Use our high draft pick and trade down for a extra 2nd. Throw in Beason or Williams for good measure. I dont, just make it happen.
1st Round: Dee Milliner 6'1 CB Alabama
Milliner is a straight beast and is rising up the draft boards.
2nd Round: TJ Mcdonald 6'2 FS USC
Nice upgrade to the secondary
2nd Round: Cordarrelle Patterson 6'3 WR Tennessee
Patterson is a straight playmaker. Can impact the game in a number of ways. Still is a little raw as a WR. Wouldnt mind Rodgers here as well.
3rd Round: Desmund Trufant 6'0 CB Washington
Great cover skills.

However, that would leave us with holes and needs at DT, OG. If we could get a starter and instant contributor at DT and/or OG via free agency I would be elated with this draft because our secondary would without a doubt be instantly improved and Patterson would be a unique weapon for this offense to utilize.

I think we can get a decent OG in the 4th. Then get a stop gap in FA and look to address the OL and DT in next years draft.
But yea those players would give a massive infusion of talent into our secondary.

We still have a couple of years to address the DT position.
I just see both Edwards slowing down year by year now as they are both over 30. We need someone who can come in and contribute even as a rotational player to begin with and learn from these two veterans. I just fear if we wait another couple years to address the DT position, we will find ourselves in a similar situation to when we started Fua and McClain in 2011 and no defense can be successful with that. I think if Star or Hankins is on the board we take them and go with a heavy dose of secondary and a WR throughout the next few rounds.

Even though I think our DTs have more than 1 year left. Id still address DT in 2014 and through FA.
As you can see, we got old guys through FA that are holding down the fort. Its much more difficult to get them kind of players at skill positions.

I wouldn't mind Banks or Rhodes in the 2nd. Maybe Amerson, and if he doesn't cut it at CB he can solve our FS problem.

I like it though. Let's hope something happens.

I am also not sold on Mcdonald.
But damn I really like Milliner.
Let me see what I can come up with.

I'm starting to not like McDonald in the pros more and more each week. The last two games he's looked absolutely lost in coverage. He also looks really stiff, not allowing for smooth transitions when he turns to run, or change direction. As a USC guy, I hope he can get it figured out, but I'm definitely not sold on him as a great FS at the next level. That said he's light years ahead of Naka, and probably Martin....
Lester and Jefferson ahead of him IMO.
