We can take a guy that has good ability Ė and I think both the guys we have have real good ability Ė and get him to play well.Ē

I think offensive needs will outweigh defensive in next draft so I do not anticipate seeing a NT taken before round 4 of any shape or size.
That quote by Wade, especially the last sentence, just reinforces what I've been saying all along. Take the BEST PLAYER. Not the biggest player.
Why hamstring yourself with a less talented player? Why take a good big guy who Wade can get good play from when you can take a better semi-big guy who Wade can get better play from?
Talent is more important than weight, especially when you have a coach like Wade who can maximize that talent by using it correctly.
