Mock draft first 3 rounds

I think, although we could use a slot reciever and a 3rd down back, we have enough playmakers on offense. We just need consistancy, maturity and a little more time in the pocket and bigger holes up front. However, we could really need some some play makers on defense.
1 Joe Haden
with his superior athleticism and ball hawking skills, Haden makes an obvious choice to improve our shotty secondary.
1 Anthony Davis
Davis would solidify the right side of the o-line and give Alex (or whoever is at QB) more time and open up lanes for our back field.
2 Von Miller
manny lawson has picked up his production, yet our OLB are not getting enough pressure on QBs. Von miller has been great, beatting Russell okung and has a multitude of moves and has fluid hips. He would greatly help on passing downs.
3 Marshawn Gilyard
gilyard could really help us in our awful return game as well as as a slot reciever.
I like it
seems very possible and i would be happy with.

Pretty good, not sure if Gilyard would be available in the third, and I might go for O'Brien Schofield over Von Miller. Good job though.
Good post. This would be a very good draft.

Haden, David, Schofield, Gilyard would be a wonderful draft. Then we need a safety, ILB, OG
Like the picks, but (thanks to Carolina's resurgence) I think our first round selections may be too late for Haden now.
this could work, what safetys are available in the 4th round
I don't know what to think about Miller. Every time I've seen him play(which hasn't been much) he's been almost invisible...but yet the stats speak for themselves.

Is he just a 3rd down rusher? I don't know if I'd like to spend a 2nd rounder on a guy who only plays on obvious passing downs. I would rather grab a guy like Eric Norwood or Ricky Sapp who are more well rounded
Although both us and Carolina are now 7-8, our picks will still be pretty high (11- 16 range). I still believe this is high enough to draft Haden, and the only teams that might target him before us are Seattle & Tennessee. I believe that start next year with Haden at CB and Nate at SS. I also think that if someone offers a trade similar to the one we did with carolina last year (2nd for next year first) we should take it. We gotta stock up on picks and talent.

I understand what you're saying, but if we both win out (extremely possible) than those picks will likely fall in the 14 - 22 range. Seattle, Buffalo, Tenn, Jacksonville, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, etc all could be selecting in that same range and all need CB help. Haden is the top CB in this draft and I think its possible he even slips into the top 10 by April. I would love Haden, just not sure he'll be there for us anymore.

And I'm not sure we're gonna get Nate to play safety. I can't see him agreeing to restructure his deal and change positions in an uncapped year. I don't think we pay him #1 CB money to play safety, either. So if Haden comes, I think he'll start TC competing with Brown at nickel.
Actually, I think Nate does restructure his deal because it is an uncapped year. If he wants to keep his job, he will restructure. As well, I think we end up 8-8 but CAR I think ends up 7-9. They're playing NO, and latley CAR has been on fire, but I think the saints pull it together and gain momentum going into the playoffs. However, if Haden is gone by the time we pick, I think we should change our strategy and add more weapons on offense. CJ spiller and Bryant could go along with an OT in the first round, and Iupati in the second would really solidify the O-line. Finally Morgan Burnette at saftey would really help out the secondary.
That is only if Haden is not avalible though.

Can you elaborate? Why do you think he would prefer to restructure his deal to stay here vs hit FA in an uncapped year?
