    For amusement I decided to look at Jacksonville DT and draft in general during Tuckers years as Def Coor.

    Tuckers DC history

    He arrived in Jacksonville in 2009 and was DC in Cleveland in 2008. In Cleveland they had a 34 defense so I am not including that info. For background I looked at his line before he got there and during.

    I tracked who they drafted and I have to tell you " they suck at the draft" Everyone is probably aware of the offense pick of "Blaine Gabbert", but not to very good at defense either. Guess thats why they have a new GM too, not attempting to say Tucker made the picks but I presume he had an input in the defensive picks made below. Keep in mind he came to Jacksonville in 2009. More interestingly is the type of players. Good news is DT happens to be one of the more successful picks even though they caught hell for Alualu in RD 1.

    I looked up some of them for scouting reports but not much there other than DT's. I will let you all find your own reports so you can come to your own unbiased opinions. Thats all I am saying,.

    Nice post brother. Terrance "Pot Roast" Knighton is here in Denver now and is a pretty fair NT. He's big as a house but like "Fridge" he moves pretty good for a guy his size. He should have been a keeper for Jax.

    I don't know how much influence he had. Del rio was a defensive guy and tucker didn't call the plays till 2011.

    I was shocked all the DE's and DT's they have taken and how little they have to show for it. Especially since they traded Knighton away. I hope your right and Mel didnt have much input, there picks are not exactly players that pop to mind.

    Jacksonvilles draft history is pretty bad, and they seem to not hold onto anyone worth holding onto. Any teams draft history that includes a punter in the 4th and 3rd round of the draft 5 years apart should be taken with a grain of salt.

    I'll try to find it, but I recall reading an article on Mel Tucker when he was hired and it mentioned how he was disgruntled with the situation in Jacksonville because he had little input on the players they were acquiring for the defense. For whatever that's worth.

    Hopefully he's more "gruntled" now with all of the new toys Emery got for him so far. :lol3:

    Moreso than most Bears fans are probably! I'm waiting to see something from him this year. Something positive this time.

    How could he not be :)

    ...even I'm gettin' "gruntled" over the defense picking up good guys, and the draft will be like Santa coming. Hope we find a few cool toys under the tree at Halas Hall from Santa Phil. Maybe even an offense guy as a stocking stuffer too.
