I have to say, I was very impressed with Carlos Dunlap in the Sugar Bowl last night. Makes you wonder if the Alabama game might have been closer if he had played. BB gave some rare praise to Mario Williams this week in an interview. He really seems to gush about guys like Williams and Julius Peppers - 6'6" guys with the size (270-290 lbs.) and athleticism to do rare things for defensive linemen. It makes me wonder whether, if Dunlap declares and falls to the late 1st round, the Pats would take him and use him at either 4-3 DE or at the elephant. It's hard to imagine getting a guy with his talent late in the 1st round, and he could still go top 15, but it's a least a possibility right now. What do people think: 1. Would Dunlap, playing around 270 lbs. rather than 290, be able to play the Willie McGinest elephant role for the Pats? How good could he be in that role vs. as a pure 4-3 DE? 2. Is Dunlap suited to the 5-technique? 3. Do you see BB being interested in Dunlap if he falls, given his reputation for inconsistency and his recent DUI?
