    At pick 20 The following are available:

    Whitney Mercilus DE
    Upshaw DE
    Nick Perry DE

    Fletcher Cox DT

    Devon Still DE/DT

    Morris Clairborne CB
    Janoris Jankins CB
    Dre Kirpatrick CB

    I think we go with Devon Still...I think Wembley and Morgan are expected to hold down the DE slots, we need a big, aggressive DT that can eat up double teams.

    We WILL NOT draft a S at #20, I seriously doubt we take any position on the O-line at #20, either. CB is a possibility but I doubt it.

    I love the idea more and more to take someone like Still, Brockers, or Cox.

    I think we go DT too.

    I like what I've seen of Brockers but I am SO apprehensive to take a D-lineman from LSU.

    I think that Kendall Reyes and Devon Still are better prospects than Brockers.

    If we get a solid DT that can plug those gaps I think it will act similar to how a Center for us kills multiple birds with one stone.

    A DE is great, but a great DT who can plug holes makes us better at stopping the run, he can also free up space for DEs to pass rush and as we all saw with Al, can make our Secondary look that much better.

    But where is Rocker taking our D? Does someone like Brockers fit? Still? Reyes?

    Well Klug is a great as an exploive rotation player but he's too small to be an every down DT.

    Casey is our best DT.

    Smith was useless. Out of shape loudmouth.
    Marks. He showed signs of life in the last 4-6 games but has been otherwise invisible since we drafted him.

    A 4-3 Defense lives or dies by its strength at DT. I really think DT is a bigger need than DE.
