Our Falling Draft Pick + Keenan Allen

Good points. DT, OL, or WR.

However, not just any WR. We need a #1, move Smitty to slot to end his career and improve his effectiveness, and then let Lafell have a career as the #2. Look for Joe Adams to eventually back up and replace Smitty. Gettis will get a good look to back up the other 2 spots.

Are there any safeties worthy of a top 10 pick? If not and Star, Hankins and Joeckel are off the board, then I'd go best CB or best WR

I think you take the best player at a need, and I think #1 WR is a huge need. If you don't, you cannot see the wall that Smith has already started to hit. He would be great in the slot vs the #2 CB or nickel. The only WR I see good enough to play #1 as a rookie is Allen.

If you said you want a DE, then I scratch my head at your logic. Hardy? Johnson? Alexander? Keiffer? That group is coming of age and could be the best group of 4-3 DEs in the league.

We need a DT, WR, OT, OG, S, and CB.

I think we are going to cut Gamble and Gross, to free up about $15 million or so. I would also consider cutting Godfrey.

If so, our needs change dramatically. I would expect us to do something like sign a DT and CB in free agency. We would draft a LT and a WR in the draft.

I agree that WR is a huge need, but don't reach for a guy in the top 10. I'll ask again, why Allen over Hunter, Woods or Patterson?

Why not grab Lewan? Warmack? Milliner?

I wouldn't want to reach for a WR when we can get one in the second if need be. Need to get a bigtime impact player in round 1.

Kenan Allen is ridiculous. He might be better than Marquise Lee, Robert Woods, Sammy Watkins...as a pro. I'd be thrilled with that pick.

Allen is just the complete WR.he has the size, speed, runs good routes, and has produced for 3 years since stepping on campus. when he has the ball in his hands, he turns into a even better player. can out run angles, run through tackles, can juke defenders just your all around good WR. i wouldnt mind settling for Hunter, Woods or Patterson, but Allen is by far the #1 WR in my eyes.

7-10?....anyway wouldn't hate the pick, but at the moment he isnt rated the #1 WR in the draft. He in fact may be,but we wont know til after the combine and the pro-days.

Yep, I think we'll be around pick 7 or so by the year's end. I can see the Chiefs, Raiders, Jags, Jets, Iggles, Zona all ahead of us if we finish 3-2.

I don't see a WR being rated higher than Allen goin into the draft. He's got 2 inches and 15lbs on Lee who is probably #2 IMO. If you put 15lbs on Allen he is Andre Johnson's size...he's gonna be a stud.

I am really hoping we end up with Allen in the first. I think we are going to win a few more games and the two best DTs and the best LT will be off the board.

Lee, wont be in the 2013 draft.

I now take back the notion our draft pick is falling. It is rising :)
