Re: Connor Barwin and the 2013 draft
I think we should do like the Seahawks, grab the craziest pass rusher available: Margus Hunt, DE in the first. I bet he doesn't even last that long. That guy is twice the freak Barwin is and his production would push Antonio Smith's bloated contract out the door at the same time. Mercilus gets a real shot to fulfill his potential, Reed resumes his normal duties at SAM, Money is better spent on keeping Quin around, players know they have to produce to get paid. All wins.
After that you target OL, maybe another RB and filling in depth up the middle of the defense that will also improve the special teams.
