    I woulnd't mind if we drafted 2 of those 10 guys.

    I'm thinking Dion Jordan and Tank Carradine. Dion Jordan would just bring so much athleticism to our LB group. He'd essentially become our own version of Von Miller. Then Tank with that second pick in the 3rd round (falls due to injury) we could put opposite of Cam Wake up front while kicking Odrick inside next to big Paul.

    Remember we got Misi in his final year, and Dansby/Burnett could potentially be in there final years with ballooning contracts in 2014. Draft a pair of WR's and a CB with those 2 2nd round picks and that first 3rd rounder.

    DEFENSIVE END Rankings 1-10

    Not sure about how Moore compares to Justin tuck. But I agree with Werner being the top guy.

    I think Jenkins and lemonier will end up being steals.

    I think my top 5 would go

    1. Werner
    2. Moore
    3. Jordan (who I think people assume can't hold his water against the run, but I think he does a more than acceptable job for the impact plays he'll make in the passing game)
    4. Ansah
    5. Margus Hunt

    I wouldnt be surprised if jenkins and carradine have a better career than werner....i hate knowing werner will go to jax or oakland.

    I hope we land one of the three fsu boys.

    I would take Jenkins with our first second rounder.. Carradine too if they check out ok medically... both are big time talents who could be the two biggest steals of the draft

    I like the effort, like the writeups

    The comparisons are way off base. There's a JPP clone in the draft and you skipped him! Hint, he's on BYU

    Thanks for the OP tho!

    I love the Jones kid from UCLA from what I have seen this week. Could be a good fit for Miami. Okafor is solid to.

    I was very high on Ansah coming into this week and I have cooled a lot. He is just not ready to help a team that needs help now. Too much of a major project.

    some people on NFLN are totally dispelling this notion.
