We would likely have to use our 2nd or third rounder(if were lucky) to get this guy..
DaQuan Jones, DT, Penn State Height: 6-3. Weight: 318. Projected 40 Time: 5.25. Projected Round (2014): 2-3. 1/11/14: In recent years, Penn State has produced a few good defensive tackle prospects in Devon Still and Jordan Hill. Jones is the latest tackle who could go on the second day of the draft. The senior impressed in 2013. He picked up 53 tackles with 11.5 tackles for a loss and three sacks. Jones has some quickness and pass-rush ability. He puts more heat on the quarterback than his sack total indicates.
Jones started next to Hill in 2012 and recorded 22 tackles with .5 sacks. Jones had eight tackles as a backup in 2011.

scary thing is, there's going to be a fair amount of good players that are available who are going to drop, thanks to the glut of underclassman coming in and you never know who may fall and who is going to be addressing what need. In a way, it's a great year to have a bunch of weaknesses because it's a pretty good bet, that there should be someone around to help fill it. The big issue/question is, what do the coaches perceive to be our most glaring need and is the position stocked with good candidates, from everything I've seen, there's a good number of defensive players available and imho, we have needs everywhere, DL, LB and defensive backfield. We should be able to find help there, although if someone like Lee drops, I wouldn't be shocked to see us take him.
