If We Have 3 Of The Top 33 Picks...who Do You Want?


Recommended Posts

lol...fair enough..he didn't specify exactly what picks they'd be. Though the trade means we would lose the #1 pick and therefore we'd lost the opportunity at Luck too unless somehow he drops from the #1 pick.

If we could trade the #1 for 2 first round picks that would still allow us to get Brandon Thompson and Morris Claiborn in the first round, and Manti Te'o in the 2nd round.....I think I'd have to take a cold shower after the draft. lol

If we were to trade the pick, i would draft those two guys if possible.

How about: Dre Kirkpatrick, CB from Alabama, Dont'a Hightower, ILB from Alabama, and Courtney Upshaw, OLB from Alabama. Then in the 3rd round we could take Mark Barron, SS from Alabama. That'd be pretty sweet! They are all excellent players, and they've already got the continuity thing down. We could switch to a 3-4 defense with a lineup something like this:

DE- Robert Mathis

DT- Drake Nevis

DE- Dwight Freeney

OLB- Pat Angerer

ILB- Donta Hightower

ILB- Courtney Upshaw

OLB- Kavell Conner/Jerry Hughes

CB- Dre Kirkpatrick

SS- Mark Barron

FS- Antoine Bethea

CB- Jerrod Powers

Thoughts?

That's a small dline for a 3-4 team.

True, but perhaps with the size of Hightower and Upshaw at the LBs, and Mark Barron at SS, the lack of d-line size could be compensated for.

Or perhaps, say we lose Mathis to free agency and sign Paul Soliai, DT from the dolphins (6'4", 355lbs). Then we could have a d-line of:

DE- Drake Nevis

DT- Paul Soliai

DE- Dwight Freeney

I heard the Panthers are going with a 3-4 next year, so why not the Colts, especially if Peyton does not come back.

If Peyton does not come back, make Mathis and Freeney OLBs, with Wheeler, Angerer and Hughes as OLB backups. Make Moala and Anderson the DEs with Brayton as a DE backup. Nevis and AJ can be part of the NT rotation. Kavell Conner, who is already lost in coverage, does not have a place in the 3-4, IMO.

Draft/obtain in free agency a 3-4 MLB, 3-4 NT and 2 man corners - so technically, by adding just 4 to 5 pieces, we can become a 3-4 D.

There are so many possibilities, who knows what picks we will end up with. I'll give two different lists based on 2 different scenarios:

-We keep the #1 pick...

Round 1: QB Andrew Luck

Round 2: CB Alfonso Denard, or S Mark Barron

Round 3: Best available OG/CB/DT

-We trade the #1 pick and acquire multiple mid-round picks in the 1st and 2nd round...

Round 1: CB Morris Claiborne (he is my most-wanted player in the draft)

Round 1: OG David DeCastro

Round 2: CB Alfonso Denard, or S Mark Barron

Round 2: DT Jared Crick, or WR Jeff Fuller, or QB Nick Foles

That's right..any 3

WE could trade our No.1 for Miami's 1 & 2...and we'd draft 2, 33 and 34..

But there are two teams with two No. 1s..

not going to happen. If the Polians are picking, those 2 picks are going to be misses anyway. Why not pick the can't-miss prospect every NFL scout unanimously agrees upon...
