Replace Cox with Cody and you've got it.
Right idea...wrong OT. Bulaga's a better all-around OT than Trent Williams...has size on him, too. One of the few guys coming out who's equally adept at pass protection and run blocking. This guy's a can't miss, especially w/Solari and Brown teaching him the NFL game.

As for Spiller...I have mixed feelings. Yes, I like the speed he'd add to the backfield...and he'd definitely upgrade the KR game. However, a 1st rd pick should be someone who can potentially make a big impact his rookie season...at least on our team. REalistically, how many touches on offense is he likely to get? Not that many, I'm thinking. Here's my alternative...DE Jared Odrick. The man is a freakin' beast...look what he did all season, culminating with dominating all Senior Bowl week. At 6-5, 300, he'd be the perfect DE in our 3-4. Only knock on him is an arrest on his record...but, if that was an aberration, he'd be a great pick. I see Odrick as a guy who could have major impact his first season...and we can still get a quality KR later in the draft.

I like Perrish Cox...he's a good cover CB and is a good tackler in the run game. He's also a very good return guy, so would be a high value pick.

With Justin Smith and Franklin as locked starters I just dont see us grabbing a DE since Soap is solid and Balmer is waiting in the wings, not to mention McDonald (who I think would be a stud in a 4-3).

Yup, our d-line is pretty sick.
