A NT does none of that, while also only playing 50% of the game, at most.
I agree with this! I understand DL's 3-4 philosophy, but all teams gonna do is spread us out and throw all day, leaving Nix on the sideline 75% of the year maybe more. Gotta get someone to cover AJ Green, Tory Smith, Josh Gordon. Our current CB situation is below average to average, at best. Also need a MLB to play next to Timmons. Hopefully Spence can do it, but I would rather use our 1st pick on a MLB rather than a NT. Losing Foote and Harrison hurt our run defense more than not having a stout NT. As for a WR, I say develop the rooks from last year. J Brown and Moye are good tall receivers. Run in the end zone, and out jump your defender. I think they should be able to handle that with another year under their belts.
