    Ta'amu is really looking like a BEAST

    I have been strongly for a guard in the 1st but I have to say Ta'amu is really impressing me in the senior bowl.

    would he be there in the 2nd?

    the projections seem to be all over the place with this guy.

    Must get stronger in the trenches on both sides of the ball. A little bigger need on offense.



    Never argue with stupid people.
    They will drag you down to their level
    and then sick beat you with their experience.

    Who has he been lining up against?

    Any of the inside OL who we have been discussing?

    Re: Ta'amu is really looking like a BEAST

    The only way I'd really want to consider him at this point, is if he was a real difference-maker. We've spent two firsts on DL in the past few years, and TBH--neither appears to be a difference-maker. At best, both can be solid role-players. Now... the reason these two (Heyward & Hood) were drafted is partly because they also (with that "low ceiling") had a relatively low bust potential, but still... we need real impact players on our D. The fact that we had so few takeaways (despite having the "#1 defense") tells you all you need to know about our defensive needs.
    Guys and gals,
    If you play fantasy football, go to the FF forum here and read my thread. I'd appreciate some feedback on it.

    I don't agree with you on Heyward shoe. I think Heyward has a very high ceiling. Lets see what Heyward does with more playing time.

    I agree with you on Ta'amu. To be fair though, I hated when we took Gilbert in the 2nd last year. It sounded like a reach at the time, and now seems like a real solid pick.

    I agree. Remember, he had no TC or PS due to the lockout and not a lot of practice time with the starters as the one he backs up (Keisel) was mostly healthy.

    I like the glimpses of what we saw from Heyward and think that he will take a nice step forward in '12.

    Ta'amu would be a perfect fit for a 3-4 NT. However I like him better as an early to mid second round pick. He wont be there at pick #56 so we would have to move up. I would much rather use pick #24 on a higher rated player. Another perfect fit to me is NT Brandon Thompson of Clemson. He to is an early second to mid second pick.

    Re: Ta'amu is really looking like a BEAST

    Ta'amu can't keep our $107M or whatever franchise QB from getting battered onto the IR. That's the problem.

    Time to build an OL for the ages so Ben can play more than a few years more, AND so we improve the run game.
