I really want Nix, but Ford in R2 and then, also getting Bucannon in R3... wow!!! that would be a helluva draft!!!

Anyway, the point being: I'd be fine with going for an OLB, and letting Wprilds walk... especially if that OLB is Dee Ford.
would like a wr in the first 3 round but I'd be happy if this happens

Exactly.

Any personal preferences aside, that is a great draft.

yeah but not sure Ford falls to us unless teams are concerned about his medical but I'm sure its not serious.

If he dont fall I'd replace Ford with Jordan Matthews or Martavis Bryant

R1: CB, Darqueze Dennard
R2: WR, Jordan Matthews/Martavis Bryant
R3: SS Deone Bucannon

that mock gets me all excited

That's what makes it such a great draft: Ford in R2 is a steal.

Even though I want us to resign Worilds but since the cap number has gone up teams are going to be throwing a lot of $$$$$ at him and I'm not sure we'll overpay him.

So keep Woodley for another year and coach up Ford to be the starter in the 2015-2016 season

Yep.
Worilds is too expensive.

And, I honestly think that Woodley is going to get cut June 1st.

What will they do at OLB??? I'm not exactly sure, but a R2 (or even R1) OLB would not surprise me in the least.

Jssom Wprilds, the best free agent linebacker nobody's talking about.

Keep Jasom Worilds.

Let Jason Woirlds go.

Trade Jssom Wprilds for Jqwerty War-roilds.

Not sure they'll cut Woodley if Worilds isn't resigned. But Ford seems like a guy who would need a year imo heard he needs to get stronger and get better against the run.

Youth and talent, as well as depth, is absolutely needed.

Telvin Smith isn't going to be a first or second round pick, either. He's going to be a third - fourth round guy who has amazing upside as a Safety.
That is fine, if Telvin Smith goes in the 4th then great. I said WAllen would be back because I don't think they are going for a top prospect in this draft at Safety, kind of an emergency really as we could use the veteran help. I don't know much about TSmith, but if you say he has an amazing upside I believe you, however I am reading into this as he is not coming out of college as a first year starter also (hence the need for WAllen for another year). I agree our secondary is hurting, which is why I would like our 1 or 2 pick to be a CB to replace Ike and play along side CAllen. Unfortunately if we draft Ike's replacement, we need to keep Ike until the rookie learns the system, which is why I think we will keep Ike for one more year. Of course if we get a FA CB to replace Ike, then we no longer need to draft a CB or need Ike and can use that pick on other needs. I just posted what I think is going to happen is all.

Until FA starts and we see what is done, it is just all speculation based on what I read. Rooney's love Ike, he is willing to take a paycut, so the upside as far as Cap and personnel goes, would it be more effective (moneywise) to keep Ike for one more year and replace him with a rookie or pick up the cost of a good FA?
