    if it came down to those two to choose from in the first...who would you take?? or who should be taken?

    I think I am leaning toward DeCastro to solidify the OL. Then focus on D the rest of the draft with the exception of a TE and WR.

    Flip a coin for me, but I think Jerry would take Ingram.
    I think Jerry ranks pass rusher over OG.
    Also you can find a day one starting OG in the 2nd round. Finding a top pass rusher in the 2nd round isn't as easy.

    I'm starting to prefer Mercellus over the other pass rushers/OLBs.

    but can you find a OG that looks to have the potential to be a strong 10+ yr starter?

    Don't really like Ingram all that much anymore. We need a pass rusher and he just doesn't have the production you'd like to see.

    Given the choice, I'd take Decastro

    I think both these guys might be rated pretty close on our bard but they will take Ingram over Decastro.

    Me too. I still want DeCastro over anybody but feel like we are going pass rusher. I like Ingram too but Mercellus is really intriguing.

    I'd be happy with either one. I just think the OG class is deeper. So, it would be tempting to take Ingram (who will not be there anyway) and get a starting OG in the 2nd round.

    I doubt Ingram lasts that long. He is the best pass rusher in a weak class.

    My biggest issue with Ingram is where does he play? Classic tweener too big for LB too small for DL.

    This isn't even a close call.

    DeCastro by several million miles.

    Ingram = Spencer Clone [Net team improvement = 0 as he will not make more of an impact than Spencer (or possibly negative while he learns)]

    DeCastro = 10 year Pro Bowler [Net team improvement = Massive over who he would replace]

    The only reason to take Ingram is for salary cap relief to put a mini-Spencer in the lineup for less money. And if we are looking only salary cap relief in the 1st round and not talent improvement, than we are hosed.
