I like Atkins too.
I'm not big on blowing another 1st round draft pick on an OLB. God almighty you choose another OLB with the first round draft pick and you create some real personnel issues with too many 1st round picks at OLB and not enough playing time.
Take a guy in anytime after round 2 and let him play situationally this year-- improve upon his weaknesses and if Ellis hangs'em up after '07 you have someone to step forward PROVIDED Carpenter doesn't become a fixture at the position-- which is distinctly possible.
In rounds 1 & 2 get us a CB and a WR (I don't care which order) and then start looking for a "tweener", a guard/center, a developmental QB, a TE, a NT, an ILB and maybe a FB.
