    Next years draft?

    Anybody have a wishlist? I'm gonna be honest and assume we have a top 16 pick, most likely around this years pick, maybe even a little better. Here are some scenario's.

    Top 5 pick - I hope not but it's possible.
    Darren McFadden - absolute beast who would dominate in our system.
    Jake Long - Extremely well balanced T, but I don't know if he can play LT in the pro's. He's incredibly anyways.
    Sam Baker - Finally a stud LT. USC Junior is what we wanted Tony Boselli to be.
    Callais Campbell - Yes I know, that's 5 straight years Dline in the 1st. But imagine it. Campbell - Okoye - Weaver - Williams.
    Kenny Phillips - One of my favorite players in the draft regardless of position, an absolute beast in every facet of the game. Plus we need a cover safety badly.


    5-15 range.
    Paul Oliver - I'm hoping Bennett can become a starter, but if not, Oliver is a beast.
    DeSean Jackson - Big time playmaker who we need across Johnson.
    Antoine Cason - See Oliver.
    Glenn Dorsey - same as Campbell.
    Glenn Dorsey - see Campbell.

    In my perfect world, we would trade up into the draft and nab the playmaker we need at halfback in Darren McFadden. However that won't happen. I think that right now we can be competitive for another year with our halfback situation so I think that we should go secondary. However with the lack of great first round playmakers I think we might be best suited taking another pass rusher or possibly outside linebacker. I feel like our offensive line significantly got better this year simply because our quarterbacks get rid of the ball. I think if we can't get a huge playmaker on offense we need to help solidify our defense. I think we are one great safety away from that. But another pass rusher and/or OLB we could become one of the best defenses in the league within the next year or 2.

    My Big Board:
    1) Reshard Mendenhall
    2) Kenny Phillips
    3) Ryan Clady or any other OT

    I am now too. After yesterday, he was about the only bright spot Illinois had against a great USC defense. In a perfect draft we would some how trade back in the first round after we get Mendenhall and get Clady. It wont happen since we dont have enough fire power to get back in but I will keep dreaming.

    I dont think he is. We need a RB but unless we lose out we "might" have a chance at DMac. We dont have the picks to trade up either. The last few games I havent been convinced on Jonathan Stewart. He hasnt had great games without Dennis Dixon in there.

    1st RD. Steve Slaton - RB West Virginia

    Do you really see Steve Slaton as a every down back

    2. DB- Kenny Phillips, Reggie Smith
    3. WR- Desean Jackson, Malcolm Kelly
    4. OT- Jake Long, Sam Baker
    5. DE- Calais Campbell, Tommy Blake, Quentin Jones, Chris Long


    I don't think we need to go o-line this year like we have needed to every other year. The line has seemed to come together rather nicely and it is allowing Schaub time to throw the ball. Carr just had a problem with holding onto the ball too long. I think what we need major help at safety, but with not much available there if we don't get Phillips I think we need to add another playmaker on offense. Andre Johnson proved this week that he is not always going to be open and we need someone to help keep double teams away from him, whether that be with another WR or by adding a legit running threat. We are scaring nobody with our ground game.

    Honestly, it doesnt matter who we pick because anyone would help this team out. Right now I am kind of liking the idea of trading down, maybe getting a 2nd rounder back, and getting Vernon Gholston. I know, another DL but this kid seems special. A DL of Mario, Okoye, and Gholston would be awesome. If Kenny Phillips is around he might be too good to pass up though.....For the record, its Jonathan Stewart and not "James."

    I still think we need a Tackle. Mayber A. Boone, K.Barton, or maybe Tony Hills later on in the draft.

    I'm loving the trade down scenerio myself. If we are picking in the 10-15 range, why not trade with someone like Dallas who has that second 1st rounder from Cleveland I believe it is..and maybe get a second if we swap 4th's or somehting to equal the value? Would we even need to obtain that 2nd rounder? I'm really digging Mendenhall and Rice right now, so a move down to the 20-25 area would be fine by me. As long one of those can be had. With our newly acquired 2nd, we could take a look at Chris Williams at LT. I'd also like a C somewheres in the 3rd-5th round range to groom behind McKinney. I like D. Rodgers-Cromartie in the 4th too, he'd help patch up that secondary of ours.
