I hope we can answer our wr problem during free agency so that we can draft a middle linebacker with our first pick. I would crap if Te'o was available at 23, but maybe he will fall sorta like Harvin did because of a stupid incident. Resign Harvin long term is also a priority this offseason.
Smarter option is to take WR in the first (others took DE and DT's) and then take a second tier DT in the second. Should have some nice options at Warpig in the second and then value wise you can grab another WR in the 4th or even 5th and get a kid pretty much the same as the guys who would be there in the second.
Unlike all of you I don't think we have as big an issue at LB as we do at DT. Just like the CB play, you add a nice Warpig in the middle and your LB'rs can then play off the line more and not have to help in the area that should be taken care of by that warpig, which isn't getting taken care of by the way.
I think we address LB, but it will be a OLB and it will be in the 3rd with a cat like Chase Thomas to replace Henderson if Audie Cole can't do it. Even if Audie is to be the next guy, I still think the staff will go LB in the 3rd.
So my guess is the team willnot draft a WR unless they are in love with the guy and he is the PBA in Ricky's eyes.
I am a HUGE Notre Dame fan and earlier in the season if you told me we were going draft Teo I woulda been pumped. BUT, after watching the national championship game where he was going against other NFL talent and speed he looked like a boy among men. He was not good at all. At this point I'm hoping we don't draft him if he's there at 23 or wherever the hell we draft.
You are correct sir, but it was the only game in his career that he played against many future NFL guys and they made him a non factor. The game only gets bigger, faster, stronger in the NFL and if the national title game was a glimpse into that for him, his future is bleak. Don't get me wrong, I've loved the guy since the day he said I'm not going to USC I'm going to Notre Dame, but right now I'm bumming for the guy because I don't think his college game is going to translate well to the NFL.
