Thanks for the read, I love all the news and info that I can get on the upcoming draft. Pat kirwan having us take a DE in the 1st round though I dont think I really agree with it, but anything could/can happen I guess.

About a week ago..I did a process of elimination thread to show that there was a good possibility that we may end up with a DE at the end of the first.

One of the "disadvantages" of success, is picking so late and being at the whim of the rest of the leagues needs/wants. Obviously everyone knows that we need lineman...but the way the draft is panning out, there may not be a lineman worthy of the #32 pick...So we may have to pick the BPA (Best Player Available) for our needs, or reach to grab a linemen that otherwise wouldnt go until midway through the second round. (Our other option would be to trade down, but that has been discussed in a seperate thread)

I have no problem with picking up Gilbert at #32 if we are faced with that type of situation.....HOWEVER...if you noticed....Alex Mack is not on Kirwans 1st round draft, and if he is available I would take him over Gilbert. Either way, both these players excite me and I would be happy with that pick.

heres what mayock and sapp had to say at their live chat from the combine on monday-

Mike Mayock, NFL Network
Listen to the name Jarron Gilbert, a defensive end from San Jose State, because he's going to flash and a lot of people are going to have to go back and look at his tape. He's a beast, he's a freak, but he was inconsistent in college.

Warren Sapp, NFL Network
Jarron Gilbert was the YouTube sensation who jumped out of the pool. From a broad stand, he jumped out of the pool.

I don't really agree with that pick, but he can help keep Smith and Keisel fresh by rotating in.

I noticed that he had both Mack and Beatty still there. It would be hard for me to pass on either one of them. I would not complain about Gilbert, if it does happen though.

I still look for Tyson Jackson to slip on draft day....and several of the CB's will drop...possibly pushing some of the players we covet up the boards.

That doesn't sound to good to me. I'm always afraid of guys that move up because the combine, and 3-4 DEs usually used to play 1 tech in a 4-3 defense.

Ehhhh....I don't know about some of his selections. The combine is all about numbers, and they just don't translate...

Stafford #1 is a waste. The QB's in this draft are all nothing super special. The teams that need a QB could probably sit back and wait until Rd 2 and get the same guys there...

Thats a helluva run on D linemen at the end of the first rd. If that happens then I think we could take one then.
