Yeah I could certainly see that, though I think there are fewer fits for us along the interior. That said, Raekwon Davis fits like a glove and it wouldn’t shock me if we took him in the 2nd.
But all of the other 2nd tier guys - Blacklock, Madubuike, Elliott, maybe Gallimore (he just went 89th in Dane Brugler’s 7-round mock, and that guy’s generally plugged-in pretty well, so maybe he’s not as high on NFL boards as he is on fan boards) - they don’t fit us as well. I like Blacklock the most but I just don’t know if he holds up well enough against the run to be an option.
DaVon Hamilton is a guy I like but only in the 3rd or later, he’s just too big of a risk as a one year starter but man, what a really good year it was (but why didn’t he start until this year?). He fits us well and we coached him in the Senior Bowl, so he could be a guy we looked at. He’s getting 2nd round buzz now though, and that’s too rich for my blood.
A guy I like later is Bravvion Roy, a real NT from Baylor. I far prefer him as a NT to Leki Fotu, who’s a much better pass-rusher but has major leverage issues. Roy doesn’t have those issues.
