These are my top favorites. Honestly I hope McClain stays for his Senior year so we can try to get him in 2011.

We should get all of them.
Arthur Jones, Syracuse

Brian Price, UCLA, Jr.

Marvin Austin, North Carolina, Jr.

Jared Odrick, Penn St.

Tyson Alualu, California

Vince Oghobaase, Duke

Geno Atkins, Georgia

What is the Webzone's take on these tackles? Is there any quality here?
I hope Brian Price stays another year. Its better for UCLA and better for his $tock.
give me Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama and Eric Berry, S, Tennessee

McClain is a monster....I keep saying I want him to stay so we can go after him in 2011. I would have no problem moving up next year to go after him!!!!!!!
Suh or Cody and Hughes.

Can you imagine having Willis playing next to McClain? That would be awesome.
I would go for CB/KR Javier Arenas, Alabama; DE Carlos Dunlap, Florida; S Eric Berry, Tennessee; ILB Rolando McClain, Alabama; & CB Joe Haden, Florida if we don't get Javier Arenas.

I think DE Graham from Michigan would be a great pick with our 2nd first rounder, as of now. Grab an O-lineman first, and then snag him - addressing both sides of trenches. Great pass rush ability from this guy would definitely be an upgrade at great value.

is he a 3-4 DE or a 3-4 OLB? IMO i think we need a monstor DE opposite of smith and i think we will be a good defensive team

I see him as a 3-4 OLB and 4-3 DE. He's very much in the mold of Lamarr Woodley (not just for the fact that Woodley also went to Michigan). For a 265lb he is quick and takes great angles.

Our DEs are playing very stout right now, but I think Graham is the guy that can get to the next level in the backfield - something that we are currently lacking on a consistent basis.
Joe Haden and Derrick Morgan would complete our team. I still think moving up into the top 5 picks for whoever falls between McCoy, Suh, and Berry would make our D dominant. Suh may fall a bit given his knee injury history although it hasn't slowed him much the past two years.
Brandon Graham please.
