Big fan of Polk and have been watching him the last three seasons. I think he'll do very well in the pros, my only worry is that he's got a lot of miles on those legs. He was a bell cow for the Huskies for three years.
I doubt we'll be taking a running back in the first 3 rounds, but if I were to choose one, I'd go Lamar Miller out of the U.
I'm really struggling to come up with a good idea of what we do with our 1st round pick this year. As long as we actually do re-sign Morgan, Rogers, Brooks, and to a lesser extent Goldson we could do a pure BPA in the first and worry about our needs after that. Everyone here needs to stop overreacting about our WR, DB, and OLB needs.
WR: if we actually re-sign morgan our top 3 wideouts are: #1 Crabtree #2 Morgan #3 Williams #5 Ginn. IMO we're looking for a #4 wideout. easily found in the 4-6 round range
DB: re-signing rogers puts us at Rogers, Brown, Culliver, Brock. We'll probably cut Spencer if he doesn't restructure his deal so we're basically looking for another #4 corner unless you guys think we should cut/trade/demote Brown.
OLB: If we re-sign Brooks we're looking for his back-up because he won't re-sign with us just to back someone up.
S: re-signing Goldson means picking for his back-up as well but we've got some young back-ups already, not too mention there really isn't a 1st round safety on the board this year.
Sure Baalke/JH could make a "business decision" and demote a player in an effort to make the team better but I just don't see them pursuing Brooks, Morgan or Goldson if we're going to draft their replacement. We'll find out in March but I really don't think we let any of them walk. IMO we could easily trade our #1 back into the late 30s or very early 40s(40-43) and draft a RB or DT while also gaining another mid round pick.
We'll find out if tomorrow if David Wilson is going pro but if he stays in school I bet Polk's stock jumps up quickly.
