Although a good dline makes the secondary better, a good secondary enables you to blitz and makes the defensive line look better, it goes both ways. Remember when we weren't afraid to use Man to Man? How good did the SAME Dline look then?

100% agree.

As demk25 points out, we need a COVER safety. This is why a lot of think Springs should make that switch. I think he'd excel there.

Picking Landry is (like South Park said about John Smith) dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb, dumb.

I dont think you realize how hard it is to guard a receiver for more than 5-7 seconds. Defenses usually dont blitz secondary much, only a few plays a game. Most of the time it is the Dline that causes turnovers, because they pressure the QB to throw quick. This is commonly accepted NFL fact.

This league is a turnovers league, teams that make the playoffs always are winning the turnovers battle.

I still think Minnesota would jump all over him if Okoye is there. There's no doubt in my mind that if we trade down two spots or more, we'll lose out on BOTH Okoye and Landry. Then we'll have to select from the second-tier guys like Carriker, Jarvis Moss, or Jamal Anderson.
This is what the top 10 could shape up as (if I compile all the rumors I've heard, assign each a weighted average, and blah blah blah)

1. Raiders-JaMarcus Russell
2. Falcons (from Lions)-Calvin Johnson (*the Niners could move up to #2 as well)
3. Browns-Brady Quinn
4. Bucs-Gaines Adams
5. Cardinals-Joe Thomas
6. Texans (from Redskins)-Adrian Peterson
7. Vikings-Laron Landry
8. Lions (from Falcons)-Leon Hall
9. Dolphins-Levi Brown
10.Redskins-Amobi Okoye

Peterson has been my most anticipated pick for the past 3 years. The Texans need him desperately but CLEV. really needs a RB b/c in their division Baltimore has got the answer to shut down J.Lewis. If the Falcons move up it wont be for C.Johnson, although wow that would be DANGEROUS for the other 31 teams w/ Vick and that offense OMFG. I dont think they can pull it off.

But damnit I hate seeing Adams go to Det. or TB I want him in DC, but b/c of bad business in the Skins front office we cant work this draft w/o picks. Its a toss up if we can get a franchise DE in Adams or make a choice that has never been made under Snyder- to be patient, take what is available in low 1st round, and possible 3rd filling defensive needs to be competitive and then look to next year look for a franchise DE, DT and be set for the future.

It really is bad business if the world knows the owner is going to spend $ regardless always leaping before looking. Check the resume, and if you cry and stay a Skins fan than you begin to feel my pain.

L.Landry 4.35 40 I'm sure he can cover anywhere. Even his less talented brother who was the Ravens rookie starting Safety yielded at most 2 td's all season. Football is in this families blood and the best has yet to be drafted.

Its a shame we bet this years draft on last years no shows(Rocky,Lloyd) b/c this year is evident we have franchise players in Adams, Landry, and maybe Okoye who has accomplished a lot in his young age. No teams care about Springs-he is old news(perfect team to be in right..)so we can't trade him. I think it is time however Springs moves to safety cuz Taylor needs a vet to tell him to stop biting and taking horrible angles. Also, lets see if Jerry Ball really is doing his job in coaching.
