We really need to stop converting players to different positions....never seems to work out for us...draft a player at his position and leave him there

Worked pretty well for T. Davis?

It did, but he had to gain close to 25 lbs. to be a LB and I just wonder if that has had something to do with his ACL tears. Gaining that much weight might not have been good for his frame

I do like Milliner a lot.. but if we have a Top 5 pick, then I think we go DT. Hankins and Lotueleli are too good to pass up. Interior linemen do not grow on trees. If we have a pick 6-10, I'd love to take Milliner.

my only concern for him is getting off a stock block quicker.

If we pick around 6 he may be the best player on the board

I don't know if he'll warrant a top 5 pick AND I think we have a more pressing need right now at DT. For me, it all boils down to what happens with Gamble this offseason. If he stays I'd rather address the DT spot, if he's gone then I would have no problem taking Milliner to replace him. However, when the draft rolls around I'm not sold right now that he'll be the top CB.

Yea. IMO, Milliner is not even close to Claiborne last year. If Amerson didnt have a down year, he would r been the sure no.1 cb next year.

I rather go pick up a cb through FA. (Cason, Smith, DRC, Grimes, Jenkins, etc)

While, I do like him as a prospect, I think interior dline is the way to go.. they usually take a couple years to develop, and the Edwards' will not last forever.

    • Trump is making a bad situation worse with his penny pinching ways to showboat to his supporters here in the USA.  He was speaking out of his ass during the campaign, but he should know better by now than to continue with that sort of pandering to the lowest common denominator. There is no other alliance more critical to the safety of the US than NATO and keeping the peace in that region of the world is infinitely cheaper for the American taxpayer than the cost of coming to their military rescue for a third time.   However, the ramifications go well beyond the unimaginable destructiveness of another world war.   Simply giving the impression to our European allies that the USA cannot be counted on for support weakens the hand of Europe when dealing with Russia on economic and political policies as well.  A USA less than fully committed to Europe's defense will draw them further into Russia's orbit of influence.  That will be unfortunate as our European bases are very important to the projection of our military power around the globe.  Just don't act like the USA is blameless in where we are today.
