    I hope this time around they do something to aid our pass defense. Etiher by pass rush or shut down corner. We are the only team that can make Tebow look like a brady or a manning. I keep saying it over and over. If the opposing qb is playing from his backside or running for his life, he can not beat you.

    We've needed to draft in the secondary for SO many years its not even funny yet it kept getting overlooked.

    I'd like to see offensive lineman and secondary picks primarily in this draft.

    This is what I think. They need to draft a starting guard, a noes tackle, a tackle through the draft or free agency, a Safety, and a running back.

    Guard
    Nose Tackle
    Tackle
    Safety
    Running Back - Ganaway, Terrance RB - 6-0 - 240 - SR - Baylor Bears - DeKalb, Texas/DeKalb HS/Texarkana College

    Thats five pick. They should trade Mendenhall for more picks, especially because of his injury, and now that they know Redman can get the job done. With Redman and Ganaway, who is very fast for his size, they will have a great one two punch.

    I'm actually fine with our corners, and who knows if Cortez and Curtis Brown are future stars? Not really a lot of room on this roster for another CB.

    We need a better offensive line, anyone can be upgraded on the line except for Pouncey. We need a Farrior replacement and a Hampton replacement maybe we can find them in the draft, but I doubt it.

    Yup. I'd even consider going more towards a hybrid NT in the Sapp mold in order to generate a quicker pass rush. I think the days of the fat, strong and slow NT's are coming to an end with the new pass-happy NFL.

    Don't think we need DB help yet (maybe another athletic safety) as we should focus on OL and the front seven on D.

    Can't imagine we'd get much for a broken down RB....

    Haven't we drafted 4 corners in past 2 drafts?

    I think number 1 need is OL.

    Beyond that, DL.

    Yes, we've drafted a bunch, but no one has started yet... and some others aren't even on the roster now (Burnett, .
    Wonder if they haven't seen anything they like, or if they are just going to be backups.

    There is still room in the secondary for us to draft two DBs. William Gay might be gone next year, and we could definitely ditch Will Allen to open up a spot for a young future starter at safety.

    Taylor - Lewis - Brown - Allen - ?
    Clark - Polamalu - Mundy - ?

    i'd sure like to get markelle martin at safety. there will be one heck of a battle in camp over the CB spot. it should be fun to watch. :cool:

    I believe our future DL selections must have pass rushing abilities
    and potential, it is imperative now that the league has changed the rules so much
    in favor of the offense. I would really prefer a DL like NY Giants they get after the Qb.
    This is the type of football I like to see.
