And we'd have to count on a stud dropping down in the 1st because otherwise, it's really hard to trade down. I don't know. We'll see.
      I think the only way we'd have a shot at trading down is if teams ahead of us skip out on other needs to take skill guys that we would want to draft, and a top OL (Oher maybe?) slips down to our spot. In that case I could see some team in the late first (more than a couple there could use a good tackle) try to leapfrog ahead of the Bears. Or perhaps if a good end slips, though I don't see as many late first teams needing one. Wells/Moreno are really the only other candidates I could see, or if some pure 4-3 guy that we won't have an interest in drops down to our spot.

I actually don't know how his coverage skills are, if someone could tell me that would be great because all year I've noticed how many times Harris got beaten in coverage.

        Also, based on his stock I'm not sure it would be good value to take him at 17.
        Hands down, Laurinaitis is the best coverage linebacker in this draft. There's no question about that. His instincts are phenomenal. I've seen him 20-30 yards down field with receivers. Great hands as well, so he can be counted on to make the interception. He'd actually be a very good fit next to Harris. I think though, the issue with him is that he's going to need some upper body strength. A lot of people say he's the most "finished" of all the linebackers, but I really don't think so. I think that he could be the safest pick out of them, but if he was able to add a considerable amount of upper body strength, you'd see a whole hell of a lot more solo tackles by him.

        • I honestly don't know who I want in the first round. I don't even know what position we should address. Arguments can be made for corner, safety, wide receiver, defensive end, running back, and even quarterback if someone falls to us. The only thing I do know is the only QB I want is Sanchez . I think he is a much better prospect than Leinart coming out and taking him would be ok with me.

          here's some random thoughts on who I want in the lower rounds.

          I love RB Andre Brown, and if we can get him in the third round I would be so pumped. He is very physical runner who did not get as many touches as he should have at North Carolina State, but I think he can be a very productive back after Jones is done with the Jets. I have watched a bunch of NC State games over the years, as I love the ACC (UNC is my favorite team), and I have always liked Brown's running style. He just has a toughness factor to him that would complement Leon perfectly.

          DT Ron Brace in the third or fourth, as he would hopefully be able to give Jenkins a break and I think would be an upgrade over Pouha. I hate Pouha I think he is the biggest P***y in the world. He has all the size in the world and I see him get driven downfield every time he is in. He is terrible and I want him gone or at least a replacement so he never has to touch the field.

          DE Jarron Gilbert, who is in the video above, is also an intriguing prospect. I don't know if we would invest in another OLB-DE rusher but he ha great physical tools. I saw a thread on him in the 2009 Draft Forum and he looks like the real deal.

          WR Brooks Foster in the fourth or fifth. I have followed UNC football for as long as I can remember and this kid has a great athleticism and is also very strong. He would be a developmental guy, as I don't think he could contribute right away, but if we can get him with our second 4th rounder I would be happy.

          Another from UNC who I like is WR Brandon Tate. He never did much as a receiver until his senior year when he exploded until a torn ACL ended his season. If he can come back 100%, then I would definitely take him in the fourth. He can stretch the field, has good hands, and is amazing after the catch. This is a guy who was a prolific return man and owns several NCAA return records. He just has a knack for big-plays and is someone to watch on draft day

          What other late round (and by that I mean past 1-2 rounds) prospects do you guys like?

            It's also a fairly deep draft overall, especially with OTs, so hopefully teams will go with Oline first and have someone we need fall to us.


            Additionally, Gholsten is like another first rounder this year, in that I am probably anticipating seeing him play more than anyone we draft.

            Lol same here I predicted Gholston last year and Revis the year before but this year we have a lot of choices and I wouldnt be upset with any of them. trading up is not a bad idea and we can go after a WR, LB, HB, S or CB and they all would make sense.

              The only UNC receiver I'd want is Nicks. Haha.

              But uh... I like Gilbert, I like Brown, and I like Rashad Jennings. I also like Quinn Johnson and Chip Vaughn, as well as Quan Cosby and Jaison Williams. Victor Butler, Jason Williams, Jarius Byrd, and Worrell Williams are interesting as well. If Mike Mickens or Shonn Greene dropped I'd have interest in them also.

                  I'm a big fan of Gilbert, Brown, Jennings, Vaughn, and Worrell Williams, and Quan Cosby intrigues me also. Gilbert, Brown, and especially Vaughn are probably my favorites of that group. I also think Roy Miller is an interesting mid-round potential NT although he's a little light but has good technique for it, DeMonte Boldin is interesting as an end in the later rounds, Tiquan Underwood and Mike Wallace at WR, and I wouldn't mind a punter either to solidify the position.

                  • to me ramses barden is an interesting prospect to bring in late in the draft...i dont konw much about him, but we still dont have a real great red zone reciever, im hoping keller can be that, but bardens got thr size and leaping ability to be a trheat there...dont get me wrong, hes not the gamebreaking recieer we need, but hes a guy that we could use just as a red zone or short yardagge guy late in the draft

                      I like some of the DL you talked about, but I don't know about the WRs. Neither of those guys are particularly big and we already have Stuckey and Clowney.

                        Well Underwood isn't exactly bulky but he is around 6'2, quite fast and he's very good after the catch. Wallace is probably a little too similar to Clowney to make sense but I still think we desperately need speed at the position. Height would be nice too, I guess. Forgot to mention Ramses Barden if the value's right, I'm not nearly sold on him but he really intrigues me. More wideouts I had forgotten but really think are interesting that bring height into play are Robiskie, Demetrius Byrd, Marko Mitchell, and Darius Passmore. Big fan of Dillard as well though I'm not so sure he brings height or speed to the offense, but I think he'll find success at the next level also.

                        • As much as I would love to have a Rutgers guy, a guy like Underwood is no what we need. We have 3-4 guys that could potentially be good slot guys and that is exactly what Underwood is. I am of the belief that if we take a WR it should either be a blue chipper or not at all. We have a few guys that show potential, what we need is a straight up Number 1 with size/speed/yac/jump ball ability/etc. I know its tough to find, but we can't be like the Titans and keep trying to take guys late hoping they become a top flight guy down the road.

                          • I agree that what we need in our WR core is a top-flight guy. I'm not exactly saying I'd be a proponent of drafting a guy in the mid-rounds, but if we do those are the guys I'd be interested in looking at.

                            • Yea take a WR 1st or 2nd round if not then we shouldnt draft 1 at all. But if we dont trade up in the 1st or 2nd we wont get anyone that will be a good #1 or 2 in the nfl. Maclin and Crabtree will be gone by 17 and by our 2nd choice DHB should be gone

                                I think the guys that have the potential to be a #1 are
                                Crabtree
                                DHB
                                Maclin
                                Britt

                                Obviously Crabtree is gone and we aren't gonna trade up nor would I want to. DHB worries me because his production isn't nearly as good as his athleticism which worries me. Maclin has the production and definitely has speed. However, he is only a red shirt sophomore which may mean he will need longer to be productive and he always looked a bit frail to me. As for Britt, my concerns are that he is from Rutgers and I am blinded by all the amazing things he did for the school. However, seeing him on a regular basis makes me believe that he could be a #1. He obviously has the size, he has shown the speed and YAC and he has shown toughness on jumpballs. Granted he did it in a less than stellar conference, but he showed that he has all the tools necessary.
