If Jake long from Michigan, if he comes out which i assume he may, i think would be a solid choice for the O - line. im Sick of ignoring this O line, 3 years ago we got VC and he is actually playing well so why not get a dominating LT who is versatile to play both tackle spots.

Be a little optimistic,there are no need for these threads, until we lose.Im sorry but with the Ronnie injury and the tough match up next week im not in the best of moods.All im saying is wait to we are out of it cause right not we are two out of the wild card.Even the announcers were saying yesterday how now the needed to talk about us and the wildcard.So no giving hope yet.

Unless we can draft a Stud LT or Center then I dont see need for it.

The offensive lines improvement has been one of the main factors of us winning, and they have played very well recently

i never said that i wasnt optimistic, i cant make small talk about players and the draft dude, i dont care if your in a good mood or not, sammie morris will fill in fine, boo hoo, ronnie will be back sooner than people think, so ANYWAY, Jake Long is a great pick

it's ok to talk about the draft because no matter how we finish, we will have a 1st round pick.

A beast DE would be a better pick because from what i can see the O-line has found out wats working & will get a great test next week aginst JAX.

A DE would probally sit on the bench for us next year.

Roth is really coming around and Taylor seems to still have a couple really good years left.

If anything Id like to see us draft (In no real order)

1) A huge DT/NT to replace Traylor when he retires
2) A true shutdown corner
3) A big fast OLB
4) A Big play WR

Whoever is the best player on the board out of the four positions of offensive tackle, linebacker, wide receiver, and safety. I guess a slight bias could be placed on tackle and linebacker since we will probably be looking for talent which could possibly start on game one.

Jake Long would be a very good pick, but I think he already stated that he is most likely staying for another year at Michigan.

I'd take Gaine Adams if I was GM. (But of course, that is just me).

LaMarr Woodley = Shawne Merriman. Perfect replacement for the invisible linebacker, Spragan. Sometimes, it feels as if we have one less player in our defense.

I think our biggest need is still QB-Pepper is done, and Harrington I see as a more accurate/less mobile Fiedler. A caretaker, good, not great. Might win a game for you, probably wont lose it, wont take it over.
However the QBs in this draft are difficult to assess. We likely are way out of range of Quinn, Brohm may not come out, Stanton is talented but likely a project, and Smith is just intriguing.
Id say if he comes out, Brohm could be around where we are picking. And unless a top end LT drops to us we will be picking defense, likely someone like Adams or Woodley.

OLB is the top priority, then LT, and a speed WR/RS who can relieve Welker of return duties so he can focus more on receiving. Wes takes too many big hits (which occasionally results in fumbles, esp. in returns) in a game and a return specialist with receiving skills would be a great asset.

I very seriously doubt we'll draft a safety in the first 3 rounds. Jerimiah Bell has really come around, and Jason Allen will be expected to produce next year.

I'd say: OT LB DT or CB depending upon best available of those 4. QB could also be an intriguing option depending upon who is available in the first three rounds. I would think we should be able to get pretty good players at three of those positions in the first three rounds...

LB is easily in my eyes the biggest need in this draft maybe 2 of them. . . followed by LT (I like Dmac, but would be nice to have a potential stud at the position to compliment Carey on the right side, Dmac would start again next year and the rook would take over in year 2 or maybe even a bit later if Dmac plays well).

WR is a questionable need, I mean I am worried about the Hagan drops, but I think he will be fine. But even if he is, its looking like Booker may not be back . . . so Chambers, Hagan, Welker . . . and hopefully Vick or Gibson steps up . . but I guess a WR is possible in the draft.

If a potential "shut down CB" is available . . that is an option, but I think we are good w/ our young CB's.

DLine is interesting . . . we are stacked with youth, but definetly could probably use a big time End to eventually replace JT . . Roth looks like a player to start on the other side.

Possibly Kicker . . . but only second day.

ESPN's site says he's a Junior, but the Michigan site says he's a Senior. Which one is wrong?

ESPN's site says he's a Junior, but the Michigan site says he's a Senior. Which one is wrong?he is a redshirt junior so I guess both are right depending on how you look at it.

That would be great! but I think we need a WR with alot of speed, a homerun hitter. Other needs are LB and OL.

i might get shot for saying this....but if u ask me, we need to pick up a CB with our 1st pick. i think we are fine at safety, we have lots of d-linemen, and i think we will go for an OLB in the FA's...we need a shutdown corner, despite having Allen/Daniels/Goodman, possible Poole on the roster...none of them are shutdown types.

if our O-line stays consistent, we dont need to draft one in the 1st round...RBs are fine, QBs are fine, TE's are fine, u dont draft a fullback with the 1st pick, and WR's......well Calvin and Ginn will be gone by the time we pick.

so id choose a CB......anyone else agree??

I think we could use a top-notch Center...we could probably get Doug Datish of Ohio State in the 2nd round.

we need a olb willis from ole miss is great and buster davis will be a good player, but he is more of a ilb can the guy from michagan play olb? he looks like a stud, what about jarrett wr from usc?

LouPhinFan

I really don't see us pick a player for our secondary in the first round. I'm willing to bet it will be either OL or LB in the first round depending on where we are picking and who's available. We need a pass rushing LB and a young MLB. Another first day pick will be spent on a DT, hopefully on Okoye from Louisville. 6'2" 317 lbs and he's only a 19 year old senior. He's still developing physically and will become a monster on the DL.

Who knows if Manny Wright will ever wear a Dolphin uniform again and it sounds like they are trying Rod Wright at DE instead of DT. Since Saban almost moved up in last year's draft to get Haloti Ngata, he'll make sure he gets a good DT this year.

Sorry, but QB and WR are not "need" positions for us. QB will not be a need until Saban finds out if Daunte can play or not, so 2008 maybe a year to draft one. Hagan will be fine, I think he will be solid for us. If there is a good WR available on day 2, then we can take a look. I think we will probably add a CB at some point in the draft along with taking a run at an available CB in free agency.

So basically here's the break down:

1st day:
OT
LB
DT

2nd day:
CB
WR
LB

if a WR is the BPA, then that would be cool but when it comes to needs WR does not come close to LB and OL

also Chambers is our speed receiver for now, he does not go over the middle nor does he seem inclined to come back and battle for the ball

so if we took a WR in the first round, I would prefer a big guy like Jarrett, a guy to move the chains

I'm not a Michigan fan but if we pick up any of there big four. This would be my order of choosing them.
DT Alan Branch -would be awesome. Huge guy that could be our NT for years
OLB\DE Lamar Woodley -Athletic freak who can play in space and rush the passer, we need a better impact SLB, here he is.
OT-Jake Long - Monster Tackle, great size and would fill a need.
CB-Leon Hall - I think we have a pretty good secondary considering our three best safeties will be back if we sign Bell. Having Bell, Allen, and Hill in here for a second year together would be great plus we will have our three best CBs back for a second year with Allen, Daniels, and Goodman. That is a great 6 players to have back and comfortable with the system. So a CB is not that big of a need in my mind.

If Jarrett falls to us down between 12-16, he would be hard to pass up, if Branch and Woodley are both gone.
Gaines Adams would a be a stud as well.
Lets hope the win streak keeps going and we make the playoffs.

So basically here's the break down:

1st day:
OT
LB
DT

2nd day:
CB
WR
LB

I agree with that order - for now. We must wait and see what happens in FA. I don't think we get OL help in FA, but perhaps the LB depth we are looking for. I don't see any major splash in FA, but as always expect some moderate turnover (though less than the last 2 years). This year it will be important to let the draft come to us. The past two years we could "target" certain players/positions with a reasonable certainty that they would fall to us, I don't think so this year. As always, I'll be wathcing the entire 2 day draft and have fun doing it. I hope we have some needs filled via FA and sure up some spots so that we are not forced into any dire "need" picks. The Hagan pick last year, the Rod Wright pick show me that Nick & Co. understand that the drafting process works best with a long term plan in place rather than the quick fix.

1st round - BPA of OT's, LB's, NT's, LB's, WR's

2nd and 3rd - C, OT, LB, NT, G

Day 2 - K, LB, C-G, big possession WR

as you might guess I think we are thin at LB

LaMarr is more like 275. His weight is an issue for him. He is pretty slow in running almost a 4.8/40. He has to work on that before the combine....
