You don't take a DT with a top 3 pick either. If you are watching someone and they are saying "that's not good value" for that pick... Ingram was GREAT value at 11...
Very good argument, the NFL does change over time. Hopefully we'll see something we've never seen out of 3/4 DEs in 2011 that will justify it.
