    the Defense sucks when they are on the field 8 minutes at a time. The plan is for our Offense to keep drives alive to give them more rest. 3 and Out vs good QB'smakes the defense pack it in.

    That's fine. Everyone has their "guy" ... I admire when folks here can attach themselves to a pick and see what happens. The draft is my Christmas... Sometimes you get the gift you wanted... Sometimes you get something outta left field but is equally as awesome.

    I think the D has solid players, we just need better play calling (williams) and better TOP (Green, Warmack, Levitre).

    I also don't think the need for a DE is that great. Our guys are already getting to the Qb, the QB can just either step up in the pocket, or get rid of it because the scheme allowed easy azz completions. Doesn't matter how good your DEs are, they won't get sacks if QBs can get rid of it early.

    I am happy with our 2 picks

    I agree, and I see why people like certain guys. Honestly, I think it falls more into scheme and personality than actual ability.

    Yea that's true. I wanted Rhodes because he was so damn aggressive. Warmack filled a bigger void tho. Tank might have been there at our pick without trading up, but I think Hunter creates a different package for us. Our front office thinks and feels like we got two first rounders... Well so be it. Lets see

    Gave up a 3rd for a guy we could have had at 40. Teams gave up 3rd to move up in 1st round. Still not as dumb as giving up a 2nd for 3rd round Cook

    In case you guys haven't noticed, many guys we thought would go in the 3rd have gone much earlier than projected. I doubt Hunter would be there at 40. Never thought Swearinger and Amerson would go in the second, hell Alford just went in the second.

    12th best statistically or looking at them all objectively? 12 is going to be very tough either way to get to for Locker.
