I think there is noway in hell that Wells goes top 5.
Here we go...first run through.
What do ya'all think?
Jason Smith OT
It all starts up front and DET has neglected OL for years.
Eugene Monroe OT
Spagnoulo wants to go D, but Pace pushes them to OT.
Aaron Curry LB
He can play LB in 3-4 or 4-3.
Safe pick, first year upgrade
Matt Stafford QB
Matt could use some time with Matt.
Want OL, but better value at QB?
Chris â€œBeanieâ€ Wells RB
Mangini wants to run, JL is old with little depth.
Mike Oher OT
They need help badâ€¦30th in sacks allowed in 08!
Jeremy Maclin WR
The playmaker with speed
Consistent production at WRâ€¦JAX fans go, â€œWhat???â€
Tough decision, him or Raji, but, at the moment, it looks like theyâ€™ve got some meat up front and this is BPA.
Peria Jerry LDE/DT
I know, Raji is BPA, but they only got 40 tkls and 3.5 sacks out of LDE last season.
PJâ€™s lack of room to grow is negated instantly by moving him to a 3-4 LDE.
Singletary had Dent, now Lawson and Hillis get PJ.
Everette Brown DE
26th in sacks and 20th vs. run means they need help up front, and seemingly mostly at DE, (LDE if Schobel is healthy, RDE otherwise)
I canâ€™t believe I dropped him to 12.
Broncos should be stoked, but seeing what JMc has done so far, heâ€™ll probably go for Knowshon Moreno instead.
With the Taylor release, they got nothing at LDE, but Andre Smith would be tempting too.
At least a nickel back, possible starter/depth at both.
Do you think they really want Orlovsky behind Injury prone Shaub?
The big boys go early, and heâ€™s a player with size to help out front.
Wanted to go WR but wasnâ€™t quite ready to reach for Harvin.
Knowshon Moreno RB
I know, theyâ€™re set at RB, but Harvin reminds me of Leon, so the value isnâ€™t quite there at WR and, on paper, their defense looks set.
They were said to have high interest in McFadden last seasonâ€¦
Eben Britton OT
This guy can play either side while they figure out where they want last yearâ€™s top pick, C. Williams.
The best DTs are gone and Freeman is a reach.
BPA gives them youth behind Ronde and an upgrade at nickel.
Rey Maualuga MLB
Instant upgrade to MLB and run defense!!
Andre Smith OT
Too much talent to drop any further.
Hmmm...Harvin, Nicks, or Britt...Take Your Pick!!!
Aaron Maybin OLB
He edges out Laurinaitis barely because of his speed, and gives Belicheck another dangerous weapon on defense.
Brian Cushing OLB They are short a CB and at least one LB.
Cushing is BPA meets need.
Hakeem Nicks WR
Tough, consistent, reliable target for Pennington.
Darius H-B WR
The local kid gives the Ravens a real threat at WR.
Evander â€œZyggiâ€ Hood DT
Even the third best DT is a major upgrade.
They still canâ€™t stop the run unless Sanders does all the tackling.
Donald Brown RB
A Westbrook clone to backup and/or replace as injury dictates.
Tough blocking and possession WR to take the place of
Ron Brace DT
Heâ€™s not Haynesworth but heâ€™s got the size to stop the run.
Brandon Pettigrew TE
They had zero TDs at TE last season.
Good all around player who will help their running game too.
Alphonso Smith CB
I was going to give them Mack or Unger, since they could use help all over the OL, but the thing is, the Steelers donâ€™t draft OL in the first round.
Smith might make their cover D even better.
Top of the Board...Near Misses???
Mike Johnson DE
Josh Freeman QB
William Beatty OT
