I also fancy a Kick returner like Corrdarell Patterson and Tavon Austin, someone who can get the yards every time because it seems like sproles has lost it.
I've been thinking for sometimes we need a smash mouth running back that can soften the D up and wear them down. A smash mouth tandam would be nice. When FB Collins run on Seattle the other night right there told me something, we need a punisher.

Because of the injuries I would have to say CB. Oline is another big concern but SP seems to find gems in rounds 3-7. As for a pounding RB Hillard from LSU will be there late. We had good luck with his uncle!

Lets not forget Terron Armstead will be like a draft pick this year. Id like to see the best defensive player in the first round and possibly in the 2nd round.

1. O-line
2. I'm torn between a LB or DB
3. Whichever we don't choose from pick 2
4. O-line

I agree with we need a smashmouth type of player(s)

Now if you are going to go that route look for a very polished back. i am not going into ingram. trade keep not the topic

round 2

Charles Sims RB West Virgina
5116 213 4.54/4.44

Most versatile RB in the college? A nightmare to defend?
Smooth, fluid runner on the edges, size and strength run effectively between the tackles. Big plus superb receiving skills

Could be SP dream at the next level.

His blocking skill are solid but do need work.

trade back? pick Charles and then trade Ingram? what a can worms lol

If he comes out i like Ty Montgomery. big strong good speed and very very quick. he would plug right into to the saints WR also. Stanford should be an indicator of his ability to pick up on the play book. you might assume.

Ty Montgomery WR/KR Stanford
6015 215 4.52/4.42

Sure handed, extremely quick, good top end speed and the best part is he built to take on tacklers.

I want speed and agression. I don't care what position, just a nasty smashmouth badass on either side of the line.

Vaccaro was a great start, now lets grab a LB version of him.

218? Kind of small for a LB in the NFL? Can't be an every down back at that size...

A big, nasty ILB is what I want on the D, a rush ILB so to speak with cover skills. And a safety!!
