I award you no points, and may God have mercy on your soul.

    With the signing of Carr and Bowman, I'm pretty sure we're not leaning toward Claiborne anymore. Add Cook and Winny returning and AA's development, and that spot is getting pretty full. Not that we can't or won't draft a guy there, just that its not as big a need as it once looked...ie more likely we fill bigger needs with those first two picks.

    MAN! They must be doing some serious work on this draft! Spielman sounds serious about wanting to trade back, and I say why Not!? We've got a lot of needs and its a deep draft at most of them. But, it opens up the ole Can O Worms as far as possibilities go!

    MIA, KC, SEA? ARI? PHI? looking to land Tanehill?
    TB wanting to grab Richardson before the Browns do at 4?
    STL wanting to go get Blackmon? We could take the Skin's 2nd and they'd still have all those extra firsts!

    So, we gotta have a plan A, we stay, most likely Kalil. Plan B, at 6, assuming Trent Richardson occupies one of those top five slots, we're still looking at one of our top three options anyway. But, who's there at 8? Or 11 or 13 or 15!?!???

    And then, depending on who/where we land, the 2nd round plan changes...move back up to snag a true difference maker? Stay put and plug as many holes as possible? Very interesting!


    On another note, I've recently seen a few mocks with Stephen Hill falling to our 2nd and Kalil filling our huge hole at LT...IF that happens I'll actually be excited as hell for our season despite our likely record! And, I've been looking at more of the late 1st/early 2nd type WRs and found some other potential gems for that 35th pick. Check out Rueben Randle. Good size and speed, not tons of reps, but a good blocker, solid team guy with a work ethic, and a great average per catch:

    Rueben Randle, LSU, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com

    With SEC defenses sucked in close to the line of scrimmage to defend an LSU rushing attack that averaged 202.5 yards a game on the ground, Randle took his game to another level in 2011. He earned All-SEC accolades in catching 50 passes for 908 yards and eight touchdowns, averaging a gaudy 18.1 yards per reception. He showed improved concentration as a route-runner and receiver and developed into a more reliable blocker, as well.
    Control the line, control the time, and give your D a chance to shine!!

    I promise you that Hill is not making it past 22. The kid ran a 4.39, is 6'4, leaps out the building and recorded a 25 yard per catch average in college. Floyd will be gone higher up and a run on WRs will happen in this draft. We luck out because there are so many good WRs in this draft. I hope we take two of them.
