    Drafting Defensively or Offensively ?

    I wanna know what you think. I personally think we need to draft both but more defensively. For example the second round pick from the dolphins should be used for a StrongSafety. To help replace Corey Chaveous. I am curious what you guys think.

    I said the same as you vikingsbenchwarmer.. We need Linebackers and a Safety more than anything on Offense.

    We are clearly rebuilding and need to take the best player available reguardless of position.

    I know this is a cop-out, but I think there are good opportunities on both sides. This year, you can't focus solely on either one.

    I am all for picking up Ernie Sims and making him our Strong Safety and not a linebacker. I think that would be very cool. I just don't know that if we haven't figured out our QB situation that I would be comfortable not taking a QB with one of our first two picks.
    Four score and seven years ago, Brad Childress has brought upon this team, a west coast offense, conceived in San Francisco, and Dedicated to be a Kick jiggly butt offence. We are now engaged in an NFL season, testing weather that offense can get going or that our defense can long endure.

    this is an excellent draft for defensive players, the list is deep on that side of the ball. im glad we have 3 picks in the top 51 because there is a lot of talent that we can get out of this draft.

    Im not really impressed with the offensive players in this draft. There seems to be a few that look like they will be stars but I see more potential on the defensive side.

    I say draft all defense in the first couple rounds then draft oline and other offensive needs.
