    There are four main players on the board who do you take

    Chad Jackson- could be a four wide receiver tandom.. with Terrell Ownes, Terry Glenn, Chad Jackson, and Patrick Crayton...

    Manny Lawson- could be one hell of a linebacker core with Demarcus Ware, Akin Adoyele, Bradie James, and Manny Lawson

    Jimmy Williams- this move could really solitify our secondary.. with Anthony Henry, Jimmy Williams, Roy Williams, and Terrance Newman.

    Mathias Kwaktia<Boston College Defensive End- could be real good depth to have at the Defensive End Position with Greg Ellis, Chris Canty, Marcus Spears, and Mathias Katkwatia

    MANNY LAWSON

    if he's there @ the 18th pick, we should be jumping like Danny Snyder on Week 2.

    Gotta take Lawson. Out of those four, Lawson should have the biggest impact to the team this season. Jackson would only see minimal snaps per game, Kwaktia may not even play every game, if at all. Williams would be solid, but I would rather get a safety in the second round, unless Lawson is gone and Carpenter can still be had in the second round. But I believe Lawson will have to ability to reek havoc on opposing defenses, especially if all the attention is on Ware, and his presents would help out Ayodele and James/Burnett on the inside.

    I just think the current vibe is that we are taking a lb whoever that may be, we still have some holes and I just can't see wr getting a first rounder or a safety eventhough we need one of each..

    Like most other people I think LB is where we need an immediate impact the most, other than FS which can be had in later rounds. Although between the WR's, I'd take Holmes over Jackson. I just don't trust workout wonders.

    Better Question?

    Chad Jackson - WR
    Winston Justice - OT
    Manny Lawson - OLB
    Michael Huff - FS

    All fall to 18 -- who does you take?

    Simple.

    Jackson wouldn't play very much behind TO and Glenn, plus Parcells has hinted that he isn't big on using a first rounder at WR.

    Williams is a good player but Jerry has already said that he can't see us using a 1st or a 2nd on a FS this year and we already have so much money tied up in the D secondary that I'd be shocked if we went DB in the first round.

    Mathias Kiwandoigheijrlkj is WAYYYYY too skinny for 3-4 DE and just doesn't have the movement skills to be a 3-4 OLB. Just doesn't fit our system. At all. none.

    Lawson is a perfect player to put opposite Ware in a spot where we don't have anyone except an older player coming off of injury who never really fit the scheme to begin with. He's well worth the 18th pick in the draft (particularly to a 3-4 team) and could make a huge difference on our defense. Oh, and it's at a position that Parcells has made perfectly clear that he will use a number 1 pick to fill.

    So, really, it just isn't even close.

    A better poll might have been:

    Carpenter, Lawson, Wimbley, McNeil, Ngata, and Cutler are sitting there at 18. You have no trade partners and so must pick at 18. Who do you take and who do you think Dallas would take?

    I think that might'be been a better question.

    Again...terrible choices...every one of those guys are reaches at #18...you have to trade the pick if those are your only options, but they won't be.

    If 'trade down' was an option I would have picked that.
