Obviously, you haven't watched any Ole Miss games this season.

Treadwell is projected to be a top 10 selection on draft day.

Treadwell is the only WR I want in the first round at this point. If he's off the board then I'm looking at DT's like Andrew Billings, A'Shawn Robinson, Adolphus Washington... It's a pretty good year for DT's.

Yes sir, all very good selections. I think the 2016 class is deep in talent.

Re: So who do we draft?

We have one other issue though that I haven't seen much talk about. That issue being weak side LB. Ellerbe hasn't been healthy for two years now going back to his time at Miami. If Ellerbe can't bounce back then we could also look for that stud weak side LB in the first round. Maybe Myles Jack or Leonard Floyd?

Re: So who do we draft?

If we end up with the number one pick in the draft, do we pick up a qb or trade down? That will certainly be the question.

Re: So who do we draft?

Let us look at the state of affairs first off

1. Tennessee Titans: 2-9 (.514 SOS)
2. Cleveland Browns: 2-8 (.511 strength of schedule)
3. Baltimore Ravens: 3-7 (.500 SOS)
4. Dallas Cowboys: 3-8 (.523 SOS)
5. San Diego Chargers: 3-8 (.529 SOS)
6. San Francisco 49ers: 3-8 (.534 SOS)
7. Miami Dolphins: 4-7 (.474 SOS)
8. Jacksonville Jaguars: 4-7 (.486 SOS)
9. Philadelphia Eagles: 4-7 (.511 SOS)
10. St. Louis Rams: 4-7 (.517 SOS)
11. New Orleans Saints: 4-7 (.523 SOS)
12. Detroit Lions: 4-7 (.528 SOS)
12. Detroit Lions: 4-7 (.528 SOS)

How bad of a melt down do you really think this will be?

we have these teams left to play

panthers
bucs
Lions
Jags
falcons

Kiss the top 4 prospect good bye IMO. So here is my short dream list and Each one fills a need

Jalen Ramsey, CB, Florida State, 6005, 202, 4.49
Jaylon Smith OLB Noter Dame 6025 240 4.67
Ronnie Stanley, OT, Notre Dame 6055 315 5.17
Conner Cook QB Michigan St. 6042 220 4.89

I am not completely sold on are
Robert Nkemdiche
Vernon Hargreaves III
Laquon Treadwell

After that it is drafting as usual. Good thing this year there does not appear to be a huge drop of till about the middle of the second so the saints should walk away with two starters easy

but i still have these players as pipe dreams for the saints. The bandwagon is not on fire

Re: So who do we draft?

I want Sebastian Johansson from Marshall in the later rounds, and yes, I am a Sweden homer!

HERDZONE.COM :: Official Athletic Site of Marshall Thundering Herd :: Football

This you tube clip shows a pretty special game. First time two Swedes faced each other in a FBS game. The LT for Purdue #75 is Swedish and so is Johansson #71 the LG for Marshall.

Re: So who do we draft?

-- trade the pick for an affordable, solid offensive linemen + a lower pick.

-- trade the next pick for the best available free agent defensive lineman or Linebacker + a lower pick. I dont care which-- but whoever is the best pure football player.

-- trade the next pick for a proven possession receiver + a lower pick.

-- use the remaining picks on LSU players & guys with either phenomenal
stats, or guys who were beasts in college at any position. --these are the picks you can take a chance on, with someone who is a question mark, without mortgaging the future.

Lets be good at something.

The people in charge of scouting talent couldn't/wouldn't pick the right people if they held every pick in the draft.
