Unless Ellis or Dorsey falls a dt will not be drafted untill round two.

DT Trevor Laws Notre Dame. Coach O like fast guys. But not with the first pick. Third round maybe.

Trevor Laws blows, no offense QBREES9. I wouldn't want any part of that Notre Dame team, especially an undersized, overachieving defensive tackle who, what do you know, is just like Brian Young.

Husker's right, there isn't a DT worth taking in the top ten after Dorsey and Ellis. As a matter of fact I don't know if there's another DT in this draft that I would take in the first round after those two.

I don't know. I really hope the Saints don't think that signing a 14 year, 5'8" corner is going to solve their secondary problem. I'm wondering if they signed Glenn to be a mentor to whatever corner they take in the first. Hopefully. We need some new, young blood.

Really looks like it now after hearing we want to trade up with the Rams to get Dorsey.

trevor laws(6'304) is almost the exact same size as dorsey(6'1 297lbs), had a faster 40 and shuttle time, and performed at a similar level with out all the help dorsey had around him. i'm not going to say that laws is equal to dorsey at this time, but laws in the second round is a MUCH better value than trading multiple picks and/or players for dorsey.

dorsey: 5.12 40yrd dash
Year GP TKL TFL SACK
2004 11 18 2.0 0.0
2005 13 28 4.0 3.0
2006 13 64 8.5 3.0
2007 14 69 12.5 7.0
Totals 51 179 27.0 13.0

laws: 5.06 40yrd dash
Year GP TKL TFL SACK
2004 12 17 2.0 1.0
2005 12 33 3.0 1.5
