Thread: Top 5 DT duos
07-06-2013, 09:18 AM #11Coach Leslie Frazier said he wants the first of the Vikings' three first-round picks in this year's draft to play in a rotation system with Williams, initially coming in to give the 32-year-old Williams a rest.
...the plan now clearly is for Floyd to play defeinsive tackle, with the rookie initially working behind Williams.

Without being too much of a homer, I truly believe by the end of this season, Williams and Floyd will be the best inside duo across the league. Yes, they are helped a lot by JA drawing a double team, but still they are going to be a force.

However, one last candidate.......Warren Sapp. Warpig or not? Before you answer....He played at about 300-315 lbs his whole career.Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.

Actually I would say neither was and that has been my point. you can have one heck of a DL without your warpig. I kinda like the results of that line when we didn't have one.

Which has more weight, Yours and Mayocks opinion, or the opinion of the majority of the teams in the NFL?
The Jets gave up quite a bit to trade up and draft Sanchez. Not sure I trust their judgemant. The Panthers? Not really much there to make me think they know what they are doing considering Gabbert is way more of a bust than Ponder and that they have spent multiple firsts on QB's in the past few years that may never pan out.

Just because a team didn't select a guy, doesn't mean they didn't have him highly ranked. I might mean that they guy didn't fit their scheme.
For instance, young Shariff, might have been graded pretty highly by all teams needing a 4-3 DT and and not as high as teams needing a 3-4 DT.
Then, the BPA concept be danged because they don't really follow it.....a team that had a need for a 4-3 DT might have had a higher need for a LT than a 4-3 DT and passed on him.
If you look at the teams that picked a DT, it seemed to me that they picked them according to what early rumors suggested they might be doing on defense this year (Jets (3-4 even though there was some early discussion this year about switching to a 4-3/Panthers, McDermott said they were going to play more 3-4 this year).
And if you look at what team needs were going into the draft, very few teams (Bronco's and they picked behind us so we won't know who they had higher Shariff or Williams) had DT as high as us on that list.
Long story longer, I see were you are going and it makes sense but it also makes perfect sense why a guy would slip if he was as highly touted as Shariff was.
