I would agree with everyone on your list except Dorsey. I don't trust his ability to stay healthy. He didn't make one play yesterday and Arkansas was running right up the middle on him.

Ability to stay healthy? The guy got illegally chop blocked, and he's obviously not the same. He was completely healthy before that, and by far the best defensive player in the country. I think that ever since that cheap shot by the Auburn offensive line, he hasn't been the same. So I wouldn't really blame Glenn for that. I absolutely believe that if we have the chance to draft him, we'd be retarded not to.

As far as the rest of that list goes, wayyyyyy too many slow Big Ten players on that list. I think Lauranaitis is very overrated. Dan Connor might be a good one, but I think if we're going to go after a linebacker, we need to have a guy who can get sideline-to-sideline. I really like Keith Rivers.

I like Quentin Groves too, but we don't exactly need another defensive end. Let's just say we have more pressing needs. *Cough* *Cough* Jason David/Mark Simoneau

... but if he "hasn't been the same", regardless of how he got injured, why draft him?

Re: 2008 draft wish list

My wish is for at least two of the top JR CB and OT to come out for the draft. That would make this one of the deepest at those positions in recent years. We got to end up with one or both positions in day one. Lets finish of the rebuild and start a new with the D. Oh yeah we are talking the saints here. They have in last 2 years of the draft went away from the deep positions and draft players from the shallower side of the draft pool. So no telling. Maybe they will surprise me this year. CB/S, MLB or RB(depends on Duce) and LT on day one. Nah wont happen
