    Those are some great high lights. He looks great there. But, Fisher likes his DT to be tall (he's not). I also wish he was a bit bigger to help with run defense, which is incredibly important in our defense.

    The play at 1:01 where he tackles the RB and the QB was just fantastic.

    I'm so freaking happy right now. I can't wait to see what Williams and Fish will do moving these guys around on the front.

    Best thing about this pick is watching Rams Talk cry about how terrible he's going to be because he's too short and it was dumb to pick him over Manziel.

    None of those guys know much of anything about football so it's got to be pretty humorous.

    I found a spot for Donald on our defense and it's in Colin Kap's and Mr. Wilson's faces.

    Kirwan said yesterday that if Donald plays next to a good DE he'll average 10-12 sacks a year because singled up he can't be blocked. LOL, wonder what he thinks he can do between Quinn and Long???

    What a great pick for the Rams.

    Kirwan is right. When teams didn't double Donald, he blew up their offensive game-plan.

    It's crazy, because Donald might actually have quite a few plays where he's completely unblocked. Teams can't afford to give all of our guys that kind of attention. Someone is getting a favorable mismatch. Quinn and Donald will toast single teams all day, Brockers will manhandle a single team with his strength, and Long's high motor requires him attention at all times.

    When you need 11 minutes and 30 seconds for a one season highlight video for a DT, I'm gonna take a wild guess and say that dude is pretty damn good.

    OK, this might have been posted already... but the play where Donald tackles BOTH the running back who had taken the handoff AND the quarterback at the same time because... well... why not? I just fell in love with this new toy.



    ...and great minds think alike. :)

    This is easily going to be my favorite pick of the draft!

    I've seen every game this cat has played at Pitt and he's a rediculous talent AND moreso with our DL to boot!

    The play at 1:10 in this video where he tackled BOTH the Qb and RB is flat out ridiculous!

    Great call. I became a believer over the past few months and was totally geeked that we were able to draft him
