the line isn't to stuff the run, rather it's to get after the quarterback. You want 4 pass rushing linemen there. And there aren't many defensive tackles who can do that. The majority of complainers here wanted us to spend a high pick on a guy who would end up just being a space eater and not much of a pass rusher. Might as well have kept Spears if you wanted that. This is what we're looking at, and it certainly will be a strength given the emphasis on pass rushing, rather than dropping back into coverage, or focusing on the run. Left Defensive End - Anthony Spencer > Tyrone Crawford Left Defensive Tackle - Jay Ratliff > Sean Lissemore > Rob Calloway Right Defensive Tackle - Jason Hatcher > Tyrone Crawford > Brian Price > Ben Bass Right Defensive End - DeMarcus Ware > Kyle Wilber > Alex Albright You might ask about replacing Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Ware. At 18 was there a player you think that could have done this? Was there someone at 31? The reality is that finding a quality defensive end was going to prove more difficult, and the idea that we needed to take someone who was just going to be a back up, doesn't really cut mustard when we just drafted Crawford and Wilber.
