I get the wanting of a playmaker like SPiller, but the majority of great pass rushers in this league are high draft picks. I don't want to cross my fingers and hope for one in the second. It's been a decade since we had one, one lousy pass rusher and we didn't even draft him, the two we did actually draft, we let leave and star for other teams. One of the 1st rounders had better be an elite PR, it's no coincedence we haven't had a winning season since we last had one. I'm all for waiting later for interior line help and RT, because that's what you can get in later rounds anyway.
Well.. I guess the question then is who is truly worth being a top 10-15 selection at OLB. Hughes? Graham? They better be really great if we pass on Spiller or haden in my opinion. I just dont know if they are at that level. I know a lot in here think they are however.
We are fortunate because there are alot of pass rushers in this draft... I like your thinking John, but I want Berry with our 1st pick, OK its unrealistic but so was getting crabtree.
with our 2nd 1st rounder we NEED CJ Spiller. He immediately makes our offense better, not including ST. Stay with the spread offense, drop Norris and put SPiller and gore in tandem and watch the defense s**t themselves with VD, Crabtree, D walker, and Morgan as threats too.
with our 2nd rounder, BPA at rush OLB or OL.... remember this draft is deep because of the possible changes in regards to rookie contracts. EVERYONE is coming out. Hell if we can trade our 1st next year like Carolina did so we can pickup someone late in the 1st early 2nd I'm Done with that. We Need at RT and a guard that can run block. I would love to get the kid from Idaho!
rest of draft is BPA Period... lets hope our front office and scouts have done their homework for this offseason. I dont expect any big FA signings.
