    I really like Rambo for this defense. Great athlete, playmaker. I hope that he's still there when we pick in the second.

    Phillip Thomas is a guy I keep hearing good things about. Need to take a closer look at him.

    Just this (he is #19):


    [FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2]12/14/12 - J.J. Wilcox has played strong safety for one season for Georgia Southern. But that didn't keep him from receiving an invitation to the Senior Bowl. Wilcox was one of 13 players who game officials confirmed on Wednesday has accepted invitations to the Mobile all-star game. "It's a great showcase to be able to show off Georgia Southern to the nation," Wilcox said. "It's a blessing. I was in the right spot at the right time. The coaches put me in a great position, and it's a blessing and a privilege just to be able to play."[/SIZE][/FONT][FONT=Verdana,Geneva,Arial,Helvetica,sans-serif][SIZE=-2]Wilcox (6-foot-0, 215 pounds) spent his first three seasons with the Eagles on offense, mainly as a slot receiver. During that time, he rushed 137 times for 964 yards - a nifty 7 yards per carry average - and 13 touchdowns. He caught 45 passes for 898 yards and four scores. But this season, he was switched to the Georgia Southern secondary, where he's made 84 tackles and intercepted two passes. He's also returned kickoffs for an average of 25.5 yards on 30 attempts. - Mark Inabinett, Alabama Live [/SIZE][/FONT]

    Very poor list--no Reid,Elam or Jefferson. What a joke.

    We need line help both offense and defense. Unless it is the best available player I won't be happy if we draft a safety early.

    He should still be there when we pick. I'd be thrilled with him being in our secondary! Had he played all season and not had the suspension he would have been a 1st rnder

    I think teams know that which is why I worry he could go at the end of the first or early second.
