We can move the ball up and down between the 20's with the best of them...

But we often struggled in 3rd and longs and in the red zone on particularly crucial conversions and it showed in the W-L column...



And this is why you grabbed the rarer talent; I'd have have a number of rotational, younger guys on defense; guys that will still be there in later rounds...

But since age has caught up with Colston and the Graham trade, we haven't had that defense killer that kept drives going or that jumpball red zone threat..
And to think we could have had Mathews, Philly got a reciever there If anything with Philly in a bad state I would seriously look at getting him by offering a pick .Colston 2.0

Do not get me wrong i would not scratch him off the board but I would research the heck out of the kid.

Two other high rated players i would really dig deep into are
Emmanuel Ogbah
Andrew Billings

I'd like Rashard Robinson on Day 3 or UDFA if Peterson doesn't convince the Cardinals to take him earlier.

A little off topic but do we stand a chance of getting any compensatory picks this year?

Unlikely as we signed as much as we lost...

It's about a double-secret committee that assigns values to free agents...

And then depending on your supposed net gain, loss, picks are assigned...

It doesn't matter, Ozzie Newsome and the Ravens will end up with most of 'em as they've got the wink-wink inside formula for those picks...

Personally, I'd like to see compensatory picks done away with and the draft bumped to nine full rounds...

I don't think I could hate a draft more than this.

Not one of our positions of need is addressed. From what I have seen there are no WRs worth taking in the first RD and we're already loaded there.

To each his own though. OG and TE being addressed is good.

Black, No. 1 receiver, Guard(s), Tight End are not needs?

Treadwell is the real deal and would be the perfect complement to Cooks who's too small to win the physical battles...

How can guard not be an issue for our offensive line?!?

And the Tight End had some big games against really good opponents, including Clemson...

FS Jairus Byrd has been a huge disappointment (at least for those who believed this would work) can't stay on the field to make plays...

SS Kenny Vaccaro for all his great physical talent and plays negates with bone-headed plays will be headed for free agency...

Hogan is my luxury pick, but I believe he's the goods and Brees doesn't have another three years, if two...

Ozzie? Now there's a guy we should trade all of our draft picks for.
