Of course its easy to say BPA regardless of position or at a position if need. This is more of a perfect world thing kind of like Cam being there when we needed a QB in the worst way.

Just assume their's a player rated a "90" and projected perennial all pro at any position you want, which position would you take in this scenario?

Personally I am going WR. The other needs we have don't represent the same value as finding a true # 1. Been discussed in other threads 1k yard receivers don't grow on trees and only roughly half the QB's in the league are fortunate enough to have one. I don't even hate Lafell, I like him for what he is. However it is what it is and he's not likely to grow into a above average # 1 based off what we've seen so far I think his ceiling would be reaching a Moose type level(which would be phenomenal when paired with an a stud # 1). You have to admit its been nice having Smith all these years and not being burdened with having to trying to find a # 1.

I understand the argument for a LT for Cam but personally I'd rather keep Gross and trust him to hold down LT for at least 1-2 more years. This would also give Bell a make or break year to earn the RT spot long term.

I would be fine with a DT or FS rated this highly as well as they are the most glaring holes on our roster right this second.

Looking at avaialble free agents I think we can find DT,FS,O-line help if need be there to at least hold us over for 1 more year. Conversely I see no receiver we can afford who would be much better than Murphy was last year.

Anyway I just wanted to hear some varying opinion's on this so let me hear em.

Basically BPA of this order- WR/DT/O-Line/S
What I mean BPA is if Warmack is sitting there you don't draft the WR you draft O-line.

Perfect world? I'd take a good Offensive Tackle. I like Gross and still want him for a while, but I feel like the fall off from him to our other tackles is way worse than Smitty's backups. Age is going to take them both, but I feel like we have enough good skill position guys to make due without Smitty.

ideally we'd address RG and RT in FA, redo gamble and gross deals for cheap so we don't have to go through the hassle of trying to replace them, sign canty, switch out ron edwards for dwan, and then draft WR and FS in the first couple rounds.

that's my ideal anyway.

It depends on what Gettleman can do in FA but in your scenario, I guess WR

Im in awe how many people want WR

WR is the last position you want in this draft, in the first. Yeah we are in desperate need of a WR but that's when you make mistakes is when you are desperate. Lets protect our franchise QB and get the best O Lineman available

It's hard to throw to a receiver when you're laying on your back

We have a franchise QB that we need to look after. The first thing we need is a good line to protect him, then to surround him with good skill position players and then give him a good defense. In that order.

We need the best offensive lineman available.

He said assume there is a player rated 90 at each position.

In your dream perfect world scenario that means Joeckel or Fisher fell which means I would be taking OT....
