In a draft that is LB deep, I can't see us passing up on the top CB avaiable but do we go after a pass rusher or a runstuffer if that is the best available player?

My dream scenario would be to take Kenny Phillips at #10 and then get a starting MLB in the second round since it seems like this draft is going to be deep with them.

I'd take Ellis 1st a linebacker 2nd and a free agent at safety. If Ellis is gone i take Phillips 1st and try to get a top notch if any free agent DT

I really hope we pick James Larinaitis from Ohio State, I know we really need a corner but I am hoping we can address this in freeagency and be able to take him instead of a young corner. Alos I really not only love the kid because he plays like an absolute animal but also because his dad was the animal in the Legion of Doom on WCW. how awesome is that.

Either James Laurenaitis or Kenny Phillips. I went ahead and clicked Laurenaitis on the poll. I could go either way, or really any other defensive player that can help us on D. If our offensive pieces can come together under Drew Brees, we know what can happen. But we need some personnel changes on D IMMEDIATELY.

I think Laurenaitis has stated several times he'll be back next year.

I selected Ellis.

After watching yesterday's game, I was impressed. I think an excellent LB corps at USC is made even better by having Ellis up front.

I'd love to see Ellis there to make a 2nd round LB look even better in their rookie seasons.

Of course, that leaves us with holes in the secondary still, which I'd rather fill with free agency.

You'd be amazed how quickly holes in the secondary "fill" with a consistent pass rush from the LBs and DL. I like Ellis as well.

How about Rey Maualuga(sp?)

Depsite saying he'll stay, I think he's gonna come out.
He stated again last night several times that he is not coming out. I could understand not taking his word for it before the bowl game, but now I'm sure he is going to stay.

I know we've needed a top flight CB and S for over 10 years but we're just not getting pressure from our D-Line which in turn helps the secondary more than most would like to admit. If Ellis is there at # 10, I think we have to take him. Then we need to get the best S or CB in round 2. then go with LB in rounds 3 & 4.

There are so many holes in our defense that there is no way to realistically predict what we will do. We could pick up 3 defensive players in FA like Albert Hainsworth who I could see taking a chance on for at least one year, Asante Samuel who would have to be made a priority like we did with Drew Brees and just beat any offer with creative structuring, and then maybe Lance Briggs or Vilma depending on Vilma's injury. You may be able to put Marcus Trufant in there instead of Samuel but we could even opt for both. Something must be done to adress this area. Then we'd be looking to go DT, S and LB in the draft.
