    Sign Suh, and/or Wilkerson and draft one. Run problem solved.

    They say this is the best DL draft in ages, maybe history. That being said, we could use more than one starter alongside Casey.

    Suh, Wilkerson, Timmy Jernigan or Darius Philon are all upgrades in FA.

    Who could be available via trade?

    This would be great for us. With the way we've gone about this fa period we might as well spend it all minus a couple bucks in case of injury during the season and dl is or only "big" need at this point. Having a dl with suh, casey, jones and a 1st or 2nd pick as our main 4 would be solid.

    Thats overkill

    we only use 2-3 down linemen, 4 if its 3rd and long, but 2 of them would be Wake and Landry

    As cool as Suh would be, what I think we really need is a true NT. A hefty boy that is impossible to move. I don't care about stats or flashy plays. Just someone who can plug the hole and demand double teams.

    Danny Shelton maybe? I was advocating for Jonathan Hankins last year, but it looks like the Raiders just resigned him.

    Thats all good and all except we run some really exotic formations on defense, rarely calling for a NT.

    Not sure if thats by design or out of not having 3 good Dlinemen...

    But every off season we see JR ignore NT position. There may simply not be a huge need for one.

    I'd rather grab a DT in the first round, specifically Christian Wilkins, rather then go after a DL in free agency. We already have two guys signed to hefty deals in Jones and Casey plus we could use a long term partner/successor on the DL to pair with Casey. Casey/Jones/Wilkins would be a great DL in base 34 plus all they can all rotate in and out in nickel.

    If JRob wanted to grab Suh on a 1 year, 14 million dollar deal and draft Jeffery Simmons in the second though I wouldn't be opposed

    Your right, but having guys to rotate on dl is always a good idea. Keep casey and suh fresh for passing downs. Add to that suh is older and shouldn't be playing every down.

    My guess is that we pick up a vet run stuffer on the cheap and draft a penetrating DL

    Suh would be a great pick up leaving open the draft for the best available at the time where it be an edge rusher or BD
