    Depending on the outcome of the Jets/Chargers, we'll be drafting in one of these two spots.

    Who do you take? While we don't have any glaring needs, a replacement for Flozell as well as some safety help must be at the top of the list. Kicker as well but we're not Al Davis (but I wouldn't hesitate to drop a 5th rounder on Tiffin or Swenson).

    I'm thinking the offensive side of the ball and hoping for a tackle to fall. If not I hope we don't reach for a need.

    Seeing that we might not see Felix Jones at KR anymore, we might need to address the situation. I expect to see FJ as the full time RB now.

    That being said I'd like to see us draft a playmaker type who we can groom into a FT position, but while he is waiting in the wings he can contribute to ST in the way that Harvin did this year.

    I really really like this kid Mardy Gilyard from Cincy.

    We have to hope one of the following players slips down to us (or close enough for us to trade up to)

    Earl Thomas S Texas
    Dez Bryant WR Oklahoma State
    Mike Iupati G Idaho
    Trent Williams T Oklahoma
    Anthony Davis T Rutgers
    Brian Bulaga T Iowa
    Brian Price DL UCLA
    Charles Brown T USC

    then if you figure these guys are likely Top 10 picks then it means someone from my list should slip to us..

    Ndamukong Suh DT Nebraska
    Gerald McCoy DT Oklahoma
    Russell Okung T Oklahoma State
    Eric Berry S Tennessee
    Rolando McClain LB Alabama
    Jimmy Clausen QB Notre Dame
    Sam Bradford QB Oklahoma
    Joe Haden CB Florida
    Bruce Campbell T Maryland
    Derrick Morgan DE Georgia Tech

    Another thing I've been thinking about is IF the Rams don't take a QB 1st overall, they most likely will take one with the first pick in the 2nd. Teams who want a QB but not pay them Top 15 type money, will want to jump ahead of the Rams and get a guy like Colt McCoy, Tim Tebow, or Tony Pike... similar to the years we traded down and teams took JP Losman and Brady Quinn. At 27/28, I can see us being in that spot again, especially if guys we like our long gone.

    i like the trade down idea but we need to draft good o-linemen early(even if requires moving up a few spots).even our defense is affected by poor o-line play.Without fixing the line anything else seems futile.

    God forbid if we had another Felix Jones on this roster.

    Only player on O who showed up today.

    unfortunately the guys in bold I feel will not be there or even close for trade down when we pick.

    Earl Thomas
    Anthony Davis
    Mike Iupati
    Bruce Campbell
    Brian Baluga

    Those guys will be there in the 15-28 range.

    Berry is untouchable
    Suh is untouchable
    Okung is untouchable
    Dez is untouchable

    It's a shame because Berry would make our defense elite. 2000 Ravens elite.

    He'd probably be the BPA if he's still there at 27. That'd be an interesting situation to be in. He's not needed but can you imagine Spiller and Jones in the same backfield.

    He's a far more versatile Felix Jones.

    Takes care of the PR and KR spot.

    He's like a Bush or Westbrook in the passing game.

    1) Felix 2) CJ 3) Choice

    You can use him as a slot WR.

    If we draft CJ Spiller to use him like the Vikings use Percy Harvin that would be a decent move. Isn't our biggest need but gives us a homerun return guy and a speedy playmaker to mix in with our already versatile offense.

    For some reason, I see Jerry trading out of the 1st round because there was no one at #27 worth taking with the pick....
