And anybody who can't see the value in having a Nose Tackle like Poe that can play multiple techniques... same deal.
Dontari Poe was an absolutely terrific pick. One of the few that looks to be solid in the ***** era.
Powe is not the protypical run stuffer that I assume you are implying him to be with "no idea how the game has evolved comment".
His problem, from what I could see, in Romeo's scheme, is that he couldn't control his desire to penetrate, and wasn't able to maintain his gap responsibility within the scheme.
Powe is more athletic than his size would indicate, and is a good fit in an attacking 34 because of that athletic ability, and his ability to penetrate.
