Trade down with either Buff, NYJ or AZ. Im hoping that one of these teams bypass a QB in rd 1 and are willing to jump to 27 to grab the QB they want. They are numerous teams at the top of the 2nd that can use QBs, hopefully this will create a demand for our spot. It's a good thing we are picking before NE as we all know they love to trade back and add picks. Trading back would allow us to add an extra 3rd
Jamie Collins OLB & either Menelik Watson, Kyle Long or Terron Armstead at RT
Barwin's a FA and Im not sure we can retain him. Collins gives us an explosive edge rusher and he also has the ability to play inside (he was a former DB)
Given Newton's knee surgery, I move RT ahead of WR at this point. The right side of our OL was a weakness last year, I would be happy adding any of these RTs in rd 2
Ryan Swope WR
Brandon Williams NT
Aaron Dobson WR
Swope has terrific speed, is a good blocker in the running game, and he's a great runner after the catch
Brandon Williams is the big NT we've all wanted
Aaron Dobson is a bigger receiver that runs great routes and has great hands
David Queensbury OG
More help for the OL
David Bass OLB
Small school guy that has terrific pass rush skills, 56 TFLs and 39.5 sack during his career
Earl Wolf S
Demps and Keo SUCK!
Michael Williams TE
Big blocker that has pretty good hands
I like swope but he has a history of concussions. That worries me especially with Schaubs tendency to throw to receivers who have defenders with a bead on them. I wouldn't draft him before the fourth round.
Also would like to see an ILB in there somewhere. I really like Williams from Florida st. Late. Of course we could add depth there via free agency.
Other than that I like it.
