    yep, Haden has turned out to be a very good player and it was Ryan who was the DC in Cleveland when they drafted him.
    Jenkins was the better CB on Florida that year.
    Jenkins is a top 10 CB if not top 5 if it wasn't for his off the field concerns.

    yep I know, but this year he has really matured and he says getting kicked out of Florida really woke him up and it has shown this year.

    Then CB
    Then O line

    I want DeCastro in a big way. Jenkins is very talented but is concern about his off-field issues. Now if we could get him in the 2nd along with Decastro in the first, I would be a happy man. I don't think he would last to the 14th pick of the 2nd rd though.

    I would say take the BPA at:


    I will make a special exception if DeCastro is still on the board as some say he is really the #2 player available. If that is the case and he is still available then draft him. Otherwise I say go defense. If we have several players grouped close together and none are all that much better than another one, I would drop back to try and get an extra 3rd so we can get an extra OG. It is supposed to be a great OG draft according to Wes Bunting and I wouldn't mind trying to pick 2 of them - one in second and one in the third round. We can then use the other two picks on defense - hopefully one OLB/DE and one CB.

    I still really hope we can find a good vet pass rusher who will play opposite Ware in the nickel in FA. Finding one such player will make a tremendous difference in our defense. If we can find said playe, add a CB to displace TNew and Bruce Carter can play ILB we may have a pretty good defense next year.

    If we can add the two OGs we may have a pretty good offense next year.

    We really need another great draft. We have been put in such a bind by the horror stories that were the drafts of 2007, 2008 and 2009.

    I think alot of it comes from one big game he had during the season. I believe it was against Georgia in one of the first games of the year. He had a 68-yard fake punt that he ran in for a TD, recovered a fumble for a TD, and recovered on onside kick at the end of the game.

    I guess that is the good and bad thing of this off season.

    We need help in so many areas is the bad thing, but there are a number of players we could take in the draft that should be able to come in an contribute quickly...we just have to get the right guys.

    Probably unattainable except in a trade up which would cost us a 2nd rounder at least. The other option is Kirkpatrick who would work at #14.

    I wouldn't rule out the Cards taking a LB.

    How about Dont'a Hightower?

    Dude on the field with Bruce Carter, Sean Lee, and DeMarcus wouldn't be fair.

    I would trade up for Morris Claiborne. People say he's the better CB between he and Peterson, actually.

    Claiborne is more of a pure, prototypical CB.

    Depends on how far up you have to trade to get him. If he's projected to go around 5-8, I think we'd have to give up to much to get him. This is a deep draft for DB's, so we should get a good one, even if we don't take one till the 3rd round. It's also deep for guards, so where as I would love to get DeCastro, there will still be plenty of others to choose from.

    I'd like to see us go DE/OLB with the first pick (assuming there's a good one there to take). We absolutely have to improve our pass rush.

    I'll admit, the idea perks my interest. I'm not counting it out.
