Coupled with this article make me wonder .I know we dont have much to throw to get him or what type of contract he would be willing to take.My guess is we take one in the 2nd if Claborne does not fall.

I would be mildly surprised if we did not get Coples. He's one of the best players as well as a need.... If Claiborne dropped heck yes, but as you said, that's doubtful.

Samuel is willing to redo contract deal to get trade done.He has some age and I have no idea where the money will come from.

i'm not confident enough in my draft analysis to put a cent of my hard-earned money on it... i think with our top two linebackers potentially not coming back it's a position of great need, especially if we can nab jenkins in the 2nd.

I'm with Philly, I think we're really interested in Keuchly.

Saying that, I think Samuel is the best guy available that we could just plug in as a starter and be set for, at the least, next season.

I really think we're taking Kuelchly or trading back if Claiborne isn't there though.

Adding to the anxiety regarding our current LB corps, Marcellus Wiley was discussing Jason Peter on Sportscenter this morning and said that he tore his achilles last year, and even though he's not playing anymore, he said he gained back all of his strength but lost his explosion. He said that's the concern for anyone with that injury. That's a huge reason why I think we're targeting Kuechly.

Doubt Jenkins is there in the second. The top four corners will most likely be gone in the first in Claiborne, Gilmore, Kirkpatrick, and Jenkins.

After those four there is a s significant drop in talent because all four of these guys play the pass really well but can also play the run pretty well.

However, there is one corner that I believe that if his forty time was faster and he was better at stopping the run then he would be a first round pick and that is Casey Hayward. Hayward has grade A coverage skills, what he lacks in speed he makes up with great route recognition which in the end doesn't hurt him so bad. I really believe Hayward has just as good coverage skills as the four guys I mentioned above if not better than some of them.

If we can't get one of the four guys I mentioned above I would take a hard look at taking Casey Hayward in the fourth.

I would love Jenkins in the second. That would, potentially, one of the bigger steals of the draft he kept his head on straight.... I rather get Coples than Kuechley. But you definitely have a valid point.

This draft could go so many different ways...

1. Claiborne falls (Jackpot)
2. Coples is still on the board (Have to take the best player available)
3. Kuechly fits a need (Drafting based of need and not reaching to bad for the pick)
4. Poe (We settle for Poe)
5. DeCastro Trade (Or we trade down and grab a third rounder)

The only LB I see in the 2nd is Mychal Kendricks so do you wait until the 4th? Someone of starting quality is going to have to come from FA..
