Veteran Starter w/Big Long Term Deal
Jerry Tillery, DT, Notre Dame
I'm only looking at players who might actually be on the board at 32.
He's big, strong, athletic, stops the run and can rush the Qb.
Checks all the boxes for me at this early point.
I think he's one of the best pass rushing interior linemen in this draft. He's kind of inconsistent holding the point at times. Some games I think I'm seeing the next Seymour, and other games . . . well . . . he looks like he'd be run over in the NFL. I'm willing to gamble on his upside, though, if the Patriots think it's a fixable technique or conditioning issue.
