    Just for fun, and recognizing that the rankings of these websites are hardly authoritative... but I saw the Rivals' top 100 a little bit ago, and started playing around with their list... what would y'all think of these players for the Boys' first 3 picks??

    William Moore, FS, Missouri... 6-1, 225 pounds, 4.45 second 40... has been compared to Adrian Wilson... according to Rivals, he's a good bet to still be on the board when the Boys pick in the 2nd round... he could also project to SS in the NFL, and there is a need on this team for an upgrade at safety... at the start of the year, he was rated somewhat higher, but his play fell off a little from his impressive junior season...

    Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU... 6-4, 295 pounds, 4.85 second 40... the best 3-4 DE in this draft, again according to Rivals he could still be on the board when the Cowboys' pick in the 3rd round rolls around... there is a fair amount of uncertainty about which Cowboys' DEs will be back next year, hence this choice...

    Andy Levitre, OG/C, Oregon State
    ... 6-2, 316 pounds, 5.2 second 40... could backup all 3 interior OL positions early in his career, and the Boys could certainly use depth on the OL...

    I like it, earlier I thought Moore would be out of reach, but alot of great underclassmen will be declaring to push him down to our range

    some are saying that Tyson is a hot and cold player, and needs to be motivated though

    hope this year, which was solid, makes scouts forget about Moore's '07: 115 tackles, 8 INTs, 9 tackles for loss, 5 pass-breakups, 2 forced fumbles, 2 sacks

    Moore will probably the first safety taken, in the middle of the first

    I see Taylor Mays being the first safety followed by Will Moore, leaving the third safety available at #51 a name that is rising is Rashad Johnson from Alabama, good kid not in the same category as Taylor Mays but similar and smarter than Will Moore. This guy is a general on the field and would contribute during his rookie year. I am beginning to sound like theogt did last year with the Cason kid from Arizona.

    QB would be the least picked over position for our needs with the 69th pick, I would like it be someone who makes Tony pucker a little just to get his attention. Some say Tebow will be available, I say he has to be better than Johnson or Bollinger. We could sure use his guts in the locker room. Him and Choice together might smooth things some.

    So hard to pick DT/OL in these higher rounds I have no opinion yet as too whom we should be focusing.

    LB I feel is going to be a fingers crossed guess.

    They said the same thing about Kenny Phillips last year and he was barely taken in the 1st.

    Yeah, going to be another run on OLine this year just like last year easily 6 OT could go in the 1st round three in to top 5 depending on how teams draft....

    All I know is that after watching the Ravens and Iggles...safety is the #1 priority going forward.
    Good safety play gives you so much flexibility on defense.

    I don't really know that there's much besides Mays that would merit pick 51. Maybe Moore, but I'm not sure why anyone who is low on Roy Williams would be high on Moore - he's got deer in the headlights disease as well. I don't like the guys who get bumped a round for size and measurables. He may turn out fine, but he strikes me as being more of a project.

    I liked Johnson in the Alabama games I watched, but I wonder whether he's really more of a cover 2 cornerback.

    If you caught the few times that Western Michigan was playing on national TV, you saw Louis Delmas, who could go anywhere in 3-5. This is the balanced, hungry, intelligent kind of ball player I'd like to see us throw a pick at.
