    I was pissed about the 4th rounder whose agent told he'd probably
    go in the 6th and jones admitted is a backup for S. Lee.

    Having said that,these two more than make up for it.

    They did a great job of getting serious DLine help in this draft.

    We signed Coleman? Wow, seemed like they liked him. Love the competition we are setting up on the DL.

    Oh, he'll get playing time if he's good enough. Being a back-up for Sean Lee means you'll be on the field at some point in the season.

    If one of these contributes it would be great.

    Really warming up to the Coleman signing. Only played about 1 season and did pretty darned well. If nothing more adds to the depth at DT and hopefully keeps the Cowboys from needing to sign any street free agents.

    More on Davon Coleman...

    efensive end Davon Coleman definitely made his last season in Tempe count. Coleman put up career numbers, and he's hoping that an NFL team will take notice and call his name on draft day.

    Height: 6-foot-2

    Weight: 297 pounds

    College Career: Coleman first came to Arizona State in 2011 as a transfer from Fort Scott Community College. In his three seasons as a Sun Devil, Coleman had 166 tackles (31 tackles for loss) and 16 sacks. His most productive year was his senior season where he recorded a team-high 8.5 sacks.

    Coleman's increased production was influenced by the fact that he was playing alongside defensive tackle Will Sutton. The two-time Pac-12 defensive player of the year was often double teamed, which gave Coleman a chance to really shine.

    Perhaps, Sun Devil fans will best remember Coleman for his touchdown against Colorado. Early in the second quarter, Coleman lined up with the offense and caught a one-yard touchdown pass from quarter back Taylor Kelly. It was the only catch in Coleman's career at Arizona State, but it was certainly an important one.

    Strenghts: Coleman's biggest strength is his strength. At Arizona State's pro day on Mar. 7, Coleman bench pressed 225 pounds 35 times. That would have been tied for second at the Combine. He also has pretty decent speed as he ran a 5.08 40-yard dash during the pro day, but this time is of course unofficial. Coleman is a versatile player that has experience at both the defensive end and defensive tackle positions.

    Weaknesses: Coleman only had one really solid year as a starter in college. Despite his strength, there are questions about his explosiveness and ability to disengage from blocks, according to Dane Brugler of NFLDraftScout.com. He also missed Arizona State's bowl game against Texas Tech (his last collegiate game) for a violation of team policy.
    Outlook: Coleman may not be one of the premier defensive tackles of this class, but he could still be an effective player at the next level. He's a great athlete and a hard worker, who can excel if placed in the right defensive scheme.

    Round Projection: 7th-undrafted

    Prediction: I wouldn't be surprised if the Dallas Cowboys picked Coleman up as undrafted free agent. Coleman has already visited once with the Cowboys during the off season. The Cowboys are looking to bolster up its depth at defensive line after losing defensive end Demarcus Ware and defensive lineman Jason Hatcher.

    In the game footage that I've seen, they played him primarily at the 1-tech with Sutton at the 3-tech. If Coleman had played the 3-tech full time, I think he would have been a much higher rated prospect.

    He definitely appears to have the physical ability to play the 3-tech in the NFL. He has a lot of technique issues to work on, but he looks like an ideal developmental guy.

    I don't like him better than Ken Bishop who was my #2 pet cat in this draft.

    Coleman probably can play both the 1 and the 3. As a 1, he may give you more pass rush ability than the other 1's on the roster.

    I like the Bishop pick, he is thick and generates pass rush as a dt.

    This Coleman also looks like a player, maybe one or both add to the rotation and develop into something special down the line.

    Ok so basically he's not the nose guard type but that's ok because he took advantage of one on one opportunities.. Sounds intriguing and of course in the right program, wrinkles can get ironed out...

    Bishop has one of the most dominating highlight videos ever.

    In the footage that I watched, Coleman played the 1-tech with Sutton at the 3-tech. Coleman was getting a lot of the double teams. I've only watched 3 games so I can't say I'm an expert on it, but that's what I saw.

    Bishop looks like a poor man's D'ontari Poe. Hopefully he pans out.
