Forester and Everest - Neither of thier area's played well with good talent. Everest failed to insert Spurlock when he had the chance, and that itself costed us two games and it took Forester 13 weeks to figure out how to fix the o-line.
Franklin - Franchise Tag
Eugene Amano - OG Titans - Just ask Vince and Chris how good this guy is. He is a flat out stud and IMO he is better than Mankins and would come at 3/4 of the price.
Nick Collins - Young ballhawking free saftey. Signing him will allow us to cut Lewis. Lewis is having concussion issues and I think he needs to hang it up. He was awesome before the injuries but you can't have that much invested in a guy that you don't know if he will play every week.
Rod Hood - Good corner back that will add depth and makes plays.
1A - Bryan Bulaga, Iowa RT - He is the stud RT that will solidify our offensive line going forward. No matter whom the QB of the future will be protection won't be a problem. Gore and Coffee will be licking their chops after this offseason.
1B - Terrence Cody, Alabama NT - Due to Franklin wanting to test the market and only producing in his FA year it would be smart to take a kid that will dominate in the trenches, even if its only for 2 downs. Franklin will still produce cause it will still be his FA year and it gives us a year to groom Cody.
2ND - Dexter McCluster, ATH Ole Miss - He is the fast field stretching special teams ace we need. He is this years Harvin just without all the publicity. Some think 2nd will be to high but come draft time he might not make it out of the first.
3RD - Akwasi Owusu-Ansah, CB Indiana - Big, fast, physical corner that will instantly upgrade our ST and add needed depth at CB. I really love this kids upside.
4TH - John Jerry, Ole Miss OG - At 340lbs this kid can move and move people out of the way. Mike want to run the ball this kid will make sure that happens and he is solid in pass protection. His stock will rise predraft, remember this kids name.
5TH - Rashawn Jackson - He can block, run, catch and play special teams and Norris is getting long in the tooth. Would go higher but his arrest in 08 hurt his stock but this kid can play and is very versitle.
6TH - BPA
7TH - BPA
That would elevate us to the playoffs IMO. Brooks has stepped up and our defense in the top 15 for sacks. With this offseason every hole is filled IMO.
