    The problem with this scenario is that S. Ellis is barely 6ft. and weighs only 300lbs. He would get buried as a NT in the NFL. He looks to project as much as three technique tackle as Dorsey. There doesn't seem to be any quick answers for this dilemma if, as most expect, Chris Long is long gone.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Gholston is 6-4 264. 1 inch and 1 pould larger than Little.
    Long is 6-4 284. You can do the math.

    Gholston 40: 4.75
    Long 40: 4.80

    Gholston: 15.5 Tackles for loss 14 sacks 37 tackles
    Long: 19 tackles for loss 14 sacks 79 tackles

    Gholston has 22.5 sacks playing the last two years, Long has 21 playing the last 4.

    To be fair, Long played in a 3-4 until this year. Not much room for pass rushing from a 3-4 End. And yes, Gholston did manage 22.5 sacks over his last 28 game career, but 7 of those came from 2 games (Mich. & Wis.) this year. Again, I have to ask.......which Gholston is the real one; the monster at UM & UW or the decent End/OLB in the other 26 games?

    Exactly Bald, good call. I'm still chapped we passed on Cromartie for Hill.

    Gholston went up against Jake Long if that does anything for you.

    Exactly the point, Archer. He whipped Jake Long like a rented mule this year, but got shut out by lesser OTs at Youngstown St., Washington, Minnesota (2 straight years), Purdue, Michigan St. (2 straight years), Texas, Iowa, and Illinois (2 straight years). Not to mention last year, Jake Long shut him down....0 sacks and 1 solo tackle.

    If Gholston is the direction we go, I just hope this year's Michigan game was an indicator of his career and not just the highlight.
