Well now we know we're not getting our 2nd rounder back I would assume that trading down in the first round might be a good move. If, however Eric Fisher is there at 15 I would assume we pick him instead and move on from bushrod. I do not think he will be there so I assume we trade back for a first, third and fifth round pick and we keep bushrod.

Of course seeing what we do with bushrod will make a huge difference in our draft strategy.

1st round pick - Xavier Rhodes - CB - FSU

3rd round pick - Bacarri Rambo - S - Georgia

3rd round pick - - Brandon Williams - DT - Missouri Southern

4th round pick - Brandon Jenkins - DE/OLB - Florida State

5th round pick - Seantrel Henderson - OT - Miami

5th round pick - Chad Bumphis - WR - Mississippi State

6th round pick - Micael Williams - TE - Alabama

I like that draft, but I think we will take an OLB in the first
I think our first rounder is up for grabs. Our secondary needs HELP. Rhodes is physical and a ball hawk. 3-4 pass rushers can be found later on and there's a damn good one that will slide into the fourth in Brandon Jenkins. Who knows. I wouldn't be upset with an OLB in the first. Greer is getting old and PRob is not a #1 corner.

Agreed! Especially, now that we know that we will definitely be without a 2nd round pick. I think we will either go with a pass rushing OLB or a NT. I think this also puts more pressure on Loomis to sign Bushrod.

Signing Bushrod or his replacement in free agency is priority #1 (after DC and OL Coach of course).

A guy I find very intriguing and wouldn't be surprised at all if we got him is Seantrel Williams. Was highly touted out of high school and is a run blocking mauler of a right tackle at 6'8 350. Reminds me of Orlando Franklin.

Not nearly as much as our front seven does.
I don't disagree that our front 7 needs work. However, I think the switch to the 3-4 is going to help out this dilemma by putting guys at a more natural position. Junior, Hicks, Jordan, and Bunkley will all benefit greatly. Perhaps Wilson, Lofton, and Hawthorne as well. I feel like Brandok Williams and Brandon Jenkins have just as much potential as guy of the same position that are being picked up in the first round. They're both studs and every year we see guys fall for various reasons. I think they are mid round gems. Xavier Rhodes I think might honestly be the best corner in the draft.

What would we get from trades if we traded all the way down to 30 from 15?

I could see us squeezing a 2nd instead of a third out of it. Obviously we would be at the back of the 2nd round likely. Maybe a 2nd and 4th?
