Who will Saban pick from these options: Holmes, Jackson, Sims or Whitner?
I think Wimberly is also an option, but he will be gone before the #16 pick.
Sims may have the biggest potential as an impact player, but Holmes is probably the most likely to contribute next year.

Whitner and Holmes would be my guesses from those, but I can think of 2 guys not on that list that are just as likely (Cromartie and Allen).

With the 16th pick in the 2006 NFL draft the Miami Dolphins select Donte Whitner, S, Ohio State. Look guys, our safeties are pathetic and Whitner would be a guy that could step in and make a difference for us at FS or SS. I'm in favor of drafting 2 potential starting safeties in this draft, but we at least need to get 1 of em. I would love to go with one of those hybrid type players like Lawson or Wimbley, but we need safety help bad.

Again, I dont think our safeties are pathetic. But, I do think that you could add Jimmy Williams to the list of possibilities with our first pick. He and Donte Whitner would both make excellent choices. As would both WRs (Holmes and Jackson) or an OLB like Wimbley or Lawson.

if we move lawson to safety, then we should move jason taylor to safety, too. or we can draft vince young and put HIM at safety.

In all seriousness, Manny Lawson is freak (I mean that in the best way possible). He's 6'5 3/8", runs a 4.4, can play both Linebacker and Defensive End, and can block punts. It just comes down to what Saban believe is the bigger need at the moment: OLB or Safety. Right now, my two favorites for the 16th pick is Jason Allen and Manny Lawson.

i'm warming up to lawson a little. It would be awesome to have another edge passrusher in our D. Opposing qbs would have no idea where the blitz was coming from!

I'm still in favor of drafting cromartie though. Players of his caliber just aren't around at pick #16, I think he would be a steal. And we really could use another good cb. Worse comes to worse and everyone we have pans out at cb? We shift daniels to safety, problem solved.

Whitner wouldn't be bad, but 16 is too early IMO. I would love to have him though.

Never been sold on williams, and I still don't think we need to spend our first on a wr.

I still like greenway as an option. Ok, so he only benched 225 19 times, what a weakling! Have you guys seen him play? The guy has great instincts, is a sure tackler and is great in coverage. He may not rack up the sacks or be able to match up with the other team's burner, but the guy is one heck of a football player. Besides, if strength is his main problem, we have wieght rooms, nutritionists, strength trainers... it would be a lot easier than teaching him the game of football. After cromartie, greenway's my second choice.

I'd love to have Chad Jackson but with Denver at 15 I dunno if he'll fall, Jimmy Williams or Lawson, I don't understand why everyone is in love with Allen frot Tennessee, he's such a risk with that hip and the draft is DEEEEEP with safeties and corners why not go wit a safer healthy one???

Williams has some character issues- he acted like a idiot in some interviews and isn't real smart. Allen is coming off an injury. Whitner, though small(5'10"/190) is one of the best tacklers in Ohio State history. His ability to read the running plays and get to the RB is excellent.Whitner was a film room addict and has outstanding character.

it's not that he's not smart he's just one of the cockiest arrogant players in history, getting burnt in the preseason a few times'll teach him and he'll come back down to earth, or he'll back up his mouth and we'll have a Chad Johnson playn corner/safety for us

Impressive Monsters: Manny Lawson and Haloti Ngata

These two guys are freak athletes that can blow up plays at will. IMO if Ngata is still on the board at 16, he would be WAY TOO compelling to pass by. But most likely his all-world talent will be gone. Lawson seems much more likely, and though he may not be the absolute monster Ngata is, he looks like a 3-4 OLB terrorist for sure! Either way, both of these guys have really special athletic skills, the kind I hope we nail on the 1st pick.

Almost Monsters: Jimmy Williams and Ernie Simms

These two guys are close to being real monsters, and I would put Simms slightly ahead of Williams. IMO Simms will definitely be a very productive pro, and he looks ready right now. Athletically Williams may be a tad more impressive, but he has a few questions on the intangible side.

As far as WR’s in the draft --- I’ve seen highlights on most of the big names. IMO in comparison to what’s going to be available of the defensive side, I do not find the WR’s very compelling. Yea, they’re good solid prospects, but I don’t see a “monster” among them. So barring a trade down, I’m 95% sure we’ll go D on the 1st pick.

Here’s the dream: Ngata falls to us and we sign Arrington! That coupled with our other excellent moves already in the bank and this team will be WAY BETTER than last year!

I don't think so, I think it comes down to the best player available who Saban thinks will have the biggest impact in the NFL.....Regardless of position.
