This Star fellow seems like he's a lot more worried about pushing his man into the backfield than he is about shedding said lineman to tackle the tailback blowing right past him.

More of SS, but Matt Elam looked really good yesterday vs LSU. He was everywhere on the field making plays.

I love Matt Elam!!!!

We gotta upgrade both safety positions. Godfrey is not going to cut it. Unless we finds a real SS and move Godfrey back to FS.

It makes much more sense to keep Godfrey at his better position at SS and find a FS. But if we do draft Elam, there'd be some shifting.

Cut Godfrey. SS is his better position, but is he the answer there for us? No. Cut him, but thats not likely to happen.

I have been saying we need a safety all along but after todays game I have realized how badly we need to draft the best receiver in the class. It's brutally obvious. Will be hard to pass on an elite safety if one is there.

If we can somehow get Star Lutolelei and Matt Elam in this next draft, there might be hope for our defense in the future.

Im biased with the gators, but ive got dude love for Matt Elam. Dude is athletic, covers well, plays the run great and hit likes a ton of bricks. Also has attitude that this defense needs. If he comes out this year, I dont know if the front office pulls the trigger on a safety top 5-10. We need CB, S, OL, DT, WR not particularly in that order.

Have to say I'm pretty discouraged knowing that this team has about 5-6 legitimate holes in its roster, and we couldn't possibly fill them all in one draft. It'd help immensely if this front office, or whoever's in charge come next year, actually goes out and signs a REAL free agent who's startling caliber at a position that actually needs improvement and isn't a luxury or another running back. That way we wouldn't have to rely on a fifth round rookie to start and hold down one cornerback spot, nor would we be reduced to finding (hopefully) capable defensive tackles on the waiver wire after training camp every year.

It's time the front office actually took a risk and invested some talent in the DT position, much like they pulled the trigger on the first round quarterback, and also opened up their wallet to find a starting defensive back.

Dashon Goldson has been on the market the last two years... Havent seen one psuedo inquiry the Panthers have made toward him... He might be too coordinated.

Goldson would be perfect, but too perfect for us to actually pursue him. Like Jonathan Joseph a few years ago.

Alex Okafor DE Texas. 2nd week he made my list. applied pressure all night, and is the complete DE. 3 tackles 2 sacks and 2 FF. made a nice strip sack on the goal line for a TD.

Jordan Poyer CB Oregon St. has been an under the radar prospect all season. nice size CB that had 3 ints vs Washington St. locked up Marquess Wilson and 2nd day prospect, might have played himself into the 2nd round.

Stedman Bailey WR WVU.another guy i highlighted last week has good quickness off the LOS. was locked up all night vs another day 2 prospect Bynum CB for Texas. but still had 8 catches 75 yards and 3 TDs.

Star Lotulelei DT Utah.dominate performance. commanded a double and still pushed opponents into the backfield. had 3 tackles 1 for loss. and recovered a fumble,after blowing up the center who is the #1 center prospect in the nation.

Matt Elam S Florida. didnt fill the stat sheet, but flew around the field and had pretty good coverage all day. made a game changing play when he took a good angle and hawked down a guy with legit 4.4 speed to not only make a tackle but force a fumble.

Keenan Allen WR Cal. didnt watch the game but had a pretty good stat line vs a decent CB for UCLA. 8 catches for 79 yards and 2 TDs.
