    Chances Ezekiel Ansah Falls to #12?

    Some mock drafts have Ansah falling down to #12 or even further! Werner has passed him up in many mocks, so with that in mind, what would you do if he was there at #12? Is he a no brainer to you or too raw of a pick? Here's a link from CBS Sports Mock Drafts, and Brugler has him going to us at #12 and Kirwin has him falling all the way to #19 to the Giants (how fitting would that be?).

    http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/mock-draft

    I think the front office is targeting a DE with the first pick, but are doing a careful job of not sharing that with the media, hence visits by Dee Milliner and swirling rumors about offensive tackles at #12. My ideal situation, and a situation I think the front office has in mind, is to draft a DE at #12 and rotate them in with Odrick while rotating Vernon in with Wake this season. Next season, one of Soliai/Starks is kept and the other leaves, allowing Odrick to move inside to his natural DT position. They have been moving more towards a fast, blitzing, zone defense this off-season with the Grimes, Wheeler, and Ellerbe moves. So, in 2014 we would look like:

    LE: Wake/Vernon
    DT: Odrick/Martin
    DT: Starks/Randall

    If Ansah is there at #12 I think we have to take him. While left tackle is a big new as well as cb I think DE might us just a important as LT and more important than cb. We need to put someone opposite wake. He can't do it by himself and he's getting up there in age too.

    If both were healthy I'd agree. Carradine is just 4 months off ACL reconstruction, so let's wait and see.

    I would rather take a chance on Carradine coming back from his injury than picking Ansah. I see nothing special in his game to make him worth picking at 12.

    I have absolutely no clue why carradine gets talked up.

    and ansah will get picked by a team who knows they can teach whatever he lacks, which only seems to be experience. sounds like tannehill doesn't it?

    and btw, we have a really nice DL coach.
    1. La'el Collins G/OT (Trade down)
    2. Jay Ajayi RB (Trade down)
    2. Phillip Dorsett WR
    3. Arie Kouandjio G
    4. Erik Rowe CB
    5. Jeff Luc ILB
    5. Dezmin Lewis WR
    6. Ledarius Gunter CB

    More athletic, has the better track record, and everyone is pretty sure of his age

    It's not just about coaching it's just that he doesn't look like anything special, to me anyways, to be considered a 1st rounder. Can't believe people actually compare him to JPP.
