And Jernigaen was a stud against all levels of competition.
Any dline we draft at our spot won't be a part-timer, I can almost guarantee. We need to draft dline early and often.
true, unfortuneatley I doubt he will be on the board when Dallas picks. Aaron Donald would be the next DT in line (at least in my view) I think that would be a decent pick I will say I'm leery on that because at 6'00 288lbs for DT is on the small size. Again as far as Clinton Dix I would not have an issue with his selection.
I agree on the size aspect. I think most lines of thinking have DT in either the 4-3 or 3-4 at least 300 lb range. It's just too much of a beating going up against 330+ olinemen play after play. I would have a real problem with Dix that high. I don't agree their is enough talent difference to justify the pick. That is too say; I think if we upgrade our rush enough, the failing of safety will be minimized.
We definitely need to draft DL and hopefully multiple DL.
All that said no DL should play more than 75% of the snaps for us next year much less any rookie.
The 4-3 model is based upon fresh attacking DL.
Donald would be a great fir for us playing about 60% of the snaps.
Any more would be dumb use of the player as a rookie.
Part of why guys get injured is playing them too much.
Dallas needs to have a full rotation of 8/9 DL.
I just think Aaron Donald is a little too light in the pants at 288
No way I take a safety mid first round unless he's one of those do-everything-can even cover a WR types.
I don't know. I'd love to have a ball hawking FS. I realize you need the front seven to disrupt the passing game first so that your FS can make plays, but it's all about opportunity, IMO. If the FS is there and the DL isn't, take him.
I agree....if the guy is a ball hawking FS, to me he is the "do everything" safety. I don't think there's one of those elite safeties in this year's draft. Just because we need one, I wouldn't draft a FS who can play zone but struggles in man coverage. If the coaches see a stud free safety in the mold of Ed Reed or Earl Thomas, grab him. If not, I don't want to see a pick at 16 used on a safety with holes in his game.
