    Dunlap is another big hit away from maybe being done. It made rookie WR Ryan Swopes retire before his career began. TE John Carlson may have to retire after three concussions lately. Dunlap is signed for one more year anyways. I'd take a LT and not think twice if one drops to us as long as it isn't Lewan.

    Revis, Haden are 5'11", and Grimmes is 5'10"

    I don't know if there is a real correlation between height and production when it comes to CB. Yes there are some that are taller (Sherman and Peterson), but there are plenty that are under 6'

    I was backing you up. Sorry. Cason sucked and was over 6', Cromartie refused to even try to tackle and he was over 6', and there are plenty of good cb's under 6'. So I don't care if a CB is over 6' or not, if they are good

    I'd say because he isn't really a good prospect at LT in the NFL and we don't need a RT.

    Well we could move Fluker to RG, huge upgrade over Clary. Something I'm sure will be considered.

    Why would that be considered? Fluker is a better OT than Lewan. I don't think they have any plans to move Fluker to OG.

    I'm not a big Lewan fan either, thankfully there is more than one OT in this draft right?

    Also I'm not saying they have plans for anything, but it's an interesting backup plan to consider should the draft go sideways for us and we're stuck staring at no perfect options.

    I have a hard time trusting a corner out of the Big Ten where they aren't exactly challenged by any real passers. I know that can be a flawed reason and great corners have come out of the B1G but I just know in the Pac-12 corners get tested and in the SEC they have raw talent.

    That's my opinion though.
