Quick mock with trade and off season moves
I'm going to trade Tate, a fourth and next years fourth for an extra second round pick
1) Dion Jordan, OLB
2) Margus Hunt, DE
2) Da'Rick Rogers, WR
3) Marcus Wheaton, WR
3) DJ Swearinger,S
5) Kenjon Barner, RB
5) David Quessenberry, OL
6) Johnny Adams, CB
7) Manase Foketi, OL
7) Montori Hughes, NT (stealing this one from dopp)
Alright, I'm thinking let Walter walk. Time to get more talented younger players in here. I know da'rick has had problems but the talent is there. In think the team could use a little more edge anyways. I think Rogers and Wheaton would be an instant upgrade the talent in the wr corps.
I know a lot of people won't lime the first two picks, but both guys are athletic freaks with room to grow. I'm letting barwin go. Not re-signing him. He adds very little to the defense. Jordan is a guy that can play either side, can match up against te's in man to man coverage, can rush the passer, can line up to cover the slot in certain situations.
Hunt is an eventual Antonio replacement. He is a strong player to add into the rotation. A line with him and watt on it could be huge and could be an identity similar to the Williams wall or the two Jacksonville dt's from a few years ago.
Extend Antonio, Jjo, and whomever else you can to free up enough money to bring in Brian urlacher. Whatever you have to do to make it happen.
Barner adds another returner option, another rb with a change of pace and is showing that he can pick up blitzes. Bring back Forsett to compete for the number 2...
Bring Casey and gq back. Bring back clutts. Use them better. Let cody walk. Start earl. Bring in some cheap fa's for competition there along with the draft pick.
