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.
rskin72: Wonder who else was injured today. Schreff….

Carnack: Dunbar lost his mind
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:20 GMT -5
Carnack: still very much a WIP
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:44 GMT -5
rskin72: Yep....we are. But we need to beat Dullass and NY. The Fecals will be a tough nugget.
Oct 14, 2018 15:08:54 GMT -5
Carnack: we match up wel and play the eaglestough every year. Its teh Cowboys we have a hard time getting by
Oct 14, 2018 15:09:19 GMT -5
rskin72: AS still has some growing pains with his receivers. Just not totally in synch. And God only knows it seems like every team musters a rush against us
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:04 GMT -5
rskin72: Yea, I will agree with you about the fecals and turds....the Gits also seem to have our number
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:34 GMT -5
rskin72: Or KC's number to be specific
Oct 14, 2018 15:10:44 GMT -5
Carnack: we will at the least split with the boys and the giants this year, though I think we will sweep the giants..the Eagles are the best team in the division and we will have to bring our A game to beat them.
Oct 14, 2018 15:11:50 GMT -5
rskin72: And hopefully have some folks back from injury. Need to be at full strength....or close to it
Oct 14, 2018 15:12:33 GMT -5
Carnack: we just need to get this secondary some experience without losing....its obvious they are very raw
Oct 14, 2018 15:13:34 GMT -5
rskin72: we should sweep the Gits. Manning has looked bad. But he does have OBJ...and their rookie RB looks very good
