1. Sean Weatherspoon, OLB, Missouri

3. D'Anthony Smith, DT, Louisiana Tech
4. Christian Anthony, DE, Grambling
5. Thomas Welch, T, Vandebilt
6. Chris Hall, C, Texas
7. Jeff Byers, G, USC

With both Greer and Porter being so young, why would we draft a CB in the second rd??? Plus I think DE will be the 1st rd pick with LB maybe getting 2nd, but I think Payton is gonna get a few more offensive picks in the early rounds this year

Prepare to be flamed... Most people around here are gonna give you grief for talking next year's draft when we're 2-0, but I'm a draft-geek and I love it.

I love the 'Spoon pick in the 1st, but I don't think he'll make it to our pick... Dude's a BEAST!

If Jenkins moves to FS, what becomes of Usama? You think Young could move to SS if Harper leaves via FA after this season?

Anyways, I'm gonna throw you some rep points for the super-early draft talk. :9:

OLB and DE are the 2 target areas they will look to upgrade in the offseason

People still hatn on Shanle. Come on man.
At some point, Fujita will need to be replaced. Why not draft someone with some serious upside if they're available and get them ready. If they beat Fujita or Shanle for the spot then sweet. If not, they'll get better.

I'd be interested in drafting a OLB/DE hybrid and making our own D-Ware type of player.

I hate talking about next season now but I just saw Kearse is a free agent next year, I could see Gregg bringing him.

I love the draft and Weatherspoon would be awesome. I agree in that unless Greer or Porter completely bombs, we likely won't draft a CB early. FS of the future yes, but probably not CB. I think DE and NT are the most likely to be addressed after OLB in the first round (as it seems there are a number of capable OLBs to take in the first).

I doubt Carlos Dunlap DE for the Gators could fall to us, but if he does...I would love to have him in the B & G.

Eric Berry is a pipe dream at this point, but what a game breaker he would be. He was all over the field against Florida last week. He will be the next Polly Polamalu / Ed Reed. If we had to pull a Ricky Williams and trade the entire draft class, I wouldn't be disappointed if we did so for Eric Berry.

yeah eric berry, taylor mays, terrance cody, and carlos dunlap are probably out of the equation for us if we make the playoffs this year.

im thinking that we pick up an OLB and DT and free agency and pursue the heck out of bruce gradkowski (the pats' kicker) in the offseason.


at DT kendrick gholston and jarvis green will be available and cheap. and we could let cassilas develop behind fujita and maybe address the other OLB with rocky mcintosh or thomas howard to back up ***cough*** shanle.


i'd focus on DE, SS, TE, C, and RB in 2010.


George selvie or corey wootton would be great first round pass rushers for us at RDE and will likely be available through picks 20-25.

derrick morgan or Ricky sapp of clemson could be good additions who may replace grant at LDE as well in rounds 2-3.


Germaine Gresham could be our Tightend in round TWO coming off of the knee injury because next year he may be a red-shirt rookie like meachem if he cant go by training camp.


in 2-3 it would help if we looked at a ball-hawking SS prospect like Kam Chancellor from V-tech and Barry Church from toledo as well.

it would be great to see us pick up a good center in round 3 or four to compete next year as well or another FS prospect to compete with usama young like Reshad Jones of georgia who is alot like Chip vaughn but with better hands who may last til rounds 2-3.

The last time I checked, Fujita still plays OLB

Yea, Your right it was a knee jerk reaction and I do agree that some more elite talent at all linebacker positions is needed. I was just harassing.:ezbill:

Good point on Kearse, I never even thought about him. Sign him for a one or two year deal and cut Grant, save 7 million in the process.

I still think we draft a DE in one of the first two rounds, develop him behind Kearse for the first year.

Also we need to add another OLB either through the draft or FA, probably SLB. We have so many options at WLB with Shanle, Dunbar, Casillas, and Arnoux. Not saying we will pass up on a better WLB prospect for an inferior SLB but if all things are equal.

I can see us moving Hargrove full time to the 3-tech spot and form a 3 man rotation at DT between Ellis, Hargrove, and Clancy. I think we will probably add another DT into that group since Clancy is getting older and we should start grooming a DT under him soon.

The TE and RB position is one of the most overrated positions on this team in terms of draft predictions. As long as Shockey can stay healthy we won't invest a high pick on a TE with so many other needs and don't forget we just traded for Dave Thomas who is looking like a legit backup tight end. I can see us adding a blocking tight end in either FA or later in the draft. As for the RB position Bell has been having a ton of success and it seems like everyone wants to replace him. Payton loves Bell and I think this coaching staff will be more than happy with a RB corp of Bush-Bell-Thomas.
