MarshallFin 1 seem to forget the most important thing about defensive football and that is the QB cannot function from flat on his back, and the more you pressure him the more ducks he will serve up. The best corner can only cover for so long. If you look at our pass rush what you see is if Wake does not get quick pressure there is no pressure outside of the occasional corner blitz. The Giants showed the blueprint against teams like the Packers, Saints and Pats. If you choose to ignore that you can't see the forest for the trees.
As far as going WR in the first round, the highest rated WR is only #12 (where we are projected to draft). There are no sure fire super studs there.
we're just gonna have to wait and see who all enters the draft. Right now, Keenan Allen seems like an obvious pick. But names you aren't even discussing will pop up by April. This point last year, RG3 and Tannehill weren't seen as top 10 picks. Hell people weren't really talking about RG3 as a first rounder until he won the Heisman.
Mayock has got Allen @ #24
I'm of the opinion that we get some offensive line help in free agency. But, if that doesn't happen and the team lets Jake Long go you can put offensive line near the top of the needs list. I think I'd get one of the top pass rushers in round 1 since we only have Wake and then go heavy offense the rest of the way. We need to find explosive players who can make a difference. If the team goes wide receiver in the 1st, I'd be happy with Keenan Allen, Cordarelle Patterson or Justin Hunter (maybe with a slight trade down).
