Without a good Nose Tackle it really won't matter how good McClain is or any middle linebacker - even our own - is.

I wouldn't have a problem taking Dan Williams at #12 if we are unable to trade down and acquire more picks. With all the top possible FA Nose Tackles most likely off the market - we could do worse than finding an anchor for our defense for the next 5 years. It would be a risk to wait until the later rounds and possibly see Cam Thomas and Fat Man Cody off the board. I'm definitely not as sold on Kindle as Mayock is - he had a great National Championship game; but there was a lot of other good talent on that Texas D (Earl Thomas, Rod Muckelroy to name 2 guys) that helped him succeed. That's why I feel Graham is a better option than him despite his size. He was the only player on that Michigan D (besides CB Donovan Warren) who was worth mentioning and he was dominant in a conference known for producing great Offensive Lineman. I still believe that if the WR position is not addressed in Free Agency or via trade (where art thou Anquan Boldin?) and Dez Bryant is available he could be the pick; if not - it comes down to Dan Williams, Earl Thomas, or the best available Linebacker (McClain, Graham, Kindle, Etc) provided we don't trade down.
