I think we have good WR's, We can get a DT or 2 in FA. We will not get a number 1 or number 2 Corner in any other round than the first. That is why IM for getting PP.

with the style of defense we are planning on changing to a CB like PP would be Ideal. I dont think there is a clear cut person that "should" be the #1 pick.

correct on all accounts.

Good for the expected defensive change, but also nice for a division with Brees, Ryan and Freeman.

in the moderate amount of college football i watched this season, other than cam newton no player stood out on the field screaming "i am ready for the next level" more than peterson. the guy is ridiculously fast, has great size, and is a real competitor. i would feel very good about making him a panther, whether he was picked at #1 or anywhere else.

As much as I like Green, I wouldn't be opposed to taking Peterson, who is the best corner prospect in many years. Fairley isn't worth the 1 pick IMO, i'd rather take Marvin Austin if we can get into the second round somehow.

we arent going to sign a 30 yr old CB for 60 mil.

Yes he's 29-30, but that means nothing. Guys at his position stay healthy, and play for a long time. Look at Champ, Woodson, Dawkins (yep a safety, but still), etc. Aso still has speed and can shut down any receiver in the league. This will allow plenty of time for our d-line and linebackers to get to the Qb. He's worth the money if we bring in Fairley. I think we would go to the top in the NFL on defense with these two guys.

With hurney and richardsons approach to building through the draft and not going crazy in free agency I just dont think that is going to happen. crazier things have happened tho.

Would not depend on finding one later in the draft. We have tried that a couple of times....and failed each time.

yeah, I agree, Fox sucks.. ;)

btw, I'm saying, get one in FA and draft one in the 3rd...

PP played all season at 222 lbs..which is huge for a corner, but his father said he is down to 214. Holy frick

looking at your posts and sig below you're name i'm guessing you're an LSU fan. I haven't gotten the opportunity to see many Tiger games this year, but when I saw him play I noticed that teams didn't really throw the ball to his side of the field much, kind of like Chris McAllister when he was at Arizona. Do you think he can be a Revis-like CB and just completely shut down opposing 1 Wr's?

one major selling point for peterson is his return skills. we still don't have that great returner and while guys we had last year returning showed some promise, peterson would flat blow them away.

I honestly think A.J. Green and Patrick Peterson are the 2 best prospects in this years draft. If we cant trade down we should still focus on BPA and Corner is a way bigger need than WR IMO.
