After looking into the DT situation, i don't see us having room for one on the roster unless a really talented one falls and is too good to pass up.

I think I see them taking a WR if it's there, but i would bet that fox would rather draft blue chip defensive talent and sign a patchwork of FA to address WR.

When Peppers leaves we'll only have about two spots open for defensive end IF we keep 5 DE's, we did last year but we didn't have a logjam of decent players at DT either. So two spots are open maximum, we can't afford to replace peppers with an 09 everette brown.

If we somehow got two 2nd round picks I would bet some pie that we would go after a LB.

The LB's we have right now are adequate but we don't really have a trio of playmakers. Everybody loves the glory days of rucker, buckner, jenkins, and peppers. I really remember witherspoon, morgan, and fields (all coached by mills) even more fondly.

I think we'll definately go primarilu for a WR but I won't be suprised if we get an OLB.

Just my wacky prediction.

I said the same thing earlier. We used to think that LB was our deepest position, but now with an aging Diggs, inconsistencies from Anderson, injuries (some old) to Connor and Davis, I could see us taking a LB for depth, as an eventual starter.

i could see it as well, even though we dont have a dire need for one it would be nice to upgrade diggs. if we had another pick im with you that we should grad one. but if not i dont see it being a need over WR.

AJ Edds, SLB from Iowa, in the third? Besides that there are a bunch of guys coming out this year who won't be very highly drafted because pure 4-3 linebackers are in pretty low demand right now.

he hasn't posted in a while I hope his restaurant is doing well. There aren't any miami prospects this year but I like that guy from penn state. He's had a few injuries and character issues but he's a good football player.

I wouldn't mind trading up into the late 2nd to grab him along with a WR like gilyard(sp?)
