    Has he stepped on the scale since the Stay at Home order went into effect? Could be higher than reported, you know....

    That is a pretty encouraging write up. I still have DT as a big draft need and would be fine if we used any of our first three picks on a DT if the right player was available.

    Although I would guess the cowboys think they are fine there none with Poe, McCoy and some of their other depth guys, plus a guy like Crawford who can move inside.

    My concern is young talent there though. I think it is dangerous counting on a lot of older players there.

    It’s uncharacteristic for us to be this happy bout dt position. I hope Gregory is still in playing shape and can contribute this coming season. If not Crawford will be the starter.

    I like what we’ve done so far. I’d like for us to still sign Bennett and King, then get either CJ Henderson, Jerry Jeudy, or Xavier McKinney with our 1st.

    Does Helman mean "biggest" as in most name recognition? Ratliff was always the smallest NT in the league when he started for us and barely tipped the scales at 300lbs.

    i actually thought there would be more insight than that from Brooks as what wasn't mentioned in Brook's profile of Poe was his history of back injuries
    and surgeries -herniated disk issues.
    and who knows how much those back issues and excessive weight have played into his rush production over the years.

    and for a 350+ lb linemen, excessive weight as those players get older can be even more issues.
    i dunno why the signing took so long and maybe there was an initial impasse on whether Poe should be signed for a two year or 1 year deal.
    But now i do tend to wonder if maybe some of those " languages " had to do with incentives and clauses, that had to do with
    weight expectations, games played and production snaps.

    With Poe, you want to have quality depth, subs-and rotation relief coming along side of him as to not overextend his snaps - you want him fresh as possible
    in the 4th quarters, as the more he has play extensively, the more he seems to fatigue and wear, the lesser effect, and more invisible he becomes.
    Not surprisingly for typically guys that enormous size
    but when everything is in order. healthy and motivated, i do think he provides a bit more rush traits skill sets than the likes of pure 1 tech like
    guys ala Snack and Michael Pierce.
    The plus+ profile was pretty much on track in that he is an enormous blend of size-bulk, power and athleticism.

    Your same-sex stalking is even creepier than your normal stalking.

    Bottom line..

    Trystan Hill needs smelling salts and a swift kick.

    We will probably draft a DL high to help these 2 vet acquisitions be their most effective.

    Your points make alot of sense.

    He’s had our number as well so I’m sure he’s trying to fill/upgrade positions he knew he could exploit when he faced us

    i'm not gonna write Hill off because i really do believe Marinell's ways and method of preference and grooming hurt this team
    both on the field and in the Drafting war room. i want to see what the new current coaching staff can do with Hill and how
    he best be implemented in the game plan on game day active list.
    However i am not bypassing a highly regarded DT prospect just for the sake of Hill either. I'm still sticking to the value of my
    draft board.

    I would be super thrilled if a guy like Derrick Brown fell in the draft and they had Brown, Poe, McCoy and whatever they get from Hill/Crawford/Woods.

    Simple, fat guys appreciate fat guys.
    You know they saying, "don't trust a skinny cook"? Same goes for coaches picking defensive tackles, apparently.
    Lol.

    I think the success on this signing depends on how he will be used.
