Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

That 1st round pick we gave up to Denver is looking worse and worse. Phew!

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

I'd love to see some more DL and OL depth. Maybe take a project DE with our second round pick. Honestly, I think we could fill a lot of needs at free agency this year.

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

I think we need to USE what draft picks we have this year. Our team is fairly solid on both sides of the ball. We should be able to get a decent DE in the 2nd round or a pretty good WR. One of those positions will probably be addressed in FA, but I hope they dont go and overpay someone that is marginal. We may also pick up the trade w/ Ramsey for Abraham, so that may leave open drafting a WR in the 2nd round. We will probably end up signing a veteran QB in the offseason to fill the #3 spot. You can usually draft a decent guard in the 3rd round (Dockery) I think we are pretty set with the D line, and LB depending on LA situation. seconday, we could probably use a SS that has better cover skills. Clark is good a run support, but seems to be average w/ cover skills. (like to have Notre Dames SS #9, forgot his name)

I'd draft for offensive line depth. Ray Brown is a goner to retirement after this year, and Corey Raymer looks like a salary cap casualty. Do we know if Molinaro is any good?

I'd be picking up offensive linemen left and right if I were Gibbs.

Do we have a 3rd rounder this year? I thought we gave up our 1st and 3rd in the Campbell trade, along with our second rounder from last year.

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

I think the first thing we should look at is WR early. After Moss and Patten, its pretty wide open. Thrash is primarily a special teams player, and TJ hasn't shown us anything in these last 2 years.

I know we won't be able to draft this guy, but the dude from Georgia Tech Calvin Johnson is sick. 6'4 225 and he's pretty fast. Great hands and can jump for the balls.

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

I generally don't like rookie WRs. They are hit and miss, and take a long time to develop even when they're hits.

I'd rather see us get a WR via free agency and draft the other positions.

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

I hope we consolidate all the later round picks and just have 1 second round pick and 2 thirds. Last year's latter round picks like Manual White and Jarred Newberry were total busts (save Nemo). Don't know what the deal with McCune is either. White and Newberry were certainly poor choices.

We could use the second rounder on a WR, and the third rounders on an O-lineman and back-up D-lineman/DE. The starting DE we get via free agency.

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

WR, DE
depth: CB, OL, DT, TE, WR, LB

oh yeah, possibly a QB if JC doesn't pan out...

and new kicker and punter may not be out of the question either.

According to Bugel Molinaro is pretty good. big,strong and athletic. They drafted two tackles / guards that year and I can't remember if the other one is still on the team or not. They will need a backup center, and guard, but one of the two(molinaro / other guy) could fill the guard spot. I would still use the 2nd rounder for either the DE or WR, which ever is the best player available. These are impact players that would make a bigger difference immediately with out team. The OL draft picks are not going to be immediate starters where the DE or WR could be.

I can see where you're coming from....especially with our luck drafting WR's. Almost all of them didn't pan out.


But this kid Calvin Johnson is the real deal. I think he's worth the risk.

Bottom line is, we need someone to compliment Moss, and it would be nice if he had some size.

Tupa should be back next year and hopefully Hall can work on his leg strength in the offseason.

I don't know that I'd call Manuel White a poor choice at this point. He sustained a broken leg in preseason, so the verdict is still out.

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

wouldn't be suprised if Raymer comes back for Vet Min. We need to address the following positions:

Pass rushing Defensive End
Wide Reciever
Cornerback
Tightend
3rd Quarterback (if Ramsey is gone)
Dline

Re: Draft Forum Now Open!

I would love it if we got at least a 3rd or 4th rounder for Ramsey.
