    That would be awesome if he wins it. Patrick Willis is playing as good as Demeco did last year though....and Aaron Ross ...everytime i tune into a giants game seems like he's returning an interception! haha

    Yeah Willis is a straight beast. And to be honest, I was hoping we drafted him.

    Imagine having Demeco and Willis. But Amobi has truly earned his keep. And I love the pick. The kid is a fighter, and he'll be able to play for 22 year:)

    Amobi won't win it but he's valuable none-the-less.

    Him and Mario are extremely young. As we fill in the pieces around them and they grow and mature together they should be a forceful duo for years to come.

    OMG i know...it's so exciting to think about. TJ is finally developing into a player too, He's been impressive. I really thought Amobi would be mediocre this season and start doing better next season...He has REALLY exceeded my expectations!!

    Yea me too. I bought into the whole "undersized" schtick. It might still be true to a certain extent but it hasn't stopped him from producing. I really feel like if we could find a big fat body to stick at NT and a speed rusher for passing downs our DLine could live up to its potential.

    I've watched a couple 9'ers games to keep an eye on Willis. He's pretty much playing like Demeco did last year. He is all over the field making plays, perfect wrap up tackles, pressuring the QB, etc. He looks a lot faster than I thought he'd be.

    Amobi is one of the best first-round picks the Texans have made, right up next to AJ. In another year or two he is going to become such a dominating DT it's going to be insane.
