Suh was far from dominate last year till the playoffs
it is more reasonable for rookie safeties to play well by playoff than dl.
that is when it matters.
if we cannot get there without him 100%, then it is irrelevant.
Maybe but you are wasting resources. If they do it right we'd draft DE high, multiple so we can trade them when they want QB money and just pay the best safety on the market. Cheaper to pay safeties then DE.
we draft at 59 this year...
He played one good game
There is a reason Suh is out there
He’s not what he once was and has lost his will to compete every week
Jernigan has a back issue. And according to Derek Gunn on Quick Slants, also has a neck issue. I couldn't find anything on the internet about the neck. But it's been about a week and a half since I looked.
Same thing applies. A 2nd round DE has greater value than a 2nd round Safety. Especially strong safety as they aren't likely to draft a replacement for woods.
My bet this is the main thing that would turn Marinelli off from a player - and it should.
a 2nd round safety is more likely to be able to contribute in the rookie year than a 2nd round dl...
Suh has underachieved his whole career.
I was pro Suh but you bring up a good point. We could probably find somebody in the draft to clog the middle. I think Suh's best years were left in Detroit.
it is not just clogging but pressure
Yeah, I know. But at thins point I think that's the best anyone is getting out of him. This is what gives me pause.
If this team was trying to actually win a championship, Garrett would not still be here.
Winning championships is not the highest priority in Dallas...………….this aint New England.
Only because you don't typically have as many safeties as DL. It's still way cheaper to buy a better safety than DL and that's my point. Pay the safety and draft the DL. Any rookie we get probably isn't starting.
dbs r contributing pretty well at the end of the rookie season and it worked for 2017.
the end of the rookie year is when it matters as the team always has vet bodies for the same positions in the regular season.
dls generating do not contribute much in rookie year
Which is why we always need to be drafting and developing the positions who want mega dollars. Taco wasn't drafted because he was a stud year 1, but for what he might turn into by year 3-4.
that is for sure, but it does not take away from gregory and dlaw situations, as well as the 'appaarent' lack of progress for taco last season.
Their failure is investing enough at this position. Can't draft Randy and assume he will work out. Their next investment was taco who has yet to breakout as a guy who can wreck OL. Because of this they must sign DLaw and still draft a guy prefer in round 1 so we get 5 years. And continue to draft guys so you don't have to pay them big bucks when their contract is up. As much as I like DLaw I don't feel confident he will play 5 years at a high level. Big contracts meaning 20+ million a year for guys not playing QB is very very risky.
