We seem to be stockpiiling DB's, but not corners.... Could mean two things 1. We will take a corner in the draft, or 2. we will take a pass rush expert.

The latter seems more likely since it is doubtful that Claiborne will fall to us and the experts seem to think no other corner is worthy of that pick. The pass rush class seems to be stacked with just pass top ten level talent. What do you guys think?

Well, we are crowded at the CB position. The Safety position is now legitimately fixed. One of those safeties will emerge and take charge.

It's possible we will try Martin out at CB. I'm thinking our A and B in the first round unless some star falls are Coples and Keuchly at this point. We will easily be able to get a good CB in the second round. There is no doubt about that.

Crowded but only 2-3 should be on the 53 man roster at this point.

I think it's a safe assumption a CB will be taken in the first or second. But I know what I get for assuming.

We seem to be addressing OL and S in free agency. Rather typical of Hurney.

From who we have brought in and interviewed (I know we do not know the complete list) It seems that we are interested in drafting LB, WR, DL.

I have not seen much at CB interviewed--I think we talked to Dwight Bently, a smallish (179 lb) small school player who could fall to fourth. I am thinking they like Hogan and they want to build the pass rush first, which makes sense.

At DE, have they decided Hardy is not the answer? What about Keiser, who had 4 sacks in limited playing time? Can they get more pass rush out of Applewhite? I think we address DE, but not if we don't do it in rounds 1 or 2.

At DT, the prospects are a bit questionable to warrant the 9th pick. They are either workout warriors, one-hit wonders, or very raw. We get Edwards added to the mix and our 4 first year players (Shirley, Kearse, Fua, and McClain) will be much improved. I am not sold on the fact that we address DT, but if we do, it could be a late rounder like that kid from Canada or Martin from Michigan.

I think we are going WR or LB early. Most people think we are set at WR. That is wishful thinking--regardless, we seem to be interested in WRs.

Michael Floyd or Luke Kuechley--Possibly a Coples or Ingram--it is really hard to tell.

It's also possible that they are much higher on Brandon Hogan than we're aware of and believe he's going to be the 2nd starting corner.

Just while we're listing possibilities. Not every single thing to do with the team right now must mean something about the draft.

People seem to get upset at the potential Luke Kuechley pick. I for one, am excited.

Thank you for saying this, it is the point that I was trying to express. Raw is the perfect word to describe the projected top defensive tackles in the draft.

The closer we get to the draft the less I give a fug who we draft. I just want it to be over.

Anticipating the draft is like planning a wedding...too much work for not nearly enough excitement.
