I want Bunkley

Postby Steve-O » Tue Feb 28, 2006 2:14 pm

The DT from FSU...I know DT isn't exactly a huge need but I want this guy...he's 6'1 309 lbs, ran a 4.95 40 and put the bar up 44 times...he's a friggin monster...

I personally would be willing to take all our needs and get them covered in FA and later in the draft to take this player...he's gonna be a monster in the NFL...

We may not get an opportunity to get him, since I suspect the Eagles may look really hard at him at #14. Bunkley would be a good player, but it would be hard to justify that pick when the team has such glaring needs elsewhere. Bunkley is not a run stopper and his natural weight is probably in the 280-290 range. He's also had a lot of leg injuries throughout his career, which probably means if he plays at 305 that will continue.

He's definitely the top pure 4-3 DT in this draft, but he's not such a force that I would go after him in Round 1. Also note that DTs often have just as hard a time as WRs in adjusting to the NFL, because so many of them are out of shape and relied on athleticism rather than technique in college. Few DTs have big impacts as rookies. Most DTs don't really hit their stride in the NFL until Year 2 or 3.

I know that DT isn't even close to a need for us, and I know we probably won't pick him, but none the less this kid is the best DT I've seen in a long time...

Did you see how quick his feet were at the combine?!?!?!?! He was a man amongst boys...
