    Datone Jones is the guy I'm leaning towards. He could set the edge as a 3-4 DE and open up things a little for Upshaw and Suggs behind him. He could also play the interior on passing downs giving us a different look from the big guys. Jones is absolutely on my list this year.

Leave Ngata where he is, and get another player that DEMANDS a double team. Ngata's skill set is not being maximized having his main responsibility being nothing but eating up blockers.

    Jordan was definitely one.

    No way he slid down to the end of round one.
    He's probably not getting past Philly, Chip Kelley must be licking his chops right about now.

    I'd rather have Jones than a guy like Jesse Williams in the first round.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    Both Cossell and Jeremiah were raving about Jones' versatility, I'm fully on board with him at 32

    I don't necessarily disagree with you about preferring Ngata at DE/DT rather than NT, but I'm already kind of afraid that a lot of the burst and athleticism Ngata once had is gone. He's had serious lower body injuries pretty much continuously over the last 2 years, but he can still anchor against double teams and rag-doll guys on the interior. We know he can play the position at a very high level, he had an All-Pro caliber year in 2008 filling in for Kelly Gregg at NT. Putting him at NT and rotating him more often could keep him fresher and possibly extend his career.

    I like the idea of bringing in a true NT prospect, and I think that's going to happen somewhere in the draft no matter what, but if you don't get somebody who's an immediate upgrade on Cody you have to have other plans in place. If we landed Datone Jones our talent at DE/DT would be really nice even without Ngata--Art Jones and DeAngelo Tyson are your run-stoppers, McPhee and Jones are your pass-rushers, and you have a really nice rotation there. Ngata would be able to really make an impact playing between those guys in both the run and pass, without needing to be the every-down guy he's been expected to be way too much.

    I would be OVER HE MOON with either Datone Jones or Margus Hunt.

    I think the Ravens will really like both, Ozzie and Eric have both already stated how they like the DTs in this class.

    Datone Jones absolutely DESTROYED the pac 12 Olines. He is like an athletic version of Cory Redding.

    Brandon Williams looks jacked for a NT, runs a 5.2 forty

    It'll be interesting to see what Teo, Minter, and Ogletree run in the 40. Teo or Minter could shoot up or down, depending on their 40. Also, interested in seeing how Star's health impacts the draft.

    I've seen a lot of twitter comments about Margus being a great workout guy but not really a great football player.

    Damontre Moore might fall with such a poor showing.

    Poor reps. Poor speed.

    How can Tavon Austin bench more reps than Moore?

    I wouldn't be surprised to see him retroactively blame an undisclosed injury.

    And he just pulled up lame on his second 40 attempt. What a shocker...now he has his excuse.

    He's raw, and up and down. How many freakish athletes like that make it in the NFL with poor college production? Quite a lot, when you consider guys like JPP. He's had some games where he looks like an unstoppable force, like against Fresno state in the bowl game.

    I like Hunt a lot, just not in the first 2 rounds, he's a much older prospect than most and very, very raw.

    He had like 2 huge games and the rest he disappeared.
