View Full Version : Who to take in rd 1 of draft?

I have been perusing the web and checking out mock drafts. Most of them show us taking Riley Reiff, OT from Iowa...YAWN...Another OL? Could we find one in free agency? I doubt that Blackmon will fall to us (I do hope though). What do you think of Alshon Jeffrey, WR South Carolina? Or do we look to pair up Wake with another pass rush specialist in the form of Zach Brown, OLB North Carolina or Courtney Upshaw, OLB Alabama.. Thoughts?

My vote is for pass rusher, we could really use an Aldon Smith or Von Miller to help Wake out

I'm torn between Courtney Upshaw and Michael Floyd. Upshaw is an obvious need, a very good player who would complement Cam Wake nicely. Just not sure if he can become an elite pass rusher. I think Floyd will be a #1 receiver and make it very difficult for teams to take Marshall away, especially in the redzone. That would be one heck of a combination and protect Miami in case something happens off the field with Marshall.

Best player available.

If we take any O-lineman in the draft it should be DeCastro but I'm completely against an O-lineman or D-lineman at 8/9 in the draft. I really didn't pay attention to John Jerry in the Jets game while he was playing LT, I was enjoying the game to much to look at individual performances...destroying the Jets hopes of the playoffs was something to savor at the time. I think he played well though, I don't remember much pressure from that side. You would think he would be at least an upgrade over Colombo on the right side.

As for the pick...not onboard with Jeffrey at our pick, Upshaw would be nice provided we stay in the 3-4, Kuechly would be real nice if we move to the 4-3 as well as Coples...I'm still undecided on him if he can play OLB in the 3-4. Obviously if any of the "super freaks" like Blackmon, Richardson, Claiborne drop to you then you run the card up there as fast as possible.

Best player available.


Another offensive lineman may be boring, but if the guy is the best player available (a reasonable bet at this point) then you draft that player imo. Add on the fact that right tackle might be our weakest position and it's hard to argue against it.
