    I don't like any of them which is why I hope we go DB in the first round

    Perry is the bandwagon pick right now, but I've always sort of been high on him. Watching games last season, he was the guy on the list that stuck out to me.

    He was productive, he is physically gifted, and USC is generally pretty good about churning out NFL ready talent.

    Whitney Mercilus is probably my #2.

    I never liked Coples. He is selfish, lazy, and has incredibly poor judgement.

    I'm not anti-Curry, but he hasn't wowed me either. The times I watched Marshall, he did absolutely nothing.

    Unless we sign Mario, there's no way we pass on a DL in the 1st. We only take a DB if we end up losing Finnegan AND Griffin in FA.

    In an honest assessment of perry vs curry

    Curry seems stiffer on film, but does well to play inside/outside.

    Perry of course seems a bit faster but also he didn't play at 270.. It would have been a bit easier to have seen him at that weight.

    Curry does well redirecting while Perry loses a some steam getting back to the play.

    I think both play the run good, perry has a better spin more. Curry leans and shifts better IMO.

    Combine-
    Curry's 10 yard split of the 40 - 1.68
    Perry's 10 yard split of the 40 - 1.56

    The 4.5 and 4.8 40s don't matter, the 10 splits do.

    Currys Vertical 32"/broad 9'2
    Perrys vertical 38.5/broad 10'4

    Perry has more lower explosion. Probably has the slightly better jump at the line because of it. Curry is no slouch though, and his 10 split says it's pretty close in the same area getting to the qb.

    I think one of the main things that us draftniks can't delve into much are personalities of each and who might fit better for our team. Character/smarts/the neck up portion.

    Both are very similar in size 6'3-265/271, 33 inch arms.

    Both have a good array of moves, Perry seems to try and speed his way around most tackles and cause disruption, Curry had better luck with the bullrush and splitting the gap. On film Curry seems to be a more aggressive presence, while Perry looks Fast

    And no one knew who Curry was prior to the senior bowl so what's your point? It's called a process for a reason. I've watched Perry for about 2 years now and I thought the dude was a baller. I didn't bother talking about him here because there is no way the Titans would take a 250 lb defensive end. At 270 he becomes a much more likely candidate.

    That statement might be true for people who Only follow the prospects once the season is over and off season, draft season begins, but hardly true for those that begin early.

    I would dare you to find a single post hyping up Curry pre-Senior Bowl.

    December? Being mocked to the third... My next post was that I doubt he would make it that far.

    Wasn't being hyped up but he wasn't Casper.

    Me, too. I still go with Perry, though, overall. We need someone who can play the run and still be the speed rusher when we need it. If we sign Ball, Perry probably starts out as a rush specialist, until Ball gets more banged up.

    I'm okay with Mercilus and Ingram, but there's DTs and guards I'd consider in there, too.
