1 Brian Orakpo (can play OLB in 3-4) Texas
2 *Everette Brown (OLB) Florida State
3 Tyson Jackson LSU
4 *Aaron Maybin (OLB) Penn State
5 Larry English (OLB) Northern Illinois
****************************************
Of his top college DEs prospects, only one is clearly a 4-3 guy.
I dunno, but just another reason that illustrates IMO that the front 7 of the
3-4 is less difficult to stock with personnel than the 4-3.

We should just trade our number 1 for Peppers. He is better than any of the De's in this draft.

After looking at how things should fall, I dont like any of our options around 15. I'm not a huge fan of the later 1st round prospects, so why not make potentially one of the best bookend combo's ever?

Because we wants to be a 3-4 OLB, he'll cost an ass-load, and he's nearly 30.

The good thing about Peppers is you don't need to trade a thing to get him as he is a free agent, but Peppers is probably going to cost too much in an open market with a no-cap 2010.

but on your point, I wouldn't mind trading our 1st Round pick for the right defensive veteran as the defensive talent on the DL and DB is pretty light on first round talent. Lots of good OL talent though..especially at OT.

Hopefully Ray or Raji are there at #15. I would be down with either of those picks.

I believe that we should try one of two options. They are as follows

1.You trade for Julius Peppers straight up with the Panthers. Don't know what you would have to give up besides the 1st round pick but it is worth it. Helps D-Line and D-Fence as whole. Here are some quotes from Peppers and/or his agent.
Link. http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...eref=fannation

He states: "He certainly feels that he can excel and thrive in a 3-4 defense," Carey said. "He is also open to just another system in general that will allow him to maximize his athletic abilities."

He could do this with Mario on the other side plus our new agressive, attack style defensive system.

2. If he really desides that he just doesn't want to come to Houston or really does want to try to be a 3-4 OLB then we could possible pull off a 3 team deal with Car. and GB. In this deal GB would get Peppers and we would get Aaron Kampman who most would agree is not a good fit in a 3-4 system. Again what we would have to give up is unknown besides our 1st round pick.

Hey just an idea let me know what you guys think.

You CANNOT trade for Peppers unless he gets tagged by the Panthers, and since it would cost the franchise 17 million to tag Peppers it isn't likely to happen.

I say the 1st if they franchise him. If a FA, I would be ok with then trading up, since that takes a huge need off of your board. Curry would be my target.
