1a. Gosder Cherilus, OT, BC – Flo is probably going to walk and Columbo is entering the final year of his contract. OT Is the one need position that no one is talking about. Cherilus can come in and compete right away for the starting LT spot or serve as a possible replacement for Columbo a year from now. We need to build an elite line since our fortunes are dependent on the success of Romo. Good value at this point for a critical position. 1b. Tracy Porter, CB, Illinois – Fast and athletic corner whose game is likened to Newman’s. He has been impressing at the senior bowl and is consider a potential “shut-down” corner. Started playing football relatively late in life so has plenty of upside as well. Immediate starter as 3rd cb. 2. Andre Caldwell, WR, Florida – My pick for this year’s Boldin/Colston/Bowe. Is exceptionally fast, strong, runs great routes, and has reliable hands. Considering that our WR depth consists of Owens, Crayton, Hurd, Austin, and Stanback, Caldwell shouldn’t have any problem getting some playing time the first year despite the knock on UF receivers. 3. Marcus Harrison, DT, Arkansas – Fergie will not play forever and with the impending move of Raitliff to DE (see Spears trade rumors) we are suddenly thin at the anchor position on our defensive front. Harrison is a big man (315 lbs), athletic (runs a sub 5.0), and can both hold is own against the run and harass the quarterback. May not get much PT if Fergie returns next year but could be a regular fixture on the DL rotation after a year of seasoning. 4. Terrence Wheatley, CB, Colorado – Another attempt to upgrade the talent and depth of our defensive backfield with a fast and athletic prospect who also defends well against the run. 5. Cory Boyd, RB, South Carolina – Not the flashy marquis running back that many hope we'll draft on the first day but could play a role similar to Kevin Faulk of NE as a receiver out of the backfield, a blocker, and running mate to MBIII. Gives offense versatility without any let down of intensity when substituting with MBIII as Boyd runs extremely hard himself. We'll have a punishing running duo. 6. Kevin Robinson, WR, Utah State – Is getting good press as a solid WR prospect and return man. As with CB, we need an infusion of talent in the WR corps, and Robinson may provide an upgrade over some of our backups. 7. Robbie Krutilla, C, Western Michigan – Gurode worries me with his snapping miscues and reputation for being flaky mentally. At some point, perhaps even in earlier rounds, we will need to find a backup who is capable of starting in the event that Gurode gets injured and reverts to his former play.
