    What does everyone think of this guy. He has a benefit over other potential 3-4 DE's in that he actually played in a 3-4 in college and was pretty good. He is projected as a 2nd or 3rd rounder. If we can get a 2nd for Sproles, I would be happy with getting him and Cam Thomas in the 2nd round along with someone like Mathews in the 1st.

    Cam Thomas sucks.

    I love Tyson and would take him @ 40 if we do not draft Price or Odrick @ 28.

    In regards to your little scenario id rather see 28) Mathews 40) Tyson 91) Troup,... Troup will be a better NT that Thomas, you wait and see. Cam Thomas played decent in the Sr. Bowl and all of a sudden he's 2nd round material.

    the d-linman I kind of liked moved up supposedly from the 4th round to round 2. Joesph linval. BAsically cody but with better measurables. Big kid. So things are changing from months ago big time.

    Were just gonna have to see who is there when we pick. I hope we have a trick via a trade possilble to get another player in this draft so we can get 2 2nd rounders or a 1st rounder so we can grab another stud early in this draft.

    I like Linval as well. We will probably have to offer Sproles to get a another 2nd rounder. We aren't going to keep him for the kind of money he's liable to get elsewhere, but we can get some real value for him here. If it doesn't happen, then we have him for another run at the Lombardi.

    He might not be here in a couple years if we don't sign him to a long-term deal (and he wants a lot of money). Plus he's being payed 7mil just to be a third down guy and a KR... I'm not saying that he sucks but we could get similar production from some fresh legs and for a lot cheaper. But if he does realize he won't get paid Michael Turner type money and signs a longterm deal for say around 3mil a year for 5 years, then that's a whole new story

    I agree on Troup over Thomas but there are like 4 guys we need to grab one or two UDFA also.

    As far as Alualu, I like Joseph better. He is bigger, and he could be our 3rd down NT if we choose to get back to a 3-3-5 nickle type of alignment we used to use when Wade was here.

    Thats fine. I don't know a ton about the guys. I just know they are both projected to be 2nd/3rd rounders

    Because he is gone after this season and I don't want to let him leave and get nothing for him. He has ridiculous cantract demands, and I want to get value for him now rather than a crappy comp pick in 2 years
