Questions leading up to the draft

1. My biggest question is how much input will Rivera have in this draft being it is produce or perish this year? Or is he a lame duck?

2 Who will be the most likely cap causalities? I see Gross, Gamble, R Edwards, and Anderson as potential causalities.....I do not see us keeping both Gross and Gamble ..my bet is we retain Gross.If we lose Gross we will need to replace him with a 1st round pick

3.Which one of our FAs do we try to retain? I hope like hell it is D Edwards or we will need at least to spend a 1st or 2nd at UT.

4. Can we afford or risk not taking a wr in the 1st or 2nd round? If Smitty goes down our season will be over for sure

5.What impact player in the draft will give Rivera the most production? Does Gettleman care or is he building toward the following year? This off- season should demonstrate if they are connected at the hip or is this the second coming of the J Fox 2010 lame duck season award ?

6.Is anyone curious as why Gettlemen has not brought in a staff to speak of?

7.Can anyone see a scenario where we can avoid multiple cuts to stay under the cap? If yes please show your math

8.We need at least a OG, back up qb and safety to even show up next year...how can we make the cuts for the cap and fill these positions?

9.If we let R Edwards go can we stop the run and get some push without drafting a NT?

10. Will this draft be about putting the final pieces in place or replacing cap causalities?

If someone can answer these questions I will then be ready to give my mock draft

we have to "value shop" at this draft. get the highest ranked (on our board) at either WR, DL, OL, or DB.

IMO we don't need any one position more than another.........

we just need the best that's on the board at any of these positions.

ps.....what I'd really like to see happen is for us to be offered the chance to trade back to the low twenties and pick up a few picks.

Two things I hope Gettleman does

First, don't fall in love with popular players, treat this as a business and we will be good.

Second, do what you said, draft big guys first and then guys who score TD's

We will do no good going out and drafting all the flashy WR's that you guys slobber over each year if our QB is staring at the sky on each play. You HAVE to get your lines secure or nothing else works.

If the QB gets plenty of time, then many WR's will have good years, TE's also. And, any RB will get yds.

yeah i agree, but who is a number 1 left tackle that will fall to panthers at 14......lane johnson, ricky wagner, barret jones.........

i mean i like jones alot but he has only play left tackle for one year....he did very well but idk if he is a sure started like matt kalil.

If you improve the OL I do not think we have to take a WR. Improved OL = improved Cam....makes current WR group better...

This draft needs to address trenches and our secondary...

I think we have the "TD scorers" in place already

We need to work on the trenches. Boh the offensive line and the defensive lines. If we're going to beat the teams in the South, we're going to have to be able to generate a consistent pass rush, while also holding off the the opposing defensive lines, especially if McCoy and the other young defensive tackles become Pro Bowl level players.

A WR is definitely needed, but it could be possible to find one of those in Free Agency. No, not Dwayne Bowe. No, not Wes Welker, but I'm sure there are quality WRs out there that could be had for a discount price.

My prediction for the FA and the Draft is ..

We cut DWill (I haz a sad), Gamble, Gross, Captain, and either CJ or RKaliel, and Beas restructured / traded.

We draft 1-OT, 2-DT, 4-CB, 5-RB, 6-S.

Optionally, "Oppa Gettman Style" could be load up the trenches (OL and DL picks across the board) and let the next HC work out the secondary / receiver issues next draft.

We would then have to FA a WR and a S to give Nakamura some competition.

So we end up somewhat better than before, but much better cap position come 2014. Which will be the start of the Gettleman Era..

1. My biggest question is how much input will Rivera have in this draft being it is produce or perish this year? Or is he a lame duck?

He'll have plenty of input. Gettleman is not going to pick someone without Rivera's approval, they're a team.

2 Who will be the most likely cap causalities? I see Gross, Gamble, R Edwards, and Anderson as potential causalities.....I do not see us keeping both Gross and Gamble ..my bet is we retain Gross.If we lose Gross we will need to replace him with a 1st round pick

No way to know, only pure speculation.

3.Which one of our FAs do we try to retain? I hope like hell it is D Edwards or we will need at least to spend a 1st or 2nd at UT.

We'll probably try to retain all of them, probably with cheap 1 year deals that they'll take if they can't find any other interest.

4. Can we afford or risk not taking a wr in the 1st or 2nd round? If Smitty goes down our season will be over for sure

Yes we can. Our passing attack is prolific enough as it is, it's more important to shore up the lines.

5.What impact player in the draft will give Rivera the most production? Does Gettleman care or is he building toward the following year? This off- season should demonstrate if they are connected at the hip or is this the second coming of the J Fox 2010 lame duck season award ?

I think we'll see the most improvement for the team by taking the BPA at OL or DT.

6.Is anyone curious as why Gettlemen has not brought in a staff to speak of?

He told the staff when he got hired that he didn't plan to come in and replace the staff. He wants to give everyone a chance and see what we've got first.

7.Can anyone see a scenario where we can avoid multiple cuts to stay under the cap? If yes please show your math

We'll lose a couple players.

8.We need at least a OG, back up qb and safety to even show up next year...how can we make the cuts for the cap and fill these positions?

Draft.

9.If we let R Edwards go can we stop the run and get some push without drafting a NT?

Only if we somehow can get a free agent.

10. Will this draft be about putting the final pieces in place or replacing cap causalities?

Both.
