Also - I agree with the above posters saying Jason Verrett is a beast. I would love that pick.
I'm not sold on him. He seems to be one dimensional and we need a DE/OLB that can stop the run as well as rush the passer.

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

well Moses screwed the pooch yesterday at the combine.
ten yard split of 1.95. pro day will be huge for him. dropping like a stone i guess on boards. I thought he would have had a better showing. put the pads on and he proves he can play ball. back to earth for all the hype. RT 2/3 round.

Maylock called it. the one that may have solidified himself to a top 50 player is

Joel Bitonio OT/OG Nevada 6'4" 302
Arms 33 7/8
broad jump at 9 feet, 6 inches.
three-cone drill in 7.37 seconds
20-yard shuttle drill in 4.44 seconds.
40-yard dash 4.97 seconds.
10 yard splits of 1.68 and 1.74 seconds
bench press 22 reps

Could he be the one to sneaks into the first? always have a couple.

He fits in at RT/LT for zone blocking schemes and teams with a short QB?

Re: 2014 NFL Draft

I've a question, sort of outside the box. Instead of drafting BPA, or Need, what gain could be made from drafting according to draft depth?

I know it's a fruitless exercise because you can't ignore the salary cap but "what if" you decided to to a reload of a certain position?

Imagine dumping and completely reloading at WR, or dumping and reloading at RB.

What about drafting 3 WR/3 RB. What would or could our offense look like next year?

Not as outside the box as you may think...

There are several advantages to doing this...

It motivates your existing roster player and he'll either shine or fold (i.e. Ingram)...

Allows you to compare what you got side by side, in your "system"...

You can then geaux out and make a trade (i.e. Ivory) to address a need (i.e. Move to 34 Defense needing Behemoth NT > John Jenkins)...

But it's definitely a valid point...

See two guys on this list that we could easily take in the third and fourth rounds, if they are there...

Was watching film on one of the tight ends on this list, reviewed his combine measurements, I can even see taking him in the second round if we let Graham chase the big mo...

I would be drafting with the full intent of replacing this season. You would take some huge dead money hits on the cap but, id say you can sign 6 draft pics on 3.5m this year, dump at least 10m in aging veterans any gain a lot of youth.

I chose RB and WR specifically because I don't see 1 veteran player at either position that isn't questionable. As I see it, Stills and K Robinson would be the only two returning players in those positions.

We could pour any cap savings into the line or defense in FA.

If you play stupid games, you win stupid prizes.
