We could have had Victor Adeyanju(DE) in the 3rd round this year. He has played since week one in St Lois and his stats are pretty good.

The killer is Mark Anderson (6.5 sacks last I looked) was there when we took Julian Jenkins (6.5 splinters in his a$$). That's a case where we were looking for a DL and he was there and the team didn't pull the trigger on a guy who looks a lot better than Jenkins.

But look at the players that surround Mark Anderson! He's in a great situation rotating in and out, I don't think he'd be as good here. But Julian Jenkins was a bad pick, no doubt.

If he's not careful he might force us to take UT off the draft priority list. This guy has really helped the D out the last few weeks and is getting consistent pressure on the QB. If he keeps it up we might have found our answer.

Yeah.  I don't think UT is nearly as big a need as some do.  Wyms is playing it like it's supposed to be played.

I'd still like us to draft a stud UT.  It can only help with more pressure and better rotation...

Without Carl Nix it feels like our running game just took a death blow to the face!

But at what cost?  Do you mean in the 1st or the 1st day?  I wouldn't mind one in the 3rd round.  With Wyms playing like he is, it gives us a lot more flexibility on draft day.  We're going to need a corner, a DE, and a linebacker.  I think those needs move ahead of UT if Wyms continues to play like he is.

i say we still draft one, maybe somebody that can move to DE but mainly DT, the booger trade was a good thing

Add Safety and a fast WR to your list.

Larry Brackins can play both positions.   ;D

Hopefully we'll be able to fill at LEAST one of those with a reasonably young free agent this offseason.  We'll really need some of those to help alleviate the positions that need addressing on draft day.

I thought our DL played really well on Sunday.

Wyms has been looking good all season. With more snaps he generates more production which is really nice. Him getting pressure has helped the rest of the defense as well. Hopefully we'll get another solid UT in the first day of the draft but not the 1st round. We can't afford to spend that pick on a DT. Definately a DE though if we are in position.

Wyms, as many thought is really playing well. It took a trade to get him in there full-time but I think he has played very well. What is it, 3 sacks the past 3 games or something?

I dont watch much College Football, but the general perception seems to be that there are no Pass Rush DT's worth taking in the First Round, whereas there are two DE's that are worth taking called Quentin Moses and Gaines Adams.
