Default What about a 3-4 DE?

I don't see him listed very often, but I like the oportunity to pick Jared Odrick. A 6-4, 300 pounds DT from Penn State, he could very well play DE in our 3-4 schemes. I think he proved to be a versatile player on the line. With him and Ziggy Hood, we could have our DE for many years, and we know the importance of those guys everytime Aaron Smith is out. It's pretty hard to find some potential elite 3-4 DE, and hopefully we won't have a top 10 pick for years to fill them. With this year draft class, we can have a quality 3-4 DE with the 18th pick. A real oportunity, i think.

There's also guy like Carlos Dunlap, maybe Everson Griffen... I don't know those players as well.

And if not, players like Rolando McClain (will he fall? I think not, but who knows), Witherspoon, or a first round OL to upgrade our running game (Iupati, Trent Williams) would be good choices, in other direction.

In fact I'm happy we re-signed Ryan Clark, added Will Allen so safeties are not a priority in the draft. DE, ILB and OL are more urgent to me, at least on the first rounds.

i doubt they'll go for another DE this soon. obviously they felt sonny harrison has potential by the way they snatched him back off carolina's practice squad... plus they cut eason and i'm assuming it was so they could make room for him on the 53 roster. in order to pick another DE ,then they'd have to cut either kirskie or harrison.

I think that CB and OL is more pressing for the first round. IMO

Kirschke is a FA (along with Eason)...and neither re-signed (as of yet). Right now its, Smith and Keisel with Hood and Harris (not Harrison fyi). I wouldnt mind seeing Eason back or a late round draft pick (who probably wouldnt see much action and be inactive most of the year, but still).

Default Re: What about a 3-4 DE?

we can get a good DL in late rounds..
1) Lamarr Houston Texas in 3rd...6' 2" 270 Extremely disruptive and explosive. Pushes the pocket, sheds blocks well and is excellent against the run.
2) Mike Neal Purdue in the 4th..6' 4" 304 Good size and quickness. Has a variety of effective pass rushing moves from the inside. Pushes the pocket well. Good athlete with high motor.
3) Linval Joseph Texas in 5th 6' 6" 322...Huge frame, typical DT in a 3-4 system, clogs the middle, good wrap up tackler, strong push off the snap, great upper body power, gets his hands up to knock down passes, good footwork for his size.
4) Torrell Troup in the 5th 6' 3" 314..All-Conference USA second team. Dominated during East-West Shrine practices. Instinctive, disruptive and pushes the pocket well. Very good against the run and takes up space.
5) Clifton Geathers South Carolina in 5th 6' 8" 290..Big body, long arms, speed rusher, wrap up tackler. Inexperienced..this one has time to learn..
top 4 are DT's but fit our 3-4 DE...

Aaron Smith was drafted in 4th
Brett Keisel was drafted 7th

Most see Troup as a 3rd/4th round NT, not a DE, if we got him I wouldnt have a problem with a young guy behind Casey.

Another one you add to your list is Alex Carrington, 6'5" 285.

He may have moved himself up to far though.
