Let's pray that either of the top list 2 guys falls to us. I think their gone by the 28th pick. DT is gold more so than the position of safety.

List 1: Late round DT's to compliment the FA DT pick up. Targets: Renell Wren (3-tech), Daylon Mack (1-tech), and Kingsley Keke (3-tech).

List 2: 1st round worthy: Dexter Lawrence, Derrick Brown, and Christian Wilkens. 2nd round: Jerry Tillery, Raekwon Davis, Jeffery Simmons, Dre'mont Jones. 4th round: Greg Gaines, Ricky Walker.

Again... you are moving up to select a position that busts the most. The fact that TT has rather consistently found value over the last 3 or 4 years in the later rounds means that we are losing bullets. If you hit on the right one?... a real difference maker along the interior DL?... then it was worth it. But it is a serious gamble. Still would like to steal Grady away... he is a proven commodity.

The only problem with that is he got drafted in the 5th Round.

But he definitely has the ability to use his hands against pass blockers and get after the QB.

If we could draft Lawrence, re-sign Square... our DT's would be: Lawrence/Square, Philon/Jones. In that scenario, a late round DT round out the DL. That's where I think Wren or Keke would fit. I actually think Keke was being played out of position this year (DE) and was better his junior yeat @ 3-tech.
TT was reportedly interested in Taven Bryan, who was not great against the run at Florida.

I think they value explosiveness in the first round more than run clogging.
