    Your WAY WAY off about Dion Jordan. Did you have Chandler Jones as a first rounder last year? Many consider Dion Jordan to be a better version of Chandler Jones and he is getting all sorts of love right now.

    After going with first rounders on DEs the last few years, and with McClendon and T'amu in place at NT, I really think there is no way they go DL early, if at all. We got to find a replacement for Troy Always-hurt-mu and an upgrade at CB, first and foremost, plus get ILB help. DL won't be a priority compared to those spots.

    WalterFootball.com, a very well-respected draft site has Dion Jordan going in the mid 2nd-round at #52 in their latest mock draft that was just updated yesterday:

    52. San Diego Chargers: Dion Jordan, DE/OLB, Oregon

    The Chargers just spent an early pick on a rush linebacker (Melvin Ingram), so why would they do that again? Well, Shaun Phillips will be a 32-year-old free agent next March, so San Diego will need a complement for Ingram.

    Don't worry, we draft potheads now. He just has to get in his car and drive to Pittsburgh the week before the draft and tell our people that he has always wanted to be a Pittsburgh Steeler.

    Where do you think Werner of FSU fits in the NFL? My Bro-in-law is an alum and I watched them a couple of times when he came to visit recently. I believe he is around 6' 4" and very athletic. What do you gurus think? 3-4 OLB, 4-3 DE, 3-4 DE?

    I love all three of those players..but I dont think Tony Jefferson is a first round pick. Mid to late second rounder. Last year at this time before Skov got hurt I was advocating the Steelers getting him. ILB in a 3-4.

    I think he can play both but since he's playing DE in a 4-3 I thank that would pay off a lot sooner in the NFL. If I'm not mistaken I dont think he has played a lot of football. So he is still learning.

    I could be wrong. There is a premium put on pass rushers and he could shoot up the boards. Every draft publication I've seen has him rated mid second round. I just dont think he is in the class of those I have listed at this time.
