    Yeah, very good point. I still see RB as a need. That is until Blount, and Huggins prove they can play in the NFL.

      etk, I watched Nate Irving vs VT and was really impressed. Where is he projected to go?

      Just for fun, here are the teams I think we will be drafting behind (in no order):
      Oakland (New England), Kansas City, Cleveland, Buffalo, Jacksonville, St. Louis, Arizona, Detroit, Washington/NYG, Carolina.

      So that puts us around the 11th pick. Clayborn is likely out of reach. Mark Ingram would be perfect here but what if Blount looks good? How bout Deandre McDaniel?

      Oh and here is my top 5 overall so far:
      1. CB Patrick Peterson LSU
      2. DE/DT Marcell Dareus BAMA
      3. DE Adrian Clayborn IOWA
      4. DE Robert Quinn UNC
      5. WR AJ Green GEORGIA

      Im not wild about the 3 QBs like most people are.
      From what I have seen this draft seems to be pretty deep at Safety, or more there will probably be a good one available in the first 4 rounds. The class seems decent enough with DE's also. I think it's Quinn and Clayborn in the first if not BPA with need somewhat in mind. If we are picking around 10 and the two DE's are gone I would much rather go with Greg Jones or Hightower to replace Ruud and grab Beal, Bowers, Romeus, Kerrigan or Acho in the 2nd, whoever falls... Or even take Carimi in the first round and grab your DE in the 2nd and a Safety in the 3rd or 4th rounds.

        Hightower has been looking like an overweight bum this season. I doubt he even declares. I don't know if it's because he still injured, but he just hasn't been playing as advertised this season.

          I honestly don't know about Irving. He was underrated as a Soph and the injuries took him completely off the radar. He's a late 1st round talent imo but there's no way he goes that high unless he tears up the combine.

          Peterson is obviously a stud. Dareus is a great 3-4 DE as he's extremely strong but he's not the pass rushing RDE we need. Neither is Clayborn. Quinn is ideal but in a perfect world we get Olivier Vernon next year. Of the DEs I've seen this year that are draft eligible, the only ones that I'd even think of taking are Steven Friday, Jabaal Sheard and Justin Houston. Not a good class for pass rushing DEs.

          I want a back that's explosive, hits the hole hard and can be used as a receiver out of the backfield. Huggins looks the part but he never gets any burn so I can't really tell. I love Ingram but I'd rather not have to spend a 1st on a RB. I'd rather build the team around Freeman and the defense.

          McDaniel is a no-go. He's not a 1st round caliber talent imo and is Piscitelli-like in coverage with boneheaded miscues. Again I don't wanna sound like a homer but I'd love to get Vaughn Telemaque at some point. He's a rSo so who knows when he declares. I also like Deunta Williams, Ahmad Black, Tyler Sash. Again....the guys I like most (Janzen Jackson, Devonte Holloman) aren't eligible yet.

          All I know is Ruud needs to be replaced. It's getting painful to watch.

          That and we need a new punter. I'd overdraft Chas Henry if that's what it takes.

                Even if we get rid og Caddy, we should keep Earnest Graham. That's his second game in a row with a play of 50+ yards. He's not a blocking FB, but he sure is a playmaker.

                  I think we should continue what we started last season and go for a double dose of help on the DL. Assuming we draft in the teens, grab DE Allen Bailey of Miami to come in and be our LDE, then in round 2 get the 2nd coming of Dwight Freeney in Nevada DE Dontay Moch to be our RDE.

                  We have RBs to like on our roster, Blount and Huggins. Carnell will be gone, that much is certain.. but we can find good RBs in rounds 3-7. I'd like to see us add a burner at WR to keep defenses honest and force them to play more than zero coverage like they've done so often this season.

                  I think our future MLB is Quincy Black who will be replaced by Watson at Sam. Safety has to be a consideration somewhere in the draft though the Bucs have had great success turning college CBs into FSs.... Damien Robinson, Dexter Jackson, Dwight Smith, and Tanard Jackson all played CB in college (all except Jackson played almost exclusively at CB). That being said, perhaps round 3-7 we grab a big CB and move him to FS. All aforementioned players were drafted in round 3 or later.

                    I dont see Bailey as a 4-3 DE at all. I would put him at 4-3 UT if I was running a team. And I dont think we should give up Kyle Moore at LDE just yet.

                    We've got a ton of needs on both sides so BPA is really the way to go and who knows where we are going to pick. I think we're going to finish the season better than 5-7 in the last 12 games so that puts us at better than 8-8... looks like we could be picking around the 20th pick so a lot of our favorites will be gone.

                      Allen Bailey is a 3-4 DE. Assuming we don't win more than 7 games, I say we go after Adrian Clayborn. Dude is a beast and can play 4-3. He can get to the QB and is excellent in the run game. Guy can play both LDE and RDE in our system, which can cause confusing for offenses.

                      Also, keep an eye on Robert Quinn. He was just ruled ineligible for the rest of the year and might slip in the mid- 1st round.

                        If we're picking low and no elite DE's are on the board, I'd pick Rahim Moore. Dude is a playmaker and is Ed Reed 2.0 Either him, Gabe Carimi or Brandon Harris.

                        Honestly, I think we should look in FA. Mathias Kiwanuka is a FA and I don't see the Giants keeping all 4 of their DE's.

                          Yea Bailey is a 3-4 DE, there are a lot of tweener type guys at DE this year.
                          Beal has been really impressive this year and Bowers has played well as far as the type of DE I think fits our team. Romeus will probably drop to the second round with the injury. I am sure there are some smaller school guys to that will rise up the closer we get to the end of the season.
                          Kyle Moore shouldn't be starting, right now he's a rotational type guy and hopefully I am wrong but I don't see him ever being starter material.

                          After the Bengals game it is just more proof we need multiple upgrades to both the DE spot and Oline. Then throw in a Strong Safety and MLB. Hopefully we can add some exp FA's at some of these spots because I think we will be ready for the playoffs next year if we can upgrade a few key positions.

                            Sounds like we drafted a guy this year that fits that mold, Myron Lewis.
                            Thats what a lot of people projected him to be in the NFL.
                            Probably a stretch tho, Grimm bounced back so maybe he pans out and TJax still has a year left on his contract so...

                              Wait...why the **** are we talking about replacing Kyle Moore already? Moore is active and fits the prototype for our LDE. Stylez White isn't getting any pressure and is our worst run defender. We need a RDE...a really good one in fact. It's probably the most important position on the defense.

                                Kyle Moore through the first four games has been pretty crappy.. I don't think he is starting material. Right now Crowder is our best pass rushing DE and has more upside then Moore imo.. Moore hasn't even played a full season though so... Hopefully he proves me wrong..
