Any players Scott picked below us that appealed? Bulaga stuck out for me, potential LT if Big mack is ever hurt, and Pro Bowl type RT to replace Clarey.
Actually all of the next 4 picks seem more likely than Benn: Dwyer, Wooten (unless they think Vaughn Martin is a future 5 technique), Bulaga, or Cody.
Does anyone think Cody may be too tall for NT? He may not be able to get the leverage he would need to dominate in the NFL.
WR is not a great pick IMO. even if we did lose Floyd. If we lose Jackson, I won't find out who we pick because I will have flung myself over a bridge.
Spiller is the only running back in this draft I'd really want to pick in round 1. Bulaga I am just not sold on at all as a premiere player worthy of a 1st round pick.
Cody? I would love. Play him 2 downs, and rotate him with Jamal next year. That's like 800 pounds of man stopping the run that we don't have right now.
In an ideal world Spiller, McClain, Cody, or Spikes would be picks I'd really like. If we end up picking late in the round, Trent Williams as a RT would be fun. But not wideout. It's fun to think about Benn, Jackson, and Gates but frankly this team has much bigger needs in the trenches right now, and faces the very real possibility of Sproles and LT being on different teams in 2010.
