    Lol. No the dude is not even remotely supposed to play NT.

    That's a complete waste of his pass rushing talent to become a space eater and second fiddle to the LBs.

    You can have a 1 gap NT. He doesn't have to be a big huge space eater. If Casey can force teams to use a G and C to block him because he is always shooting the A gap then he is occupying 2 blockers which is what you want.

    Just pointing out that we certainly signed Ropati to a deal that pays him as a starter and if we actually do go after Arthur Jones it will be as a starter. Then you have your 2 BIG run stuffing DEs and Casey needs a place to play.

    Waste of talent regardless. You can put average NTs there and do the same thing. He is special. Do you see the texans putting watt as a Nt? 15 LBs difference.

    Should we look at Demarcus Ware?

    We have filled a few holes on defense so far in FA but will still need to pick up some pass rush and a vet CB. Who's still out there worth going after?

    Not sure I agree with CB. I feel like we have a ton of lineman and linebackers currently. I think we really need an ILB more than anything.

    Well the good news is that we have filled allot of hole in FA. That allows us to draft the best available player and not have to draft based on need.

    Do you think Barr will still be available at the 11th spot. Methinks, we see him go right before our eyes at 9 or 10.

    I'd be ok with Barr cause he's a huge talent even though he's mad raw. I'm not enamored with him like some but pick or pass I'll be ok because we have his LB coach who should know him better than anyone else and if we pass it says something and if we pick him it says something.
