Sorry if this thread is redumbnant, but I hear this draft is loaded with DL prospects, and with the very likely chance we take one in the 1st (and probably 2 early) I'm just looking to get some of your guys' lists of the Top 10 or so, guys you like/don't like, who fits our scheme best, etc. so I can begin keeping an eye out for these characters.

Thanks in advance!

Yes, to piggyback on this could I get your guy's opinions on DL Chris Jones? Is he a potential Muhammad Wilkerson type?

Could be Mo Wilk, could also be Jerel Worthy. Very raw but has all of the tools of a Pro Bowl DL, needs some coaching up & needs to be more consistent.

I haven't watched him at all, I was just struck by his measurements: 6'4", 34.5 inch arms, huge hands, same combine measurements as Wilkerson.

Definitely different body type than Worthy.

I'm crossing all fingers and toes that Billings makes it to Green Bay's pick.

To clarify, I wasn't comparing him to Worthy as a player, I mentioned Worthy to signify how big of a bust he could be.

This is part of why I started the topic. I believe this is a guy that someone here absolutely hates, but I can't remember why.

It seems every mock I look at in the draft forum has a different combination of big men going throughout the 1st and 2nd rounds. Is there a consensus top big man in this draft?

Not from anything I've read. Bosa and Buckner might be a hair above the rest, but then you have Billings/the crazy Ole Miss kid/Robinson/Reed/Rankins. I myself like Rankins and Billings the most, RN is off our board, and then Robinson/Reed/Butler/Clark offer similar skillsets IMO. Day one value against the run but not a ton immediately in pass rush. I think Reed offers the most potential of that next group, then Butler.

I'd be ecstatic with Billings, Rankins, or Reed, to be honest. I think Raji returns after a year or two like McCarthy alluded to this week, but those three offer a lot of value at 27.

I would be very leery of counting on a Raji return in 2017.

What type of shape would he be in 12+ months away from playing football?

He may want to return, but i would venture his market would be pretty cold and the contracts likely not worth him investing the time and energy to make it back to playing shape.

Just my thoughts on that.

To me, I think you need to separate them as fatties and smallies or whatever Waldo referred to them as.

For our draft slots

1) Vernon Butler
2) Andrew Billings
3) Jihad Ward
4) Javon Hargrove
5) Hassan Ridgeway
6) Matt Ioannidis
7) DJ Reader

Top 4 - rounds 1-3 (starter)

Bottom 3 - rounds 3-5 (depth)

We will need to double dip to get rotation depth so versatile lineman are the key to stay on the field at all times
