    Where do you get 3 2's & 2 3's? Pretty sure that we have 1 2 & the (damn remote) possibility of the 3's for Cro & Whitehurst becoming 2's. Maybe Cro's will due to playing time ....

    More likely we have 1 2 & 3 3's.

    No sweat. I haven't kept close track so wasn't sure if I had missed something.

    FWIW, I'd like to see Akeem Ayers in Charger blue & gold. I think he'd fit our scheme well.

    No contest for me.

    Ayers. He has strength to play inside but could move outside if necessary. If he stayed inside, he'd bring a pass-rushing presence to that position that we haven't had in awhile.

    1. Von Miller (OLB)
    2. Kyle Rudolph (TE)
    2. Rodney Hudson (C/G)
    3. Greg Little (WR)
    3. Derrick Locke (RB)

    Don't know past this. Of course this will change about 30 times over the next 4 months. This is in the case that we do lose VJack, I'd like to see us trade him for a high pick if we can't re-sign him.

    Robert Quinn (UNC) one of the top ranked OLBs, was diagnosed with a brain tumor way back in highschool.....I agree with you, I wouldn't spend a high pick on either guy.

    I'll throw out a second rounder you should keep your eyes on - Orlando Franklin G/T from Miami FL
    Think a better Vernon Carey, he's way too big to be a guard but has the perfect size for a RT with all the run blocking power.

    Here is my shot on what we should and hopefully will do...

    1- OLB Von Miller (Texas A&M) if available otherwise OLB Bruce Carter (N. Carolina)

    2- DE Adrian Clayborn (Iowa) if available otherwise, DE Cameron Heyward (Ohio State)

    2/3- FB/RB Stanley Havili (USC)

    3- ILB Casey Mathews (Oregon)

    3- OG John Moffitt (Wisconsin)

    6- This pick is a crap shoot...

    1. Marcel Dareus. If he's not available, then Allen Bailey.
    2. DeAndre McDaniel
    3. Terrence Frederick--if he declares.
    3. Rodney Young
    3. Stefan Wisniewski
    6. Greg McElroy

    I'm going off the assumption that we get a 2nd for Cromartie...


    1. Von Miller OLB
    2. Robert Sands S (If he declares)
    2. JJ Watt DE
    3. Jason Pinkston OT
    3. Weslye Saunders TE
    6. Derrick Lock RB
    7. Sione Fua DT

    Von Miller is an overrated prospect. One trick pony. Incredible closing speed but little else.

    Everytime I hear that I flash back to the Dumerville draft. The guy was a MONSTER pass rusher, set the record for most sacks in a single game, but was 5'11 250, only ran in the 4.7-4.8 range, and plummets to the 4th round where the Broncos land themselves an DPOY candidate.

    I want to see how Miller benches. Doom did 30 reps, he can clearly hold his own at the point of attack.

    i dont think Miller is overrated, i just dont think we need to use another #1 on a OLB. We need to give English some time. We have bigger needs, like DE, RT, S, WR

    Acee hinted a rumor that the Chargers are interested in Larry Fitzgerald. Could affect our draft in a massive way.

    He was just throwing out ideas, there's no legs to this rumor and he admitted to such when he was on XX 1090 this past week

    If you also remember Dumerville was not used very much or very effectively in a 4-3 but once he was moved to OLB in a 3-4, he became an absolute beast. But dumerville is a bit of an extreme in how short he was.

    I'd sooner think we should steal Lamar Woodley or Tamba Hali

    Not happining.

    I would love Woodley, but the Steelers will tag him before the let him walk. Also this ownership is far to cheap to open the pocketbook for a big name FA.

    I don't know if this is the right place to ask but are the hashes farther apart in college football? It just seems like quarterbacks have so much more space, and that is why mobility comes into play much more at that level. If so, why haven't they changed to NFL regulation because a system that favors quarterbacks with mobility doesn't translate to exceptional qbs in the league, which instead favors qb's with exceptional awareness, strength, and accurate arms. Even Cutler, among the most mobile quaterbacks, relies on his pocket presence far more than a college qb.

    In the secondary, doesn't this mean that the better safeties in college are simply smaller? They have more ground to cover over the middle so the system favors smaller, lighter, faster dbs. But the NFL is marked by hard-hitting safeties that also excel at ball and play recognition. It does seem that something so small can actually have such an impact. Unfortunately though, I think the NFL would more likely follow the college model in an attempt to take the emphasis off of hard-hitting, slower defensive players. I'm no safety hawk, but the way I see it - if you want to get rid of devastating hits, make the field bigger so the players get smaller.

    My latest Guesses

    18- Greg Jones ILB Michigan State
    Greg Jones, Michigan State, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
    Siler, Burnett, and Cooper's contracts are up, and we don't really know what we have it Butler. We have seen AJ draft guys in the first who don't start right away...English/B. Davis/Cason. Not saying Jones can't start, but he might.

    50- Niles Paul WR Nebraska
    Niles Paul, Nebraska, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
    Too much uncertainty at wide receiver. VJ? floyd and naanee? B. Davis is probably gone. Crayton is a FA as well. Niles Paul has good size, can block, AND is a good kick returner (sproles gone). He didn't have a dominant senior year, but that wasn't his fault, Nebraska couldn't pass. He'd probably be a first rounder if he'd been on a team that featured him more.

    60 (Jets)- Chimdi Chekwa, CB Ohio State
    Chimdi Chekwa, Ohio State, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
    As mentioned by many others before...Jammer isn't getting any younger. This guy has played alot of man defense. Almost went with Chris Rucker from Michigan State here.

    82- Tim Barnes, C, Missouri
    Tim Barnes, Missouri, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
    I keep putting a Center in the third, to back up Hardwick and be his eventual replacement. AJ rarely spends high draft picks on linemen, so this is just a "wish" pick on my part.

    85 (Seahawks)- Chris Carter OLB, Fresno State
    Chris Carter, Fresno State, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
    Did I hear anyone order a pass rusher? He'll fit in nicely in the English/Phillips/Applewhite rotation...and Tucker we hardly knew ya.

    6th rounder - Scott Tolzien, QB, Wisconsin
    Scott Tolzien, Wisconsin, NFL Draft - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
    He's not a superstar, but this is your "definition" of a backup quarterback in the NFL. He's smart, efficient, and doesn't turn the ball over. High completion percentage as well. And he'll probably be available here. I might need to look at some more small school guys. Another idea for a back up quarterback is Andy Dalton from TCU... But we'd have to pull the trigger on him in the 3rd to have a chance, and depending on combine workouts and such possibly the 2nd.

    I'm annoyed because I don't see my TJ Ward in this draft. None of the safteys excite me, the only one I'm high on right now is Sands from WVU, and I hate tall safteys.
