I'll just have to disagree. There's 8 or so WRs without much separation among them but after Star, Hankins and maybe J. Williams there's not much else at run stuffing DTs, and I don't think any of them will be even close to available with our 2nd. Williams is the only one that might fall to the 2nd at all. Jenkins is more of a 3-4 NT, but if he was available with our 2nd (doubt it) I wouldn't mind if we took him if we went a different direction in the 1st.

The combine will separate those 8 alot more. If its not star at 14 i wouldnt do it. Hankins has motor issues and i would only want jesse williams if i could trade down in the 20's. Patterson will be worth 14th after combine, follow him up with barrett jones/bpa oline in the 2nd. This would take pressure of Smitty and put our expensive back field to use.

We will have a pick between 28th -32nd and will pick up a late 3rd round pick. For our 14th pick

You're saying we'd trade down 14-18 spots and only pick up a 3rd for it?!!? I'd projectile vomit all over my screen. I'd be calling for Gettleman's head on a plate immediately.

The only option I see trading down would be with the rams at 22

I don't want to trade down, I want the best safety or Dt, plain and simple. We have to do something about these south teams . Vincent Jackson is huge so.is Jones and colston can play big so we need good over the top help or more pressure on the qb.

It is very early, but I see no way we draft a WR in the first. Of course, free agency will change this to a degree (yes, we will get below the cap by about $8 million) but Gettleman and RR have already told us what our focus is---big guys. Protect the QB and balance the offense. To balance the offense, we will actually run it more (my guess). We will protect Cam and stop the run.

That means a RG and maybe a T. There are a lot of ways to do this. You could cut/trade Gross and sign a RG and a DT, for example, then draft a LT.

Who is the Julio Jones in this draft class, is there one?

Not to me--I think it is full of #2 WRs

[/quote] Safety is a devalued position in the NFL. As long as they have hands and are good in run support they can play. Safeties that have tight coverage skills get flagged and lose you games.

I like this plan earlier but to many Good OT went back to school. I don't want to draft a guy that wouldn't have been at that pick if the underclassmen would have stayed in the draft. We might can't afford to let Gross go yet.

[/quote]you're leaving out the part where he also said we need touchdown scorers...and i think he actually said that before saying something about the big guys, and it could even be that he meant WRs that are big guys. he didn't specifically say OL. also...he's coming from a winning culture that has picked WRs early every year for the past 5-6 years. they know, as he does, that you have to have a good receiving corps, which we don't really have.

So we finally get rid of armanti, pilares and Murphy. This has made my off-season.

Why I think we'll take a WR:

After Smitty we have: LaFail, AE, Gettis, Murphy, and Pilares (excluding Adams and Lamont)
