Tom Luginbill basically tweeted what I stated about Mathieu the other day:

If u need a good corner, u don't want him!!

No he's a great nickle on the inside. He is a marginal corner that gives up big plays on the outside.

I don't overrate him because I know what he brings. He is a great play maker but he is a average cover corner.

But I think the casual college football fan sees highlights and top 10 plays and think he is a great CB in terms of covering his assignment. I think I remember seeing him a lot in the nickel position where he'd either rush the QB or not have the duty of covering someone on the outside. I need to see more out of him before I can even consider him as a 1st round pick.

I see us picking in the 15 to 18 range.

Possibly...

OT, D.J. Fulker, Alabama

WR, Keenan Allen, California

DT, Jonathan Hankins, Ohio State

CB, Xavier Rhodes, Florida State

Any of these guys would be good.

I think our biggest needs will be those positions, but I think the first pick will be DL or DB. If there's a dynamic Pass Rusher when we pick, I'm very certain that will be the pick.

So maybe a Alex Okafor from Texas or William Gholston from Mich St.

No. I think our DE are okay. We should worry about the secondary more, then DT next

Defense, defense, defense!!!

I wish we use the Free Agency too.

-FA: DRC or Grimes at CB.

-1st rd: DT Star Lotulelei or Jonathan Hankins

-2nd rd: S Robert Lester, Ray Ray Armstrong, Bacarri Rambo or Matt Elam

I agree, I think DT and our secondary is in worse shape as well. I am just responding to Ivan in players he could look out for if he thinks we should go DE over DT and CB/S.

I think we'll be picking around 20-24, so if either are there. I believe it would be a great pick. I'm still not convinced with the DE's we have right now. They are screaming rotational guys to me at this point. Things can change of course.

Secondary will probably be a 2nd need. If what they said about this years draft is true, had Barron dropped to us we would have picked him over kuechly. Then Safety is a huge need.

Secondary needs to be the pick. No more 3rd rounders that end up switching positions.

We need to target the best CB available or the best FS available,

Even if our RT situation somehow doesn't work out, you can find better 2nd round O-line talent better than you can find good 2nd round corner talent.

I don't like to even to start looking at prospects this early or talking draft, but I already know that we will be addressing the DB's.

I think we'll probably end up picking some guy who's not even on the radar right now because the college season hasn't even begun and guys tend to come out of nowhere after a good season in college.If i had to guess i think well be going bpa between cb and safety in round 1 and bpa between whichever of those positions loses out and de in round 2.I still say that any dt's we bring in are probably gonna be vets at this point.

It does not take a rocket scientist to watch one Preseason game last week and know we should be addressing the Safety position next year. RR have said they had Mark Barron ranked higher than Kuechly after the draft. If Barron was still on the board, we wouldve probably drafted him over Kuechly, eventhough we brought in Nakamura and Smith already.

-If Norman can just plays better than Munnerlyn this year, we can pass on a CB. If not, it could be either a CB/S in the first.

-Oline is just out of the question unless something serious occur.

-We wont be picking a DT unless we have a chance at taking a Star or Hankins (if they're productive this season). Also, RR will say he just drafted two young DTs in the 3rd round two years ago. Possibly bring in a vet DT to shore up that spot.
