2014 Draft Positions of Need.

Big price to pay but with still having a first in 15 I probably pull the trigger on that. Matthews / Lee(Watkins) is a MAJOR haul. Both are a little undersized as elite WRs, but they make up for it with other skills....

Realistically, I hope we end up with an elite tackle or lee/Watkins in round 1. Even if we have to move up.

This is just me, but I would absolutely love to trade up for Marqise Lee. I don't care if that cost us a 2nd and future 1st. If he lives to the hype, it's a win for us. I gladly come out of the draft with Marqise alone. It's time to find 89 replacement now.

Though, I'm not sure if Lee would compliment Cam as well as Sammy Watkins. Watkins seem more athletically gifted to where we can use him in more dynamic ways: coming off screens, reverses, and with the read option. Lee is better off being with a Rodgers, Brady, Ryan kind of QB.

I would love to sign Jeremy MacLin and draft purifoy from Florida and go from there. I think we can get maclin cheap since he will be coming off of injury.

I would love it. But it all comes down to how well Maclin comes back from the ACL. I dont think he's on Hakeem Nicks' level, but he's a great no2 receiver that can fill the no1 role.

 

Purifoy is a solid CB prospect and an even greater ST player.

Hypothetical question:

Cam breaks his leg and we finish with the second overall pick in the 2014 draft.

Pick number one chooses terry bridgewater.

We are up, and teams are dying to make a trade.

Team with pick number four offers us their first round, their third round and next years first for our pick. Do we trade?

 

Would you trade away a Dline of : Johnson, Short, Star, Clowney?

 

I would let Hardy walk and use that money toward Nicks/OL.

 

 

Now if Clowney was taken no1 overall, I wouldnt hesitate to make that trade for someone in need of Bridgewater. With that said, I'd take the best OT available. Trade the recent acquisitions: 2015 1st/3rd to get back into the 1st. 

 

2014

1st: Cyrus Kouandjio OT, Alabama

1st: Ifo Ekpre-Olomu CB, Oregon "or" Louchiez Purifoy CB, Florida

2nd: Gabe Jackson OG, Mississippi State (If he's available. Teams may again make a run at OL in 2014.)

True everyone heals different but I think he would fill the void quite nicely if we decide he is 100 percent

Definitely. Maclin was the no.1 guy on my radar in FA for next off season. But with the recent ACL I have to think again.

Tre Boston, my mistake. Ty!

chuck: I could've sworn that I read that on the main board somewhere. I wish I could remember the source.

Rivera talks about corners in this article. I just read through this thread and remember him saying that too.

Every year since that Seattle playoff game where they tripled smitty I've wanted a wide reciever to help 89 out. I hope your right Kurb and that Gettleman stays with his pattern and adds OLine help through FA's and drafts a Wide reciever early this year. I do realize OLine is a major concern that needs to be addressed.

1 a. OLine

b. WR

2. CB

Nothing would make me happier than to see the team spend every available draft pick on the offensive line. Stack it for the next decade and watch Cam destroy the NFL.

Here is what I expect to happen:

WR--We have average WRs, so this guy needs to be elite.  Move smith to the slot where he can do more damage.

T--we need a LT to groom for the future. Can we get another year out of gross?  I think so.

FS--Godfrey is not worth his salary--that puts him on Gettlemen's list.  This should be a good year for FS in the draft.

OLB--I think Beason will be gone.  Klein is nice, but we need depth.

RB-Stew and DWill are probably gone and if we get the line right, we will not need an elite rb tandem.

SS--maybe we can find a gem late in the draft.

 

 

Do not draft:

G will resolve itself.  Silatolu, Kugbiila. Williams, and Scott will be solid

CB--Thomas, Norman, Munnerlyn, Moore with Wilson on the PS--solid.

I'd say offensive tackle is most important to address and other positions, like receiver, will work themselves out.
