Stephen Tuitt, DT, Notre Dame – Tuitt can play any position on the line and has the speed as well. The only concern is how well he has recovered from his hernia surgery. Tuitt would add to the defensive overhaul nicely and with Barr in the 1st this would instantly make Dallas’ DL much better than it was in 2013. I think they will try him at both DT and DE in training camp and like Barr they could move him around to confuse the QB and allow for more pass rushers on the field at a time.
At this point in the draft it came down to Tuitt and Crichton. I went with Tuitt because of the upside he has and the ability to play both positions. I would also look to see if someone like Jernigan or Shazier has dropped. In this mock they have not, but come the draft who knows what will happen.
