Levi Brown. Not because it's not a sexy pick...I just don't think he's worth the 9th pick. Joe Thomas I would be happy with, so it's not a matter of not wanting O-Line. I just don't think Levi is worth anything higher than 20.

I'd be extremely happy with almost anyone else that has even been mentioned as possibly going to us.

The only 2 people I would really be upset to see us draft, at least in the #9 spot, is Amobi Okoye and Ted Ginn Jr.

I don't want Levi Brown. He looks like more of a right tackle than a left and I feel like if you're really going to build up your o-line in the top 10 then you need to do it with elite talent.

I just don't know...... I guess we have to get the best player available at the time of pick!!!!

why does he look more like a RT when he has been playing LT for four years? None of you people ever explain yourselves. I think the RT excuse could be used for Staley as well. The guy gets blown back every time. Wade Smith here we come!

I wouldnt mind getting Ginn if we traded down as opposed to Staley because at least Ginn gives us explosion at another position. Staley will not start. He will sit behind alabi and be told to learn while he puts on weight and strength for a year.

I totallly agree on Levi Brown. He's got the talent but I've seen several games and he just doesn't have that killer instinct. He'll never be above average I don't think. But the average Leonard Davis seems to be coveted by the Cowboys, seeing how big his contract his. So who knows.

There are ALOT of guys on NFL network and ESPN that do this for a living, including former OLinemen, that say Brown will be a very good LT, including some that like him more that J. Thomas. I think I will take their opinion with more weight than most others. I like Brown, and hope we get him, although I dont think he will be their at 9. I think ATL. will get him at 8.

Ridiculous. Miami selected Webb in the first round and he went to multiple pro bowls, and led our offensive line .. ..

Marino's career would have likely been cut short by a few years without that pick .

Absolutely, just giving my opinion. There were a lot of guys that liked Ryan Leaf too.

Levi Brown would probably be better than anything we have on the line.. And O-line is our biggest need .. By far .

I'm sorry, I just have a hard time believing that anybody knows anything more than anyone else when it comes to the draft. Yeah Kiper, McShay and others may be able to tell you Joe Thomas' height, weight, arm length and mother's maiden name, but nobody could guarantee where he will be picked and whether he will be the perennial all-pro everyone is making him out to be. It seems like he'll be a cornerstone at LT for whoever drafts him, but the same was said about Robert Gallery. With so may colossal busts of so called "can't miss prospects," I just find it hard to believe that anyone can truly consider themselves a draft "expert."

Well alot of people would disagree with you when it comes to Levi. He can play both tackles and we need a good Left Tackle. He really opens holes for the RB's which Cameron loves in lineman.

I would be pissed! if MIA selected Okoye! Please NO!

Last year I was waiting for Chad Jackson or Santonio Holmes when all of a sudden...MIA selects, Jason Allen!

I was like WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! But I sucked it up...

Please don't do it to me again! Cameron? Mueller? Make sure it's an OFFENSIVE PLAYER.

Only Tedd Ginn Jr, Levi Brown, or Brady Quinn would I allow. Any other name would piss me off!!!!!!!!!

Anyone else notice that not too many white LT's make it to be franchise LT's? Am I missing something here? :err:

I see us making a move to get up and make sure we get Quinn. Just be prepared for what or who it may cost us.

I haven't seen Levi play but he supposedly excels at run blocking. Staley is a good pass blocker but lacks burst for the running game. Both prospects are rated lower first round by Randy Cross. Levi's times were slow at the combine, he hasn't tried to pass-block NFL speed rushers so he does not thrill me at #9. It is a fact, however, that of all positions taken in round#1, O-line has the most success. I look at Marcus McNeil and have to think we can find a solid OL later in the day(s) and use Houck to coach them up.

No one has the gifts that Ginn has so we should take him (as low as possible).

Levi Brown will be the pick unless the Falcons take him or Brady Quinn is still on the board ( VERY UNLIKELY )
