Yeup and imagine if we had a good NT next to Justin. Power RBs are running inside on us pretty effectively - and we don't want a NT? To me, it makes no sense at all. The way we have really dominated pass first team is by making them pass-only teams. If we stop the run against Seattle and Rams - they have no chance.
It's disheartening to watch this team so easily shut down other teams run games, but then when the Marshawn Lynches come to town, they are getting upfield, running over guys, etc. The good news is that we have a good talent evaluator in Trent Baalke and a quality defensive line coach in Tomsula. We could go NT in round 1 and get a guy to develop to be Smith's replacement at DE. At the end of the day however, I hope they go BPA or do some draft day maneuvering to get the guys they want.
