Thanks for the tip. Godfrey looks more like a safety, but would be interesting to see his short shuttle times and see if he has the quickness to play CB.

Thats the tough call. A guy like Porter is quick and fast, but not a big tackler in the run game. Godfrey is bigger and more physical, but might not be as quick in the coverage game.

I have to agree with you and LLT. I'm not big on drafting a center unless it's the 6th or UDFA.

I like Porter, but not being able to support in run defense is a major problem. The corners in our scheme are counted on for run support, to me that eliminates alot of guys.

Godfrey and Morgan are similar at safety, and might be somewhat projects. We do'nt have many picks for the boom or bust type. Although I do like Morgan.

I like Cason for our defensive scheme, and that he also returns. He would probably be the only guy I would take in the 2nd, and he could very well be gone by then.

I like DeCoud for FS, and he will most likely be there in the 3rd. The guy is a solid safety that has experience at CB, and he is a STs demon.
How about Molden CB in the 4th? He's raw but his KEI is great.

If all the top OTs are gone, and Albert is gone I think we will look at WR, or CB, or try to trade out of the 1st round.

My top choice would be the trade.

Legursky is my favorite center in this draft....He has the strength and the stones to handle NTs across the NFL...I don't think Legursky will ever be a Pro Bowl level type player.....But I think he will be a solid center at the NFL level....Mahan clearly isn't the answer and that only leaves Stapleton....The Steelers brass is high on Stapleton but really would hate to just go into training camp with just Mahan and Stapleton....I don't expect Simmons to move to center also....

So I hope Legursky in drafted...

i think they would see if there is a good de/olb or dt there in the 1st since we need help on the d-line as well.. and if we trade out we better get some good things in return..

I agree that the trade would have to be a early 2nd, and an early 3rd.
With that we might be able to get Trevor Law, and a Chilo Rachal. in the 2nd round.
I am hoping that Joe Flacco keeps moving up the list and one of the early teams that didn't take a QB with there 1st pick falls in love with him.
Don't get me wrong, my 1st choice would be to get an O-Lineman that is worth 23, but I would not want them to reach for one.
