Donta Hightower/ Dontari Poe in the second?

Postby brad7686 » Thu Feb 23, 2012 11:41 pm

If for some reason we have a second round pick in the draft, and we don't have to use it on a qb, there could be some serious value there.

Hightower is the nastiest MLB in the country out of Alabama, weighs 260, decleats people constantly. He would fit a 3-4 perfectly.

Poe is a very athletic nose prospect from Memphis, weighs 330, the DT class is STACKED this year. They could go in all sorts of different orders, if he's gone maybe Brandon Thompson from Clemson? He'd probly be gone too but could also theoretically play nose.

Either of them would be great value picks in the early second.

Because Dontari Poe blew up the Combine running a 4.8 at 350 pounds there is 0 chance we get him in the 2nd unless we trade up from that pick by like....10 picks at least.

Poe will go in the top twenty picks. Maybe even top ten. You just dont come across good nose tackles too often. You can count them on one hand. Maybe even more rare then a franchise Qb. Anyhow I easily would take Poe if we cant get our QB or trade down.

Too much value and need at the NT position on a good amount of teams for him to not be gone by the end of the 1st. I see him on the Jets.

In my Mock Draft I have Dontari Poe going to the panthers at 9. :shock: ok, not really a shocker.

I agree that he will be gone by the first round. I now think he will go top fifteen. Cant see how any team will pass him up. Most every team can use a stout NT. Even those who dont play a 3-4 can still use him as a run stuffer up the middle.

If we lose out on RG3 and Luck Poe wouldn't be a bad consolation prize.

Yea, he's skyrocketed now. Hightower might be there though since he's a MLB who would best fit a 3-4. And would be a steal.

um ... guys - do you really think we're going to have a pick in the top 2 rounds of this draft

EXCEPT FOR THE MAN :lol:

I'm thinking we may not have a pick in the 2nd or 3rd rounds and that's fine with me :wink:

no worries at all about that
