    The focus of the article is actually Losman, but the first bullet item was the thing I thought to be interesting:

    When you start seeing things like this, you know the draft is getting closer ;).

    If you saw him play in the bowl game, I am not so sure you would say he is a steal at 18...but maybe his skills translate to NT in the NFL a bit better.

    Nevertheless, how does a NT not fit into your cover 2 scheme. Last I checked they don't cover anybody?

    I like Justice, but man that's early for him to go.

    Actually, if you watched that Bowl Game, Oregon shut down the Oklahoma RB's for most of the game. Ngata is money. I see him play every weekend, and he's a beast. Nice guy too. If he's there at 18, wouldnt mindhim at all.

    I've got a feeling that he slides.

    Buffalo really can't go wrong as long as like their 1st 5 picks weigh 300 pounds or more. Both their lines stink. Maybe they like Bunkley better- they do play a 4-3.

    honestly ive been hearing over and over they dont want the fat DT's they are trying to switch towards having two pass rushing dt types.

    Ngata could be described as a player that gets bored sometimes. I watch him, and he'll dominate for 2 or 3 plays. Then he'll sort of play patty-cake with the 3 offensive linemen that are triple-teaming him on the next play. His only downside is the occasional lack of motor. He has the skills of an elite DT in the NFL.

    i was hoping that "Bill's" was referring to Bill Parcells not Buffalo because I was hoping I was going to read about how we weren't interested in a 345 pound first round career-ending knee injury waiting to happen...again.

    SittingBull...dude your mock draft stinks..no offense but other than Carpenter...there isn't a potential starter in there.

    Ngata would be a great pick for us, finally an elite NT. Like someone said, the only bad thing, besides the injury he had a long time ago, is thta sometimes when hes like triple or quadruple teamed he gets a bit lazy, but I would really love to have him.

    I think the knee injury concerns are quite valid, his bad one wasn't that long ago and he injured a knee again in the bowl game. Plus, I saw nothing in his play to think he's worth a first round pick.
    We can find short, fat guys on day 2 to do the same job. We need an impact player with first round picks, not a fat, backup, injury-prone, blocker-magnet. If we wanted someone like that, we could've gotten Sam Adams or Grady Jackson this offseason for about 2 mil, probably cheaper than a first round pick. Sure only a stop gap, but proven and effective.

    I don't know how true this is, but I remember reading in an article awhile back that Ngata only has 10% Bf. I highly doubt that was true, but if it is even close to that it would be incredible for his size.
