I choose OLB as the darkhorse this year...

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.

what we really need is dmo55 to tell us whats going to happen...
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?)
