I just don't see the requirement for a two down, space eating player when there are going to be better prospects on the board. I know he helps free up our Linebackers, but this is assuming he even starts in our system. Remember, rookies rarely start.

Mosley is a huge improvement over Williams. Gilbert and Dennard could both easily start right away in the Nickle or even opposite Allen. HaHa gives us a viable 1-2 punch at Safety. I just think that there are better prospects at positions of greater need.

I hear you... but, some counter points:

1. Casey started as a rookie.

2. In today's NFL, passing is indeed more of a factor. But, you have to get teams in third-&-long. Nix ensures that teams can not run on first & second downs (giving themselves third-&-short).

3. Irish Chocolate!!!

(Check out Gilbert's burn-rate. He scares me.)

I would love a guy like Nix too, or that big dude Denver got from Jacksonville, but most of all, I want INTERCEPTIONS......... INT=ball in BB hands more....

Whenever you read/say the words "Irish Chocolate!!!" you should hear it/say it like this:

Casey may have, but so did Jarvis. Nix still has that knee and fluctuating weight issue to tackle.

If we need a space eating Tackle, those guys are easy to find in the later rounds. Getting a blue chip Linebacker or CB prospect isn't easy to find past the first round. Hell, they're hard to find period.

Gilbert does have a bad burn rate, but that's because he gambles. He creates interceptions and he generates turnovers. He also played with some questionable Safeties as well. If we were to pair him up with an Ed Reynolds or Deonne Bucannon, I don't think he gets burned quite as often. It's a pro/con thing - he may indeed get burned, but he'll getcha interceptions as well.

If you wanted the safer route, Dennard doesn't get burned. He doesn't even really get beat.

There are even fewer blue chip NTs. Poe... Wilfork... uh... Poe.

I'd prefer Dennard over Gilbert (and so would LeBeau).

The guy to watch is Terrance Mitchell; the dude never gets burned. He's not great, but he's a solid #2. Also, a hitter at CB is Bene Benwikere out of San Jose St. Those two guys could be the "late round steals" that Kam Chancellor & Richard Sherman were: big, physical CBs.
