Thank you.

I tend to go outside of conventional wisdome with the CB's this year. If Thomas isnt available I absolutely LOVE Devin McCourty if he is left on the board. He is going to be a stud for some team. I actually put him at #17 due to his CB & KR ability and based on the fact that his strengths meet the 49ers needs.

McCourty has good inponderables - bright guy, picked up the playbook at Rutgers super-quick and is a potential ST monster, so I see where you're coming from. I like Wilson because he's tough and aggressive and hits harder than a 5-10 CB should. I'd be happy with either to be honest

Nice work LLT. If things pan out that way Jacksonville is going to have a load of suitors lining up for a crack at Eric Berry.

They want Tebow in a big way and a giant bidding war would erupt for access to the #10 pick.

Derrick Morgan is also a huge steal at #19.

Those two picks alone would turn the draft upside with potential trades.

WIth Jerry Hughes. Maurkice Pouncey, Jermaine Gresham left on the board and under the new draft format I would imagine that there would be a lot of activity at the end of the first day lining up day 2 trades.

As alway, a great job. I like any draft that has us getting Thomas. I agree with you on McCourty, he will skyrocket by draft day.

There is a good chance that Pouncy may go to the Colts at the end of the first round, but I still lean towards Indianapolis taking care of their DT deficiency.

Gresham has been on and off my first round board. Especially when considering the Bengals. I try and look at the draft from a GM's point of view. This draft is deep ar TE and with TE's like Gronkowski, Graham, Dickerson, and Pitta available later (and with the fact that Cincy picked up a 3rd round TE last year). I just dont see anyone in the first round who's TE need is great enough to use a pick. I think NFLdraftscout has him ranked #28 overall...so its possible he slips into the early part of the 2nd round.

I think Hughes slips into the first round under two conditions,

1) Teams have too many questions about Sergio Kindles character
2) Teams back away from Jason Pierre-Paul due to his lack of resume.

I like your pick with Thomas I think he is going to be a stud for the Black and Gold.

He is so versatile and meets two specific needs at CB and Safety...He is one of the players we brought in for a personal workout...He is a high character young man, preachers son who plays the piano at his church, who only left college because his families home was destroyed after a hurricane and he wants to buy them a new one. I gotta say.......

I LOVE this kid!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree with his mock draft for 2010. The main reason I wouldn't take Iupati in the first round is because we have a young and unproven OG in Kraig Urbik. I'd at least give him a shot just like Keenan Lewis and Joe Burnett will get a shot this year as well.

I would be extremely happy with that draft, my friend. Seems like people quit talking about Neal but he could bolster out D-line very well. Chaney could be a very good addition, and a great 4th round pick. There is not a person on that list that I wouldn't want.
