    But i dont see that happening in the first round.. Also, I wonder if the Wilk thing true, or a smoke screen. Also, if it is true, than I wonder who they have in mind. I read somewhere Jarrett was brought in for a workout, so get ready for anything come draft day.

      No he isn't a first rounder. But with him seeming to be a commodity because he is one of a kind in this draft, he might go earlier than he should. I think as of right now he will be going somewhere in the early to mid 3rd round. If he is there when our pick in round 3 comes around I would grab him if we haven't picked up a LB yet. If the Giants truly covet him, they might have to pull the trigger in the second.

        jug do you think the cb talent is good enough to draft in the 1st? i think we cant get the same thing in the 2nd round. maybe we should trade into the later 1st and take the best LB that falls to us and acquire some picks. then take a DB in round 2. what do you think?

          Unless we make some mid level free agent signings before the draft (some good DTs still out there), I would like to aquire more picks as well. You have to see how the draft falls though during the day.

            If Beason isn't a good blitzer, and has durability concerns like the scout report says, then I doubt we get him. Those are 2 red flags. Spags will blitz alot, and Reese is shying away from injury prone guys I believe.

            Right now, I think my favorite OLB is Willis. Followed by Poz/Timmons. I haven't made an official ranking of my own of those 3 yet.

              Well, I think a lot of people feel the same about Patrick Willis, I just think we don't have any chance to get him with so many teams that could use a good inside or outside linebacker before us.

              I agree, if Beason isn't a great blitzer, it would be a waste to get him with a blitz heavy defense. I love Posluszny for that reason, but I also don't mind if we go for Tim Shaw in a later round or get Timmons as he is a great blitzer also.

                Tim Shaw is a sleeper.

                  There are a lot of varying opinions on Willis, and as we get closer to draft day i think he may be gone as well but if he isnt i think he needs to be the pick. Some "experts" still have him falling to the late 1st but i want him with our pick
