hey, you may or may not believe a player will be available at a certain spot, so don't bash me for that(who really knows who will still be where, i.e. randy moss 1998). Just let me know if you think the picks help the team or not, if you like the picks, and what you would do different. This draft is assuming that there is no deal for howard forthcoming. Obviously, my draft would change if we added him. *trade down from #11 to #16 with saints and acquire #40 2nd round *trade down from #20 to #29 with indianapolis and acquiure pick #60 2nd round and #129 4th round *trad down from #29 to #35 with philly and acquire #77 3rd round and #132 4th round new draft order 1st round #16 2nd round #'s 35, 40, 42,60 3rd round #77 4th round #109, 132 5th round #148 6th round #208, 209 7th round #224 pick reason #16 shawne merriman de need a pass rush more than anything else #35 kevin burnett lb need to add playmakers to mediocre lb corps #40 roddy white wr youth and speed for wr #42 darryl blackstock lb still more depth and talent needed at lb #60 antajj hawthorne dt future starter will backup ferg until ready #77 vincent fuller s need to add a starter and quality depth at s #109 josh bullocks s see above #132 matt jones wr can't pass up his rare talent here #148 darren sproles rb/kr another meggett for BP? #208 brandon jacods rb big back worth a look here, maybe at fb #209 jerome mathis wr/kr small school, big talent, lightning fast #224 mike nugent k if still on board, we need an upgrade the only need not addressed is ol, however, we spent a 2nd and a 3rd on ol last year and never got to see either one of them play. may still add a rt after june 1 cuts and could draft one as well. i defend the selection of 2 lbs and 2 s this way. who do we have at linebacker other than dat? james is a question mark and singleton is average at best. all we have left are ndfa. we need more talent at lb and these two will add depth and help out greatly on special teams until ready to start. we need a starter at fs and depth at both s positions. fuller and bullocks give us both as well as improving special teams play. cant really afford to keep hoping that late round and ndfa will fix the safety spot. this draft also addresses our youth, depth, and playmaking ability at wr as well as finding a backup or two for julius and a couple of possible return specialists and a kicker. this will give us a lot more playmaking ability all over the defense as well as much needed quality depth for a change. with the wr additions added to morgan, crayton and copper we would have a good group to carry on once keyshawn and glenn retire. not likely that all of these players will fall this way or that bill and jerry make as many trades down, but for my money i would be thrilled with this draft. i based my picks on information gathered from TSN's draft preview.
