I really want us to trade down and stockpile picks... there are so many solid players in this draft sp on CB and IB/DE

for all that, just re-sign derek pope. they are the exact same player. 6' 235lbs. e miles is also a similiar type player. no point in wasting a draft pick on a player, when you have two twins already without losing a draft pick. and they are both young.

I did like what I saw. he seemed to read plays well, have great visions and angles on tackles, fast obviously.... one thing i worry about though is if the run comes right at him. bigger lineman getting to him....... i really would love him on passing downs and such though.... Safety???

to say that curtis lofton ed miles and derrick pope are the exact same player is ridiculous. size wise maybe but thats where it ends. lofton is pretty well regarded and depending on measurements and how he does at the combine he could very well see himself in top of the 2nd possibly at the bottom of the first.

im interested to see his strength metrics from the combine and if he can hold up in the middle. as for moving him to safety.......i dont think so.

safety could be a stretch, i was just thinking of possabilities, but this clip is all i really know of him. will be keeping an eye on him at the combine and anything future though.

Just to reply to myself on asking id Curtis Lofton can handle the run, handle shedding lineman attacking him up front. Look how he get his head and body on the propper side of this lineman, and just fires into him and destroys him as well as the play!!!:

I agree 100% I want him with the 32 pick unless some how D.Conner falls.Then take B.Albert with our late 2nd, that way we either sign a LT in FA and draft a D-lineman 1st overall or draft J.Long 1st and sign the best D-lineman available.Either way our O & D Lines are well on their way to being something special.

isnt 235 lbs light for a 3-4 lb..???? unless we play a 4-3 i dont see how we can use this guy... we need lbs near the 250 or above....

This guy would be a great addition to our 3-4 defense. He has incredible closing speed.

well he declared and he's the 3rd LB at best. He is not better than Rivers, and he is not better than Connor.

Lofton I really like, I'm a little hesitant on drafting him because he's on the small side. I don't see him as the next Pat Willis as Willis was pretty highly thought of since his sophomore year. Lofton did not become a legit first day guy until this year. I'd compare him more to Demeco Ryans
