We wanted Willie McGinest, and while we clearly weren't willing to pay what Cleveland paid for him, we sought to pay a lot for a linebacker. Having a serious pass rusher opposite of Ware is the key to unleashing the potential of the 3-4. And clearly they aren't going to settle with Singleton. We made a play for McGinest and thought about Peterson strongly but didn't even attempt at talking to any of the big name safeties. We picked up Marcus Coleman at Free Safety, probably because the scout team wasn't really happy with what we could do at free safety in the draft. Not that we won't try to address it, we just didn't want to be in the position we had to reach for a player. Coleman is more than serviceable, and the worst case scenario you still have Keith Davis, and with a more serious pass rush the entire secondary is much better. I think at this point fixing the offensive line is still probably a priority over Free Safety, and probably even nose tackle is a priority over free safety. Probably something like this #1 OLB #2 NT & OG/OT #4 Free Safety #5 Cornerback #6 Fullback #7 Quarterback You have to know that finishing up this front seven is Parcells' biggest priority. It is why we drafted Kevin Burnett, but still signed Akin Ayodele (and then instantly told him that he would be playing the inside). P.S. we clearly thought enough of Fabini that we didn't resign Torrin Tucker when we had the chance at matching his offer sheet. We're fairly set at offensive tackle as long as we stay healthy. Same reason why we cut Jacob Rogers. We have potential in both Colombo and in Pettiti as well. Guard is probably a bigger sore spot, but the front office apparently has plenty of faith in Kosier, and probably will let Gurode compete at both C and G.
