Defensive line is not a position. We can draft defensive line back-to-back and not flood a position.
I think we will need a nose tackle capable of starting--and starting rather quickly.
We will need a defensive end that has the potential to become a starter in the future and is capable of being a rotational player this year.
We are going to have other needs.
If Goldson leaves, and it looks like he will, we are going to need safety.
We could move to improve at wide receiver, corner back, and tight end.
I want to us to meet our needs, but I really do not care how we do it.
Nor, do I see any logical reason to argue that we should use our first round pick on a defensive end, nose tackle, or any other position.
Best Player Available.
