    This might be my favorite one I've seen so far. Quarles and Ferguson would give us 1 if not 2 rotational players at both DT positions.

    valid point, but most think that De La Puenta will get a long term deal next year after Garza is off the books, guess many are making a HUGE assumption there.

    No reason for us to do that. Tice will probably be available again and we can grab him!

    I have come to the conclusion taking a DT in rd 1 limits what you can do in rd 2 and 3. Safety is tough and you are gambling even in rd 2, to many teams need them. I have come to conclude that rd 2 may have a S but recent mocks have both Buchannon and ward gone well before we pick. If we are lucky a CB may fall in rd 2 if we take a S in rd 1 providing one is avail. If not there is still DT value in Quarles and Sutton, and Emery may take a flier on Easley although his ACL injuries to both knees personally scares me. I just keep getting more starters when I go S or CB in rd 1. I believe the QB's taken or lack thereof and Detroit going CB or S will probably impact what we do.

    I did several drafts and both S are gone, primarily Detroit and the Rams. If they take the S recent mocks have shown Ward and Buchannon going in late rd 1 which is a reach but with so many teams wanting S it could happen. I would not like it but I could see us reaching for a Ward or Buchannon in rd 1. Sutton or Quarles will be there in rd 3 and rd 2 we can look at ILB or CB depending who is there and come back to DT. I will be surprised if we take a DT in RD 1 just because we can get one later and finding a ILB, RB, and CB is much easier in first 2 rounds. I know it comes down to Phil and his values but I see DT in RD 3 more than RD 1

    BSB, been saying this for awhile, the depth in this draft is at DL, and S/CB while deep are not NEAR as deep as DT, I like the S's/CB/s in the 2nd/3rd but I REALLY like the DT's that are there. If you are looking at wanting 2-3 starters out of this draft you need to get the DB's taken early.

    The high-quality DT talent is definitely deeper in this draft than at safety/CB. There are going to be some really solid DT's in round three, and some decent ones beyond that. The safeties and CB's left at that point are really nothing special.

    It's good to know that either I'm not crazy, or I'm not lonely in the loony bin :)

    LOL. I agree. I was all about grabbing a DT at #14 originally, but when you go through the mock drafts you realize there is exceptional quality DT talent available this year as late as round 3. And pretty decent talent beyond that. But the safety and CB talent in those rounds is a precipitous drop-off. It made me sick to look at what was available there when a DT was taken in the 1st round. This isn't the case every year, but it is THIS year.
