You honestly believe we drafted Hughes because he could stop the run? The guy was a duel threat but if he couldn't get to the QB on passing downs no way would we have taken him in the first round. By the way Ricardo Matthews was that pick to stop the run in 2010 not Hughes. Matthews is now or backup NT yaa!
I think the main issue that I have is that it was a luxury pick when we had other pressing needs that could have been addressed. By in large though I didn't mind the pick as long as the other needs are addressed like another NT on the team.
We have like 5 three technique DT's on the team and one legit NT. I personally just can't understad that way of thinking. Its not like the base tampa 2 defense doesn't ask for NT depth. Even the one we have is mediocre at best.
Hopefully Polain gets another NT and all is well but the best time to have done that was in the draft and during the recent FA frenzy.
