    If LT stays I think our main focus should be on any of the following positions for the 16th pick: LB, OT, & DT. Taking into account the picks before us and who's likely to be available.
    Not really having any idea which way we'll end up going I look at it like this:
    If we drafted a:
    • LB-I think we would take Rey Maualuga, ILB, USC.
    • OT-I think we would take Michael Oher, OT, Mississippi
    • DT-Peria Jerry, DT, Mississippi (If J. Raji, DT, Boston College, magically happens to be there I would prefer him.)

    What do you guys think?

    Jerry might be there, but he's already 25. :unsure:

    Oher might be there, but I don't believe that he's worth a 16. :no:

    I'm making very few predictions until after the combine.

    Jerry's a DE like a Tyson Jackson; he's not a Nose Tackle

    I'm surprised everyone keeps mentioning LB @ 16. The Charers have drafted 2 LBs 1st round over the last 18 years. Nothing against Ray but the Bolts have found alot of good LBs over the years not at the top of the draft. Maybe Wilhem has dissapointed some people but if he's pushed out, who on the current roster fills that spot? I keep hearing the backups are more like Coop and not your coverage type.

    Its all about the peeps up front & S. We need to grab as many OL & DL guys as possible regardless of what happens w/ Olshansky, Goff, etc. I wouldn't mind if the Bolts resigned Super Human Strength but I'd say move him inside and find an impact DE. Let's worry about LB, RB, maybe WR, etc. after taking care of the obvious.
