Default Re: Will we draft a NT?

I realize he had no stats against DeCastro and was likely dominated by him. But he is the best guard in the draft and rated the 2nd best lineman behind Kalil in the draft. 3-4 nosetackle aren't suppossed to get sacks, so if he can hold up 2 people we're good. Hampton has averaged 2-3 tackles per game and has 9 sacks in his 11 year career, but his worth is in taking up space and holding up blockers.
Ta'Amu has the size to do that. Throw 25 more lbs of fat on that guy and we'll have an anvil in the middle for a while.
He would have been a decent late 2nd round pick for us and we got him in the 4th.
