As we all know, this may be the last year for Jason Ferguson, our NT that plays the most important role in the 3-4. We have to find his replacemant, and this may be the guy.

Vince Oghobaase

Very young, 21 years old. Big, mean NT that just loves contact. And he prides himself on stopping the run. Projected to go in the second round.

Tell me your opinions, and if you have better suggestions feel free to share them.

Well, for one reason, he provides great versatility. he can play DE and NT and is a great player off the bench. Another thing is he's known for getting tired easily. Bringing him off the bench keeps him fresh.

But your right we might end up starting him anyway.

Terrence Taylor. He's got the prototypical body for a 3-4 NT; low center of gravity and about 310 lbs. He's also very strong being a former state champion wrestler.

DT from Boston College B.J. Raji. The dude does not move. But all in all we need to get a few new players at the position, in the next few years. Iy probably will be a early pick for the next two years at least. In a 3/4 you can never have enough good NTs.

i was fixin to make this thread. we need to at least start combing out fergs replacement. i know we need more linebackers, secondary as well. but nosetackle is mandatory. we NEED it badly. fergie is a great nose. but my opinion is we need a bigger nose. i want my nosetackles to be at least 325 lbs. preferably 340-350 lbs. a young traylor would be great.

i watched the Alabama&Georgia game and that Terrence Cody is a beast....he was just absolutely unmovable in the middle,and he's in the 6'5'' to 6'6'' range in height i believe and he's like 360 lbs...he just might be a good NT in the NFL.

Either Taylor from Michigan this year or possibly Jeff Owens from Georgia next year. I wouldn't count out Randy Starks either, but like someone said earlier, I believe his best play is off the bench.

one thing to watch out with for Cody is he is pretty tall for a NT in the 3-4 if I'm not mistaken... Jamal Williams is 6'3, Casey Hampton is 6'1, Jason Feguson is 6'3, Vince Wilfork is 6'2, Kris Jenkins is 6'4, Jay Ratliff is 6'4, Shaun Rogers is 6'4, and Isaac Sopoaga is 6'2.

Most 3-4 NTs are a couple inches shorter than Cody (and those are the guys recognized as the best NTs in the NFL). If Cody measures in at the combine at 6'4 or under, he'll make a decent NT prospect, but at 6'5/6'6, he might be too tall because as a NT your job is to get leverage and at that height it would be extremely difficult for him to keep leverage and he could suffer from back problems.

And I'm not saying he can't do it, but if he's 6'5/6'6, he'll more than likely be a 3/4 end even at his weight.

Totally agree with that assessment....

Leverage and getting underneath the pads of the offensive lineman is the key to a good nose tackle....and being over 6' 3" tall makes it very difficult.

However, I think Cody would be best suited as an "under" tackle in a 4-3...ala Pat Williams, Ted Washington, Sam Adams, Tony Siragusa, etc...

Terrence Cody is a big guy...
Terrence Cody (http://www.rolltide.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/cody_terrence00.html)Defensive Line6-5/365Ft. Meyers, Fla. (Gulf Coast C.C.)but i see ur point about NT in a 3-4 defense needing to be a lil shorter so they can get good leverage...

I like the idea of taking a Nick Saban coached NT.

Terrence Cody is a beast, but like chambersWI said, to tall. Right now, Terrance Taylor looks like he could be the best NT coming out in this draft. Or maybe someone like B.J raji because Terrance Taylor is projected to go in the first round.
