I guess we will sign FA #1 WR. Ireland because of the extra picks does not have to draft WR or CB in the first round.
It comes down to long.

If we resign long, then Ireland will draft a DE or CB with first pick. I do believe he will double down on DBs., CB and S. 1st round will be DE Dion Jordan from Oregon. I would be happy with Jordan Banks too here.

If we let Long go, it will be Eric Fisher LOT.
This is good reasoning. My guess is we will have a huge hole at CB heading into the draft. Sean Smith is asking for $10 million a year, which is about what Mike Wallace is asking for. Now I know it's apples to oranges, but Wallace is way, way better than Smith. The team will have to let him go IMO leaving a need for two starting cb's. We could get one in free agency, but probably not if we sign Wallace or Jennings and a handful of our own guys. I would love to see the team sign Jake Long because it's harder to find his replacement than people think and would likely mean using a #1 pick on the oline.
