Default What position to target #1?

Looking at some of the first mock drafts, I see some pundits saying we go ILB, OG, DL or CB with the first pick. Where should we go? We have needs at all spots, and of course it depends on who comes off the board.....but what position would you like to see targeted at #1?

For me, I think we need help on the O Line, but I'd like to see us target a FA there, and go with a D Lineman or ILB to replace Foote and/or Farrior.

The best available player at OL,DL,CB,or LB. Unless Luck somehow happens to fall all the way to 24 or the guaranteed 2nd coming of Walter Peyton happens to fall in our lap.

Depends if we will go against the grain and bring in some free agents. If we plan on having a great draft again, and stocking on on more DB's that can't play, than we might go DB DB DB DB OL, lol

But I'll go out on a limb and guess we go best available, lol

Sure hope its an OL or a corner.

Is the uperbowl over yet so we can move onto the draft stuff?lol

CORNERBACK.

Then we need to look at CORNERBACK.

And if there's time, we can even consider a CORNERBACK.

Guard. We can argue about whether there's another season to squeeze out of the likes of Farrior and Foote, but there's no such discussion at guard. There's nothing there to begin with.

You've got to remember LeBeau is not going to let any defensive draft player start, especially at a position like ILB. It'll take a year for them to learn the defense.

I feel your pain lol, but we got 2 CB's that we drafted last year that are supposed to be pretty good. If we get a shut down CB then it will be in FA, otherwise I'd like to see what the 2 draft picks we have now are capable of, no sense in getting corners to sit behind our back up corners.

MLB and either Guard position would be my #1, but I think we need to get a FA guard for next year. It's only a matter of time till Ben gets tremendously injured behind our O line. I think Gilbert will pan out, Pouncey is great, and I think Starks does pretty good at LT, so I would draft at guard, but as I mentioned, we don't need somebody to play guard in a few years, we need it NOW!!!!
