    2 guys like him at DT and you'd never get a sack. Weight doesn't matter, not even for stopping the run. First step and length are infinitely more valuable than weight.

    The Packers got run over b/c their LBers are terrible and they couldn't get penetration. It had nothing to do with size.

    Future, I take it you haven’t t realized yet that a good running scheme can actually take advantage of penetrating defenses. That’s exactly how the Rams gashed Dallas last year - used their quickness against them. And, 2 penetrating DT’s can also be taken advantage of if they’re not making plays in the backfield. But, creating a wall in the middle only lets you run outside, which should make life easier for the back 7 if they’re fast and can tackle.

    Sure it can. But you can always adjust the defensive scheme to...not penetrate. I'd rather have the option. But the idea of "creating a wall in the middle" is nonexistent. You only do that by throwing bodies in gaps.

    Love the Hamilton pick, as well Hopkins.
    Don't know much about the others.
