Honestly I'd rather just re-sign Gosder and draft the best talent available, rather it be an interior OL, DB, or DE.

I think Lewan is overrated, but other than that I'm good with the mock for now.

Hell no to Mathieu. He's the last guy we need here. He isn't even that good of a CB anyways, he would have been at best a 3rd rounder and thats without the character concerns. Combine that with a year off and he's just not attractive at all.

I didn't find him attractive either. That whole blonde mohawk thing, yuck.

I think Bush will get more than 2 years 12 million but he would be a nice addition and give us arguably a better version of what we had with Best.

Don't like Lewan at 11 at all. Just don't think he's that good.

Id be upset with Lewan at 11 in all honesty, Eric Reid would be a nice addition.

I like the signing in Bush, although after his spell with Miami will get a more lucrative contract than what you suggest, Smile

I like the Bush idea, I wouldnt think of him coming here but in reality he does fit what were looking for. Still, I think he rather stay in Miami beach and party it up

If we take an OT, ill crap a brick.

Honestly if we take a player it needs to be BPA on defense. I do not care if we get a DT, if thats the case, we can move Suh to end.

Suh dominated today at DT, yet we wanna switch him to an entirely different position and probably ask him to change his body composition? Rolling Eyes

We need to accent his talents, and provide some help behind him. He's the proven talent, not some rookie DT who doesn't look like a fit in our 4-3 scheme anyway. Or are we expecting Schwartz to switch to a scheme he's never coached???

I watched John Simon on youtube today and love his motor but he is literally the last guy off the snap every play....I was suprised he gets that kind of production with how slow he gets off the line.

Not once did he say he wants to get a DT to move Suh, he said he wouldn't care. And, Suh probably wouldn't need to change his body composition, and even if he did, he'd just be asked to lose fat. Not sure why it's so catostrophic to you.
