    That is right, and the other was to get Gocong.

      I thought we got a little more than that, but I could very well be wrong. Regardless, the team is looking pretty good in next year's draft.

        I agree, we have at least four extra picks when you include compensatories, and it could be as many as six.

          I fully expect Walker or Rayburn to be traded for our missing 4th now that Reagor is here. I don't think they can carry all of those DTs
          Wish List at 19:

          1. Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie
          2. Chris Williams
          3. Kenny Phillips
          4. Devin Thomas

            It is most likely Walker who will be traded, but it may be for a fifth, because he is getting up there in age and is truly a one-trick pony. He may hold a lot more value to a team that is looking for a pass-rushing DT. I'm pretty sure he has had the third most sacks of any DT in the last three years, or something like that. I know he is behind Warren Sapp, but I don't remember who is in second.

              I think its Kevin Williams.

                He is a run-stuffer. Him and Pat Williams are the best run-stuffing combo in the NFL. I don't think it was him.

                  Walker is up there, but he isn't third.

                  Kevin Williams is a good pass rusher as well, he's a pretty complete DT. Camp_Eagles is right, Williams has had about 20 sacks over the past 3 seasons while Walker has had 13. Rod Coleman, Rocky Bernard, Raheem Brock, and Laroi Glover in addition to Warren Sapp are above Walker. So unless I forgot someone he's seventh.

                    Maybe I was confusing it with something else, but I know it was reported that Walker had the third most sacks during some stretdch in time. It may have been the first few games of htis season or something like that. I heard it during one of the games, so I don't remember exactly.

                      I strongly disagree with that statement. Marcus Stroud and John Henderson are much more dominating. Kevin Williams is on par with both these guys, but Pat Williams is aging and can't really keep up. In reality, Pat Williams in his prime wasn't as good as Stroud and Henderson are now.

                        They are the best hands down.

                          Well, Williams and Williams are very good. The group in Oakland does a good job, as well. I'm also partial to the Steelers' Dline. However, Stroud and Henderson are both monsters and all-pro worthy every year. It is very hard to argue with their overall quality.

                            They both have been injured a lot the past few years, but I forgot about them, they are the best DTs at stopping the run, followed by the two Williams.
