atljbo Posted April 25, 2010 Share Posted April 25, 2010 In a post i did before the draft..... I was saying that we can either draft a impact DE with the 19th pick or draft a penetrating DT (first 3 picks) that can play in a rotation with Babs and Peria Jerry.... I honestly think Derrick Morgan or Brandon Graham was our 19th pick if either was on the board.... Neither was on the board so we took the impact LB.... Spoon is not a fall back guy because he was on our top 5 list... We got the impact LB that will help us in coverage and as a blitzer so all is well.So TD decided to go the DT direction...I looked at a couple of games again and i cant lie.... Kroy was even better then i thought.... Kroy Biermann is not one of those beastly DE's that will make everybody else on his D-Line better because he is such a beast or dominant on his own (not saying this in a bad way)... He is more of a Patrick Kerney/ Kyle Vanden Bosch type DE.... Those guys were good DE's during there prime... If you look back... Kerney and Vanden Bosch had their top notch seasons when they other good players on their D-Line... Kroy is one of those guys.... Abraham is on the other side and now we should have a really good penetration up the middle with 3 penetrating DT's... Babs is coming off injury so we dont want to over work him early and Babs took to many snaps last year (over worked him) ... Corey Peterson will help out with that.Also Sidbury showed some promise in his limited snaps last year.... We should be able to see his 4.5 speed off the edge since he has a season under his belt.... So Sid should see more snaps also.Sidenote: We should have some really good position battles this training camp.....WR: We all know Roddy, Jenkins, and Douglas are safe.... Fin and Weems will be in a battle for their WR spot.... Kerry Meier looks like a faster Fin clone and Ryan Wolfe is one of those chain moving Wes Welker slot WR's TD likes.DT: Peria and Babs are safe..... We just draft Corey Peters in the 3rd round so he is nearly safe also.... That leaves Thomas Johnson and Vance Walker to fight for the last DT spot... Lets remember that JA98 is bulking up to play some DT also... SO IDKCB:This is going to be a really good battle..... Dunta Robinson, Chris Owens, and Brent Grimes are safe.... Chevis Jackson, Brian Williams, and Dominique Franks will battle for the other spots.SS: William Moore vs Erik ColemanTE: Tony G is Safe... I wouldnt say Peelle is safe but he is close... Zinger, Colin Peek (a steal as a UDFA) , Michael Palmer, and my dark horse TE Leroy Banks Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
