Agreed, not only that he could help our offense while Heath is mending. All the talk about drafting defense in round one is questionable, now if someone has a defensive player who can start let me know cause I just see special teams players riding the bench until they can grasp the job in this defense.

If you are going to invest a first rounder in a NT, I want a really special player, and I'm not sure Hankins is that guy.

I would like to see Jon Cooper, fall to us at 17. If Adams can plat RT, the line could be scary good
If Star Lotulelei drops, I think we have to consider taking him. He could be our Haloti Ngata... Bulk to hold the nose, athleticism to stay on the field on 3rd down in pass rush situations. Situation is a lot like Jarvis Jones' in that if his health checks out, he may not drop, but if the opportunity to add a player of that caliber came up, I don't think you can pass.
His health checked out...
