Cool PLEASE BE GENTLE

I'm going to attempt to predict our first 3 rounds and give my reasoning.....please remember I'm just a waterboy (think Adam Sandler), but this is all in good fun!

Round 1: Brandon Albert....I know I know we just signed an O-lineman, but I think
that Hartwig is just a short term (2-3 year solution). In the meantime we
have a guard/tackle for 10 years. That will give us a chance to draft a
Center next year in a more center-rich draft OR develop one from within.

Round 2: Derrick Harvey.....May be a little bit of a stretch here, but I think his 98
tackles is well worth it.

Round 3: Adarius Bowman.....Big Ben finally gets his wish.

The biggest drawback to these picks is a lack of a shutdown corner. I could see us taking Talib or Flowers in the first, but I think we may still pick up someone later in the draft, or even a free agent (Raiders may have a couple extras) or we could always trade for Pacman kidding kidding kidding...please put down that shotgun

So there's my first three....I'm not smart enough to figure out who's going to be left in rounds 4-7 (well 6 for us--thanks for the memories Rossum:P). Plus I think these rounds are for developmental players/flyers.

LET THE DEBATE BEGIN!!!!!!!!

I think with the Hartwig signing we might look to fill our OL needs in 2-3 which leaves the #1 as a best player available pick.

If Brandon Albert makes it to 23, he will be the best available player.

Derrick Harvey will not make it out of the 1st round, he may not make it to 23. If we get Harvey in the 2nd round, I'm buying the beer.

Adarius Bowman has been sliding badly for the last couple of months, he has been having a case of the droppsies and right at the moment would probably would not go before the 4th or 5th round. He did have a good pro day and may have time to recover, but time is running out on him.

But these are all good players, thanks for the effort.

talib is not a shutdown CB. he is basically another mcfadden. i hope the steelers don't pull another bonehead move like they did when drafting the overrated simmons in the first round.

IMO, talib has too many negatives/doubts to be a first rounder.

Albert in the first - Yes. Id support that totally
Harvey is gone by our pick
Bowman goes one or two rounds later ( but I do like him despite his falling stock)

Cheers

I'm not sure we take a o-lineman in the 1st either since the drafting of Hartwig, but I don't see a corner back or d-lineman worth the 23rd pick.....

i would be happy with albert in round 1 and harvey in round 2 that would probably one of the biggest steals, but unlikely to happen.
