Which DE prospects do you like?
 
Doesn't matter which round really, but there seem to be quite a few good 3-4 DE prospects out there. Some of note:

Datone Jones UCLA
Sylvester Williams UNC-local Missouri kid too
Kawann Short Purdue
Brandon Williams Missouri State
Shariff Floyd Florida
William Gholston Michigan State

Any DE prospects you would like us to take a look at from round 2 on?

Oh and anyone who brings up an LSU DL or the Utah DT will be negged by me. :D

Sheldon Richardson.

And more Sheldon Richardson.

O.city 02-06-2013 04:49 PM

Richardson from MU, but he won't be around near that long. I doubt Floyd will either.


The DT from Joplin had a good SR bowl, might be a good late rounder. I like Gholston alot, same with Floyd.


Williams would be a great get.

Sharrif Floyd

O.city 02-06-2013 04:58 PM

Don't think there is anyway Floyd is available in the 2nd, but if he is, yeah.

I'm a little torn on that pick. There should be great CB's there and great DT prospects.

I too love Sheldon Richardson, though I severely doubt he'll make it out of the top 15, maybe not even out of the top 10.

I'm a really big fan of William Gholston. 6'7" 280 lbs who is really strong with an attitude. Could probably get him with our 3rd round pick. He has the body to put on weight too. Long long arms as well.

I'm concerned that he didn't really improve over the last 2 years, and he never really rushed the passer very well.

Devin Taylor.

Though he's top heavy and has chicken legs so that scares me a little bit.

But if he can add some strength and weight (15-20 lbs) then I think he can be a steal.

Hoover 02-06-2013 07:03 PM

I'm fine with anyone as long as their not from LSU.

Yeah he did have a few problems. I wouldn't be shocked to see us take a DE with our 2nd round pick because the value for them goes way down after the 2nd round where CB is extremely deep.

RunKC 02-06-2013 08:05 PM

But to be honest I want us to bring in a FA DE to start like Chris Canty. Rotate guys this year why we build the roster up.

Saccopoo 02-06-2013 11:07 PM

Joe Kruger, Utah; 6'7", 280 lbs.

Brother of current Ravens DE/LB Paul Kruger. Led the Utes in sacks in 2012.

Outside of the top guys, a lot of the 3-4 DE's this year are 'meh' for me. If we don't take Floyd, Richardson, Hankins, or Hunt at the top of 2 (most of them I expect to be gone in rd 1) then I'm not excited over a lot of the later round guys.

For the later rounds I like a lot of the corners, ILBs, and safeties much more.

Agreed. Very weak 3-4 DE class aside from the top few who will be gone in the 1st.

I do personally believe DE is the second greatest need on this team due to Dorsey and Jackson most likely being gone, but you can't force it.

CB and S are both stacked so hopefully the defensive picks are made on the secondary.

Frosty 02-07-2013 08:24 AM

Datone Jones. A 3-4 DE that can actually rush the passer.
