2nd Rounder, Yes. I want one of these guys in the second.

S - Kenny Philips
DT -K. Balmer
CB - Flowers
LB - Conner
LB - Lofton
LB - Mayo
WR - M Manningham
OT- Sam Baker
CB - Antonie Cason
DT - T. Laws
DT - P. Sims
TE - Fred Davis
CB - T. Porter
RB - Johnathan Stewart (I'm borderline, but a Top 20 pick with no health concerns)

I would be happy with anyone of these upgrades, but we never get who I want :)

Balmer in the second round would be a great pick

I know why a lot of you guys are down on Balmer, but I don't think he's a Sullivan clone by a long shot. For one, have you ever seen a picture of this guy? They look nothing alike and he looks to keep up with his body, something Sully never tried to do.

Second, instead of saying the guy only made an impact his last year, look into a little deeper.....he had a new coaching staff with Butch Davis come in before his senior season. Did any of you ever think that a change in philosophy is what allowed him to become a more dominant threat?

10 is definately too high for him, but, IMO, he gets dogged for idiotic reasons and if anyone did research on the guy can form an educated opinion on the guy instead of just reading........"underachiever".....once or twice and labeling him with one of the biggest busts in recent memory.

Well you can scratch off Mayo, Cason, Phillips and maybe Flowers. They will all be gone by the time we pick

You can probably add Laws to that list of goners before #40 too.

I wanted to add TE Dustin Keller to my 2nd round list, but didn't know enough about him.

I agree with both of you that those guys MIGHT be gone, but who knows.

If we move down from 10 then he could very well be the pick.

The guy has some negatives but they are no greater then the negatives of the other guys in the draft.

I know for a fact Phillips won't make it into the second round.

Well put. I've been defending him for a long time. Most people on here have never seen him play, yet they too around "Sully" and "bad motor" and all that bollocks, without knowing anything about him... well, maybe Loomis and Payton might, oh I don't know, be trying to find out about him themselves???? YA THINK?
