Guys on Defense that I would be ecstatic at getting:
LaRon Laundry FS LSU
Paul Posluszny LB Penn St.
Adam Carriker DE Nebraska
But I don't think any of them will be there when we pick. Anthony Spencer, DE for Purdue might be there.
Honestly, the only thing I demand on the Defensive side of the ball is that we only draft people whose profiles say "motor that never stops" and "hard worker" etc. The one thing that seems to translate into the NFL is when they say about defensive players that they are "inconsistent" or "takes plays off" or "underachieves" or "makes mental mistakes." That translates and I don't want anyone unless they are a high motor kind of player.
On offense, I'd like
Shark, WR ND -- if he would guarantee he would just play football. [View Full Quote]Micheal Bush, RB Louisville -- if he fell to us, but showed himself to be healed
Joe Staley OT, CM -- the one offensive player I'd be pretty sure would be there and be excited to take.
After that, I'd also like to take a look at in the 2nd and 3rd rounds at some positions that get overlooked, but that we could lock up for a long time: FB, Brian Leonard and.... don't kill me, K Mason Crosby.
Players I do not want in the 1st round:
Levi Brown, T Penn St - lacks tenacity
DeMarcus Tyler, DT NC St. - takes plays off, disappears, not a hard worker
Any Senior WR besides Shark.
Any LB besides Puz.
Any DB besides Laundry.
Great post Cobra, but I'm going to disagree with one thing and add another.
CB Antoine Cason from Arizona opposite Newman with Henry moving to FS would be great.
I want Landry more though.
Don't forget Lamar Woodley from Michigan. Not a need really but he hates QBs.
I like Posluzny too. A lot. Would love to have him.
