WR, DE, DT or CB?

34 posts in this topic

I'm actually thinking LB or OL... Just because we need to solidify those positions. The drop off in talent and production is almost scary on the line, and everybody was scared shitless when T-Dav went down again. Thankful Beason moving to the outside and Connor stepping up on the inside has worked out. I'm not a big fan of James Anderson or Jamar Williams. They've been pretty good so far tho.

I think you go DT with the first pick. The defense will be strong for years. Brown, Hardy, and Norwood will develop to into pretty good players so I think you can rule out DE. LaFell, Edwards and Gettis will also get better so unless a stud WR falls to us I don't see that happening. CB maybe a possibility. With the way Gross is playing tackle might be an option too.

-Just just spent our last draft on picking up 3 WRs...so no #1 on them.

-We will have a hole at CB if Marshall leaves after this year which he probably will at this point.

-Greg Hardy is beasting and we already invested in E.Brown.

-DT....Hells f***ing yes.

DT or CB, spend that pick on either!

This team is a mess. Other than linebacker or running back, you take the best player available.

I wouldn't draft a WR in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd round... takes too long to develop and we need help now. I would much rather see us trade picks for a proven commodity at WR then see us spend picks on one, especially since we're going young at QB and our best WR is on the wrong side of 30.

We need the most help at DT in my opinion. At good DT will make a CB better, it works the other way around as well (coverage sack) but it more frequently works from the DT making the CB better side of the equation (more pressure up front = less time in coverage). A good penetrating DT also makes the DE's better because it forces the QB out of the pocket and sets the DE's up for the sack.

I'm a Tarheel, so I'm hoping all this NCAA stuff with Marvin Austin causes him to slip down the draft boards right into our hands. I'd say we take the Tampa approach and draft two quality DT's to shore up our defense.

i agree with this. we have invested far too much in WRs this past year. i'd rather us focus on something else and if none of the million choices we have on the roster this year pan out then go out and get someone in FA. the FA class should be good and we'll have money to do it. it just makes sense to go that route.

If there is no CBA in place and there is a lockout, do they still hold the draft?

Yes, there still will be a draft.
