    throw in the conditioning talk and injury and the decision becomes even easier for me. If they take him, I won't go ballistic.

    its fine, you like him. No need to get your panties in a twist.
    It's probably moot anyway. If his knee checks out, he is long-gone .

    I'm curious though, Eddie. What area(s) would you like us to target in Round 1.

    I'm kinda siding with ovi here. Maybe grab a playmaking WR like evans or watkins at 15, if they are even available there.

    then try to fix the defense 2-5.

    I'm certainly no scout and nix may turn out to be dominant, but the several times I watched ND, I just wasn't overly impressed.

    I'm thinking CB in round one NT in round two

    what CB do you see worth 15?

    seems to be a pretty weak at CB and S at the top of the draft unfortunately.

    I honestly think that NT is the #1 thing we need if we continue to run the 3-4. McClendon simply didn't get it done this year. He moves too much and and shoots gaps trying to get upfield instead of standing his ground, and holding blockers. He ran himself right out of the play so many times this season, leaving the middle of the field vulnerable, and it was exploited by backs and even QB's on several instances. I agree with the premise of releasing Hood and keeping McClendon as the left DE. He penetrates well and that's good for a DE, not a 3-4 NT. Perhaps that was plan all along, until Ta'amu's antics cost him the potential NT job. If Nix is there, you take him. An elite NT in this system instantly makes your MLB's better, and they are already pretty good, and add to that you have Spence coming back next year - an elite NT will turn him loose to do what he does best, RUN to the ball carrier. I think we can pick up some secondary help in later rounds. I think we go NT, WR, and start plugging holes from there.

    Gilbert from OK state would be my first choice, then Dennard from Michigan State (I think we'd trade down to get him though)
    in order my picks would be Gilbert, Ebron (TE) then Dennard (with trade down)

    I agree that Mclendon isn't a good fit for a 2 gap 3-4 defense. He's more of a one gap NT and he's not really even good at that.

    First rule of the NFL draft: your 1st round pick had better be a 'can't miss' prospect. Seems there are enough questions on Nix the team might want to think twice.

    Haven't spent a ton of time on this draft class, so i can't even say who the can't-miss prospects are.
