If that is the read on Chris Long, why would we even consider Gholston who's smaller. Plus he's not a value pick at #2 and all the comments about a trade down are speculative. You need some team willing to trade up and it's not looking like the type of draft where teams are willing to do that.

    Go Rams!:r
    The scout that said that is either speaking about him moving inside, as a two gap DE, or is a moron and I can only hope he works for another team in the NFC West.

    Michael Strahan used to weigh 275 or so and was known as a bull rushing, strength based DE. Then a year or two ago he dropped to 255, added some speed and did you see him getting pushed around at all this year? No. He's still known as a strength DE. To say that Long needs to put on more weight to be a 4-3 DE is pure crap. I think he's right at where we'd want him and if he can keep his strength, then maybe even lighter like Strahan.

    I am officially for Gholston if Chris Long is gone. We NEED that DE now that Little may be cut...

    We have a solid OL if they stay healthy, we have NO DE at all.
