couple of dt's for later in the draft

I'm still hoping for castillo..but:

Anthony bryant
Strengths: Massive frame to clog the middle...Does an excellent job versus the run...Very strong and can hold his ground...Shows good technique and knows how to use his long arms to his advantage...Has a lot of experience.
Weaknesses: Won't provide much in the way of a pass rushing threat...Not a great athlete...Not fast or very quick...Out of shape and wears down late in games.
Notes: Would be an ideal fit as a two-gap nose tackle for a team running a 3-4 scheme such as New England, Pittsburgh or Houston...Not a glamorous player but can play a role.

hawthorne
Strengths: Has great size and big frame with long arms...Very strong up top...Has a lot of experience...Can be unblockable at times and almost forces offenses to devote two men to him...Can play the run as well as get after the quarterback...Has a good burst and good closing speed...Does a good job shedding blocks...Solid, reliable tackler.
Weaknesses: Has an inconsistent motor and can disappear for stretches...Doesn't have elite speed and quickness...Needs to get stronger in his lower half...Needs to get in better shape to play longer stretches...Still relies on his natural talent too much.
Notes: Probably a better prospect than Wendell Bryant was coming out of college...Erasmus James stole some of his thunder as a senior, but Hawthorne is still one of the top defensive tackles in this draft.
