If we want him, we're going to have to take him at 48. I can see Williams being there in the third round, but he's gone by the fourth. There's depth at Safety, but that depth only goes so far. If we want one of the guys you mentioned, a second or third (maybe both if we're set on getting chemistry between two young guys) have to be spent on a Safety. The problem that sticks out to me is we can't grab Lattimore in the third round at that point, so someone like Rambo in the fourth would allow us to take Marcus. But, we haven't taken a WR yet which could be a problem. In that scenario, Escobar is also gone.

The more I look at it, the happier I am I don't have to make these kind of decisions.
I keep seeing Swearinger listed low, low, low in mocks & tiered lists. The rationale for this is that he hits "too hard." (WTF!?!) They say that he'll get fined & suspended too much, because of his physical style (again WTF!?!). I could see him going in R2... or, in R4.

Also, I see the safeties dropping, because everyone will be saying, "There's a lot of safeties; we can wait." (Make sense?)

If we had to give up on Lattimore, in order to get a better safety, then I'd take Knile Davis in R5 or R6.

I know the last couple of years he hasn't produced like he has in the past but I do remember him busting into the backfield more then once to make a play.

My brother-in-law always points out those one or two plays, as proof that Casey the Hutt can still play.

My concern is not the occasional QB pressure; my concern is him not being able to stop the run. Unless the RB runs right into him, he no longer is able to stuff the gaps on either side of him.

More importantly, he does not demand a double-team; OCs can handle him 1:1. In turn, OGs are free to block the ILBs.

Teo could drop not just in the second round but possibly in the third round. After what has happened in the past off season. Jones has none of that but will be in the first round. Meaning the baggage that Teo is going through.

What happened this past offseason will never drop him that far and is nothing compared to baggage other players in the draft have. Especially now that the Ratbirds lost Ellerbe, their first pick is all but LOCKED to be Te'o unless somebody else takes him earlier.

mock mock mock mock, as fun as this is for all of you, the only reason I read posts in the war room is for the potential 7th rounders/ufa signings and to laugh at all these out of this world scenarios. Truth is NObody saw us drafting DeCastro last year and we passed up on a cheap Burfict who (as I called it) turned out to be a decent starter in this league. Point is Te'o, J. Jones, Lacy, Austin, Vaccaro, Star bla bla,... none of these will be our first round pick. It'll probably be some OL who slips down the first round...

^^^^ i sort of agree with this man.

Jonathan cooper, Lane Johnson. Both would fit our new switch to a Zone predicated blocking scheme. And the brass did take a run at jake long in FA so don't think for a second they're satisfied with Gilbert and Adams on the edges.

the line is where everything starts on both sides of the ball. I wouldn't be surprised to see them strengthen the O-line in the draft.
