The 4th rounder we paid for Duckett sure would come in handy. As far as Florence and Hackett, I like it when we draft our own players and develop them, not take other teams' rejects.

I don't hear many people talking about the Safeties? Landry looks like a BEAST and Doughty improved after moving to SS. But Prioleau, Stoutmire and Fox as the backups make me nervous. I think it would be better to sign a safety and then draft a corner.

we're looking at OT in this draft, not G/C from what i've heard (they're interested in getting pucillo and fabini back for that).

it's crazy, but quality OTs might go into the third round this year, and the 2nd is a likely time for us to grab up... future LT with heyer as a future RT until we can find something better or he improves more, and wait on G/Cs till next year or look in the UDFAs.

That's why I think Branden Albert of uva is the ideal O line pick, he can play guard or tackle.

hackett is a cool pickup if he doesnt cost too much...but florence is junk..he gets burned easy,and commits bone head penalties

florence belongs at nickel, thats why he wont be getting burned with Smoot and Springs in there. And when Rogers comes back Florence will just be moved to dime. IMO, all solid starters, but we deff need to get some future in the draft. I am in no way sold on Rogers.

As far a Hackett goes, I cannot see a problem with him. It will be a step foward when adding him to our current corps.

OT class is surprisingly deep this year, we may wait until the later rounds to get help there depending on how everthing shakes out. Ideally we'll take both an OG and an OT in the draft.

Yeah there should be some good tackles in the 3rd round

I hope we make a run at Justin Smiley. The guy was a second round pick in the draft a few yeras ago and was probably part of the reason that Frank Gore had such a monster season back in 2006.

Re: JLC: Skins to Pursue CB Florence & WR Hackett; Can't Afford Briggs?

I am all for signing CB Florence & WR Hackett; as long as they are descent contracts. I feel they can help us in a few ways, as for Briggs, well I do not feel we need him. If we need a fill in type guy or someone for depth I would intertain the thoughs of bringing back old #56 for a modest vet contract. I feel this is already a possiblity of his return since GW is gone.

Atogwe is a restricted free agent, meaning we'd have to give up draft picks to acquire him.

The latest report from the WP is that we're not going to go after Florence and Hackett.
