What are your expectations from this years draft?
The way I see it, we already have a very strong roster and this season is really our last stand with the current group.
We have all the key players intact, we have all the coaching staff intact and we have 6 freakin picks in the first three rounds.
I don't think any other team is in a better position than us right now to make a Super Bowl run. This situation isn't the same thing as the Eagles trying to buy a dream team, but rather a strong, championship level team trying to get over the hump.
With the way the schedule played out, I think if we add 2-3 QUALITY rookies, that step in from day one and can contribute in all three phases, it makes our roster deeper and more talented than any other in the NFL.
So I expect Baalke and Co, to be aggressive and go out and land INSTANT impact players that the coaching staff puts on the field from day one.
I don't want to see any project players that we can bring along and that can sit and learn, I don't want to draft 2 guys at the same position that are insurance for each other in case one doesn't pan out, I don't want to see guys drafted that are practice squad targets and I don't want to waste ANY picks on positions that are already secure enough to get us through a Super Bowl run.
I'm not against drafting a couple injured players to put on IR, but only AFTER we land a few impact players.
This is our chance to make a run and I honestly feel that before the draft even starts, we are the team to beat in the NFL. With the abundance of picks we have, it's time to land the difference makers that will get us #6!!!!
