Here we go again...complete with trades!!!!!
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?
Pass rushing OLB to replace McGinest.
Mike Oher OT
They need help badâ€¦30th in sacks allowed in 08!
Sure, they could go with Andre, but at this point they canâ€™t afford another problem.
Go with the good guy story instead.
Jeremy Maclin WR
This is where Raji should go, but Undead Al doesnâ€™t like to do what he should.
Instead of addressing their biggest weakness with the BPA, they go for the playmaker with speed.
Consistent production at WRâ€¦JAX fans go, â€œWhat???â€
If he werenâ€™t available, somebody might move up for Raji.
Peria Jerry LDE/DT Theyâ€™ve got Picket and Jolly at NT, but not much behind the oft injured Jenkins and Harrell on the ends.
PJ makes them more physical up front and Aaron Kampman even more dangerous.
I know, Raji is BPA, but Jackson has the build to play LDE in their 3-4 and while they got 40+ tkls each out of both of their DTs, they only got 40 tkls and 3.5 sacks total out of LDE last season.
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 think he could still go higher.
Broncos should be stoked, but seeing what JMc has done so far, heâ€™ll probably go for Knowshon Moreno instead.
Could he get Dirty with Sanchez?
To me Cassell is not a WC QB.
They really do need some OL helpâ€¦theyâ€™ve been buried by injuries and old age.
Andre the giant will remind them of the hogs.
If theyâ€™re not sold on Campbell, Sanchez is a WCO QB who might be hard for the new coach to pass on.
At least a nickel back, possible starter/depth at both.
OK, Iâ€™m convinced, their need at OLB out weighs QB value.
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.
They canâ€™t believe heâ€™s there for them.
Eben Britton OT
This guy can play either side while they figure out where they want last yearâ€™s top pick, C. Williams.
Both years starters at OT are gone!
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!!
With the FA additions of Dawkins, Goodman, and Hill, DEN now has the cornerstones of a very goof defense.
Pound the rock, play solid D, floop the QB!
Knowshon Moreno RB
A good all purpose back to team with Westbrook and insure them against injury and future negotiations.
Chris â€œBeanieâ€ Wells RB
A local beast of a RB to help carry the load in Manginiâ€™s run first offense.
He now knows all about protecting questionable QBs with the ground game, and doesnâ€™t think J.Lewis can do it on his own.
Aaron Maybin OLB
He edges out Laurinaitis barely because of his speed, and gives Belicheck another dangerous weapon at LB.
Clay Mathews OLB
Fits the biggest need given their FA losses.
Percy Harvin WR
A top notch playmaker for Pennington who makes their Wildcat even more dangerous.
Darius H-B WR
The local kid gives the Ravens a real threat at WR.
Hakeem Nicks WR
A tough all around WR to replace the old.
Yeah, I keep thinking theyâ€™ll draft defense, but they really like to keep Peyton happy I guess.
William Beatty OT
Big enough to add bulk and quick enough to handle speed rushers.
None of their current guys have started at LT, so a slight reach but a huge need.
Darius Butler CB
He improves the nickel and their return game.
With Ward signing elsewhere, Bradshaw will be relied upon to run more.
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.
(They lost McFadden (CB) and Smith (S) in FA.)
DET gives Denver the 20th overall pick, Drew Stanton, and a conditional next year in the 2-5 range based on starts etc.
DEN signs another vet QB (Garcia) and drafts a project later.
CLE gives MIN their 2nd round pick for two years running.
With the 4th pick of the 2nd round the Vikings select Kenny Britt, a tough physical receiver who will help out AP in more ways than one.
With the 54th overall pick, (Iâ€™m hoping) we select Max Unger, the versatile OL guy to push Cook immediately and back us up in case Sullivan and/or Herrera have issues at Center.
