Fletcher Cox has 2.5 years as a starter in the SEC, so he is not a one-hit wonder, and he is not raw.. he is not simply a workout warrior, because he has the production to go with it. I'd say Fletcher Cox is the only guy that does not follow under your broad umbrella, thus he would warrant the #9 overall pick.

he
He is a bit light, but he is my favorite DT. I do not think he is top 10, however, Some say he aineeds to gain weight. I did not offer a detailed description of every DT I was thinking Still, Poe, Brockers.

Oh I see. I heard that Cox has the frame to gain 10lbs without losing his elite quickness. Right now he is being mocked anywhere from #9-15.. I don't feel like he is much of a reach, if a reach at all. He will not get past #15 to the Eagles.

I also had him pegged as a 3-4 DE because of the weight. I hear the Pats love him--

Good. Let's hope they love him enough to trade up and grab him ;)

I'm still hoping to trade back and get an extra 2nd rounder or our 3rd round pick back..... finding a suitor for that option becomes the case. Kirkpatrick or Gilmore would be good choices. Then look to the DT need in the 2nd.

Well Hurney likes to draft 1000 mediocre DBs in the 6th and 7th round so of course we have mediocre DBs.

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.


I hope they learned from their mistake at DT last year. None of our DTs graded out positively last year. Fua actually graded much higher than McClain, but both were in the negative. We can't win like that. Edwards should solidify to some degree our run stopping, but he is not a back field disrupter. Applewhite & Kieser seem to be very solid role players. With run stopping AND pass defense a deficit for us, I could see them going DT. I feel only Cox is deserving of our slotting tho. He's not raw or a workout wonder. High motor, productive player in a good divison in college.

Db might be crazy, but it's a hell of a lot better than Cb.
