As much as it would benefit us to draft A.J. Green, I am still going to guess that we go with Bowers or Fairley.

Rivera is a defensive minded guy and McDermott is an AWESOME pick up. Today has been the best day since my son was born!

Rivera also talks alot about tight ends.

Chud is know historically as a tight ends coach.

I think we will chase after Zach Miller.

Anything I am missing?

Rivera is good enough to compensate for lack of talent on the defensive side of the ball. We go offense for that very same reason. In fact, I think Gabbert will have a stellar combine, and will probably ride the hype train all the way to #1.

Aggressive defences are only as good as the guys covering the wide receivers...

That would be some awesome pickups. I think we would draft Peterson 1st round before signing Asomugha to an enormous contract.

Zach Miller will be our major FA pickup.

I see us getting Patrick Peterson. and Address DT in later rounds. Rivera will be confident in coaching guys up. I hope we don't draft D-line with #1 overall. D-line is one of those positions that can be taught and schemed to optimize.

Is that lobbying to sign Asomugha or draft Peterson?

I'm so pumped right now for new blood in the FO that I'm down for best defensive player available. Right now I'm leaning Fairley and signing Aso, but I'll save my final opinions for after the combine.

Speaking of which, is anybody else going to be watching the 24/7 NFL Network combine coverage for the first time this year? I mean, I watch it hear and there in the past, but I will be watching it intently this year.
