Re: LZs premiere 2009 Mock has us taking a DT. No Way !
Jerry is most likely the best fit with the scheme we're alleged to be going with. He's quick, agile, and can get to the passer, which seems to be all we're focused on.
For those wanting us to take a clogger like Brace or Dorell Scott, it simply won't happen. Frank Bush claims to want players who will shoot the gaps and make plays in the backfield, and Kollar's DLs fit this mold as well. This probably fits our personnel better since we have a slew of one gap penetrators who are unable to even command a double team, much less beat one. What makes Jerry different than what we already have is his quickness. He's much quicker and more agile than anybody we have on the roster. That being said, that's pretty much all he has. He's going to be a 25 year old rookie who is undersized and not stout at the point of attack and gets pushed around in the running game. He has the makings of another guy who is more or less done if he doesn't beat the blocker with his quickness. I think he'd probably work best in a Tampa-2.
We'd probably be better off going with Orakpo at this pick and hoping for Ziggy Hood in the second or even Mitch King in the later rounds.
Smoke 'em if you got 'em...
