Default The dream draft to me this year

would be

1st round: Duke Robinson
2nd round: Alex Boone

although i loved the draft last year of rashard mendenhall and limas sweed, i dont hope we get the sexy picks this year. if it were me lineman with the first 2 picks and d lineman and cornerbacks for the rest, but those first two picks would be a dream if that happened

I think they go Line with first 2 picks. I think I see a priority going into every draft and this poor O-line has to stop.

2007: LBs: Timmons and Woodley
2008: Offensive players: Mendenhall and Sweed
2009: I would love to get 2 offensive lineman.

I think the sexy players this year are the o-line. I think there is an abundance of quality o-line this year and we really need to take advantage of this and get our line set for the next few years

I really do like you picks Gonzo, but still think I would switch the OG and C pick, I think you can fill in the names.

I got ya, but I dont think Vasquez is gonna last to the end of the 3rd. I'm OK with either of those though.

Sorry Gonzo, but after watching the championship game, I think we need to take Phil Loadholt, Ciron Black or Michael Oher to play LT! Whichever is the first available.

Go with Alex Mack or Max Unger in the second at center.... unless DE Tyson Jackson is still there when we pick....

Herman Johnson would be a good gaurd too....

And how about WR Juaquin Iglesias as our future replacement-for-Hines-in-waiting?

You just named my all time worst draft nightmare.

Max Unger in the bowl game and reg season game against Cal got pushed into the backfield much like Sean Mahan did all last season....I dont want him as a Steeler, unless its to play RT.

Ciron Black I watched several times and he lacks lateral quickness to pass block. He honestly looked like a decent run blocker that may move to Guard at the NFL, but should stay in school.

Herman Johnson is huge, but the slowest guy on the field and he doesnt bend at the knees or waist to get under his blocker. I think he tries to drop 20lbs and play RT.

Tyson Jackson in the 4 LSU games I saw tries to handfight the blocker in pass rush, he looks like he is playing pattycake with the blocker. Ole Miss put a tight end on him one on one and handled him. When he does engage the blocker in run plays I see glimpses of power, but for the most part I think he is very overrated.

Alex Mack, I love his game.

It pains me to say this as an LSU fan, but you're right. Opposing quarterbacks had time to make a sandwich before almost every pass this year.

I don't think we need to worry about the D-line yet, though. I want our picks to be LT, LG, C, RG, and RT.
