Rip away... love to hear the insight from some of you guys on the board...

OLine help
DLine prospects for the future
a Safety to backup Clark and replace him next year
a FB (hope this guys is a great run blocker)
a WR who may be a solid returner

i think this is the perfect draft. I really don't like the QB pick, maybe another OL (you can find talent here) or another DL but i really like this mock draft

I like Ayers, but think he is more of a 4-3 DE. Troy Kropog really struggled in senior bowl practices and at this point would probably be a worse pass protector than Tony Hills.

I think Kropog is a 5th round prospect and Ayers 2nd-3rd. We already have a backup QB in Dixon, so I dont know if we need a 7th round QB......I am pimping Penn St OT -Gerald Cadogin in the 7th if he is still there. Nice effort.

Not bad at all

...I might consider dropping lane...I think he has eaten himself out of the draft...he looked awful in the east-west game.

I agree with Gonzo that Ayers will probably be tagged as a 4-3 DE...I have been looking at Pannel Egboh from Stanford as a 5th round DE...(I think we can get him for a song due to a knee injury midway through his senior season that effected his stats)

LOVE the Martin pick...look for him to move up draft boards before April.

Why draft a FB when you can pick up Kuhn as a FA?

I think I have to rethink this draft... by all accounts it now sounds as though Colbert is making the d-line the priority and I see Mack moving himself up the draft charts and out of our reach...

What about the Dilliard kid from Rice?? He is pretty damn explosive and could add to our return game.

I would not believe much of what Colbert or Tomlin says in any interviews leading up to the draft. If you remember last year they said "we need to get younger up front....on both sides of the ball".

Not exactly like they stuck to what they told the media.
