Tank was a steal in 2nd round, and so was Dial in 5th round.
Dial is so versatile, DE and NT. Tank should be ready to go, and provide better pass rush then Dobbs and Jerod-Eddie has been giving us.
I dont see where Hageman fits in, unless for some reason Justin retires, I dont see a DL picked early.
Tank really was a steal. Hes ridiculously explosive and powerful.
Mark my words.
Tomsula is going to turn Dial and Carradine into starters.
I watch alot of SEC football so naturally I get to see at least 6 Bama games. Dial is not explosive. Hes not slow though. We witnessed that first hand against the titans. He drew two no call holds. He uses his length, powerful base, and upper body strength to control olinemen. Tomsula is going to show him to work the oline into the backfield. He will demand double teams and he can keep the block off.
Maybe they see something in dobbs or tje. I dont. Both have glaring techinique issues. SobI woulsnt mind drafting a ray drew, ed stinson, taylor hart, easley or sutton but only at the rigt spot which isnt in thw first 2 rounds.
