Round 6 Pick 169

Following the idea of having a Seattle-like Defense, we need a Brandon Mebane on the D Line.  The idea of Rakeem is to have him be a rotational 3 tech DT to sliding down to a 1 tech DT in the long run.  He does a good job getting to the back field in stopping the run and has shown some pass rushing ability to do so.  With Corey Peters gone, Nunez-Roches could be an ideal project to keep a consistent pressure on quarterbacks.
