I REALLY think we need to take a nose tackle with the first pick. The tackles in the draft are poor as 2 of the top 3 are returning to school which forced one of the few late 1st round tackles (Eric Fisher) to the top 15 maybe even top 10. The rest of the linemen are G/C and the leftover tackles will play on the right side at best. The safeties are not the best coverage guys out there and we already have the hard hitting Pollard. If T'eo falls I would try to get him in the 2nd as he isn't worth the 1st round grade without his intangibles. (Also declining your Senior Bowl invite which would be the last chance to prove yourself after failing against good talent...I mean really?).
The NT spot has really shifted in the past few weeks. Jonathon Hankins, John Jenkins, and Jesse Williams, have all moved back and forth in the first round. My favorite is Jesse Williams. He is the anchor of that Alabama defense and shows incredible ability vs the run. Jonathon Hankins bad motor and questionable work ethic isn't what you want from the biggest guy on the field. Could turn into another Cody (yet Cody didn't have his talent). John Jenkins is a good pick as well but I'm just not a fan.
