    Amen! Everyone is so enamored by Dunlap's size and speed but he hasn't done . I could name five DE off the top of my head I would take before Dunlap.

    Please please please God, don't let us draft another workout warrior i.e. Calico. We need football players like Kenny Britt, and our other recent top picks. Worry about the measurables after their play catches your attention.

    I haven't seen enough of the kid to make a judgment but if we're wanting him just because he puts up good workout #s, then I say pass.

    IF he's the real deal at DE then give him a nice long look. I won't rule out any prospect at this point. It's still too early. I'm ready for the Combine already. I miss football. Basketball and baseball just ain't gonna cut it.

    Workout warrior like Calico? Calico wasn't a workout warrior.

    He was a 6'4 WR with blazing speed- that showed a LOT of potential up until having his career killed by Roy Williams.

    Now Chris Henry... there's a workout warrior.

    Nice. This is way true. I still hate Roy Williams for that. Calico coulda really been a star for us. Henry can't see for s...

    yeah god -4.34 speed too - he had such potential and was actually finally coming together and all in the last year and that preseason was playing great


    .....then Roy Williams screwed up his knees - esp his ACLs - beyond return (in a freaking preseason game too) and it went all downhill from there


    F u roy

    WTF he is not just a workout guy he was a damn good player. He had 9 sacks in each of the last 2 seasons and averaged 35 tackles. How far did you have to travel to find that?

    He has the size and speed to play any position in our defensive line. He shares similar characteristics with Jason Jones and William hayes but is bigger than Jones and might be faster than Hayes.

    Florida's system asked a lot of him and he delivered. He was not ever a 3-4 OLB pass rusher he played both inside and outside.

    He plays every line position in this video and plays well and pursues all over the field. He is a perfect match for what we do up front.

    He takes way too many plays off. I have no interest in a DE who disappears for long stretches. We need a guy who will play every down as hard as he can.

    Dunlap better not be the pick.

    what about that video impressed you? His pursuit is slow motion he shows no extra gear.

    Yeah, that video is far from impressive. He looks slow and disinterested on many of the plays.
