We have

Abraham- Self Explainable

Andersen- Showed Flashes before concussion, lets hope he gets back on that streak.

Biermann- Situation Pass Rusher, Very quick

Lewis- lets hope his injury days are behind him

Chauncy Davis- Great Player, Great Effort

Babineaux- Great Player

I think if a trade actually went through for Dorsey, or we get a good DE and a good DT in the draft our defensive line is going to be good. What DT and DE would you want in the draft?

I say if there is a reasonable dorsey trade thats tempting but I doubt it, I would like Michael Johnson in the first, or a better DE that fell Maybe Everette Brown and Ron Brace in the 2nd, or if a Good DT feel somehow Id take him in the first and Larry English in the second.

Far from that, we need a DT, DE, 1 OLB, 1 CB, 1 Safety.

From our Defense now, im only sold on Abraham.

Potential and would have a breakout season this year and be solid for us in the future:

Babinuex, Lofton, Chevis Jackson.

Ok starter for now:

Coleman, Houston, Peterson

Great Points, I was talking about the Defensive line, I should have been more clear. But thats pretty accurate we are not as far as it looks.

We will be fine and will make the playoffs with our Offense as long as none of our starters get injured. I think we will be top 5 in our offense.

But for our Defense we will need 2 or 3 more years to be top 5.

Actually Coleman is a great starter and is underrated.

-While Babs is not mind blowing, he is very active against the run....and shoots the gaps handily.

-Chauncey is an effort guy...but is just serviceable. He has a ton of experience though, so maybe his experience will elevate him to be an at least average starting DE.

-Trey Lewis is a wildcard dark horse.

-JA gives minimal effort, and is not an average NFL starting DE. He will be gone I think before the season starts if he hasnt turned a leaf.

-Jason Jefferson is a decent run defender.

-Moorehead is pretty much as mediocre as JA, but without the upside.

-Simon Fraser, scary enough, might be the 3rd best DE on this team...but is not as reliable as Moorehead.

-Abe should be barred from playing in the NFL....its like watching a grown man beat on pre-school kids. A straight up monster.

-Beermeister is developing against the pass, but will probably always be weak against the run. He is active enough though to stand up and play...which makes him very dangerous for 3rd downs.

ki46dinah, every point you made was good, apart from JA98...

whatever you think, and i respect your opinion, he will never be cut before the season starts, it just wont happen. He may surprise you, he is due the breakout, it is 50-50 in my eyes, i see it having the potential to happen

Ki46dinah, I liked your post but I reworked it a little no insult intended just wanted to expand on it.

LDE

-JA gives minimal effort, and is not an average NFL starting DE. He will be gone I think before the season starts if he hasnt turned a leaf.

-Simon Fraser, scary enough, might be the 3rd best DE on this team...but is not as reliable as Moorehead.

(I’m not sold on him yet, he only managed to get into 5 games last season)

-NOTE Davis has played this side as well

-NOTE Biermann has played this side as well

-Willie Evans, of unknown ability but was a pass rush specialist in college

LDT

-While Babs is not mind blowing, he is very active against the run....and shoots the gaps handily.

-Moorehead is pretty much as mediocre as JA, but without the upside.

(I actually think more of Moorehead than you seem to.)

-NOTE Anderson has played this spot on occasion

-Thomas Johnson of unknown ability or -Tywain Myles, of unknown ability

RDT

-Trey Lewis is a wildcard dark horse.

-Jason Jefferson is a decent run defender.

-Tywain Myles, of unknown ability or -Thomas Johnson of unknown ability

( neither Myles or Johnson seem big enough for this position)

RDE

-Abe should be barred from playing in the NFL....its like watching a grown man beat on pre-school kids. A straight up monster.

-Chauncey is an effort guy...but is just serviceable. He has a ton of experience though, so maybe his experience will elevate him to be an at least average starting DE.

-Beermeister is developing against the pass, but will probably always be weak against the run. He is active enough though to stand up and play...which makes him very dangerous for 3rd downs.

My take on it is that we need a solid DT...this one piece will boost our d-line's production...players like Moorehead, Jefferson, Biermann, and Fraser are all role players...Biermann showing the most promise. Those guys will be effective when our starters have wore down an offensive line. Still, we need an effective playmaker at DT to solidfy our pass rush...I'm trying to remain optimistic about JA98...I really hope he becomes a playmaker at LE this year because we need a consistent push from that side, that's why I think if we get that playmaker in the middle to relieve some of the pressure he's been getting, we'll be set. Of course, we need depth at OLB, S, and CB, but we don't need starters per se...we have the talent at those positions to get the job done as long as our pass rush is effective.

Our defensive position isn't as bad as it seems...

I respect your opinion as well. And I hope he does surprise me...that would be awesome if he comes out swinging.

I qualified my remarks about his departure, that if he hasnt shown progression by the end of TC, I dont think he will be around any longer.

I get that feeling because this organization isnt about babying players, no matter previous status/draft position. Shoot, Boley was a rising stud coming off a bad year and we didnt even attempt to negotiate with him(which would have been useless anyways because New York gave him a good sized contract). Laurent Robinson was sent packing for series of injuries. Brooking, Milloy, Dunn, Crump.....all gone in the drop of a hat.

Anderson hasn't shown anything the likes of those gentlemen showed...thats why I think he is on the hot seat, big time.

Its not that I dont want him to succeed, that would be the best case scenario by a wide margin obviously.

I understand the way most of you feel about JA98 , I fealt the same way about Jenkins and Roddywith all the droped passes in their early years , but that taught me to be alot more patient with their development at their positions at this level of play in the NFL , and don't forget JA98 didn't have and NFL coach he's rookie yr. ,he had a NFL wanta be coach. P lus he has had to overcome all of the kaos in 07. So the 08 D line coaches had to staighten out all the wrong things he was taught in 07 It like he's in his 2nd now, not 3rd , so to speak . look at it this way he's got the run D part down , now he'll work harder on the pass D and sacks. We all want the same thing . I wouldn't be surprised you start seeing alot out of JA98 this yr..

I think if a trade actually went through for Dorsey, or we get a good DE and a good DT in the draft our defensive line is going to be good. What DT and DE would you want in the draft?

I say if there is a reasonable dorsey trade thats tempting but I doubt it, I would like Michael Johnson in the first, or a better DE that fell Maybe Everette Brown and Ron Brace in the 2nd, or if a Good DT feel somehow Id take him in the first and Larry English in the second.

I picked my top 15 DE Prospects and top 15 DT prospects in the order I would pick them.

DE players I would get in the draft are----------------------------------

#1 Michael Johnson, Georgia Tech

Height: 6-7. Weight: 266.

Projected 40 Time: 4.63.

Combine 40 Time: 4.75.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.59.

Benchx225: 28. Vertical: 38.5.

Projected Round (2009): 1.

3/10/09: Michael Johnson ran a 4.59 at his Pro Day. The Lions reportedly had him at 4.49 unofficially. Al Davis, meanwhile, had him at 3.39. Some team will take Johnson in Round 1 despite his work-ethic issues.

2/24/09: As expected, Michael Johnson lit up the 2009 NFL Combine. Jon Gruden went as far to say that he was a "Julius Peppers clone." Johnson has work-ethic issues, but coaches are arrogant; some will think that they can turn him around.

2/22/09: Michael Johnson put on about 10 pounds to his frame. We'll see if his 40 is affected by it.

1/9/09: People to love to bash Michael Johnson for his lack of production, yet the Georgia Tech end compiled 17.5 TFL, nine sacks and seven passes broken up as a senior.

11/16/08: Athleticism has never been Michael Johnson's problem; it was the lack of production on the field. However, that has changed. In 10 games, he has 12 TFL and six sacks. He could go top 10.

#2 Robert Ayers, Tennessee

Height: 6-3. Weight: 272.

Projected 40 Time: 4.73.

Combine 40 Time: 4.89.

Benchx225: 18. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 1.

1/9/09: Robert Ayers had a monstrous senior campaign and was consequently named to the All-SEC First Team. Ayers collected just three sacks, but had 15.5 TFL.

#3 Connor Barwin, Cincinnati

Height: 6-4. Weight: 256.

Projected 40 Time: 4.60.

Combine 40 Time: 4.66.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.47.

Benchx225: 23. Vertical: 41.5.

Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

2/24/09: Connor Barwin had an outstanding combine. He's as close to a second-round lock as you can get. There are a ton of teams atop Round 2 looking for rush linebackers, so Barwin may go to one of them.

1/9/09: Connor Barwin finished strong, compiling 15 TFL, 11 sacks, seven passes broken up and three blocked kicks in 14 games.

11/16/08: Connor Barwin has emerged for the upstart Bearcats, registering seven sacks and 9.5 TFL. More impressively, he has three blocked kicks!

#4 Larry English, Northern Illinois

Height: 6-3. Weight: 251.

Projected 40 Time: 4.70.

Combine 40 Time: 4.90.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.70.

Benchx225: 36. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 1-2.

2/25/09: Turns out Larry English is actually 255; not 274. With that in mind, his 40 was pretty disappointing, though the same can be said about almost everyone who attended the 2009 NFL Combine.

2/22/09: I'm not sure if this is a typo, but Larry English was listed at 6-2, 274. He was supposed to be 254. Hopefully this will be cleared up soon.

1/9/09: Larry English finished his senior campaign with 14.5 TFL, eight sacks and three forced fumbles.

11/16/08: Larry English is not going to match the 10.5 sacks he had in 2007. He has 4.5 sacks through nine games.

5/7/2008: Despite being the only talented defensive lineman on Northern Illinois' front, Larry English still managed 10.5 sacks, giving him 22.5 the past two years. I don't care whom you're playing - numbers like that can't be ignored. Look for English to shoot up draft boards like fellow MAC end Jason Jones did in April.

2007: Larry English recorded 12 sacks as a sophomore.

#5 Paul Kruger, Utah

Height: 6-4. Weight: 263.

Projected 40 Time: 4.64.

Combine 40 Time: 4.90.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.79.

Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 32.5.

Projected Round (2009): 2.

1/12/09: Coming off a national championship victory over Alabama, Paul Kruger has decided to declare for the 2009 NFL Draft as a mere redshirt sophomore. Though he could stay in school until he's 2011, I really don't have a problem with this; chances are, his stock will never be higher than it is now. In 13 games, Kruger recorded 61 tackles, 16.5 TFL, 7.5 sacks and seven passes broken up.

#6 Lawrence Sidbury, Richmond

Height: 6-3. Weight: 265.

Projected 40 Time: 4.75.

Combine 40 Time: 4.64.

Benchx225: 28. Vertical: 35.

Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

2/24/09: Even unofficially (the official times are obviously screwed up), Lawrence Sidbury ran one of the quickest 40s at the 2009 NFL Combine. He really helped himself on a day in which numerous defensive linemen disappointed.

1/9/09: An All-CAA First Team member, Lawrence Sidbury had 14.5 TFL and 6.5 sacks for national champion Richmond.

5/7/08: Lawrence Sidbury should be able to play in any scheme. He had eight tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks in 13 starts last season.

#7 Brandon Williams, Texas Tech

Height: 6-5. Weight: 252.

Projected 40 Time: 4.72.

Combine 40 Time: 4.90.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.78.

Benchx225: 18. Vertical: 33.5.

Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

1/14/09: Brandon Williams has chosen to declare for the 2009 NFL Draft a year early. I can't say I agree with this. Unless he has an amazing combine, Williams has no shot to be a Day 1 pick. Williams recorded 15.5 TFL and 13 sacks as a junior.

7/30/08: In the same boat as a few other players at the bottom of this list. Brandon Williams needs a faster 40 to warrant draft consideration, despite the fact that he registered six sacks and qualified for the All-Big XII second team as a mere true sophomore.

#8 Brandon Long, Michigan State

Height: 6-3. Weight: 254.

Projected 40 Time: 4.70.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.61.

Benchx225: 32. Vertical: 37.5.

Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

3/31/09: Brandon Long blew everyone away with a 4.61 40 and a 37.5-inch vertical at his Pro Day. Long had 5.5 sacks as a senior.

#9 David Veikune, Hawaii

Height: 6-2. Weight: 257.

Projected 40 Time: 4.84.

Combine 40 Time: 4.87.

Benchx225: 35. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

1/9/09: David Veikune finished his senior campaign with 16.5 TFL and nine sacks.

11/16/08: His 40 is a problem, but David Veikune has 5.5 sacks and 11.5 TFL in 10 games this year.

#10 Stryker Sulak, Missouri

Height: 6-4. Weight: 251.

Projected 40 Time: 4.65.

Combine 40 Time: 4.77.

Benchx225: 22. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 6.

1/9/09: A situational pass-rusher in the NFL, Stryker Sulak notched 15.5 TFL, 10.5 sacks, six passes broken up and six forced fumbles as a senior.

11/16/08: I'm still concerned about Stryker Sulak's 40, but he has 11 TFL and 6.5 sacks in 10 games.

5/7/08: Stryker Sulak is a blue-collar defensive end with a high motor, but his 40 at his size is a bit troublesome as far as his draft stock is concerned.

#11 Victor Butler, Oregon State

Height: 6-2. Weight: 248.

Projected 40 Time: 4.60.

Combine 40 Time: 4.84.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.72.

Benchx225: 26. Vertical: 33.

Projected Round (2009): 6.

1/10/09: Victor Butler had a monstrous senior campaign, finishing with 65 tackles, 21.5 TFL, 12 sacks and four forced fumbles.

#12 Willie VanDeSteeg, Minnesota

Height: 6-4. Weight: 255.

Projected 40 Time: 4.75.

Projected Round (2009): 6.

1/9/09: If Willie VanDeSteeg can improve upon his 40, he'll be close to a mid-round lock. He finished the 2008 campaign with 19 TFL and 10.5 sacks.

11/16/08: Aside from his off-the-field issue, Willie VanDeSteeg is a solid player who gets to the quarterback. He has 15 TFL and 7.5 sacks in 10 games.

5/7/08: Last year, I wrote that Willie VanDeSteeg was impossible to contain. Well, that turned out to be far from the truth, as he was arrested and charged with assault in the winter. VanDeSteeg also suffered shoulder and hand injuries last year.

2007: Willie VanDeSteeg is a sack machine. As a sophomore, he recorded 10, earning himself a spot on the All-Big Ten second team. He's nearly impossible to contain.

#13 Brandon Swain, West Texas A&M

Height: 6-4. Weight: 256.

Projected 40 Time: 4.72.

Projected Round (2009): 6-7.

5/7/08: Level of competition obviously has to be an issue, but Brandon Swain put up amazing numbers in 2007, including 14 sacks, 24.5 tackles for loss and five forced fumbles. A very intriguing prospect to say the least.

#14 Derek Walker, Illinois

Height: 6-4. Weight: 268.

Projected 40 Time: 4.74.

Combine 40 Time: 4.99.

Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 37.5.

Projected Round (2009): 6-7.

11/16/08: Derek Walker has six sacks this season - impressive, considering he'll be a left end in the NFL.

2007: Derek Walker has a habit of getting to the quarterback, but he also missed some action in 2006 with an ankle injury.

#15 Nick Reed, Oregon

Height: 6-2. Weight: 255.

Projected 40 Time: 4.91.

Projected Round (2009): 7.

1/9/09: Look at these figures: 13 sacks, 20 TFL, 12 quarterback hurries. I don't see how someone doesn't draft Nick Reed. He doesn't have the measurables, but he can play.

11/16/08: It's a shame. Nick Reed's production is off the charts again (10 games, nine sacks, 14.5 TFL), but his 40 is awful.

5/7/08: I'd like to see Nick Reed get his 40 time down a bit, but you can't say that his production isn't there; Reed recorded 12 sacks in 2007, a Pac-10 season high.

DT players I would get in the draft are-------------

#1 Ron Brace, Boston College

Height: 6-3. Weight: 330.

Projected 40 Time: 5.25.

Combine 40 Time: 5.47.

Benchx225: 32. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 2.

1/10/09: The monstrous Ron Brace collected 10 TFL and 2.5 sacks in 2008. He'll be highly sought after toward the end of Day 1, as quality nose tackles are hard to come by.

5/9/08: Took over for B.J. Raji as Boston College's mammoth nose tackle. Ron Brace started seven games and recorded 7.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks, earning an All-ACC honorable mention.

#2 Evander Hood, Missouri

Height: 6-3. Weight: 300.

Projected 40 Time: 4.94.

Combine 40 Time: 4.91.

Pro Day 40 Time: DNP.

Benchx225: 35. Vertical: 34.5.

Projected Round (2009): 2.

1/10/09: Qualifying for the All-Big XII First Team, Evander Hood had seven TFL, five sacks and 12 quarterback hurries.

11/23/08: "Ziggy" Hood has 47 tackles, six TFL and four sacks through 11 games this season. Not bad for a defensive tackle.

5/9/08: Earned an All-Big XII honorable mention with 4.5 sacks, eight tackles for loss and five pass break-ups in 14 starts.

#3 Jarron Gilbert, San Jose State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 288.

Projected 40 Time: 5.15.

Combine 40 Time: 4.87.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.80.

Benchx225: 28. Vertical: 37.

Projected Round (2009): 2.

2/24/09: Jarron Gilbert ran and jumped well at the 2009 NFL Combine. He's now in heavy second-round consideration.

11/23/08: Jarron Gilbert has terrorized quarterbacks this year. Through 11 games, Gilbert has 47 tackles, 21.5 TFL, nine sacks and three passes broken up.

5/9/08: Jarron Gilbert had 7.5 TFL, four sacks and four passes broken up as a junior.

#4 Chris Baker, Hampton

Height: 6-2. Weight: 326.

Projected 40 Time: 5.03.

Combine 40 Time: 5.02.

Benchx225: 24. Vertical: 35.5.

Projected Round (2009): 2-3.

2/24/09: How does a 326-pound tackle run a 5.02 and notch a 35.5-inch vertical?

1/10/09: Chris Baker has declared for the NFL Draft a year early. Baker, a transfer from Penn State, had 16.5 TFL and 8.5 sacks as a junior at Hampton. I actually like this choice - this defensive tackle class is weak once you get into the middle rounds.

#5 Dorell Scott, Clemson

Height: 6-3. Weight: 314.

Projected 40 Time: 5.04.

Combine 40 Time: 4.92.

Benchx225: 29. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 3.

1/10/09: Dorell Scott finished the season with just one sack, but had six TFL and five quarterback hurries.

5/9/08: A monstrous defensive tackle who can get to the quarterback on occasion. Dorell Scott had 50 tackles and three sacks in 2007.

2007: A starter as a sophomore, Dorell Scott is one of the hardest-working players in this class. He'll put up some good numbers on the bench press come Combine time.

#6 Sammie Lee Hill, Stillman

Height: 6-4. Weight: 329.

Projected 40 Time: 5.23.

Combine 40 Time: 5.11.

Benchx225: 27. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 3-4.

2/24/09: Sammie Lee Hill ran very well for his frame. Considering how rare quality nose tackles are, he definitely increased his stock.

2007: Sammie Lee Hill had 14 TFL and 4.5 sacks as a junior.

#7 Vance Walker, Georgia Tech

Height: 6-2. Weight: 304.

Projected 40 Time: 4.99.

Combine 40 Time: 5.33.

Benchx225: 29. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

11/23/08: Vance Walker's sack total is down (3) this year. He also has 8.5 TFL through 10 games. He should be able to play both the 4-3 and 3-4.

5/9/08: Vance Walker made major strides in 2007, registering 8.5 sacks in 13 games. Oh, and he's just as good at stopping the run as he is getting to the quarterback.

#8 Terrance Knighton, Temple

Height: 6-3. Weight: 317.

Projected 40 Time: 5.18.

Combine 40 Time: 5.18.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.93.

Benchx225: 21. Vertical: 29.

Projected Round (2009): 4-5.

3/29/09: It's appears very likely that Terrance Knighton will be drafted in the middle rounds. He shed four pounds between his Combine and Pro Day, and managed to run a very impressive 4.93.

#9 Roy Miller, Texas

Height: 6-2. Weight: 312.

Projected 40 Time: 5.04.

Combine 40 Time: 4.97.

Pro Day 40 Time: 4.93.

Benchx225: 36. Vertical: .

Projected Round (2009): 5-6.

1/10/09: Roy Miller finished the season with 9.5 TFL and 4.5 sacks.

11/23/08: Roy Miller stepped up when Brian Orakpo was out; two of his 3.5 sacks came during that span. Miller has 36 tackles and 8.5 TFL on the year.

5/9/08: Roy Miller doesn't get to the quarterback much (4.5 career sacks) but he's still a solid force in the middle of the defensive line. A mid-round prospect

2007: Another promising prospect in the class of 2009. Roy Miller started five games as a sophomore.

#10 Nader Abdallah, Ohio State

Height: 6-5. Weight: 310.

Projected 40 Time: 4.96.

Projected Round (2009): 6.

1/10/09: Finished with five TFL, three passes broken up and a sack.

11/23/08: Nader Abdallah has 28 tackles, one sack, four TFL and three passes broken up through 11 games as a senior.

5/9/08: Nader Abdallah recorded 32 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss and 2.5 sacks as a junior. Abdallah, who started nine games last year, should be able to have a solid combine (4.96 40, 32-inch vertical, 30 bench reps).

A highlight reel of Nader Abdallah's 2007 season.

#11 Myron Pryor, Kentucky

Height: 6-0. Weight: 319.

Projected 40 Time: 5.05.

11/23/08: Leg and ankle injuries have slowed down Myron Pryor. Once a first-round candidate, Pryor may not be drafted.

5/9/08: Myron Pryor had a bit of a disappointing junior campaign, but his combination of size and speed will get him drafted in the first three rounds.

2007: Started 10 games as a sophomore and recorded four sacks and four forced fumbles. Has the potential to be a top-15 selection come 2009.

5/9/08: A monstrous nose tackle who was a third-round prospect on this chart until he suffered a knee injury last season.

Greatness may be a bit of stretch, but I will say this. Look back at the the best defensive lines over the last 10 years and you will see an overall team defense that is in the top 5.

Yea, I think if we have an effective pass rush and effective rotation our defense is gonna look better. It will help out everyone.
