We rarely (almost never) keep more than seven d-linemen on the roster. Right now we have . . .
1. Justin Smith
2. Ray McDonald
3. Tank Carradine
4. Ian Williams
5. Glenn Dorsey
6. Quinton Dial
7. Tony Jerod-Eddie
8. Demarcus Dobbs
I think Dobbs is dead-man walking already, but even so if we add two d-linemen with high picks we're going to be pushing some talented two-player combo of Dial, TJE, Dorsey or McDonald off the roster.
I think this is one year too early to begin a D-Line make-over.
In my view we're already adding three young quality linemen in Williams, Carradine and Dial, none of which played significant snaps in 2013. This is our youth infusion. We can build on that in the 2015 draft . . . and maybe with one DL pick this year.
