    Here are the four biggest needs after Free Agency, in no particular order

    Guard
    Center
    Safety
    Pass rushing DE/OLB

    'Course, a NT could change the last one if Rat moves to DE, which is very possible.

    So, the names in the first are:

    DeCastro
    Konz
    Barron
    Ingram/Upshaw/Poe

    I am sure any of these names will be called a reach by many. But obviously, any of these names would help right away.

    Other than these, who could we take that would be available, fill a need and not be a reach?

    Don't forget Cox ... I think he is running #1 option as of now. And people will definitely call him a reach (just like they did Watt last year)

    So, in essence, everyone is a reach?

    When you order off the menu at #14 you usually get warts and wrinkles on the side not as many as #45. Want to not reach pick #1 it is the only position that supports your argument.

    "Big mistake to pass on this kid at any point in the first round if you're looking for a dominating future pass rusher who will play the run just as well." Fletcher Cox per the huddlereport

    I like him and Decastro in the first, would love to see us with three OKlahoma picks in this draft, Flemming CB, Ronnell Lewis LB,
    Travis Lewis LB, and Broyles WR,

    Whoever we draft will be compared to the 500 hundred players that follow him into the NFL. Someone will be better.

    For the pessimist.


    Not for the realist.

    Tanneyhill would be a reach. Anybody else who could come in here on either side of the ball and make an impact from day one is not a reach.
