    If Nagota doesn't come out early, I don't think we'll be going for a DT in the draft. Probably FA since it's such a poor DT class. Of the DE's though, I think Matt Roth would definetly be worth a 20th. Maybe higher, since he's obviously a Parcells type of player.
    The best info I could get on him was at NFL Countdown.

    Matt Roth

    Official Bio
    College: Iowa Height: 6-4
    Position: Defensive End Weight: 270
    Class: Senior 40-Yard: 4.75
    Strengths: Has a motor that never stops...Very quick with a great burst...Intense player...Will hold his own against the run...Very strong...Playmaker with great instincts on the defensive line.
    Weaknesses: Doesn't have a wide array of pass rush moves...Is in trouble if the offensive lineman gets locked on...Technique is lacking at times...Will let his emotions get the best of him...Lacks elite speed and isn't a top athlete.
    Notes: Former linebacker who just moved to end in 2002...Overachiever who gets the most out of his talent...May not have every physical tool you look for but his motor more than makes up for it.

    Anybody got an opinion on this guy? Anyone seen him play? Could he play in a 3-4?

    I'm pretty sure Ngata isn't going to come out.

    Keep your fingers crossed.
