But he's an ENTIRELY different player. He's nothing at all like Watt or Smith. Bailey is literally much, much more like Watt or Smith.
You can (and most do) rotate your DL many different ways to show different looks and give guys a breather, but I think Poe and Powe are your NT rotation, and Powe could occasionally spell a DE as well. I think Poe is in the middle anytime he's in the game and I think he belongs there.
Pitty, Jackson, Smith, and Bailey are actually a reasonable rotation at DE. Draft a guy or two in the mid rounds to compete and move on. Defensively, this team is not that far away, and the problems it does have aren't in the front 3 anymore, IMO.
