I like Wootton a lot. I haven't seen much of Jared Odrick.
I see Clayborn strictly as a 4-3 DE.
I like Wooten a lot as a 3-4 DE, provided he is healed from his injury.
I see several DE prospect that fit the Patriot type DE's and could potentially be drafted by us:
1.) Wooten (If healthy)
2.) Oghobaase (If BB does pick a kid from a losing program)
3.) Odrick (Tough against the run)
4.) Carrington (Developmental small school candidate from Arkansas State, but plays the run well and can get after the QB through double teams.)
Many would include Carlos Dunlap in this group, but I still think that if we drafted Dunlap and got his head screwed on straight and dropped his weight to the 270-275 pound range, he would be a great 3-4 OLB and still run in the 4.5 to 4.6 range.
The problem is that he grew up in such a nasty terrible place in North Charleston SC, and still hangs around with a nasty posse; that getting him to drop the bad habits and posse may be a lost cause. (IE: Pacman Jones)
