I would stay away from Barkley based on his USC lineage.

I hope Mario Williams become a free agent, then we can trade Hardy for some picks. The Texans after all did release Amobi Okoye, who was a top 10 pick.

what do you honestly think we could get for Greg Hardy?

How serious is Mario Williams' injury, and how much do you think he would cost? I don't see either one of these happening IRL.

I think it's Luck............................Barkley............................................................................................The rest

Agreed with this.

I think in any other draft Barkley is the consensus #1 overall and a damn good prospect. He just happens to be in the same draft as the best prospect to come around since Manning so I feel like he's being underrated. I think he's a better prospect than Stafford and Bradford.

Bradford was a much better prospect coming out than Barkley. Stafford was a stretch to take at #1 and we all are seeing how that's panned out.

If Hardy gets more sacks, he will be good trading bait. Of course, this is only so if we can get Mario Williams. His injury isn't that serious, it's just that the 3-4 really doesn't fit his style of play. It could be that the Texans (who are excelling without Williams) slap the tag on him, and seek to trade him for a trove of picks. Yet they could release him like they did Okoye. (Because slapping him with the tag would cost a lot of their cap. It could backfire and no one trades for him, which in that case they would be stuck with him. With that in mind, they might just let him walk)

For every college player you take a chance on you have to cut a veteran NFL player.

And boy are we just filled to the brim with veteran talent.

Not really sure I agree with any of this.

here is a mock from NFLdraftcountdown.com....updated 10/25 and they have us picking around 9th I believe (Dre Kirkpatrick). I'm sure in the next update we'll be moving into the top 5.

they have coples going #8, and Kalil going #2.

But he's exactly right. Stafford was a top tier-prosect whose tangibles had everyone drooling. Bradford was a smallish QB in an offense friendly system and playing behind an extraordinary OL. Stafford was an extraordinary QB prospect. Bradford was the best of a bad situation-Bradford, Clausen, McCoy, The Golden Calf of Bristol.....

If we pick in the top 5, we just can't afford to reach at all. BPA if we are in the top ten. I think that if we end up picking in the top five, we go WR or OL, and if we pick from 7-15 we will most likely be picking LB or CB. Its just my philosophy that BPA should be the thinking for the first round, then we can focus on BPA FOR SPECIFIC NEEDS in the other rounds.
