Dorsey could fall?

But would we want him?

Glenn Dorsey-DL-Player Mar. 2 - 12:44 pm et

LSU DT Glenn Dorsey reportedly has "several injuries" team doctors are concerned about, not just his tibia fracture from 2006.

The tibia fracture is believed to have lingered with him into last seasons. NFL teams are also looking at his back, right leg, knee, and ankle. It seems very possible that Dorsey will fall out of the top five picks in April.

If any of this is true we don't need the heartache draft Balmer or Moore or Walker in the 2nd round.

Golf and sex are about the only things you can enjoy without being good at them.

I think if he is there we take him. His reward is worth the risk.

Re: Dorsey could fall?

No offense, but you're an r-tard if you don't take Glenn Dorsey at #10. Before he got illegally chop blocked, the guy was the best defensive player in the country, hands down. And I don't care about the tibia fracture, he showed that it didn't bother him at the beginning of the season.

Re: Dorsey could fall?

I am all for trading down a bit for extra picks but if Dorsey is at 6 or falls more then I'd say GO GET HIM!!! We need a dominate pass rush. You do that by creating double teams!

Yep. A platoon of Hollis or B. Young beside Dorsey and Grant and Smith lined up alone on someone would be just what the doctor order vs. the rush and the pass. Vilma will only be productive if we can keep lineman off him.

Re: Dorsey could fall?

actually if he falls out of the top 5 then it is very likely that he will fall to us at 10 because picks 6, 7, and 8 are all teams that run the 3-4 Defense.. #9 cincy would be the best bet to take him but they just lost Justin Smith to the 49ers and they are believed to be switching to a 3-4 and could be looking to replace that DE or taking a rush LB like vernon gholston

Re: Dorsey could fall?

It would be a tough decision, even though I don't like taking a player out of LSU. Dorsey reminds me of Jimmy Kennedy.

I wouldn't put it past the Pats to snag him up either. Thats why if he is at 6 I would pull the trigger on a trade with the Jets.

Re: Dorsey could fall?

I hate trading up in a draft. I'd rather stand pat and get the BPA on defense. I'd be content with a CB or Keith Rivers personally. I think Ballmer is a reach here. Trading down however is something very attractive, even if it is adding picks to next year's draft.
