A lot of mock drafts are saying we take:

Da'Quan Bowers/ Defensive End. But is he BPA? I mean really, I look at this draft with little value now that Luck is gone. Is he #1 pick worthy? Everette Brown is a bust (please present evidence that suggests otherwise). Charles Johnson is a beast and could use someone on the other side to complement him. Brayton is a solid plug in, not good and not bad. We can sure up the DT position in Free Agency and/or a late round draft pick.

Is ANYONE #1 Pick worthy? None of the QB's are, but do we reach? None of the QB's are "the sure thing". They are just players on the rise with "potential". I wouldn't mind a QB, but if we draft one every season with our 1st pick then we will end up sitting back at #1 the following season.

I would like AJ Green based off the fact we don't have a "true #1" anymore. Smith is getting older and might want out (all evidence leads to that). Gettis and LaFell have potential to be really solid, we are yet to see what Edwards can do. Spending 3 picks on WR's last season and getting rid of a highly valuable #33 overall. Do you take another WR?

I wouldn't take Peterson at #1 overall. You can fill the void in Free Agency/Trades/late round picks/etc. I would consider taking him if we traded down though (highly unlikely considering there is almost no one worth the #1 overall, no trade value).

Nick Fairley could give us some young talent at DT. But I honestly think you can fill this hole in Free Agency/Late round draft pick.

I also know this is the 10,000th thread about such a topic.

Thoughts?

Let's see the game tomorrow, then find out at the combine what happens, then we can decide.

Right now, I'm with Green. After the game I might be with Fairley or Newton. But until the combine, we just can't really say.

actually someone just posted evidence on why Brown isn't a bust.. don't feel like searching it at the moment, but of the guys that were drafted with him he's doing pretty well comparatively..

I say get Green and bring in Orton...

If it comes down to either Green, Bowers, or Newton, I'd much rather have Green than either of the other two.

If Fairley dominates tomorrow night's game, I think he takes the cake, though.

I've seen flashes from him, and even some solid plays by him. But him not ever on the field (and when he was, being invisible) really put up some question marks for me. I think he deserves 1 more season of judgement with a coach who can do something with the defense (i.e Rivera).

How do we know if Smith is still leaving?
