    Philbin has a ton of pull. He can wipe guys off Ireland's draft board entirely

    I'm pretty much in agreement with most of what has been posted. I would think Philbin sets the table; what positions are in most need, what type of player, etc. and likely will offer some specific players he likes. It is then up to Ireland to meet those needs. If they disagree it is then up to Ireland to either go with Philbins choice or his own. As for whether to make a trade or not I would assume Philbin has a lot of input, but again, Ireland has the ultimate responsibility as to whether or not to pull the trigger.
    Insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results. I should know. I've been there.

    So really, when trying to guess what will happen on draft day, we ought to be thinking what Philbin wants, rather than what Ireland wants. Maybe Ireland wants to go OLine with the 12th, but maybe Philbin wants to add more offensive weapons. I would think Ireland will draft for his coach since it'll be the coach and the staff who has to work with his players.
