Should we trade up to grab the best pass rusher available next year?

WR? Even if Ginn and Moss leave in FA, we still have crabs, manningham, kw, and aj jenkins we can wait till later in the draft to get a big bodied receiver

5th round - Corner / Safety
6th round - Guard / MLB

atleast thats how I see it..


You need to insert in the extra 3rd round pick, which will be a top 75 pick at this point, thank you Carolina.

Other than that I agree with how you see it.

However, at this point I'd say "Go for it!" I'd prefer a VERY disruptive 3-4 DE. We seem solid OLB. Brooks has really stepped it up and I see improvement in every game. Cam & Flemming are waiting in the wings and the jury is still out on them. And FA works both ways. We may lose some players BUT we can also pick up a quality player or two.

The fly in the ointment is JH/Baalke seem to find very good players in other rounds like Hunter. So, maybe we package a bunch of the later round picks and move uo further into the 2nd round and keep our first.

Either way, I feel the impact 3-4 DE is a priority.

This.

remember we have two pass rushers that are going to essentially be rookies next year due to injury, so we don't know what we will have from them
We have an entire rookie class this year that will essentially be rookies next year due to lack of playing time. But I get what you are saying hopefully they will be able to get a good idea what they can do.

we have scouted him once or twice, i cant remember the exact #.
We locked up Ahmad Brooks for a while. Gotta see what happens with FA.

What? who cares about that?

Trading up for another OLB in the first? That guy has to have the potential to be AllDone squared from day one on...Else, it's too much of a luxury pick. Safety, #2 CB and a D-Liner are needed sooner rather than later.

From a strictly numerical point of view he is a thousand times better then Mays in coverage....

Thomas: In 3 seasons - 12 career INTs and 24 Passes defended according to ESPN

Mays: In 3 seasons - 5 career INTS and ZERO(0) Passes Defended according to ESPN

the reasons why Thomas is so under the radar is the small school and he was out all of 2011 (cant recall whether it was injury or something else).

BPA please!
Unless they see the 2nd coming of JJ Watt, I don't see us moving up. I like the NY Giants philosophy of drafting pass rushers, so if one happens to be there, take them. I don't believe in targeting positions by round, as the talent available should dictate who you draft. But I'd like at some point for us to draft a DE (most likely the first only because we need a replacement for Justin Smith), a DE/NT (someone to come off of the bench in RJF's role if the staff is not confident in Dobbs, Tufuaku, and Williams), OLB/DE pass rusher (3rd down rushing specialist mainly), big bodied, sure handed TE (safety blanket for Smith and a good compliment to Vernon Davis), FS (insurance), SS (insurance), T (to fill the void left by Boone moving to guard), and two guys to play G/C (depth especially if Kilgore is starting next year).

How many picks do we have total?
