Also wouldn't mind adding Chris Jones for a KC reunion with Houston knowing full well what Jones is capable of creating pressure on QBs but not so much help in the run game. Figure Jones will get around 21m/year if he does hit the market.
However I would like to see the Colts look at NT/LDT Javon Hargrave ((Steelers) who can do both jobs attacking QBs and stopping the run. Hargrave should be a cheaper option commanding around 15m/year. Can not see the Steelers having the cap space to resign Hargrave at this point in time. Add someone like Gallimore in Round 1 of the draft and our DL has greatly improved over last year's unit.
Another high target FA wouldn't mind adding to replace Walker in the middle is Cory Littleton who would help in our run game. Littleton will more likely be looking to get a 17m/year contract. Am curious how well he can play switching from a 3-4 base LILB to a pure MLB in a 4-3 base and continue to be dominant?
Steelers are in a worse cap crunch case and need to be within 30% of CBA resigning players this year. NT/weak-side Javon Hargrave would help part of our DL issue and is better vs the run than Chris Jones and would cost less to obtain in FA.
By all calculations on team-based needs Brown and Kinlaw should be draft early leaving Gallimore available for us to select in Round 1. Autry is our weakest DL and biggest disappointments this past season. Gallimore in college has a history of forcing a fumble or two, getting to QBs and even been credited with PBUs.
Houston was a great FA addition at weak-side and continues to play strong be it a 3-4 or 4-3 base defense. In Round 2 I would like to see us address our SS or even TE but would not mind adding more depth on the edge with Jonathan Greenard (Florida). Greenard would help add depth to our weak-side rotating with Houston who is a FA after the upcoming year. Enjoyed watching Greenard's game tape vs Miami and him punching the ball out. Maybe it was the turnover chain motivation but the kid is good FFs and defending passes. Just the awareness to not only make game tackles but mental aspect to look for ways to create turnovers at the same time playing full speed has Greenard on my radar to pick. Greenard should hear his name called early in Round 2.
The other edge player who has caught my eye as of late is the Michigan State walk-on Kenny Willekes. Willekes insanely high motor and ultra-competitive played both weak/strong side with success FFs and PD. Willekes I figure will go Rounds 2-3.
Adding and upgrading our IDL to force more inside pressure on QBs will help our edge players when the QB gets flushed out of the pocket.
