    With the way FA has gone so far, the outrageous prices players are getting, and our current holes this is a draft I think would be beneficial for our team now and in the future.

    1. Justin Blalock OG/T Texas- With the price of OL this offseason, I think this is a much needed pick. I'd look for a trade down first, but I really don't see one happening. Blalock really helped himself putting up 40 reps at the combine and running a 5.10 40-yard dash. He brings a nasty demeanor along with some good versatility.

    2. Marcus McCauley CB Fresno St.- I think that Henry stays put and we add a vetern FS through free agency, but Glenn is aging and neither Reeves or Jones appear ready to step up. McCauley is a bit raw and had a down senior season, but he's got all the physical tools you look for. Could develop into a solid nickel corner, if not an eventual starter.

    3. Brian Robinson DE/LB Texas- It appears that Wade is looking for another hybrid to add into the mix and I think this is our guy. His combine times were similar to Ware's from a year ago, plus he's got previous experience as a LB in college. Wade talked to him about playing both inside and outside, and his special teams play will be valued early on.

    4. Kyle Young OL Fresno St.- Another big OL with great versatility. He had some problems in his senior season, and wasn't invited to the combine but I think a good pro day and good interviews might sneak him back into day 1. He should be a decent value here.

    5. Justin Medlock K UCLA- We haven't heard anything about Grammatica yet, and I wonder if we're going to bring him back or not. Medlock has a strong, accurate leg that should provide some consistency that we've lacked since 2004.

    6a. Ola Dagunduro DT Nebraska- Big man that can move. He's good at taking up blockers in the middle, but can provide a decent pass rush of his own. Should provide some depth behind Ferguson.

    6b. Yamon Figurs WR/KR Kansas St.- A bit on the frail side, but his speed will be a welcomed addition in the return game and he might develop into a decent WR.

    7a. LeRon McClain FB Alabama- Versatile FB that is a good lead blocker, but is also a threat as a receiver. Should give Polite a good run for his money and might beat him out.

    7b. Ameer Ismail OLB Western Michigan- 45.5TFL and 25 sacks over the last 2 years wasn't enough to get him invited to the combine. He's slightly undersized for the 3-4, but if he can bulk up he could be a decent sleeper. At this point he's a PS project though.

    7c. Toby Korrodi QB Central Missouri- Had the strongest arm at the combine. Isn't very mobile, but he demonstrated good accuracy in college and should be a decent PS candidate to develop into a backup.

    for the record, it is Brian Robison......I know we are all used to Robinson, but there is no n before the s in his name.

    not a bad draft...though I would take a different FB....and I don't like your 7th rounders....but then again, I bet all of us would get different 7th rounders

    FB Jesse Allen VaTech is the guy I would take in the late rounds. He seems to be an overachiever, with a Rudy-type work ethic.

    Trade down in the 1st and add 3rd, 6th
    1 - G/T Justin Blalock - Texas
    2 - WR/KR Anthony Gonzalez - tOSU
    3 - DT Kareem Brown - the U
    3 - OLB Brian Robison Texas
    4 - ILB Zak DeOssie - Brown
    5 - CB/KR Travarous Bain - Hampton
    6 - QB Justin Rascati - James Madison / QB Jared Zabransky - Boise St.
    6 - OL Jermon Bushrod - Towson St.
    6 - RB/WR/KR Ramonce Taylor - Texas College (questionable character, but he has awesome talent, and at a late 6th, the reward is greater than the risk)
    7 - FB Jesse Allen - Virginia Tech (6' 247 4.69, Rudy-type of work ethic)
    7 - OLB Jacob Ford - Central Arkansas
    7 - OL Ed McCarthy - Yale

    I like it, although Yamon Figurs will go a couple of rounds earlier than you have him IMO

    Ismail may too

    With the recent signing of Leonard Davis i cant really see the need to draft Blalock, unless he is the Best Player Available....But if dont resign Columbo or another Tackle....Than the Blalock pick would be great.

    The mock is decent....I'm all for taking (BPA) in the 1st round...And if thats Blalock then i'm ok with that pick....I like McCauley, but he could slide to round 3 due to his poor senior season..But if he's the highest rated corner on the board then it would fill a need.....Brian Robison is a good player but i also think the 3rd round is too high for him.....But i like your later picks of the FB McClain and WR Figurs.....And spending a 7th rounder on Korrordi, seems like a safe pick....But i would like to see us getting a QB in the mIddle rounds....Maybe Kolb if he slides to 4 or 5...Or even Chris Leak in the 5th or 6th.

    I like...

    Love the Blalock, Gonzalez, Robison, and make that Zabransky with the 6th. Thos picks would be really solid the other are nice as well, but love those in particular.

    I agree if Skyler Green can go in the 4th round, Figurs will go alot higher than the 6th round with proven speed. I think Raymonce Taylor will as well.
