The first 5 draft picks overall should be starters in the NFL.
Any player drafted that early, especially without a rookie cap, that cannot clearly distinguish himself above teammates at his position is a bust.
Because there is no evidence that would indicate any newly drafted player will get to train before the 2011 season begins, I believe teams must consider players who do not require training to compete before players who do require training.
In other words, players that will obviously present a physical matchup problem in the NFL are the safest picks in this year's draft.
DT or trade down.

I disagree that o-line is our biggest weakness but I think we should at least look into some mid tier FA's and maybe some late round fliers in the draft for back ups.

I think Rivera has said it is our biggest strength didn't he?

Our LBs aren't? We need depth and here is why: Gross and wharton are on the wrong side of 30. Otah is having way too much trouble with a 24 year old knee to feel the OL is solid. Kalil is on a 1-year deal and Schwartz is our RG. The draft is not all about 2011, but to anticipate needs in the future.
Why draft players in the 3rd or later based on 2011 needs when they take a season or two to be ready to play?
Since we don't have a second rounder, we almost have to draft a CB in the third round and hope that he can play nickel for a year and will develop into a player.
I think we should get a guy in the draft (4th round) who can play both tackle spots and possibly RG. Willie Smith from ECU has a tremendous upside. Pinkston from Pittsburgh is short, but he can play LT and G. Could drop. Carpenter from Bama, Hairston from Clemson, Brewer from Indiana all have developmental potential, which is all you are going to get that late in the draft.
Our line is a strength when it is healthy. But if you look at the age of the left side, the inexperience and injury history of the right side, and the contract status of the center, we need depth. Anybody with a vision of the future and knowledge of football would agree.
Williams, Bernadeau? We need better.
