    +1

    But I suspect it will be the highest impact defensive player available.

    I would prefer it be a DT but if Ha Ha or a total shutdown CB was available, take him!

    Any DB, ILB or DL will be fine. until FA happens I'm perferring a ILB at 14 b/c the draft seems thinnest there, but any DB or DL will make me just as happy.

    I always thought that building off a foundation of a strong and deep DL was the best way to go. The ability to rush/hurry/knock down the passer as well as stop the running game due to line play covers a multitude of weaknesses in the D backfield.

    As awful as our defense performed, I bed the addition of a couple of stud-bolt DTs (and improved positional coaching) could make a world of difference.

    Da, I don't disagree wthat theory, for the OL also; but you have to look at the depth of each position. DT/DE capable of starting and playing at high level can be had in the 2nd and 3rd, MLB cannot. So why not try and get 2 or 3 high quality starters instead of just 2?
    Again we'll have to see what they do in FA, sign 3-4 guys in the DL, then all of a sudden it's all back 7, sign 3-4 DB's, and all of a sudden it's all front 7, sign a couple MLB's and then you have stictly front 4 and back 4.

    I agree, just like with the offense it all starts with the defensive line. I don't care if Butkus is playing MLB or any one of us is, with our DL play last year it wouldn't have mattered. A good DL will elevate the play of the whole unit and we have too many holes to plug them all. We will have to take chances on current players somewhere and id take that chance on Bostic over Melton or Collins.

    Bottom line: as of now id be royally pissed if we passed on Jerrigan
