    I know the latter is a type of pick that is normally "Out of character" for the FO...but I think we are going to have to take some chances on some guys this year....meaning high risk, high reward guys..
    Lyerla is just too good not to get drafted. I can't even imagine this O with Heath, Evans, Lyerla, Brown and Bell...oh man.

    I agree. Imagine those skilled players with a much improved offensive line (insert Munchak here)...

    My main concern at this point is the front 7 on defense... especially if Hood and Woods depart as expected.

    There's some depth at CB.
    Personally if we grab a playmaker at 15, then we need DEFENSE with #2, 3 & 4

    I know it would be a popular move for the Lions to take the Michigan State kid. My brother-in-law and his buddies really want Dennard.

    I would love for the Steelers to sign a NT in FA so they can eliminate any thoughts of drafting one and then move McClendon to DE...
    ours is not to wonder why just invert and multiply...

    I'll celebrate if the Bills make a splash WR signing, because I think Buffalo will target Evans at #9. They need weapons for Manuel. Maybe they'd throw us a curveball and prefer a TE like Ebron at #9 thinking they can get a solid WR later since it is such a deep class of wideouts. Then maybe Evans falls to #15, which I would like very much, and so would Ben. Ebron to BUF, Gilbert or Dennard to DET, Barr to TEN, Lewan to NYG, Clinton-Dix or Pryor to STL, Donald or Jernigan to CHI, and Evans to PIT. That would be pretty sweet.

    1.30 ILB Zach Cunningham 6'3" 234 Vanderbilt
    2.62 OLB Jordan Willis 6'4" 255 Kansas State

    3.105c CB Rasul Douglas 6'2" 209 West Virginia

    5.173 FS John Johnson 6'1" 205 Boston College
    6.213 TE Michael Roberts 6'4" 270 Toledo
    7.248 RB Elijah Hood 6'0" 232 North Carolina

    They could have had Al Woods for not that much, but they let him walk...don't know if they'll find a better deal on a NT in FA...
