    I've grown into quite the roth fan over the last few weeks, and i think he's closer to 280 righ tnow, and even though he's mostly known for being a pass rusher, i've read that he's strong against the run. I know he still isn't the prototype size for a 3-4 DE, (and i'm not even gonna consider him as an OLB), but it wouldn't hurt my feelings if we got him, i like how intense he is. I read that in practice he once took robert gallery down and ripped off his facemask, we'd get to see them battle twice a year!

    IMO, Roth would be a very good pass rushing DE from a 4-3, but if we are looking for a pass rushing OLB for a 3-4 Ware would be a pleasant surprise. The best comparison I heard was Mel Kiper describe Ware in a chat as VERY similar to Peter Boulware.
