    Of the top 10 DT's in this years draft, only 5 come off as good enough to be on my favorite team.

    The 5 guys I'd hope we don't draft are:
    1.) Dontari Poe Memphis
    2.) Kendall Reyes Connecticut
    3.) Mike Martin Michigan
    4.) Alameda Ta'amu Washington
    5.) Josh Chapman Alabama

    Now for the football players I approve of:
    1.) Michael Brockers LSU
    2.) Fletcher Cox Mississippi State
    3.) Jerel Worthy Michigan State
    4.) Brandon Thompson Clemson
    5.) Devon Still Penn St


    Thoughts?

    I think we can get a solid DT in the second. And a couple of your approved can still be around when we pick 2nd.

    Why wouldn't you want Mike Martin? I can see your argument if you are just basing it solely on round 1 and 2, but I see no reason to not want him in the 3rd and beyond.

    I think hes better suited as a NT and not a DT

    Hes a fine player otherwise

    I don't think that's the case at all. He didn't produce giant numbers as a NT at Michigan because he doesn't beat the double team. He isn't a mammoth body type to hold the point of attack as well either. What he does do extremely well is beat one on one linemen and also has a decent knack for finding and closing the hole and run stopping.

    In the NFL, he is a bigger more durable klug. Playing the under tackle position in a good defensive front will make him look like a monster. Especially if the oline has to start deciding who to double. He is a matchup problem in the right scheme.

    I don't see a problem with Martin in the 2nd/3rd. I don't know a whole lot about Reyes so I won't comment on him. I do agree about the others.

    Most of your 5 worst DT's are 3-4 guys anyway, so I agree (but I love Martin's motor). I completely agree with your top 5, but I would rank Still higher and Thompson lower.

    Still is my favorite DT and will probably be there at 20. Just depends on who else falls.
