Greatest Need For 2010 Draft Right Now

Greatest Need For 2010 Draft Right Now

my vote goes a pass rusher
I'll go 50-50 on either a stud QB or pass rusher. Perhaps a true #1 WR that doesn't want #1 overall pick QB money!

Why not both? We do have 2 first rounders last I thought.

My dream scenario is Jevan Snead and Greg Hardy. Well...actually ideal would be Bradford and Hardy but I pray whether ours or Carolina's we don't get the #1 overall pick which I think will be Bradford.
QB.

We don't have one. Everything else will fail until we get one. How can you even look at the other categories until you have a franchise QB? A team in the NFL is going nowhere without the right QB.

I would've said Pass-rusher (OLB) but I believe we can address this in free agency and probably later draft one. You can't address the QB position in free agency like you can in the draft, unless of course you trade for one (Cutler/Cassel). So with that said, I'm gonna say OB.

Same here, and a QB. Those two will get us back in the playoffs, IMO.

If you look at the QBs who have done well recently it is because of the talent around them. These guys are walking into great situations. Good defenses, good run game, good WRs or TE to bail them out...

I will accept a game manager (like the Titans with Collins) until we have all the pieces or at least are real close before I worry about that star QB. Average QBs can succeed if there is talent around them. Not a whole lot of QBs (especially these days) that can carry the entire team. Look at Brees with that bad defense. the guy puts up 5,000 yards and they don't make the playoffs. The Pats where so stacked they put in Cassell, who hasn't started since high school, and he goes 11-5. Get my point?

I'd love to split my vote between pass rusher and QB, but I can't.

If the top rated QB in the draft and the top rated pass rusher in the draft were sitting there when our first pick came up, I would take the QB without question.

Good QB prospects rarely make it outside the top ten (yes, we're all aware of the exceptions), but good pass rushing prospects are often found in the teens - meaning teams in the bottom third have the best chance at getting a QB while teams in the middle of the pack can still get a chance at a pass rusher. Probably because most rushers are better suited for one system or another. So, drafting a good QB first won't limit your chances at getting a decent rusher as much as the opposite scenario, imho.
Greg Hardy + Terrance Cody =
NT is #1 for me, it will help free up J. Smith...which will allow him to get more pressure and hopefully more sacks, ints, intentional grounding's, ect. Then of course hopefully Balmer comes along and plays well on the other side. So NT for sure, whether its the kid from Nebraska, suh 6'4 302, or bama's T. Cody 6'4 365 ...I know the knock on cody is medical due to his weight but damn, thats alot of man coming up the middle of an O-line!

The only player in the draft that I would be willing to take prior to a stud NT or OL is Sam Bradford, but we're not going to be in a position for that unless we trade both #1's
