...best DT of the draft. If that means trading down from the #1 pick to the #7 or 8 pick and picking up a second rounder in the process... so be it.

They may go CB too.

A lot depends on who the next coach is and what sort of defensive philosophy he has.

I think Cb would be a mistake. The best CB's in the league can't man cover for more than 4 seconds. Unless we can get a defensive linemen that requires a double team the majority of the time, I don't think who is out there at CB will make a bit of difference.

Pass rushing DT is the biggest need on imo. DT Marcell Dareus is a possibility. There has been little to no pressure coming from our current DTs. We're limited at DE, but DT is a far greater concern.

On offense I think everyone agrees that a #2 WR is the biggest need. I'd take A.J Green, he has the speed, leaping abiltiy, and excellent hands to make a nice #2 WR. Gettis simply doesn't have the speed to be our #2. If you watch him in the Saints game the seperation isn't there. Jarret will be cut, and Lafell can't catch, so Green might be the pick. Edwards can be our #3 if he improves leaps and bounds. Lafell can stay for depth.

I think we'll either go with a WR or DT in the first round.

Sounds like a plan.

Next years team's shiny new coach will have him a shiny new DT.

I hope they never draft a CB with a early first round pick. It's such a mistake. WR, DT or QB zone only

I agree with it, as long as it is comparable to the best value there is in the first as well. DT, WR, Gaurd. Depends on FA too though.

History has shown that those three positions have the highest 1st round bust rate and are also the slowest to develop.

Still, if we do have a top 5 pick in the draft, it will take more than a 1st round pick and a new coach to right the ship so having a slowly developing potential superstar will not be a horrible situation.

i think you could have an argument for WR, DT, CB, or a ORT.

of the above, right tackle would be the least of my concerns, but, with otah having a hard time staying healthy, and given how hard it is to find a good O Tackle, i say if a beast is on the board, take him.

we could find someone who may be as good as otah with a top 5 pick, and can stay healthy too.

then we could trade otah away for the first rounder that we used to draft him a few years ago, or keep him as a very valuable back-up. (which we seem to need at that position every season anyway.)

as long as we are going to be a running team that has really good RBs, we might as well invest in the o-line.

there is no reason to continue tanking our season everytime Otah gets hurt.

plus, with offensive tackles, you have the best chance to not bust as well.

I still kind of think that we're going to win at least 6 games, which puts you squarely in CB drafting territory.

I'm an incurable optimist... :)

I agree with Zodimus... We need that big guy in there rushing the QB. That will force bad throws, making it easier for said CBs
