    i think if we find someone we like in free agency we'll go that route but i wouldn't mind adding a young guy to the mix through the draft if the chips fall right. hopefully someone like thomas davis slips to us in the second.

    I have him a top 15 pick overall

    The Leonhard kid is too small but one hell of a football player reminds me of Kelso of the Bills.

    I can almost assure you UT's M. Huff won't be coming out. I watched an interview w/ him from mid-Oct, where he referenced several times players he'd be lining up w/, and the schedule they/he'd be playing.

    Also, I've seen more than 1 club's dir. of scouting say the safety talent in 05 as it stood now, wasn't that great.

    Davis of Georgia is a top 15 prospect and the rest is weak.

    I'll be wathcing out for Shazor from Michigan today. He may be a 2nd round guy.

    Davis and Nicholson don't strike me as ballhawks in the draft. I want a true FS who excels in coverage. If I see Roy playing outside of the box 80% of the plays again, I'll burn JJ's house down.

    and let's not forget that some of the best FS's actually play CB in college, but are a little big or a little exposed in man coverage for CB in the NFL...many of these hard hitting CB's can be had in rounds 4-7 and moved to FS.
