Ok the two glaring needs we have is QB and CB (People say we need a pass rusher but that can be retained because LaBoy did a fine job at doing that last year and Brooks can be effective as well. To me there is no QB out there worth drafting at number 7. I want either Patrick Peterson or Prince Amukamara (preferably Peterson) because im tired of our secondary being a joke. I would rather trade a 3rd/4th for Kolb or Orton and draft a QB in 2nd (Stanzi) or later rounds. Being That Gore is coming off a broken Hip and not knowing what will happen about retaining Westbrook how does anyone out here look at taking James at 7 for BPA if Peterson/Amukamara are gone?
To me this kid is exciting and makes big plays. He reminds me a smaller version of Chris Johnson because hes not afraid of contact and his game speed is unreal. Soon as he hits an open whole the guy is gone. Yes I know 49ers taking him at #7 would be a head scratcher it seems like but theres alot of logic to it. Gore cant last forever but I do believe he can come back and be affective and prove alot of doubters wrong. The problem is for how long? I think we should convert Dixon a FB and let Norris take a walk. I think theres a chance Westbrook can stay but other teams might start flashing some green in his face and lure him away.
I dont care if im the only one that would like this move but I would be content with it. This could be one of those BPA moves and who all knows who we may get in Free Agency to fill those other voids. I remember alot of us wanted Spiller last year and to me I think he can be just effective as CJ. I am not gonna post a bunch of highlight videos on him because the guy is all over youtube and we will get to see against Auburn tomorrow night.
