It doesn't matter because we are trading up to take Sammy Watkins anyways. ;-)

we're in deep poo with the OL situation as it ia and we're pretty close to being in it in regards to WR and contractually we're in deep poo because of our two DEs that make it near impoasible to bring in good talent in the secondary and hurt our chances to sign other key players to long term deals.

deal with future potential needs after you've taken care of the needs on your plate right now.

Disagree. That's the kind of thinking that would have not picked Kuechly.

I didn't even know about this guy until 10 minutes ago, but his highlights remind me a lot of Kuechly's college highlights. Looks like a mix of TD and Kuechly.

If you have the chance to draft a future star, you do it.

No. Jon Beason was returning from a very serious injury and we did not know if Thomas Davis could play a full season healthy. Completely different scenario. Two different GM's.

then what do you do about OL and other big areas of need? hope that the table scraps you are left with doesn't poo the bed?

You act like you know how the draft will unfold. You have no idea who will be there and who won't.

Also, let's not forget one of our LB's is still playing on a knee that has been surgically repaired three times. If for some awful reason TD went down, we would be in some deep poo.

With that logic we should draft a RB

considering TD will cost close to 10 mi next year, it could happen.

Why anyone would be upset with this pick is beyond me.

There are four WR's (Watkins, Evans, Beckham, and Cooks) and four T's (Robinson, Matthews, Lewan, and Martin) that scream first round pick.

If one of those guys aren't there and you feel like Shazier is an impact player, then take him.

Coaches want a LT ..  :rr:

    • We don't need Fournette to do the latter. He'd just fit it perfectly and could be a generational talent. There are other backs in this draft who could fit into a power run game built to utilize the play action and open up the intermediate and deep routes for Cam's big arm. We definitely should be adding some more short passing game into our offense, but not as a foundation of our offense. It should come from the slot position which hopefully is filled by the addition of Shepard or by a draft pick, ideally not a top 10 pick in McC or even at 40 though. If we want our offense to incorporate the short passing game as a feature then Cam needs to improve quite a bit there.
    • I think he lost weight will help get his speed back. He did look slowed last year. But he also had ankle problems and was beat up.  We need a traditional running game that can operate without Cam's own ability to run. Fournette and Stew would beat the piss out of a defense.  Receivers need to step up as does our OC.  Cam made some bad reads and held onto the ball a lot last year. But he knows how to ball.
