In the final part of the National Football Postís position analysis, we take a closer look at the nationís top 3-4 defensive prospects. Every year, more NFL teams are in need of unique 3-4 position players, so letís break down the top guys at each spot.





3-4 DE



Jarron Gilbert, San Jose State (6-5, 288)
Tyson Jackson, LSU (6-4, 296)
Alex Magee, Purdue (6-3, 298)
Fili Moala, USC (6-4, 305)
Everette Pedescleaux, Northern Iowa (6-6, 305)
Zach Potter, Nebraska (6-7, 279)
Khalif Mitchell, East Carolina (6-5, 318)
Kyle Moore, USC (6-5, 272)
Matt Shaughnessy, Wisconsin (6-5, 266)
Pannel Egboh, Stanford (6-6, 276)


The top two five-technique defensive ends in this yearís draft are Gilbert and Jackson. Both are tall, long-armed linemen with good base strength and an ability to stack blocks on the outside. Gilbert is a better athlete and offers teams a much higher ceiling. Jackson reminds me a bit of former first-round pick Marcus Spears and will likely come in and start from day one ó but he doesnít offer as much upside.

Great picks! Except for the highlighted areas.
Or do you expect "Mr Glass" to play DE!?!?
That dude is as much a "franchise back" as OJ is innocent.
Your wasting picks, and DEN has 37 RBs which they just spent a sh!tload of $$ on.
As you pointed out by posting the article, the DEFENSE is the problem!
I notice alot of posters make comments about not really being excited about Buckhalter or Jordan, or Arrington or Gaffney. But that is irrelevent. they were signed in the offseason for a reason. The coaching staff thinks they are going to contribute to the offense, and in a big way. They would not have spent so much time and $$$$$$$$$ on so many offensive players.
Drafting more when the defense is HORRID only continues to hinder the defense and makes the team still suck no matter who is drafted on offense.
Just my 2 cents.
Now watch, DEN will draft crabtree and Moreno tommorow!~

LOL I'd have no choice but kick 2 puppys.

As far as Wells with 1b it is based simply on my personal opinon that he is going to be VERY special in the NFL of course that is my opinon.

I agree with anyone who is against a round 1 RB IF they dont think they will be special. Again I think Wells is agoing to explode on the scene thus my using a much needed pick on him.
