    Upon further review: OLB Eric Martin, Nebraska

    I agree with the OP's analysis of Martin. In the highlight video of him, I saw him rush the passer well; play the run well, and cover on special teams. I did not see him drop back into coverage one time, and that will be the make or break for this player. If he can pick up on the coverage responsibilities of playing OLB, he has a chance. If he can't, at 245, he's way too small to play DE, especially in a 3-4.

    At the least, he should be primed to be an excellent kicking game player...

    This is very good. And hey, we had another player named Eric Martin once upon a time and he worked out very well. Let's add another! I can totally see this guy making the team.

    I heard Mel Kiper on the radio last night say that he thought Hightower would go in the second or third round.

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    Everson Griffen had a first round rating and fell to the fouth. Charles Brown had a first round rating and fell to the bottom of the second. Cam Thomas was expected to go in the second and fell to the fifth.

    Locker and Ponder went at the top of the first. Tyson Alualu went at the top of the first. TIM TEBOW WENT IN THE FIRST ROUND!

    Injury and character issues push players down: Da'Quan Bowers and Mike Williams.

    GMs try to outsmart the room and make questionable picks in the first round and continue to do so in every other round. Good players, for what ever reason, fall.

    I'd be surprised if Hightower fell, but stranger things have happened. I'd be surprised if Crick was available in the fourth, but he did miss most of the year with injury...There is also the possibility that Hightower, Fleener, Crick and Wolfe are stupid and fall because of that.

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    I had Cam Johnson DE, Virgina as the player i would move up to get but i have changed my mind after watching him play more.

    Bruce Irvin, OLB 6- 2 245, is a very interesting prospect. combine will move him up the boards to the top of the 2nd and maybe even into the first. his interviews may drop him into the third. He is a tweener OLB/DE i would love to see at WLB teamed with Martez Wilson at SLB. Speed speed and more speed with great football skills. 34 vs 43 who cares with his skill set.

    Dontari Poe, DT 6-5 350lbs declared hmmm combine will make him or break him.


    Round 2-
    Donta Hightower - ILB ? really? he will be long gone
    Vinny Curry - interesting off the board. over hyped?
    Round 3- Jarius Wright - jitter bug still looking at him.
    Round 4- Coby Fleener - maybe in the 2nd
    Round 4- Jared Crick - in the 4th? mid second round
    Round 5- Derek Wolfe - in the 5th? steal
    Rounds 6 and 7- Your Call

    Got to have a defense that can rush four and require the opposing quarterback to throw the ball by the league average of 3.2 seconds...

    Our secondary will get amazingly better - fast.

    Maybe we can look at a potential big play wide receiver in the middle of the draft. It seems like our big play/quick strike ability has been lacking.

    WR Jarius Wright ARK 5'10" 180lbs
    63 catches 1029 yards 11 TDs

    1) Brandon Jenkins DE/OLB... Fla St.2)Bruce Irvan DE/ OLB W. Virginia..3) Travis Lewis OLB Oklahoma..

    Round 3 = well we can go a few ways here.. have a couple of Favorites
    1) Michael Brewster C Ohio St.. we seem to have good luck drafting Ohio State players..2) Keenan Robinson OLB Texas..3) Robert Lester S Alabama... might be a good spot to pick this guy up if he's there..

    I will add rest of picks at a later date...
    We definitely need to fill a linebacker position. I honestly believe we've never replenished from losing Scott Fujita....

    Pre Combine Draft Wish List

    Devin Taylor*, DE/OLB, South Carolina is one Jr i hope comes out.
    Weak secondary for the complete package. once again Jr are the key and even then most should stay in school for another year.

    there is

    Winston Guy Jr., S, Kentucky
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 210.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.49

    Sean Baker, S, Ball State
    Height: 6-1. Weight: 200.
    Projected 40 Time: 4.55

    TE Coby Fleener is tempting. i could accept 2 TE in the draft

    Chris Rainey hmmmm i look at him to go higher
