Default Let's talk draft now that season is over

Tough season. And perhaps the end of careers for a few fan favorites. Hoping for the best next year. Anyhow, what direction do you guys think we go in the draft? Our philosophy is typically BPA. I think we need to get another top flight o-lineman. Pouncey and Gilbert are good building blocks.

But the super genius Airhead Arians won't use a full back.

Another MLB wouldn't be bad honestly. Consider Farrior and Foote's age and that Slyvester may just be a ST guy. Wouldn't want a RB in R1 but if we find one in the middle rounds I wouldn't be too upset though I was impressed with Redman today. Love his toughness.

Then drafting a FB is what people will least expect. Get a good FB in the first round, and then Arians will have everybody exactly where he wants them!

I think we need to go O-line first round. I know the secondary had a pretty bad showing tonight, but I would imagine that when the coaches review film from the season they won't be too worried about Ike, Gay, Polamalu, and Clark.

we took a couple of stabs at corner the last couple of years in the mid rounds. Hopefully, 2 of them develop well. As bad as Ike was today..... and he had a career low in my opinion against the worst starting passer in the NFL and a no name WR, I think he had a solid season and is an overall good corner for the next 3 years or so. Other side? Well, Gay was OK this year. I really think the no pressure thing killed us most of the year. Virtually no pass rush for most of the year. I go there. As much as we've invested at LBer, I think Harrison is gone, Farrior retired. That leaves us Woodley, Timmons, Worilds, Let's go get another playmaking LBer, a NT, and an OG.

As weak as O-Line was I think Pouncey and Gilbert are good to go for the next 7 or 8 years. Starks had a nice year, I thought. After that, the rest are backup or depth quality I think, which we need. A stud guard could be had at # 24, which is where we pick I believe.

I agree with offensive line and secondary. Who are some talented players coming out this draft?

I haven't really followed college ball this year, so not sure of the talent level coming out.
