I could see us drafting the following in the first round
TE, WR, OG, RB, Safety
I think we will draft the OLB later in the draft like 3rd round
I cannot see us drafting a rb in the first round. Why should we? We have two guys under harness and there is plenty of value later.
I cant see us drafting a guard in the first round. As much as I like to see OL taken, we have spent quite enough on the line, and there is way better value later in the draft.
I know the zone has come out for a 1st round tight end, but my gut reaction is it wont happen. A 6th overall was very, very high for a te. To have two first round tight ends on a team would be unusual, to say the least. Not saying it wont happen. Just saying I think it unlikely.
Safety? Could happen, I suppose. Generally of course, you got your corners in the first and your safeties later, but the game keeps changing. Dont see the position that high on our needs list though.
Wide receiver? Ah, yes! Now that is where the real need is. And I cant see us being big players in the free agency market because we have so many of our own guys to re-sign. So it has to be the draft and it has to be early because we need a starter in 2012. So if there is value in the pick, this is where I think it should go. But if the real prospects are gone and we have to look at picking lower calibre guys, hopefully the team have learned their lesson and wont reach as we did in 2008. In which case, with no reason to take a qb early and the OT spots covered, that surely leaves pass rush. Having said that, I want a receiver taken early and ready to start this autumn. Actually I want two, but you dont always get what you want.
