Couple of draft thoughts



I know a number of people here want a big run stuffing DT.  I really don't understand why.  The first three games this year were horrible and I account that to the LBs learning the new system and not staying in their lanes.  If you look at the rushing yards per game for the final 13 games then they had the second best run defense in the NFL.  I personally would rather have FS Earl Thomas or OG Mike Iupati.

 

 

Second I'm getting a mancrush on Toby Gerhart.

 I would definately be willing to take him in the second, he would be a steal in the third.  If you look that the 1:48 mark, he can even throw a HB pass (not that I ever want to see a Texan run that play again).  From what I've been able to see he's a downhill runner, plays well behind his pads, not stopped by the first tackler, has decent speed, and is willing to lower his shoulder and punish a tackler.  I think this guy is what Kubes wanted as a short yardage back.
