I wanna see tape (if anybody has some, please give me the link) on Jenkins before I make judgement... kid's highly rated, but I really love what I've seen from Jordan.
on DTs, i like quick and explosive
excuse me for dreaming but to me star is head and shoulders above everyone else. he's not going to fall to where the pats will pick, but that is my type of dt. big, strong, explosive quick and has a nasty streak.
jenkins is good but a tad slow for me my taste. he'll be the 2nd dt pick up -- a top 15 i believe, maybe a top 10. i'd like him better if he went down to 340 and got quicker.
hankins, not my type. i just did not see anything that he really did well.
short is another dt i like. not as big (315 maybe) but quick and strong. he did well against nd, i thought. on my notes i wrote about a sack he made with under 14 in the 1st Q. i believe that was the game where i also saw him pursue the qb running to the far sideline and almost got to him. if the pats wanted to go 34, i thought he'd be perfect next to vw.
i have not watched my alabama recordings so can't say anything yet about their big boys.
Yes, Star Lotulele is a beast. I'm assuming he'll be gone in the top 5 to 10 picks. I'd be happy if they drafted Jenkins or Jesse Williams if DT is the route they go
