See, the thing is, there are only 3 true NT's in the first 15 DT's in the draft. I passed on Dontari Poe in the 1st round, too risky for me to gamble on a boom or bust pick. I think he's an average player, just a workout warrior. So, someone took him at the end of the 1st round and teams like Denver & Houston might have taken him, then my only other option would have been to wait until the later rounds, or possibly Josh Chapman from Alabama.....but hes been injured before and I didn't want him.
So, if you really want someone and you believe i them, you go get them, knowing the draft is deep at OG/OT and I could wait. Could Ta'amu have fallen to me in the 2nd, sure. I just didn't want to chance it.
