    I watched almost all the Arkansas games. Houston is the real deal. He is a heck of a lot closer to a shutdown corner than Aaron Ross from UT. He is the best man to man cover corner I remember seeing for a while. A much different player from Carrol who was a great athlete but never great in man coverage. Houston will start as a rookie and have a good long career in the NFL.

    And also Arkansas didn't always dominate time of possesion because a lot of those rushing yards came of 80 yard sprints from both Jones (pure speed) and McFadden (beautiful stiff-arm).

    have some down time before FA begins?

    Two Major Assumptions:

    1. We re-sign Colombo, and
    2. We sign an OG in FA

    Round 1
    C. Houston, CB, Arkansas (alt. A. Ross, CB, Texas)

    Round 2
    L. Woodley, OLB, Michigan
    Woodley would play OLB in Wade's 34

    Round 3
    A. Allison, WR, E. Carolina (alt. P. Williams, WR or S. Smith, WR USC)

    Round 4
    Doug Free, OT, N. Illinois
    Free would be groomed to play LT and would provide some depth along with McQuisten. Think Free could also play either OT position, giving us some versatility.

    Round 5
    J. Beck, QB, BYU
    Beck would be brought along slowly, like Romo. Hopefully, we pick up a solid veteran QB in FA for Beck to learn from.

    Round 6
    A. M Wrotto, OG, Georgia Tech
    Wrotto needs development work at OG, but he has the tools. Assuming we sign an OG in FA, Wrotto could be given a year or two to improve his skills.

    B. P. Soliai, NT, Utah
    Soliai competes versus M. Stanley as a back-up to Fergy.

    Round 7
    A. Nate Ilaoa, RB, Hawaii
    Robert Newhouse's stature. He appears to have some receiving skills as well. I don't know if he lasts this long, but I thought I'd throw him in here.

    B. J. Ford, LB, Central Arkansas
    Again, this may be too late for him. But basically taking another LB prospect who Wade can groom for his defense.

    C. M. Allan, TE, Whitworth
    Had 53 receptions for 1,100 yards for a 20.8 avg (and 9 TDs). Maybe could also be used as an H-Back?

    Feedback welcome.

    Not sure if several of these players will last this long, but please feel free to give alternatives.

    I like the Round 1 pick but Round 2 not so much. I don't think we need another OLB with Ellis, Carpenter, Ware, and Burnett.

    Not sure, but after the top 3, it's anybody's guess.

    I love that pick.

    Only got to see him play a couple of times but boy was he impressive.

    Looked like a cannon ball.

    And with picking him with one of 3 7th round picks it is not much of a risk to see what he could do for us. No I have no illusions he would be a future full time starter but still I bet he would become a fan favorite if he got a few touches here and there.

    I think Jones just said the other day they were leaning towards leaving Henry at CB, which to me means there is no way our 1st rd pick with be a CB

    I must have missed that comment by JJ. Don't remember him alluding to that at all.

    That would be an outstanding draft. Then I would wake up from my dream.

    He mentioned we would not rule it out, but it was not definite.

    Looks good except for round one. I'd rather have Hughes or Revis. My first preference is Reggie Nelson, as I feel he could play CB in the NFL.

    I like the Woodley pick alot as well.

    I'd like to get a receiver in the second round and LB in the third, but other than that not bad at all.

    Looks damn good to me. I'd be very pleased. Maybe exchange Houston for one of the other CBs, it's whatever.

    I think the first 3 picks are definitely plausible.

    Woodley is apparently falling a little bit because he didn't do much at the Combine in terms of running, drills, etc.

    In the 1st, I'd think that either one of the two CBs I mentioned would be there.

    And in the 3rd, several good WRs should be around.

    It gets a bit hairy Day 2, IMO.

    Yeah day 2 of the NFL draft is pretty much teams just taking whoever they want, not thinking too much about draft position. It is a lot harder to try and guess who teams are going to take day 2 IMO, it's a mess.
