I don't expect it, but man I am really hoping for a big game out of Dial today. It would be amazing if a star was born this afternoon....we are so damn banged up on the D-line.

An elite nose tackle would go a long way in our division. We haven't had someone who can collapse the pocket in a very long time. Soap was a very good run stuffer and held the point of attack, but he wouldn't collapse a pocket. If the Niners are smart, we'd get someone that can collapse the pocket. Could you imagine a Aldon, Brooks on the edges with no pocket to step up into? Devastating.

being serious
I don't watch college ball, but doesn't Saban run a legit 3-4 defense?
Yeah Bama runs pro style ...both sides of the ball. No gimmicks, no frills

I don't watch as much college ball as I used to but it's just sad what Saban and Alabama do to mortal teams. Just sad.
Most Bama defensive and offensive linemen have been at least decent in the NFL. They have seven defensive tackles/nose tackles (including Dial) on active NFL rosters. Not to mention seven offensive linemen on active NFL rosters. Once you drill deeper into the numbers and look at the amount of SEC offensive and defensive linemen in the NFL on active rosters, it just gets ridiculous. I have no doubt Dial was playing against, and with the best defensive linemen at this collegiate level while he was at Bama. Keep in mind he is going up against a former teammate in Chance Warrmack.

This! The pressure is almost always there on the outside...we have to use MLB blitzes with Bowman to garner any inside pressure (step-up lanes) and that is very very effective b/c of the outside pressure.

I just wish those who use the we don't play the NT that much argument could see this. If we had a NT that was a force in the passing game, you would truly see a defense for the ages. I bet Carlos Rogers and Tarrell Brown would make All-Pro as well .

Yes, but I said "a Wilfork" as in a Wilfork type player.

Right. I'm sure we all agree. But, let's keep a good thought. Dial may end up being that kind of player and a real steal. He's got the size. He's taller than a Wilfork, but that doesn't mean he can't hold his ground against two blockers. The scouting report says he's good at getting low despite his height.

No doubt we hope he's a surprise steal but I don't see him getting too many opportunities right away unless J-E struggles against the run today. He will definitely be closely watched every snap he plays though.

He's supposed to be a great run stuffer, which is what we need. Lets remember that "Wilfork-type" players are extremely rare. Guys that can be both NT's but rush like DE's are Wilfork, Ngata, and this year Poe has broken out... but there are not many to even come out of the past few drafts. Guys like Atkins are more of a 4-3 DT, not that NT beast everyone is salavating for and their is an extremely high bust rate for those kinds of guys drafted early as well.
