yep. it eliminates a lot of the pressure of having to draft for needs and just get the best players/playmakers.

i just don't trust rookie linemen to not look bad their first year. were it up to me interior linemen would always be vets. i'm not big on drafting any of them, esp. early. i'm even less enthusiatic about starting them early. OT the only benefit of drafting one early is cost vs. picking up a vet. the rest of the guys i'd just rather we keep putting vets who won't get pushed around and make stupid rookie mistakes.

Preach, no need to draft young guys in the middle. A lot of times it is experience not talent that allows for success at OG and DT.

I agree 100% with some exceptions being made based upon value(such as Star miracously falling to us at 14).

no doubt.

I have my eyes set on 3 free agents right now that I think may be affordable(pending how much room we can clear).

1.Kenny Phillips(FS, NYG)
2.Chris Canty(DT, NYG)
3.Louis Vasquez (RG San Diego)

Then I'd like to try and retain
Dwan Edwards
Jason Phillips
and maybe these guys pending other moves made
Senn and Munnerlyn.


Though Kenny is a SS. We'll have to move Godfrey back to FS, which will def make our defense better.

i'm getting the feeling that all three of those guys will be gone by #14.

patterson could be gone by then but i think floyd will still be there

I won't be surprised if this year's free agency period is marked by a lot of band aids.

Signing Chris Canty would be incredible. Anything other than that is just icing on the cake.

Resign Dwan, too.

Dwan and Canty - use a later pick on a DT that can rotate in.

Draft OL in the first.

Still need a NT... Canty and Dwan would have to rotate since they're both UT. Draft Jesse Williams and the DLine will be solid (once we release Fua)!

I still think Jesse Williams is going to fly up everyone's big board after the combine, and deservingly so. He's not all combine numbers like Poe even though he night break his bench press record.

I don't really like Vacarro but that could be a guy we take if (god forbid) Patterson/Floyd are gone.

I don't like agreeing with you, but you're right I'd love to have J. Williams with the 14th pick, I could see us taking Vacarro as well since he's compared to Eric Weddle (If we do take him I'm gonna have to learn how to pronounce that -_-)
