They really cannot be compared because all teams have two corners and not all teams have a true NT.

This is why you take a NT if there is one available who can plug the middle for a long time.
It isnt easy to find a quality NT, if it was easy we would have one already.
Funny how everyone brags about Lebeaus stats while we had Hampton but now its a position we can find in later rounds.
Kelvin Benjamin has a rare combination of size and athleticism. But, Mike Evans has that and TONS of production. I can't see Benjamin going before Evans (let alone that you have him going before Watkins as well). That just seems nuts to me.
But, if it fell that way, I'd say thank you Buffalo and take Evans.
I'd also look at Dennard and Ebron.
1 Mike Evans WR Texas A&M
2 Stephen Tuitt DE Notre Dame
3c Keith McGill CB Utah
4 Ross Cockrell CB Duke
5 Jordan Zumwalt ILB UCLA
5c Anton Exum S Va Tech
6 Trey Millard FB/TE Oklahoma
7 Cody Latimer WR Indiana
7c DeAnthony Thomas RB Oregon
only poe and raji (who isnt even a true NT) would be guys drafted higher at the position if we took a NG at 15
balt - cody - late 2nd
SD -cam thomas - 5th
colts - franklin - low level FA singing from SF. who ho was an original 5th rounder from baltimore
texans - mitchell 3rd
browns - taylor 21st overall... has he stood out in any game vs. us?
jets - ellis 3rd
buff - kyle williams. NT playing 4 man front 5th round
49ers - dorsey. former bust as 4-3 DL with KC... lowlevel FA signing
cards -williams late 1st and t'aamu
saints - bunkly low level FA pick up (former philly 1st). jenkins 3rd
skins - cofield - mid level FA singing.. drated by NYG in the 4th where he played DT
eagles - sopoaga - LL FA singing from SF where he was origianlly a 4th rder
other recent notables - jay ratliff 7th rder. kemo brother's was undrafted and played well for a long stretch
the last couple of years here, casey was pretty washed up and coming off the field in passing situations. yet, we still had a top defensive unit without him being the player he was in his prime.
I dont think we need a 15 overall pick to duplicate that production in theose years and still be a top defense
Bens rookie season Casey out for the season game 6.
Most games missed of Casey's career (10).
Was all hope lost as our defense plunged into mediocrity? Nope.
Hoke starts the remaining 10 games and not only do we win all 10, we end up with the number one defense in both points and yardage and a Steeler all time record for wins.
We lost nothing when Casey was out when we had a stable of pro bowl linebackers.
Put Potsie and Harrison in their prime on this team and we would be talking about how McClendon makes them look great.
