    Well there are a lot of guys I would like to see here, but some guys I definitely have my eye on...

    DE Greg Hardy
    OLB Brian Orakpo
    OLB Jason Worilds
    C Alex Mack
    OG Wade Smith
    CB Alterraun Verner
    CB Sam Shields
    CB Brent Grimes
    CB Aquib Talib
    CB D Rodgers-Cromartie
    CB Vontae Davis
    RB Anthony Dixon
    NT Paul Soliai
    NT Terrance Cody
    WR Kenny Britt (for near league minimum)
    KR Devin Hester

    There are a lot of interesting FA CBs, but this is also the deepest CB draft in YEARS, so unless the deal is a bargain I don't expect we'll sign any of those guys.

    Here are mine.. All guys I think would fit in our scheme on both sides of the ball..

    RB - Joique Bell, Donald Brown -- Though I think we can find a RB in a very deep draft class.
    TE - Brandon Pettigrew, Michael Hoomanawanui
    WR - Doug Baldwin, Julian Edelman, Ted Ginn, Emmanuel Sanders
    OT - Anthony Collins
    OG - Travelle Wharton, Geoff Schwartz, Joe Reitz, Mike McGlynn
    C - Alex Mack, Evan Dietrich-Smith, Brian De La Puente, JD Walton

    DE - Arthur Jones, Clinton McDonald, Fili Moala
    NT - Antonio Johnson, Al Woods
    OLB - Eversen Griffen, O'Brien Schofield, Jason Worilds
    ILB - Vincent Rey, Keith Rivers, Joe Mays, Wesley Woodyard, Darryl Sharpton -- Even if Butler re-signs, still need a backup that can step in a play and also play special teams.
    CB - Vontae Davis, Will Blackmon, Walter Thurmond, Tarrell Brown, Corey Graham, Eric Wright, Sam Shields
    S - James Ihedigbo, Rafael Bush, Michael Mitchell, Ryan Mundy

    I want CB Brent Grimes, currently with Miami. (go get him, Telesco! ;))

    Aquib Talib gets alot of press, but this is the 2nd year in a row that he could not play in most of the conference championship game, dooming his teams's defense and seeing them shredded in his absence.

    Telesco wants to build a young nucleus here. Grimes was the best CB in 2011 and 2013. He's going to price himself out considering he's 30 and this will be his last contract signed.

    Talib is too much trouble for me. I feel he won't be motivated in our locker room and with a big contract.

    ....and this is a ridiculously deep CB class, hell it looks almost certain that Bradley Roby (a potential top 10 pick last year) will be going in round 2 this year.

    Our money would be wiser spent elsewhere, like O-line, or OLB.

    I'd like to see most of the money spent on offense. Specifically C, if Hardwick retires and WR. I would love 2 more WR's in FA, and at least 2 OL, doesn't matter where they play. We need 2 starters on offense in FA.

    I'd love to trade back and take Roby. Don't even mind trading out of the 1st, but I think he runs a 4.35-4.40 which will get him in the 1st round.

    Yeah, this makes no sense. I'd certainly like to see an upgrade at receiver and along the OL, but to look at the two units and decide we need to focus on improving the offense? What team have you been watching?

    That way we can focus on defense in the draft?

    Haven't we tried to improve the defense in FA and it hasn't quite worked out past few years?

    Rather use FA to supplement the draft, like Telesco said. You saw how we did that this year with guys like Dunlap, Woodhead, Ohrenberger, Rinehart, etc.

    Well, you left that part out in your other post, about focusing on defense in the draft. But I'm still not sure why it makes more sense to draft defense and focus on offense in free agency. Just because Cox didn't work out this year doesn't mean that we should give up on looking for veterans that might help the defense.

    I said spend most of the money on offense. Not entirely neglect the defense. We need depth on defense and we need to get healthy. This is what I have on the defensive side of the ball, we don't need as many starters as we do on O, we need depth more than anything.

    LDE - Reyes, Guy
    NT - Lissemore, Jerideau -- Draft need, also sign a veteran, BJ will head to the PS.
    RDE - Liuget, Geathers
    LOLB - Ingram, Johnson
    LILB - Butler, Gachkar
    RILB - Te'o, Bird, Manning -- Need a veteran ILB here to push Te'o, and that can step up.
    ROLB - Freeney, T. Williams, Keiser -- Draft need
    LCB - Cox -- Draft need
    RCB - Wright, C. Butler, Cromartie, Jones
    NCB - Gilchrist, S. Williams
    SS - Taylor, Addae
    FS - Weddle, Stuckey
