Yeah, perhaps with the two first-rounders, we'll finally be able to land:
A mammoth nose tackle: Can you say hello to Mount Cody? Boo Robinson? Al Woods even?
A monster pass-rusher: Come on down to San Francisco Mr. Selvie? Greg Hardy? Antonio Coleman? Sergio Kindle? Brandon Graham? Rahim Alem? Auston English? Everson Griffon?
2010 draft will be WAY deeper at Pass Rusher. Now, at tackle though, it might be a different story, which is why I was concerned that we did not address that in this draft. But considering we have two firsts next year, we could land a dominant safety (Eric Berry, Taylor Mays) and a monster pass-rusher or nose tackle.
I need to calm down. Maybe I should take a week off, because I'm ready to get the work started already.
Are you telling me there are three legit 3-4 NT prospects with first round grades in 2010? That would be the first time since I can remember. That in itself is reason to be excited, you are right.
It's way too early to be projecting players -- there's so much time for injury to occur. Right now, aside from Mount Cody, no one can really be considered a 1st rounder. We knew Cody would likely have been if he came out this year, but the other two -- Robinson and Woods -- You're looking at early Day Two guys who have a chance to play themselves into day one.
It's a long ways away.
To be honest, I am most excited about the pass-rushing group. I mean, heck.. I barely listed what would be available next year. That was 8 players right there, which didn't include Rico McCoy or Jerry Hughes, two amazing pass-rushers who could elevate themselves for 2010. And don't forget Troy's Brandon Lang.
Don't get me carried away.
