I hear you.....I am concered because we are limited in our number of picks this year (1st, 2nd, 5th, 6th)...not addressing the OL (our most glaring need) is risky. If the talent pool is limited with OL...then draft one in the 1st round at least. It is hard for me to watch our OL suck every game for us NOT to address it....but i will concede my point IF and only IF there are NO steller OL when we pick (other than LT). I believe we may fall right in the middle of the pack (10-21) because we can only get to 10-6 after winning the rest of our games........ok im done....just have to wait and see now.

I'm picking up what you're throwing down. One issue is the FA OL class isn't that strong this year. Maybe Davin Joseph at G? So that may force our hand, or maybe next year Brown is healthy, Capers and/or Cook step up, and so on? Tough to say at this point, I agree we need to improve the line. Don't know if we need to throw all our draft eggs into the OL basket though.

The buzz at the moment is that have their eye on a LB in free agency. I haven't been able to figure out who that is though

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Oh and the huge (pun intended) wild card in all this, and I think I mentioned him a few weeks ago is Big Mike Williams. He's apparently well on his way to a full recovery and he was supposed to be our starting RG this year. If he's healthy you can probably pencil him in as a starter for us in 2011

I hate to see london go (whenever it is time)....but we do have to address the middle/Inside LB position(not over OL as we already addressed...lol). HB Blades is not going to cut it......we need a Derrick Johnson/Al Wilson(before the neck injury). We have so many needs....i guess 10 years of ignorance will do that

Yeah, I've been thinking that this could be Shanahan's next Culter pick. Wouldn't be to bad long term. Locker has a strong arm, extremely mobile, and apparently he's accurate. On top of that McNabb is injury prone and a former projected #1 overall pick that can move and cover any pass protection issues wouldn't make a bad developmental prospect to ride the pine for the next 3 or 4 years. Unlike most raw QB's Locker would actually have a chance to develop.

Plus right now Mallet and Newton have a chance of being selected in front of him. If Andrew Luck declares then that will all but guarantee Locker sliding during the draft. Of course Luck has said he wants to finish his degree and with a rookie wage scale about to be put in place he won't have the $75 million temptation that other #1 picks have had. Plus he'd be going to Buffalo. Or maybe Carolina which wouldn't be a bad deal with Cowher coaching. Crap I don't want the NFC to have their own Peyton Manning, God knows we have no defense.

I feel bad for missing out on Bradford last year but Williams certainly made for a nice consolation prize and hopefully a year in the system will help McNabb tremendously. Maybe in free agency they add a reciever or two that doesn't let the ball volley from his hands into the hands of his opponent.

Quote:
Accuracy - 2 -Needs to learn to put some more air under some of his deep balls. But overall accuracy is very good, especially considering how many times he is unable to follow through on throws due to pressure. He shows good touch on dump offs, flares, etc. Outstanding timing on comeback throws and is not afraid to lead the receiver back to the ball. Deep out accuracy and zip is excellent, as are accuracy on curl routes and square ins.

Release/Arm Strength - 1 - Keeps ball high in drop, gets the ball out quickly and uses an over-the-top delivery. Can drill the ball into tight windows that most college QBs can't fit it through. Can drive the ball down the field with a low trajectory when necessary. Has proven capable of getting good velocity on his throws when playing in wind, rain, snow, etc.

Pocket Mobility - 2 - Excellent athlete. Gets set quickly and has really developed a great tempo to his drops under new coaches. Feels the pressure coming most of the time and has the quickness to buy plenty of second-chance opportunities. Two questions he needs to answer in 2009: does he roll to his right too frequently when pressure comes, and will he learn to better-protect his body by sliding, diving and getting out of bounds?
So yeah, it probably won't be the most popular bandwagon this offseason but I'm now on record as wanting Locker to be a long term developmental prospect.

Has to be an ILB right because right now I'm under the impression that they couldn't be happier with Orakpo and Alexander on the wings.

Do you mean Paul Posluszny because that wouldn't be to bad of a pickup. Smart hardworking player that can take on blocks. Plus you remember what happened the last time we signed a Buffalo Linebacker.

I think it'd be interesting if the team drafts another Auburn QB.

Please no. No more Auburn players period. They always have some sort of huge defect (stone hands:Reading defenses). Bama on the other hand we've had success with. Oklahoma....mixed results so far.

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

The need for a DE who plays in the scheme, but is also a functional pass rusher is paramount in this defense. Love Adam Carriker, but he's pretty useless going one on one against the other team's RT.

I figured that Haynesworth would be the best RDE on the roster, but he's never lined up there in a game and we continue to play Golston who simply can't execute the position.

Ma'ake Kemoeatu isn't an ideal nose tackle, but hes under contract for next year, and he plays well -- in spurts. We should look at some nose tackles in the draft, but depth can be had in free agency easily. We just have a gaping hole in the defense at RDE that must be fixed if the right player is available.

Maybe Jarmon can take that role in the defense when he's healthy. He's certainly has the functional pass rushing skills we need, but we need him to be at least a two down 5-technique DE...or draft someone who can be.

There wouldn't be mixed results if we could have drafted Sam Bradford

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

Cam Newton will not be a Starting qb in the nfl. He's another Tebow IMO.. I'd take Luck, Mallett and even Foles over Newton

Re: 2011 NFL Draft

I'm eager/curious to know what the plans for Jarmon are. I can see us taking a DE high in the draft. Maake's contract is heavy on incentives, won't be hard to let him go
