2. Taylor and Jolly, I like the players but I worry that this, along with signing our own FA's, would cost to much. I know it's going to be an uncapped year due to the CBA expiring but that doesn't mean that owner want to just throw tons of money around for one year. There will be a CBA for the 2011 season and McNair doesn't strike me as the type of owner that wants to spend alot for one year when we are so far away from the Super Bowl.
As for your draft, I think Iupati at #20 is too high. If he goes in the 1st round then it'll most likely be at the very bottom of the 1st. I'd pick a skill position in the 1st round and then an OG or C in the 2nd where the great interior linemen are selected. I like a CB in the 2nd but I think we can do better. I'd go for Cox, Robinson, or Lindley in the 2nd round. If Robert Johnson is there in the 4th then we should run to the podium, I think he'll be gone in the 3rd, but it's possible. I don't understand the pick of Newhouse in the 6th since we picked up a FA OG and one in the 1st round. I like the Weston pick late if he's still available.
1. I would let Dunta and Pitts walk if it meant getting to sign Taylor and Jolly. I would try to re-sign Walter 3yrs at 9 mil seems about right and Brisiel for backup G money. By letting Dunta and Pitts walk you would actually be saving money on the cap by signing Taylor and Jolly. With the money saved thet probably could even sign M.Floyd or L.Moore in FA. Duntas 10 mil goes along way.
2. I stated my reasons above for drafting Iupati and my thoughts on Johnson and the S position in this draft. I have Spievey as the no.3 rated CB and hope he is available when the Texans pick in the 2nd. You have Cox Lindley etc rated higher. To each his own. Newhouse probably wont be there after the all star games and combine. He is amade for a G in the ZBS. I believe he will test out as one of the fastest OG's at the combine. He was a 3 year starter at a great program and a team leader. A great pick in the 6th rd. IMO
