I like the pick. Now Atlanta has a fierce 1-2 punch at UT. You can keep both him and Babineaux fresh and healthy.

Why the hell did we not exhaust every possible option to try and get Dorsey? Instead, we now have a 25 year old DT who doesn't have much potential.

I got no problems with the pick, as DT was a bigger need the DE in my book. I trust TD

He's going to start. It's just the fact that we got a guy who is 25 years old, not very big, and maxed out that upsets me. I think he's going to be a solid player, but nothing special. I'm not sure why we'd want a one-gap penetrator only with durability concerns. **** me, why didn't we go harder after Dorsey? Or even trade down when Peria Jerry is the best option.

We just re-signed Babineaux. He won't start.

If he starts the ball will be run down our throat.

There is no doubt he starts. This isn't Amobi Okoye. He's 25 years old, and our first round pick. No shot in hell we would draft a rotational player to backup our Iron Man of the DL with #24.

You know what Jerry would be great for? Pass rushing 3-4 DE on the opposite side of OLB John Abraham. Our pass rush becomes instantly credible, but not having Grady at NT would hurt us up the middle....and we'd need a couple big MLB's...one down in Lofton.

Which is why I'm mad at the pick. I can't see him, or Babineaux, starting at nose tackle.

I would rather have selected Ron Brace.

I like the pick.

Discussing whether he's going to "start" is narrow minded. We rotate our DTs heavily on a situational basis. Babineaux and Jerry are both going to get a lot of snaps, at the right times.

It does show that we are leaning on Trey Lewis to play plenty of snaps as well.

Also, our rotational strategy will negate Jerry's durability concerns.

Good pick, good value. And who gives a crap that he's 25? So what, we are paying him on a rookie salary during his peak years, that's actually better?

Not the perfect pick - I'd love it if he had 10 pounds extra - but good.

Also, impossible to say what it would have taken to get Dorsey. It sounds like we at least discussed it. Obviously the Chiefs wanted more than we were willing to give.

I think this would be a great place to take Johnson, and then try to get a S in the third, maybe trading up a bit.

Willy Mo, happy with that.

Let's hope that it was all about the foot injury, and we get the Junior season Willy Mo.

We've spent way too many picks on Safeties in the last 5 years, same with D linemen. This guy really needs to step up.

Good news is he is a big boy and looks more explosive than your usual big Safety. He could be a quality strong safety for years to come. I was never sold on DeCoud anyways, but you never know how these things will turn out.

Well, not totally what I was wanting or expecting but after last year I have learned to let the pros do their jobs, i.e. TD picking players. I like that both guys are long time starters at bigger schools who have shown flashes of greatness. Hopefully, they will come in and contribute immediately, but I wouldn't count on much from our rookies this year. We are a returning playoff contender and, as such, will look to have as little turnover in our starters as possible.

Michael Johnson may have been a good pick too, but I guess that all 32 teams have seen enough that they don't like.

We've addressed two major needs with good players. Satisfactory first day.

Will be interesting to see whether we go LB, OT, CB, or DE with the 3rd rounder tomorrow.

Hey, maybe Johnson will still be there...

I hope Johnson is there. if you told me in January we were getting both Jerry and Moore I would have been ecstatic. so I might as well smile now.

Watching some highlights, Jerry reminds me a lot of Rod Coleman. I'm not sure how he's going to work at NT. Gotta have faith in Smith and Thomas though. I wanted Michael Johnson, but William Moore is a high reward pick. I like it. Two guys with some durability issues today..
