    Assumption: lots of high draft picks equals improved roster

    Fact of the matter that is not the case

    Jeff Ireland has had years to build a roster and we haven't done squat

    If you think all those picks are going to be impact players your crazy

    This team needs to go BPA every pick . . . no such needs in this draft when you got this many issues. WR, CB, TE, pass rusher, OG, OT, FS . .. take the best man every round and build up the overall talent.

    Robert Woods, should be the obvious move for us in the first round. He's slated to be available from 15-25. Those who want Bowe, Idk why but I just cant seem to trust him I'd fear another David Boston mess. If Jennings leave we should obviously snatch him, but wouldn't count on it. So yea, and please please we need a fix in our secondary. Yet this year the draft is thin in corners, such bad luck smh. Oh and Tyrann Mathieu would be great too in the 3rd, I know he's not great in coverage but he is a weapon I'll tell ya!

    I'm not as high on the WR group this year at least not yet. In my eyes if banks, or milliner are there we have to take them. this secondary is scary bad. we get lit up by jake locker, and just wait til we see fitz and brady. hell even russel wilson... this team has holes, and in my opinion, the biggest one is secondary. I want a cb with mad skills, I might even look to take a safety that has that enforcer attitude, before I go diving into the WR selection.

    we aren't built for a shootout, so we need to limit the points allowed. secondary help can do that.

    Agree with that approach, as long as we go with receivers and secondary players in the draft I'll be fine. But **** if Manti Teo is there, I'd be tempted to pull the trigger on him lol.

    I'd have to really think before passing on teo as well. but I also like arthur brown, and a.j. klein quite a bit. klein will probably go a full round later and i dont know that theres major dropoff there. need to do more studying but, klein can ball.
    either way, I think our first round selection had probably better go towards defense.

    Woods is a slot WR. I'd rather scoop Keenan Allen if we can get him, I think he would be a better fit for us. Also, Mathieu probably won't be drafted at all, he can't put the pipe down. No need to use any picks on drug addicts.
    Jets suck, Bills suck, Patriots suck.

Your Sparano prediction was so spot on, it will be Irelands kiss of death.
