I like Rhodes for several reasons, not the least of which is his size...he'd matchup well against the bigger WR's we face just about every Sunday. A guy that size who can run that well is hard to find. Switching positions, a WR I'm very impressed with is Robert Woods from USC. Saw him play and he was impressive...seeing him master the drills and catch everything in sight didn't do anything to disuade me from liking him a lot. He's got his explosion back after being hampered by ankle injuries during the season. As for DL, I'm not all excited about either Hunt or Datone Jones...the former's still very raw and personally I wouldn't spend a 1st rd pick on him. Jones is a very good player, but not the size I think we need. Instead, I'd opt for Jesse Williams, Sylvester Williams, or Jenkins. Hankins is still a beast, although he ran a very slow 5.31 X 40. We need size, strength and versatility...if I read another post or article about getting this NT or that, I think I'll scream. As evidenced by Sopoaga's 30% or so snaps played, we don't need a freakin' NT...we need bigs who can play anywhere on the DL. Lack of same cost our defense dearly when JS got hurt. No mas! I'd also include a FA in the mix...Randy Starks would work very well. Cap space is freed up as soon as Alex is traded.
Right on! +1
For those that think we don't need a NT because Sopoaga only plays 30%, you trippin!!
If we had a Haloti Ngata type player, or Vince Wilfork type player, he would play way more than 30% and be worth his weight in gold by what he would do for our legendary LB core
EDIT-- Granted, I named two NT that do play anywhere on the line
