    Red Bryant - DT - Texas A&M

    Anyone have any updates on how this kid has been performing during Senior Bowl practices? I believe he is about 6′5 329 lbs, could be a good fit for NT in our 3-4 Def.

    Where is he projecting? Is our 2nd rounder too early? Can he be had in the 3rd?

    I've only seen him about twice, but nothing really stood out from him. He really doesn't get his pads very low or play very strong. I don't like him as a 3-4 NT, especially in the second. I'd probably take a flier on him in the 5th or 6th though.

    I read somewhere that Bryant should be getting looks by 3-4 teams from what he is showing at the senior bowl practices. Not much of a pass rusher but is a big body that takes up alot of space and cannot be moved by one lineman. Can push guys back well. Maybe a 3rd rounder where he would provide good value. Better value then say taking Ellis at 6 IMO.

    Just the thought of a player like this in green and white makes you get juiced up for the draft and free agency. we are so desperate for someone to actually clog the middle of that d line

    Amen. We need some size up front! Time to start winning the war in the trenches! I would love a guy like Balmer as well for DE. He added some serious weight as of late. Best 3-4 DE prospect in this draft. Good grab in the first if we can trade down.

    Glad you started a thread on this kid CM, I was just looking at this last night. He seems like the only legitimate 3-4 NT prospect this year. Though there seem to be some real question marks about him. I'd really like to hear what people think about him as a possible 2nd or 3rd round pick for us.

    You don't want to press for need but we REALLY need a guy that fits the bill for that position. It'd be a huge plus if he fit the bill for us. It's tempting to want to reach for him, maybe a trade down to the mid 2nd, as the NT position is the fulcrum for the entire defense in our scheme.

    I wonder if the fight clears up some of the "does he have the attitude" questions

    Nice value at the top of the third. Jets need size. I don't think it's out of the question to play Bryant at DE, refer to Ngata with the Ravens, Look at Olansky with the Chargers. Succesful 3-4's have big guys upfront. Granted Red is not much of a pass rusher, penetrate 3 steps and get your hands up at 6'5.

    I think he'd be better off slimming down a bit and playing DE then playing the Nose. I'm not convinced he can hold an NFL double team as he plays too high for my liking. 3rd Round talent who will probably get selected Mid 2nd due to being a DT.
