    He's worth the risk. I see him as Haynesworth 2.0 in just about every aspect.

    Headcase? Check.
    Fat? Check.
    Lazy? Check.
    Ability to dominate? Check.
    Talented? Check.
    A crap human being? Check.

    If you think back, the last time we had a chance to go to the Superbowl was 2008 and we were 13-3. We had constant pressure on the QB provided by Haynesworth. The year after Haynesworth was gone we started 0-6, KVB wasn't the same and the secondary got exposed. Pressure up the middle by a dominant DT who can collapse the pocket can not be understated. It makes the whole defense better. And personally I like it that Fairley is a little rough around the edges. We need some mean guys who would rather step on your face as to look at you.

    I agree 100%.

    The most important position(s) after the QB is the defensive line. They're the first line of defense against the run and they're responsible for disturbing their passing game. A good defensive line can cover up a lot of weaknesses in the secondary. Haynesworth is a perfect example of this. With him, we had three pro bowlers in our secondary, without him we were one of the worst teams against the pass. Sure, there were other reasons for our struggles, but that is definitely the main one.

    That's the main reason why I would have given up a 3rd rounder to get Haynesworth last year and I would not be disappointed if we pick a DT over a QB in the first round.

    Perfect, let's take Albert Haynesworth version 2.0 at 8, what are you guys smokin'? One year wonder with a soft body and questionable motivation, just fantastic.

    And, just like that, he's back in the conversation for #2. I said it before, stick to the film, don't flow with the pre-draft hype.

    Forget the guy's name on the NFL Network but he said Fairley's Pro Day was as impressive as he's seen since covering them. Apparently, Fairley moves like a 255 lb DE in the body of a 295 DT.
