  • Players that you would punch a hole in the wall if we draft?

    I can't really think of any off the top of head......

    I guess Jimmy Smith if his off the field stuff is true. And Clayborn as his medical scares the hell out of me.


    Also Baldwin would be a luxury pick we can't afford

      • Would you guys be opposed with this draft?

        1. Derek Sherrod, OT, Miss St
        Unlike Solder, Sherrod has the strength and diversity to start out on the right side and eventually move over to the left. A little raw, but the potential is there.

        2. Ras-I Dowling, CB, Virginia
        Once the second or third CB on the board, a senior season marred by injury have really dropped his stock. He showed at the combine that he's healthy. When you go back and look at his junior tape, its amazing that he's not a first round lock.

        3. Chris Conte, FS, California
        One year wonder? Maybe, but he has the athleticism, protypical size and speed to really help out in the secondary. It'd actually be nice to draft a free safety with some sort of coverage ability. He's a very willing tackler and has youth on his side.

        4. John Moffitt, OG, Wisconsin
        Moffitt would be the perfect compliment to Pouncey on the inside, the type of pulling guard that our scheme can use. Would be a value pick here that fits a HUGE need.

        5. Julius Thomas, TE, Portland St
        Kind of a sleeper pick before the combine. This type of TE set would provide a matchup problem for any defense. Solid blocker and great pass catcher. This is not another Matt Spaeth.

        6. David Carter, DE, UCLA
        Prototypical LDE for our scheme. Shows the athleticism to latch on to blockers and create gaps. Would be a bit of a project, but so was Keisel and Harrison.

        7. Blaine Sumner, NT, Colorado School of Mines
        Sleeper, but this late in the draft I don't believe I'd let him test the UDFA road. He seems more of a weight-lifter than a football player right now. Another project, but his strength alone should warrant being drafted.

        I just completed an exhausting 7 round mock, and that's where I ended up at.

            Haven't watched enough of Sherrod can't really trash the pick

            I want to like Dowling but he just can't stay healthy if he falls to the 3rd or fourth i would give him a shot

            Colorado School of Mines, thats a new one

            • Too be honest...I've never heard of the place either, but the dude benched 49 at 225 and that's something. You could spend a second rounder of Paea and get more production early, or draft this guy and teach him a thing or two. We do have time. Hampton might be slowing down, but he's not done. We've been in the top 3 of NFL defenses the last 5 years. I guess we'll see how the draft works out. Here's his link on nfldraftscout.com:

                    • i dont think one year of injury is enough to label him injury prone...he plays tough through injuries and 2 years in a pro s&c program he will beef up his lower body, timmons was injury prone until he got bigger and more durable, i think that might be what dowling needs

                        • Phil Taylor is visiting today. I don't think Hughes would fit our scheme IIRC.

                              7) Frank Kearse NT Alabama A&M
                              I think a trade down would be idea, but not probable. I mean, when has Colbert traded up or down in the first round while Tomlin has been there? I'd like it this way.

                              2a) Ras-I Dowling, CB
                              2b) Marcus Cannon, OT/OG
                              3) John Moffit, OG
                              4a) Roc Carmichael, CB
                              4b) Deunta Williams, FS
                              5) Alex Hener, K - I think he'll go before the six round
                              6) Charlie Gantt, TE
                              7) Frank Kearse, NT

                                I like Roc, but the dude does not tackle nor is he explosive. I'd pass.
