I just dont see us going with a smaller DE who isnt really good in run support early in the draft. I think some of you guys are forgetting how bad we are at stopping the run.
Well outside of Bullman's four....I'd say we could stand a little boost from You and McClain's tweener DT/RDE's. We have a choice here. Either we go get four elite DBs and eventually end up paying them ALL
fourteen million per year guaranteed, try to out cover Manning's 2.5 second release. Or find the best first step guy we can get our hands on. Which would mean the extra pressure makes our Mid round and gray beard safety's more productive.
Like it or not, we're waiting on Okoye and Okam to grow up. Considering what the high end DTs are commanding in salary....I don't see Travis Johnson going any where any time soon. McClain keeps posting they'll take another DT and Safety...we'll see.
My other thought is they didn't release Weaver. Now we all saw it. Eye in the sky don't lie. There's got to be a reason Weaver is still on this roster. Weaver/Maybin in my mind, in spite of what McClain posts...in spite of what Kubiak prefers....makes a pretty potent rotation in 2009. I'd go to war with that.
