You dreaming we would have to pay to much for him. Plus he cramps up to much.

Kelvin Sheppard could be had with one of our 3rd round picks. However he is a ILB, not a OLB where we need help...

We have two starting caliber CB's, drafted one with our 1st rounder last year, have a former 1st rnd CB in Jenkins who can play that in a pinch and you want to give up picks to move up and continue to address this position? Don't get me wrong, great prospect, but one of our least need positions for sure. Unless the move up price was minimal or he miraculously fell to us, it would be crazy to think he could ever seen black and gold duds.

Yep; Projected as a top 3 pick[Rated as the #1 CB] is just decent...

I agree. Get some real passrush and Greer and Porter will turn into superstars. Although I think Greer might be the nickle back next year with Robinson starting with Porter.

Will you eat crow when the Broncos or Bills draft him 2nd or 3rd?

Strato; I looked at the list and there will be talent available as the Saints have four picks (#24, 56, 72, and 88) in the first three rounds!

I guess you missed the games where he had completely shut those two down. It works both ways. He's going to light up the combine and is a sure fire top 10 pick because of his athleticism and potential. He's one of those guys that will be a better pro than college player... I do believe some of that college hype he received was over the top.

The A&M LSU game was the first time I ever saw Von Miller play... I was very impressed and would not be disappointed to see him on our roster. I thought he would be a little bigger making him a tweener type... but he isn't.

Everyone is entitled to be stupid, but some abuse the privilege.

All little common sense goes a long way.

I guess Im just not seeing that we need more DB's, were pretty deep. Id rather focus on needs OL, DL, LB, and WR core.
