    I do not know. That 16/17 pick is a no-man's zone in any draft, which is a roll of the dice regardless.

    All you can do is trust the board.

    The only big problem is that this team is not equipped defensively to compete, especially in the front four.

    If the "BPA" is a TE or CB, what then?

    Fair enough.
    I have to agree with you on that. No quarrel from me, friend.
    I am of the opinion that 16/17 could be an advantageous position to be in if there is a team(s) willing to give a good deal to get the player they want...
    But I realize there is obviously no guarantee of that.

    My real hope is that a TRUE talent of need falls to them and they take it.
    Any which way- I always look forward to the drama that is called the NFL Draft.

    Actually, later in the first round is more of a sweet spot these days. That is where you might find a team looking to trade up out of the second to snag a player in the first because they can sign them to a longer first contract.

    I do not see much advantage to being right in the middle. Even when supposedly "top 10" talent slips, you rarely see teams trade up for them.

    So you think it would be of greatest benefit if they can find two trade down partners?
    One to get them near the bottom of the first and one to give them a sweet deal into the 2nd?

    Interesting strategy...

    If they can trade down and still pick up Pryor (slim chance), I'd do that in a heartbeat. I've watched his tape several times, he's a bigger and even more physical earl thomas. He's a leader and a tone setter for a defense. Definite 10 yr type of guy. I just wonder what that would mean for Wilcox. Seems like they'd be giving up on the Church/Wilcox combo very quickly (1 year?). I wonder which one of those two will be here for the long term b/c it doesn't seem like the team is set on both of them playing together.

    I think Wilcox has a very usable skillset without being a starter.
    He is a nickel safety type right now imho.
    Could be really effective as a honey badger type.

    I've got zero problem next year if my safeties look like:
    Wilcox-Nickel with tons of man coverage duty and top back up at both spots.
    Heath-ST stud and 3rd Safety at both spots.

    That's the type of depth you want.

    Does anyone know the draft website they talked about where you can watch tape on all the prospects in a short time? I wrote it down and lost it. Lol

    Depends on the other players still available and whether or not anyone is interested in trading.

    If Pryor or Martin is there, he's my pick. If I can trade down a few, pick up a 3rd and still come away with a guy like Ealy, Nix or Clinton-Dix, I'd consider that a nice first day too.

    It's too bad they went Escobar instead of DL last April. This is the year you stick to your board and draft a freakishly good player at a "low priority" position. Eric Ebron would look mighty good down the line from Jason Witten.

    What I don't want to see is another Greg Ellis pick when there are major playmakers available at other positions of need.

    I have faith in Marinelli drafting great D-Line players. That is all.

    I agree. But we both know Carolina didn't into the draft expecting to spend the 1st two picks on DTs...it had to fall right for them.
    The smart thing they did was that even though they took one in the 1st, they couldn't pass up the obvious value when it was there again in the second .

    I mean, I thought Kwan Short was really great value where they got him in the 2nd round. I really thought we may have taken him at 31. And of course, Star falling to them in the 1st was real sweet.
