Re: Addressing a real need

Yeah we have three real options with that pick. WR, CB or trade. None of the DEs offer the value needed at 9 I don't think. Gotta get value with your pick always. Glad we don't have a top 3 choice...it is going to be hard for those teams to get value up there this year. Seems like an awful weak draft at the top this year. The 7-9 type players are just as good if not better. It's all abut team needs this year.

Re: Addressing a real need

That's right. I forgot about Clemons. He is FAST. I can't wait to see him used more.

Nah I don't think it's the biggest need now, but we certainly could use another big time threat! I believe we need to make sure our offensive and defensive lines are solid.

Anybody feel the need for us to go after a good TE?

Re: Addressing a real need

A good blocking TE. What I mean by that, someone we can pick up in the later rounds that would be a great blocking back and catch the occassional pass.

Re: Addressing a real need

Yeah, definitely a solid blocker, but someone who isn't afraid to catch a pass or two! Wow, if we could turn back time and bring Clint Diddier....but I would be happy with a Donny Warren as well.

Re: Addressing a real need

I think we could find someone who is a steal in later rounds. Someone like Chris Cooley who is a playmker but we got for a bargain.

Re: Addressing a real need

The reason I'm putting this out there is because every mock draft I've seen has Williams and Edwards off the board before we pick.

Kiper has William's going to us at 9, and Edward's going to minnesota at 7, cleveland now that they signed Dilfer and Chicago are the team's I believe could gum up the work's for us depending, the key in the top 10 is the runningback's, there are 3 top flight back's which may push Edward's and William's to us, I think we will see some real surprises come draft day in the top 15.

Re: Addressing a real need

best available CB, DE, or WR at 9. if edwards or williams is there at 9, i won't complain. however, i do feel that our wr corps will be solid, and if these 2 aren't available, we'll need to look elsewhere.

Merriman is around 250 (one site had him listed at like 272!), and will be best suited as a tweener, OLB/Pass Rusher ala Chris Clemons. i would love to see him in burgundy and gold...there are several good to great pass rushers in the NFL (John Abraham, KGB, Lance Johnstone, Leonard Little, Adewale Ogunleye) who are between 250 and 260 who have thrived on their speed and power, 2 things Merriman have truly shown. however, it's a crap shoot for him to be a full time DE...

The key in the top is who trades down. If it stays the way it is now we can be 99% assured of Edwards or Williams getting to us. But there will undoubtedly be trades that shake it all up. If we can't get Williams or Edwards we trade down for better value.

Re: Addressing a real need

why is defensive end such a big deal to everyone. our defense wasn't that bad last year. yet most of the talk is about upgrading at defensive end. we released jermaine haley, dt. we also have gaping holes at middle linebacker and cornerback. but, we need to focus on defensive end just because. but if we were going after defensive end, i would take erasmus james and move him to defensive tackle alongside cornelius griffin.

I don't know if there will be much trading down in the top 7, team's that need a back which includes most of the top 6 won't find a franchise back late in the round, so I expect them to stay put, same with QB's this year, so I would say there are 5 team's who have the exact need's as what the top player's in this draft bring to the table, 3 RB's, and 2 qb's, if a back isn't available for Arizona, they could very well deal out of the 8 spot, but we all know every year player's start dropping who no one thought would, Wilfork, jackson, Jones last year to name a few.

But do we do this through the draft and take a chance on a young player...
we all remember Michael Westbrook never amounted to much. Something tells me Williams or Edwards won't be there at #9...so I say take the top DE Merriman, but if neither the WR nor DE is there trade down and grab someone at these positions in the later rounds. If it's Bill Parcell's that wants Merriman, I'd grab him, if it's Jerry Jones' pick.......pass

Re: Addressing a real need

AGAIN, everyone is forgetting that we should have a healthy Phillip Daniels next year. Why not give him a chance?

I like Cooley but a steal? He cost a 2nd round pick in this draft! Not such a steal! By the way we picked him in the 3rd round of 04 draft! Now if we picked him up for a 4th round pick or later I say you were right!
