Some have said we need someone opposite Jordan. If that's the case we need to jump on Lawson or Dodd. But we need DT as well, so which is deeper? What is in the third round between those two positions?

If the DT could get some pressure and push the pocket then I believe we have players on the outside who can apply pressure. DT is by far our biggest weakness.

ADD either A Robinson, Reed, Butler, Billings, Hargrave, Lawson and you have something special ... solid run stoppers and pass rushers galore. One of these guys will be there. Make offenses one dimensional.

JP - I know you want Treadwell @ pick #12 but I'd prefer a big, nasty, disruptive impact player on D. After watching Denver dominate in the trenches all season with Wolfe, Jackson & that mad man Von Miller coming off the edge .. we need to continue to stock pile young guns on D.

Grabbing a guard in the middle rounds would be a added bonus.

Re: Do we have the players to get after the QB?

Don't forget Davis Tull. His 1st step would embarrass Junior Galette, and he was a pretty good pass rusher.

I'd have no problem with Treadwell in the 1st if the premier pass rushers are gone. DT is very deep and Treadwell at 12 and a stud DT in the 2nd or 3rd works for me.

It reminds me of WR a couple of years ago. Jarvis Landry would be an upper to mid 1st rounder in this draft, and he went in the 2nd. We can probably grab a DT with a 1st round grade in the 2nd round, and one with a 2nd round grade in the 3rd round.

Its a great draft if you need some DT's.

Ahhh.. Landry. Alas, SP is allergic to LSU players. He cut Al Woods from LSU, one of our DT draft picks. He jut signed for another three years with another team.

Re: Do we have the players to get after the QB?

We should go ahead and draft either Shaq Lawson or The Rankins Kid from Louisville. If we want to win now, we need to run the 3-4, with Kikaha and Tull as the OLB's. Shaq Lawson is big enough to play the DE in the 3-4 and draft the Clark Kid from UCLA. He's big enough to man the Nose and gets a good enough push in pass rush spots. Plus we can also use Kevin Williams and Jenkins as backups to give the kid a rest every now and then.
