Awesome defensive tackles


Recommended Posts

My IDP league requires one DT, two DEs, two LBs, one CB and one S

Most IDP rankings I have seen only list DLs, and these naturally focus on DEs who are bigger point producers. So which are the DTs to go after? My league lists some 3-4 DEs as DTs, should I go after these guys, or are 4-3 DTs a better bet.

thanks!

DT are pretty unpredictable because very few are consistent at tackles and/pr sacks. Look for guys who are in a 4-3 and described as under tackle, 3 technigue or pentrator.

Names (some are just darn good versus under tackles)

Kevin Williams

Cory Redding

Kelly Gregg

Vonnie Holliday

Rod coleman (if healthy)

Repost from another thread from July.

Because so many teams rotate their defensive tackles, it's hard to reliably project DTs. I tend to put these guys into tiers in no particular order for the most part.

Two way tackle, sack/big play potential

Cory Redding

John Henderson

Vonnie Holliday

Kevin Carter

Warren Sapp (risky)

Solid, but not sexy all-around players

Kelly Gregg

Kevin Williams (capable of first group production)

Brian Young

Fred Robbins

Barry Cofield

Vince Wilfork

Marcus Tubbs

Nice 2007 upside

Darnell Dockett (could stay designated as DT but get some 3-4 DE snaps)

John McCargo (should get a lot of snaps as Buffalo's 3-tech)

Domata Peko (now starting; 21 tackles and 3 sacks in limited time last year)

Turk McBride (will get DE snaps early, then 3-tech after)

Adam Carriker (unless he gets mostly NT snaps)

Careful of the hype

Tommie Harris (nice run of sacks, but not really a boxscore guy)

Tommy Kelly (late word has him rotating more than previously expected)

Could be good if healthy

Rod Coleman (watch Babineaux if he isn't)

Marcus Stroud

Cornelius Griffin

That is totally helpful. Any word on Jamal Williams of San Diego?
