IMO, Linval Joseph is not a good NT prospect. I watched him play a few times this season. I think he'd be a good 3-4 DE. He is tall with really skinny legs. He does not get low enough or have enough lower body strength/mass to survive the double team inside against shorter players with lower centers of gravity. He will be effective as a 3-4 DE because he has good athletcism, mass, and long arms to keep athletic, taller tackles and TEs at bay. He could be a player that could play both 3-4 DE and be an emergency NT. I just don't think he is a natural NT.Originally Posted by Chadman
I like the Shofield and Tracy picks. We need to improve our OLB/pass rushing depth. I really haven't been impressed with Sean Lee post knee injury. If the explosiveness comes back, I'd be more interested.
I am not as opposed to Iupati as many are. I think he will develop into a very good pro run blocker who can hold his own in pass pro. But, he is a bit of a project and he is not very smart.
