Early I know but the idea of taking a DT, DE or LB next year with our first pick would really irk me at this time.
Sure Ferguson, Cany or Spears may get injured, not pan out or any other situation but I would still be hard pressed to be ok with another DE, DT or LB at that first pick.
We have two older WRs and a group of other young WRs. We don't know if we have a number 1 WR in that group but I think it would be fair to say those young guys would probably be a group of #2 and #3 WRs.
We have ignored that position long enough in the draft (first round).
I also think we let Julius walk. I could go with Slaton if McFadden is gone.
Why, because I think the two back system works and I think Slaton and Barber would be a great tandem. I think it would be better than Julius and Barber as Slaton is more explosive.
So at this time I am hoping a WR and RB to inject youth and top round talent into our team.
Now I would not be opposed to the OT position so much as it would at least be an offensive pick. But that would also depend on how a few of our current guys do. I think it would be fair to argue that Flo will be gone. So would that mean Big Red would take over for him or would one of our two draft picks this year take over him and one of the others take over the LG spot. We also have to see how Columbo does this year as well.
I want us to go Offense with at least one of the first two picks. I would not mind a CB with the second first round pick if value is there.
oh well...it is a year away and anything can happen from now to then so I may do a 180 degree turn in the future.
One last thing to consider. If for some reason Romo does not pan out or has a bad injury, the QB position has to be taken into consideration.
My real hope is that we have a high round pick (from the browns) and we have some of those QBs (Two colts and Brian B) sitting there making teams want to trade up and give us a sweet deal while only moving down a few slots and still getting a McFadden or slaton.
