    Dremont Jones

    This guy is a brilliant pick. Going to be an absolute force; I canít believe we got him in the 3rd. Heís probably going to contribute more than anyone this year despite Risner also being an animal and fant bring a freak. Look for him to be lights out day 1

    He might, but I would bet on Fant or Risner.

    First round talent - got him in the 3rd I just canít believe it. I bet heíll finish better than wolf by the end of the year. Thank goodness DT was insanely stacked this year. The Colts fans wanted him in the first and so did the Steelers. So pumped

    Fant and Risner will have little competition. Jones will be in a competition with Wolfe, Gotsis, Walker, Maybe Kerr and/or Harris. He will have to show that he can hold up in the run game before he will be an every down player. I wouldn't count on him beating out Wolfe. Wolfe is stronger, and I think, more athletic. I think Jones is quicker but I don't think that is enough to outplay Wolfe his rookie year. Maybe next year though.

    I agree with your thoughts here. I do also agree that Jones is a beast, but you've got the right thought. Jones has a lot of veteran competition. Fant and Risner don't. They are basically going to win their jobs just by showing up healthy. It's going to take them playing very poorly to not see significant play time. Jones, despite all his abilities will likely be a rotational player this year, starter next year.

    If he comes to camp and balls out. Do t be surprised if we release Wolfe. Dmac heard some chatter at practice that Wolfe might be on the bubble. It would also save us a pretty penny.

    Wolf is more polished and savvy but def not more athletic. I bet him and fant see similar playing time per fant in a stronger learning curve of tight end in the NFL. Regardless, Jones is arguably a better player than Risner and will be surrounded by wolf Chubb and miller. His situation is better per receiving way less attention like fant will command.

    compare the combine numbers for Wolfe and Jones. Wolfe is better in all of them with more weight. Wolfe may have slowed down a little but he has added strength.
    I think Risner is the better prospect over Jones. Risner will probably start at one of the interior positions and has a good chance of keeping it for years. Jones is on the small and weak side of interior Dline players. He will be a rotational player, probably at a 3 technique in certain packages but he will have to get stronger to play a 4 or 5 technique well on a consistent basis.

    It's not like Jones has Ed Oliver measurables.

    I love the enthusiasm though. I will have no problem with the debate of ďwho was betterĒ in that group as long as they all have impactful years.

    I think all 3 will have significant roles.

    I do see Gotsis and wolf being the better run stoppers but Jones being the better pass rusher. Wolf will most likely Miss 3-4 games and Jones will fill in as a starter nicely.

    Wolfe and Gotsis are going to be the starters but Walker and Jones will rotate in and see plenty of game time. We need more production this year from our D-line we canít just rely on Chubb and Miller to get after the QB

    Yeah, if Wolfe gets released it would be financial, not football related. Depends what happens with the Chris Harris situation. It might come down to who they want more, Wolfe or Harris because you can't pay everyone.

    If Jones plays lights out its Walker who would be on notice. Jones will compete opposite Wolfe and switch inside on nickel just like Walker.
