I know, Matt Kalil is tempting.
Yes, we will get Jon Beason back.
But the level of play on the field today by the defense was truly pathetic.
We can score plenty of points to win games.

Discuss.

What defensive player would you take with a top five pick? (probably 2nd overall)

Kalil won't be our pick. I'd bet my house and cars on it. I'm very confident in saying the team will go defense for the majority of the draft.

Claiborne is the #3 player in the draft.

There is always the trade down a bit stockpile picks route ala Jon Beason.

Move back or go BPA but don't reach for a position of need. If Claiborne really is a top 5-6player in this year's draft then he's got to be the pick. But if he ends up being a middle of the round kind of talent then you can't pick him in the top 5. You try to move down and get more picks if that is the case because IMO there isn't a justification in taking Matt Kalil for our team. Not saying that OT isn't important but it is LESS important when you have a QB like Cam Newton who can make something out of nothing. Ben Roethlisberger won 2 superbowls with two of the worst offensive lines in the league because of talent that he has outside of the pocket.

first off, i dont see us getting the top pick, i think we beat the Colts, 2nd, if we do get the top pick, i still say a WR, i know people will say the same thing they said last year, but Blackmon would just make Cam Newton a better QB and would take a ton of pressure off Smith, plus, we can find defense in free agency, but this time, we need to get a DT and a CB.

We won't go offense. Anyone who thinks so has lost their mind. It doesn't matter how cool you think it would be to have two Kalil's, the team doesn't care about PR. I wouldn't be surprised to see us trade down and go D with our first 4 picks.

You people act like we won't be picking at or near the top of every other round for the rest of the draft

loads and loads of talent after we pick at 2

Kalil then all Defense Or trade down for multiple picks on Defense.

Gross days at LT are numbered, he's overrated and getting old. Kalil is best LT prospect since Joe Thomas

I would take Kalil over reaching for a defensive player not worth the overall #2-#5 pick all day and twice on Sundays.

You can NEVER go wrong by getting a franchise tackle.

There are no DTs worthy of a Top 5 pick. Same for LBs in my opinion.

And Top 5 DBs are inherently risky picks.

If we're sitting there and can't trade down to amass more picks, Kalil is the smart move.
