Who's your "prime target"?

My ideal draft looks like this:

If Tavon Austin is there @ 14, try to work a trade with the Rams or Vikings (both with multiple first rounders) for an add'l 2nd round pick and 4th rounder. For example, trade with the Rams for their #22 and their 2nd rounder and perhaps 4th rounder for #14. Then, with the traded picks, take Jonathan Cyrien (SS) or Keenan Allen (WR if he works out well) with 1st rounder; Kawan Short (UT) @ #44; and Stedman Bailey (WR) or BPA @ DB, DL or OL with Rams second rounder. With the two (2) fourth rounders, take BPA of whatever we missed with the prior picks.

If no viable trade can be worked out, then I'm ok with taking Austin or BPA..

I would love this.

Thing about Austin is he hasnt had a visit here that I know of. So he might not be a target for the Panthers.

Trade down with the Bengals (our 14th for their 21st and their second round pick at 37) then we go WR, DT, LT with 21, 37 and 44.

Or maybe, it is the tall receivers that make QBs elite? The truth lies somewhere in between

You kidding me with that theory? Dumbest thing I've heard.

What about Freeman with VJax?

We were at his pro day. Bailey been brought in. I would assume Tavon will be brought in before the draft.

We have mostly met with guys that are projected to go into the 2nd or later like Short, etc. I have yet to hear a big name 1st round projected to have come in. Look like we're working down up. Maybe Gettltman want to make sure he hits those later picks and know or really believe we'll hit yet another impact player at 14. He's saving those players til last.

Now, if already brought in guys like Lane, Sheldon, Star, Warmack, etc. I'd would possibly rule Austin out. But we haven't. Our biggest meeting is April 9 with Keenan.

I cant make up my mind between Star or Cyprien in the first and then I want Hopkins or Wood in the 2nd.

First and foremost I want a trade down- maybe with San Fran their 31, 34 picks for our 14th....then throw in some other picks to make it work right

I'd pray Cyprien and Keenan Allen (or Deandre Hopkins) were there

I think its wishful thinking but I would love this situation. Take Cyprien at 31, short at 34 and then Deandre Hopkins or Robert Woods with the 44th. Id be pretty damn happy with that.

Keenan Allen-1st round

John Jenkins-2nd round

Shamarko Thomas-4th round

Hugh Thornton- 5th round

Mychal Rivera - 6th round

^^^^^^

I did a mock a week ago and those are the guys I had us taking. To keep it realistic I went thru walterfootball's 5 round mock and did not peak ahead. Looked at who was taken before us and picked my favorite available in each round.
