    If Hickey can find a starting RT and G in the later rounds then awsome.

    But we all keep forgeting that Hiceky/Philbin have 1-2 years to turn this tea around or its the chopping block.

    Sure, we could use upgrades at certain weak positions. But we are kidding ourselves if we dont say O-line is a hot turd at this point (apart from LT and C).

    Hickey and the team need READY NOW players. Not developmental players that will take 2-3 years to fruit.

    We need plug and play. And that is harder to find in the deeper rounds.

    Well its certainly not his fault I agree. However, he is going to be judged on how well this team does this year. I am a BPA guy...thats my style. Id take Fuller or Shazier or several other players over one of those RT and look for a RT in the 2nd. Im not drafting though...and I can tell you this. If Hickey waits on a RT and that guy ends up getting destroyed this year and Tannehill is taking sacks from that side like we have Clabo out there again...you and I both know who the finger is going to be pointed at.

    Again, I think you can trade down...pick BPA, then trade back up in the 2nd if you think there is going to be a run. I just dont see Moses and James going in the first...maybe one.

    In a deep draft like this one, I'd prefer to trade back. There seems to be many good players that will be available in the top four rounds, not to mention those that fall lower. More chances to hit good players with more picks.
    Just win.... please!

    Not a fan of Fuller?? Thats surprising. I think Verrett is a good fit but I think Fuller is better. He's by far the best tackler in this class...and I think he is excellent in off man and zone in addition to man. He plants well...good fluid hips.

    I actually like both of those guys more than Gilbert.

    Would love that senario.

    I'm not in favor of those guys at 19, and only Lee and Moses are guys I'd spend a first rounder on.

    But, we would be foolish and incompetent if we were not putting out feelers to determine the general parameters of both trading up and down. I fully believe we have had those discussions and more not mentioned. That allows us options when things do not play out as the mocks thought it would.

    If Calvin Pryor is not there, or Zach Martin, trade down to 27 and take Ja'Juan James and pick up an extra 2nd.

    We would have to give up way more than a second rounder to move into the top 10. We don't have the picks to make that move this year. Last year we had two second rounders and took a chance.

    There are a LOT of good CB prospects in this draft. If I wanted an instant starter I'd look for who falls to 50, otherwise, there is good CB value in every round and some good talent that will even go undrafted this year.

    While the WR talent is ridiculously overwhelming, it has largely gone unmentioned that this is the deepest CB draft in a very long time ... perhaps ever. There will be several Nolan Carroll type players coming out of the late rounds and UDFA class.

    I would be very aggressive in recruiting UDFA's at WR, CB and OL this year. I think that is part of our player visit strategy with guys like Shaquille Richardson from Arizona. I also like how Seattle put out a recruiting brochure to agents about it.

    This is quite a draft class.
