Nink and jones? We need depth behind them. I don't see bequette making the cut this year and buchannon is still developing. Nink and jones played way too many snaps last year to be consistently effective rushing the passer. We need a guy or two to give them a breather. I also want a DT who can rush from inside.
We need some bulls in the middle of that D line, but speed off the edges we have in abundance. Nink, Jones, Buchanon at end, I haven't completely written off Bequette who played a role in special teams, Collins, Mayo, Arrington and Browner will all bring the heat.
Sure we may sign a vet at the minimum to rush the passer, not sure Allen is that guy or at that money.
I agree with both of you here. Not sure which position I would choose to add to first. I see good arguments for both positions.
Pressure up the middle has been missing for years until Kelly showed up, but then he went down...
As far as the edge goes, Nink is a one trick pony for the most part when it comes to pass rushing. He uses speed off the edge and displays a great motor, and sometimes throws in a bull rush and spin move.
Jones has more skills for getting back there, but still has to learn more technique.
In short these guys get tired at the end of games, and it would be nice to compliment them with a Jared Allen - or use Nink as the complimentary piece to get the others some breathing time. They need to play less and stay fresh.
As far as I am concerned we need a DT, and DE that can get to the QB. I hope Wilfork stays as we could use him and Siliga as the run stuffers. Chris Jones can give us some inside pass-rush, but I hope Kelly stays in that starting role.
