Default Texans DL

I do not know all the ins and outs of DL play, but I think we all agree that
DT is a huge need. But do we need a 2 gap, line clogging, double-team commanding NT that will tie up the line and free the backers to make plays...

Or, do we need a 1 gap, penetrating quicker Dt?

I think the Texans are not ready to give up on Okoye, so they will be looking for a stout NT to put next to him, hopefully freeing him up to get more penetration.

What think you?

I am going with big ugly.

Dan Williams is a big ugly, and he is not a sack machine, but he does have the ability to push the pocket back thus taking away the step up. That should make it easier for Mario, Barwin and who ever is playing next to him.

Dan Williams by far the better DT and much better for our team.

Ok, but I did not mean those players in particular. I was using those as examples of the types of DT that we would need.

If we waited until the third round to select a DT, and there was an equally rated NT and UT; which would fill the Texans need better?

In that case, the penetrating DT. Because I don't think the Texans are interested in a 2 gapper. But, I think Williams is capable of either style.
