I don't mind the draft, especially if we can sign Byrd, but I couldn't disagree with your opinion about DTs more. DT is a big money, important position and to get a GOOD FA, we'd have to spend a lot of money. DT is like QB, LT, DE in that it's better to draft your own talent than trying to buy it because you almost never get what you pay for when trying to bring in long term talent. And I'm sick as hell of bringing in bottom tier scrub DTs, D. Edwards being the closest thing to an exception (yes, I really like him but he's not a long term solution.)

I hope Patterson enters the draft AND we draft him (in the 2nd). He's my favorite WR in the draft.

I don't think an announcement has been made yet, but it could go either way.

That's why I included his ex-teammate, Da'Rick Rodgers who has already declared and will be just as successful if he keeps his head on straight.

Gannt was tweeting saying if we was the GM he would draft two straight o-lineman and that would solve many of the problems. I kinda like the idea except for the fact we need to address the secondary and the defensive tackle position pretty badly

I'd love to get a combo like Joeckel and Barrett Jones. I really think we need to get one of the top 5 receivers though, between Hunter, Rodgers, Patterson, Patton, and Williams we should be able to find a future #1 receiver.

Joeckel and either Warmack (not possible unless we pull some kind of massive trade-up) or Dallas Thomas (who I think is the second best G in the draft). Our running game (assuming we get a competent OC) would instantly be dominant.

I think Patterson is going to be a stud as well but I think that FS is a much bigger need at this point and with all the noise being made about the WR talent in this draft...the DB talent is being way undervalued.

Milliner, Amerson, Reid, Banks, Elam, Lester...All of those guys could start at FS for us tomorrow and I think passing on one of them in the 2nd would be a mistake. So if we have a top 5 pick I'd go Joekel/Elam in the 1st/2nd and sign a WR or TE in free agency to shore up that pass catching need. IMO Cam lost a huge target in Jeremy Shockey. I think he was a HUGE part of this offense. Way bigger than anyone in the organization would be willing to admit because we let him walk.

So if we don't sign Byrd in the offseason (which I don't see happening) then get the future starter at FS and go pass catcher in FA whether it's a TE or a WR:

Dwayne Bowe

Dustin Keller

Wes Welker

Delanie Walker

I would welcome all of those guys (obviously some more talented than others) to this team and I think they would all pay huge dividends as options for Newton.

The problem with the names you mentioned as FS candidates is that the only ones you named that will be available are Elam and Lester.

Both of those guys are strong safeties and would not translate well moving to free safety.

I have a feeling we will score on someone in free agency like we did with Dwan Edwards, except at safety.

We will not be bringing in many big name guys, trust me.

First..I wouldn't be surprised at all if Amerson was there in the 2nd round (he's an ideal skillset for FS). Secondly..Matt Elam can't play FS? The guy is 5'10'' 202, ran a 4.42 forty, and plays against SEC receivers every week. What aspect of his game have you seen that makes you think he can't play free safety?
