We will draft a CB or DT with our first pick

I know a lot of you know think were gonna draft a LB with our first pick in the second round, but that no gonna happen. The reason is adam archuleta. He will basically play like a linebacker for us, being close to the box. That makes are greatest need a defensive back that can cover well. We could even look for another playmaker at DT. We all saw last year how much better our D was with Grif and big joe playing. You need as many playmakers there as possible.

I disagree i think we lack depth at safety more than corner. But, I think we will take the best available player at either safety, offensive line, corner, or linebacker.

Ya i said DB. So it could be a safety, either way its gonna be someone with range and that can cover well.

I think we'll go LB or CB, I don't see going after a DT, we've got some good depth at that position now.

I think that we should draft a good WR with our second pick. It may be possible to pry Deion away from Baltimore with a good signing bonus to shore up the DB position.

I agree. Since both Phillip Daniels and Renaldo Wynn, last year DE starters, have experience playing at DT, I'd say we have a very effective defensive line rotation. Unless a serious playmaker falls into our laps, we're probably not drafting the line.

Re: We will draft a CB or DT with our first pick

I thought we were drafting Vince Young.

I think we're going with a lineman. Could be defense tackle, could even be offensive guard. But we're going lineman. That's my feeling

Re: We will draft a CB or DT with our first pick

I agree with Tafkas . When we lost Jansen two years ago ,,, we suffered , ditto with R. Thomas last year . We could use a young DL , think how much better our pass rush would be with Carter and a 21 yr old with a ton of energy and maybe a mean streak . LB and DB's are deep this year . I 'am hoping we trade down and get an additional pick on day one ?

It never hurts to have more depth at the line but LB is where they need to draft. What Archuletta is doing has nothing to do with whether they have enough LB's. You are only as strong as your weakest link.

They are stacked at safety (as long as Taylor is there). CB is definitely more of a weakness because Springs has shown that you can't count on him for 16 games. Rogers has been banged up a lot too.

I still say that LB is where you have to pick. You have to plan in case Washington goes down. As it stands right now, if Washington goes down, their LB's suck.

How are the LB's deep? Marshall is coming off an injury and the other projected starter is Clemons. What if one of them goes down?

I think he's saying the draft is deep regarding LBs and DBs

I would say that we are fine at a lot of positions until our best guy goes down. LB, DT, TE, OT, OG, C are all positions where as long as we stay healthy, we won't have any problems. The depth is there and we have guys who can spot start, but if one of the starters at the aforementioned positions goes down (for a significant period of time, such as the rest of the year), we don't have much to rely on outside of a strong system (which is a great ally, don't get me wrong). But that's the reason that the 2nd rounder must be spent at one of those positions.

Injuries are a crapshoot, and in many cases the X factor in professional football, and you want to be as close as prepared for anything as possible.

So that's my criteria for this pick. Get a guy you would feel comfortable starting in the playoffs as a rookie at one of those positions.

I do stress over this, but undoubtably, Gibbs and co. have already realized what I just stated a long time ago, and we as fans have nothing to worry about.

Re: We will draft a CB or DT with our first pick

If I was asked my opinion, I'd say a versatile lineman can kill 3 birds with one stone. I'm not sure any of that type of guy will be available in the draft, but a great line prospect, as TAFKAS said earlier, would go a long way to curing this problem.

My prediction at this point is still LB, because Gibbs always likes the late round lineman, and you can expect a few this year.

Re: We will draft a CB or DT with our first pick

I completely agree with what you say on the first part, except we do not need another DT right now, we are pretty deep I believe at that position, however, we need another CB, because Springs is getting older and his injuries may become a problem late in the year, but we do need a LB, so either a CB or LB is the way to go. Hey Can we get Darrel Green out of retirement?
