I dunno what makes you think Carroll hypes his guys up any more than any other coach. He sure didn't hype up Matt Sanchez for the scouts.
With how shallow this draft is in the secondary and how deep it is at OL... I think we have to go secondary... especially when we have starting positions to fill there. A lot too. I think we need a starting CB and 2 new starting safeties. I think we should look to FA to help us out some, but this draft is pretty shallow with DBs. NTs are shallow too, but what 3-4 teams really draft NTs in Round 1? I dunno about that. If FA doesn't help us out at all (Hampton, Wilfork), then maybe Terence Cody or Dan Williams makes some sense. With Round 2 looking to have good talent at CB, I think Safety or LT makes the most sense value wise for our 1st rounder. ...when you consider Doug Free... Jerry might write off LT being a first round need altogether.
