No.1 pick?

The way that the team is playing and the schedule we have left means that the no.1 pick is not beyond the realms of possibility (who would have guessed that before the season started). At the very least we look a lock for a top 10, maybe top 5.

So, what is our greatest need? I say a stud DE or MLB.

Re: No.1 pick?

Honestly....I hate to say it....

and I dont think were the worst team in the league (that can go to Detroit or Arizona, after that I'm not sure who else is much worse, seriously)...

but we have a shot at the number one pick (Wipes away tears)...

However, I'm down for trading any pick inside the top 5 and getting some more players, unless an absolute stud comes up.

Re: No.1 pick?

We won't get a top 5 pick, but I would like to trade any 1st round pick we get for a second, third and fourth or something similar. One thing we have been missing the last few years is those solid upper round picks.

I think we might. If not, we'll be close.

Re: No.1 pick?

We should be able to trade a top 5 or 10 for another late 1st rounder and a 2nd or 3rd at least. Depends who's available. We will most likely trade away our whole draft for a free agent though.

Re: No.1 pick?

Pending Combine results, I would say the only can't miss player that we could use with a top 10 pick is Calvin Johnson, cuz he is a freak and Campbell could really use a big target as a "training wheel".

Our biggest needs are depth at O-line and D-line. We need to trade down for a mid to late 1st round and early 2nd round pick (possibly later picks as well). DE or DT with the 1st round pick and a DB or O-lineman with the later picks depending on who's out there

Re: No.1 pick?

Calvin Johnson IS a freak, but we are about as deep as any team at WR. It's all about DE, DT and maybe MLB.

Not sure why you say that, because right now only 3 teams have records worse than us (all are at 2-8, Lions, Cards, and Raiders).

At 3-7, we're tied with the Bucs, Texans, Titans, and Browns. If the season ended today, we'd end up with anywhere between the 4th and the 8th pick.

Here are our opponents the rest of the way:

Panthers 6-4
Falcons 5-5
Eagles 5-5
at Saints 6-4
at Rams 4-6
Giants 6-3

We'll probably win one out of dumb luck somewhere along the way. But by no means are we better than any of those teams.

Re: No.1 pick?

Re: No.1 pick?

calvin would be hard to pass up, but gaines (DE) and okoye (DT) would be more useful, and if you can trade down a bit to get them, guys like ben grubbs (OL), mason crosby (super stud K), etc might be gained in the process. until draft time, judging whether to trade down our not really doesn't make much sense though, becausse you're not sure of who can help you and where they'll go yet. trading down instead of taking shawn merriman would've been ultra-stupid, so sometimes it is better to stand pat.

Re: No.1 pick?

I agree that we need help at the D-line and thats our #1 priority but I don't think MLB is a pressing issue, cuz we have good LB's at the startin positions and a little depth. As far as DB's I am hearing from different places that we are gonna make a run at Nate Clements from Buffalo (who is a gregg williams kinda guy), so i don't think the DB's are an area we address in the draft either.

We do NOT need to make a big splash in to the FA market this year outside of that b/c what this team needs is CONTINUITY. We are inconsistent cuz we have no way to develop chemistry if we keep swapping out players for big name FAs every offseason. Not to mention FedEx field's ticket prices are skyrocketing every year.

Stud DE is the first priority. Carter is an absolute bust. Until the Skins can pressure the QB with the front 4, our DBs will be hung out to dry. A top-10 pick should be high enough to get either Gaines Adams (Clemson) or Quentin Moses (Georgia).

Just about every prediction posted on the Warpath so far this year has turned out to be optimistic. I'll bet on 5-11 as the absolute ceiling - with 4-12 even more likely.

Re: No.1 pick?

Hey That Guy, (or anyone else who knows), what picks do we have left this year?

Did we lose a pick for Lloyd? The 4th rounder maybe? And of course we traded God knows what for Duckett (essentially 3rd round value).

So does that mean we actually have our 1st and 2nd rounders this year?

Re: No.1 pick?

I get sad every time I talk about this season. I always expect the defense to improve. While I think that our quarterback position has been fixed, I think the defense has huge holes that weren't apparent last year. I expect to see McIntosh inserted ASAP, and if he plays well, then I'll talk about expectations. I think we might win against the Eagles and Giants at home, if, for any reason it's because they're missing top playmakers.
