    I like the way The Draft Network categorizes prospects. I think it makes the most sense. Here is a shot of their IDL ranking ATM

    IMO we need to add some youth depth, at least, to the DL, even if we do not take one first round.

    Some thoughts:
    • We likely do not have a shot at Quinnen Williams or Ed Oliver
    • We could have a shot at Jeff Simmons from MSU. He is a high effort, traditional gap penetrating DT. Though he is not good at 2-gapping
    • Those who want a "Traditional NT" will likely be disappointed as there are a lot of low cards in that hand. Dexter Lawrence looks like a fat underachiever as he has not come close to his freshman production. There are a couple interesting mid round picks who could turn into a DJ Reader type -- Greg Gains from Washington and Olive Sagapolu from Wisconsin

    Wilkins, Lawrence would be great at 19.... Jones, Simmons would be reasonable.

    Wilkins would be cool at 19 ya, i read some draft stuff that Simmons might fall because of his past off field issues, wonder if that ends up happening

    Starting to think this might be the best way to go in the draft. I noticed #99 from the senior bowl was a monster. Saunders was his name I think.

    Yup , this him


    You can look at ol vs dl drills at the senior bowl and see him dominate the competition.

    You do not start to get an accurate picture until after the combine
