does this make drafting a DT or DE a little easier to deal with since he has a good track record for making a defense exceptional?

or do we try and fix the most obvious weakness on the team and get the offense back on track?

i wonder if any part of his negotiations would involve him getting to draft his guy with the 1st pick (even if we get to trade down a few spots).

thoughts?

To be honest, i hadn't considered the draft post not getting Luck.

I just hope the FO gives our new Skipper (whomever it is) a bit of a say as to how he would like the evolution to go...

Jerry said it - they need to score more points and generate more excitement. I hope he wasn't thinking defensive scores. lol

True. somehow i get the feeling that JR will be looking over everyone's shoulder during this draft. i doubt anything crazy happens without his blessing this year.

that being said, i am still interested in who they may be able to trade down with and still get a good value in the first rd. the only guy i think they take at #1 would be Green or Fairley.

Say no to Defensive tackles at number 1. He was a largely unknown player before the start of this season, i'm not sure he would have been drafted in the top 20 last year.

Instant success plan for Rivera.

Step 1. Hire Josh McDaniels as your Offensive Coordinator
Step 2. Sign Deangelo Williams, Thomas Davis, and Charles Johnson
Step 3. Sign Kyle Orton
Step 4. Sign best available free agent offensive guard
Step 4a. If guard is not the play, make an offer at Aso. He, Gamble, and Munnerlyn would be a great Defensive backfield. I think you will see Rivera get more out of Martin and Godfrey next year as well.
Step 5. Draft best available Defensive player (Fairley, Dareus, Prince, Peterson....I trust Rivera to get a player that he can be successful with)


Day 1 starter at QB: Kyle Orton
Day 1 starter at WR's: Smith, Lafell (Gettis, Edwards, and cheap vet)
Day 1 starter at RB: Deangelo Williams, Stewart backing him up
O-Line Starters: Otah, FA, Kalil, Wharton, Gross

D-Line Starters: C. Johnson, N. Fairley(Vet), Landri, Hardy
LB Starters: Davis, Beason, ???? (I don't think we will match what Anderson will want)
DB Starters: Gamble, Godfrey, Martin, Munnerlyn (possibly Aso)
Nickle Back: Munnerlyn or (Peterson, Prince)
