Re: When the Saints Go "DT" Who Will It Be?

Cheap risk with possible high rewards once again i post
Terrance Knighton 6'3' / 336 / 26 - NT - Jags

I see Hicks as a 34 DE/NT

Draft i still think a OT is going to be priority #1 we need to solve this issue before the draft. I hope.

Look at 4th round for depth. OLB will be hard to find that late but there are some nice projects there.

This is going to be a fun off season and when the saints draft a CB or Wr in round 1 it will be even more fun

Re: When the Saints Go "DT" Who Will It Be?

We have a good NT on the roster... Bunkley anyone...?

He was rated out as the best run stopping NT when he played for DEN. He will be going back to his roots. We do need depth behind him but you dont draft for depth in the 1st 2nd or even 3rd rounds. We need a OLB opposite of Wilson that can be an impact player on day one.

For our first round pick I would love to see Dion Jordan 6'6 245...

Hahaha! I was just about to argue with you about drafting a maybe NT instead of buying one when I read your last sentence. Throw in a first round OL and I think you've nailed it.

Re: When the Saints Go "DT" Who Will It Be?

The Saints are actually looking pretty good at defensive tackle. Now that the base scheme has changed to a 3-4 the personell here looks a lot better. Brodrick Bunkley excelled at the nose position in Denver while they were running a 3-4. He is the prototypical nose tackle; will take up space, and clear out double teams leaving a man free. He is also only 6'2, at least that's what he is listed as. He will be able to get under many offensive linemen, making him harder to block.


Another guy that can fill in for this spot is Hicks. He is a massive guy, well over 300 pounds. His height would be an issue for me however, because for nose you want a guy with a lower center of gravity. He fits more as a 4-3 defensive tackles, but would do just fine as a filler at nose. His true potential is a plus for this defense, and that is playing Defensive End for the 3-4. Defensive ends in a 3-4 are normally much larger.

The idea of having a starting line consisting of Cam Jordan, Brodrick Bunkley and Akeim Hicks sounds great to me.
