Wouldn't mind grabbing Frederick in the 3rd or 4th. A great run blocker, which we could use.

Andre Smith looks like he turned it around for the Bengals. Would be a huge upgrade at RT. Plus he's only 25.

Smith, Loadholt, or Vollmer at RT and we're well on our way. Justice started out alright, but lately he's been getting beat down.

A question for many of you.....

As we keep winning, our chances of getting Warmack are getting smaller and smaller.

I appreciate that DeCastro fell to 24th, but that was in a much, much better draft, and reportedly Warmack grades out even higher.

So, the chances of getting him are slim and none and I think Slim is riding out of town.

So my question is.... why do you keep posting about picking him in the first round?? How is it going to happen in your mind?

Are we making a trade up? Do you really think he's going to fall to the low or mid-20's where we'll likely pick?

I'm curious.....

I love Warmack but if we dont get him i want Travis Frederick in the 3rd. If Matt Elam is gone as well then i say trade out of the 1st back to the early 2nd.

while i agree that it's unlikely he falls to the colts, especially if teams like the rams and cowboys pick ahead of them, guards rarely go higher than 20...i THINK steve hutchinson was the highest going at 16.

so he finally gets it together during a contract year....shocking. although i read he played pretty well last year.

Anyone but Winston Justice at right tackle. He is not consistent at all!

I really think we can talk Ryan Clady into leaving the Broncos. Move Costanzo to right tackle and we're set. Otherwise, I would sign Vollmer and look at spending some money on a guard as well. I wouldn't draft a guard. I would stick to defense in the draft.

people need to forget about clady, it's not going to happen. even if he wants to leave, which he probably doesn't, elway can still franchise him.

Just a question: is NE really pondering letting Vollmer leave? Seems rather unlikely (I could be wrong)

who knows, but vollmer does have a history of back problems...not something you want in a 6'8 tackle. they did draft the canon kid a couple years ago, but not sure how he has progressed.

    • Just to prove it really is possible:       Had to adjust some things because Johnson went a few picks ahead and Qualls went way earlier than expected. But I pretty much was able to get the first 4 picks all in order.
    •   If the Saints make the playoffs in the next year or two again with Brees nearing his final run in the league, I think they might have to consider him. Or they should. His stats are usually off the charts, but they need to be back in the playoffs. 
    •   I'd love to get him in the third or fourth. Fast physical lber with a lot of pop in his tackles. He'd go sooner if he didn't get hurt. 
    •   I like it too though I am torn on Smoot. 
    • I think the argument at this point is due to the lack of talent elsewhere. We have Anderson, Langford, Ridgeway and to a lesser extent Kerr (if we keep him) at DE. That is a fairly solid rotation, although not elite. That being said, the 2 most promising players are very young and could mature into above average - elite players given time and reps. Not really necessary to write them off and relegate them further down the depth chart. With the way the CBA is, the best chance for them to progress is in game situations.    OLB on the other hand, we have Maggitt, Ayers and a couple camp bodies on the roster. We essentially have 2 rotational guys (at best) that have no business starting, and nothing else.    OLB = Major need DE = Not major need   Im not against grabbing a DE in this draft (if they are clearly the top player on the board, or at least the top defensive player) simply because any talented player will help the defense at this point, but I wouldnt call DE a position of Major Need.
