How would you guys feel if we picked DT Dontari Poe [Memphis] the guy has a real Haloti Ngata feel to him?
44 Reps at 225
I know that it is not a need, but the guy is an absolute freak of nature and could be an incredibly powerful and disruptive force in the middle of the defense.
I don't see why we wouldn't want a guy that can get pressure up the middle...we didn't get it from anyone consistantly last year, lets draft a guy to do it.

I was thinking about that myself but thought it was more of a luxury pick. Hell, have him play part time NT and he can play alongside Paea and Okoye. Throw in a big name FA DE and that's some real scary spice.
Arguing on the internet is like winning the special olympics, even if you win your still messed up.
Restore the roar!
Janoris Jenkins has 4 kids.
How can you say that? Melton got 7 sacks last years in his first year as a starter. That was 3rd best among DT's and the best year we've had from a DT since Tommie Harris got 8 before his injury.

You never pass up a great lineman on either side of the ball.
I'm getting to that age where a lifetime warranty just doesn't mean as much to me anymore as an afternoon nap. Honey Badger Don't Care. Honey Badger Don't Give a Shit.
