Never said I had Brady. Why would u take Manning if you had Brady?

Curry as good as he is came from a smaller program in Wake. Played in the ACC but nothing like what Jones did in the SEC in his two seasons.

I can also safely call Curry a Bust. He's not your hybrid rushing LB like a Jones and Miller. Very different type of lb.

The point is that all of these guys coming out in the draft are a gamble. Sure some are safer than others but they're still a gamble... So why take a chance on a position you where you're solid, where you [i]might[/i] need better personnel , when you have other positions that you [i]know[/i] you need better personnel?

Just so we're clear - we want to draft a LB (not a position of great need...you can make the argument that ANY position COULD be a need after an injury or poor play so that's invalid) who has spinal stenosis at the 14th overall pick. Spinal Stenosis which has ended more than one promising NFL career. Which can lead to loss of muscle control, muscle weakness, numbness, temporary paralysis, and back surgery to make room for nerves.

Basically we want to draft a LB at 14 overall who brings a health condition with him that makes him fragile. Does anyone remember Dan Morgan? All the talent in the world won't help if you can't stay on the field.

Do not want. Do not believe our coaches would take him. Do not believe you guys have thought this through.

If we're serious about implementing more 3-4 looks into our defense, then a pass-rushing OLB actually IS a position of need. I'm just not sure how serious we are and how much we're willing to invest in adding pieces for a 3-4....but it probably isn't worth using up our first-round pick regardless.

No it's not.

Occasional 3-4 style looks in a base 4-3 defense does not create a need for a pass rushing OLB.

We are a primarily 4-3 defense with one of the most productive DE tandems in the league last year. We will not be in a 3-4 look often enough to warrant adding a 3-4 rushing OLB. Certainly not with the roster holes we have elsewhere.

Sorry, barring career ending offseason injuries to 2 of our top 4 LBs, there's no way to justify spending ANOTHER first round pick on a LB. We'd have to be the only team in history to have four 1st round LBs that we drafted on our team. He's not an all world generational talent, anyway. Even if Von Miller (as we knew him entering that draft) were available to us at #14 I probably wouldn't want him the way our team is set up now. Too much is needed at other positions. Unless we were to start running some 3-5-3 or 2-5-4 system as our base, we can rest easy at LB for a little while.

Not that I am advocating picking Jarvis, but if he is there at 14 I could see it happening.

Everyone saying that we don't need another LB are missing one point.....we don't have a player like Jarvis on this team. He is not a LB in the mold that we have. He is the kind of guy that can be used at OLB or DE in different packages. He is a guy that can put a lot of pressure on the QB.

I agree that we have bigger needs, but I would not be surprised or really disappointed if he was the pick.....assuming he is still there at 14.

We are in need of a DT. There are three or four that can probably start immediately. One, I don't think Jones will get anywhere near 14. Two, one of those big DTs are going to be available.

Here are two from CBS Sports.

Both have us taking DTs. I like Hankins. 6'3" 320. Along with D. Edwards our DL would be solid.

Still haven't seen it mentioned, but for some reason Jarvis Jones is there; someone will offer the Panthers a pretty good package for him. Once you get to the mid-teens, trades start to fall into place because of players falling.

Maybe the Falcons will offer us 29 draft picks to move up to 14 so they can take another receiver and make it to the Super Bowl for a 3rd straight year.

I can see Jarvis Jones being the pick if he's available. Panthers' linebackers are horrible at pressuring the QB. There's a reason McDermott is so hesitant to blitz them. Wouldn't be my #1 choice, but I could see the logic. Pressuring the QB is better than trying to find a CB that can cover the best athletes on the field for 4+ seconds. Everyone on defense looks better when the QB is hurried.

I'm going to wipe my ass in the shape of BR and post a pic of it here.

Probably more worthwhile reading.
