    OPINION Defensive Tackle!

    If Randy Starks were to become a free agent, who would be against drafting someone like Star Lotulelei or Jonathan Hankins? Either one fits well in the 4-3 and would be great alongside Soliai.

    Note: We'd probably have to trade up to get one of these guys, but they are at the top of a stacked DT class.

    This is the absolute last position we need to use a first round pick on, let alone trade up.

    I think the plan would be to move Odrick to DT and grab a solid pass rushing DE. Isn't Odrick better suited for DT anyways?

    Not sure why people think you just slide odrick over and problem solved. So the plan at dt, is to roll with randall odrick and soliai??? What if soliaia bolts after next year when hes a free agent?

    If dt is bpa at 12, than take it. Star @12, is a pretty damn good pick.

    Too many people here assume that we draft a wr or cb regardless of value @12.

    This isnt getting fixed in one year. Piss on ireland all you want, its a new offense and defense with new coaches, your looking to improve next year, and we got.guys that dont fit and need replaced.

    Its not like we draft a wr and cb in the draft and suddenly we are the.favorites to win the division.

    We are looking for more than improvement next season, we're looking for playoffs. Perhaps spending a first round pick on a WR/CB won't make or break us, but i can confidently tell you what were working with now won't cut it next year. Since DT is Odrick's more natural position, the plan should be to slide him inside and pencil Vernon to start on the outside at the moment. You can build depth in the middle rounds and you should when you have such blatant holes such as WR.

    Thank you for understanding and not assuming I'm one of Ireland's butt boys. This draft is stacked at DT, and with 29 year old Starks contract expiring and 29 year old Paul Soliai's expiring next year, it'd be smart to invest at the position.

    Besides, all the areas where we need playmakers (WR, TE) are reasonably thin in talent this year, so there's no point reaching on a player. I'm not ready to reach for Eifert at 12, let alone Keenan Allen or Tavon Austin.

    Another point, look at the Giants. At the 2010 draft did they run with their already solid D-line, or did they take Jason Pierre Paul because he was the BPA?

    That might be an excuse if this wasn't his fifth year. Also, elite talent transcends systems. We have very little elite talent.
