Baake really failed in the draft because he could have gotten us some quality d linemen but instead we got a couple of stiffs who cant even dress for games.
In order to do as you guys suggest, we would have had to use our 1st rounder to take one of the following:
Instead of taking Jenkins, could have taken:
Derek Wolfe, 6-5 295 lbs - started as DE for Broncos in a 4-3 - taken 36th
Kendall Reyes, 6-4 300lbs - backup DE for Chargeers in 3-4 - taken 49th
Jerell Worthy, 6-2 300lbs - backup DE for Packers in 3-4 - taken 51st
Devon Still, 6-5 300lbs - backup DT in Bengals 4-3 - taken 53rd
Or instead of taking LaMike, we could have taken:
Mike Martin, 6-2 306lbs - backup DT in Titans 4-3 - taken 82nd
John Hughes, 6-4 300lbs - starting DT in Browns 4-3 - taken 87th
Akiem Hicks, 6-5 318lbs - backup DT in Saints 4-3 - taken 89th
Brandon Thompson, 6-2 310lbs - back up DT in Bengals 4-3 - taken 93rd
Its not like we missed out on any D-Lineman doing well this year. Only Derek Wolfe is making an impact.
