Tank is my favorite. I read more about this draft before hand than I had in many years. I particularly focused on pass rushers as I thought that was our biggest need. Mulled the issue for weeks. Two or three days before the draft I finally decided that Tank was numero uno in my book in terms of pass rush ability. Despite the injury I preferred him to guys like Ziggy, Jordan and Mingo who were all fine prospects but overrated in my book as pure pas rushers. Even with the injury I thought of him as a high first round pick.
I liked Tank because he appears to me to be that rare players who can line up with his hand in the dirt and still rush the passer AND not be a negative factor against the run. He can play with finesse and power. I will throw a couple of names out of players who his style he reminds me of. Not saying he is as good as these guys but over time I can see Tank's game develop into a similar style. Justin Smith and JJ Watt. Physically strong players who can hold their ground and play with power and still put heat on the opposing QB. Again, I am NOT saying he is that quality of player NOW but I envision his style of play developing into something reminiscent of these guys. A three down lineman who never needs to come off the field and is potentially dominant.
