Default Star Lotulelei

If he fell to 14 and his heart checked out, would you give up a 1st/2nd and 5th for him.

I would, Ithink he's the next Ngata, a true impact player. The thought of Star and Watt playing on the DL for the next 10 yrs is worth not filling every need in a medicore draft.

You could still fill the WR/OL/LB holes in the 3/4th rds.

A draft like this would be awsome.

Rd. 1 Lotulelei
Rd. 3 Swope
Rd.3 Washington
Rd.4 Fragel

Faster than you could imagine. That would give us a DL similar to what made the Ravens so dominate over the last several years.

That is a good scenario. Our pass rush would increase dramatically and with the secondary we have, we could win some games with Run and Defense. Swope is a project so we will be hoping Jean finally comes through and we pick a WR vet in free agency to replace Walter.

I would also switch Rambo with Washington and have him take notes behind one of the greatest safeties to play the game. Very curious to see what happens tomorrow.

Swope is far from a project .... He's a complete reciever. He may have played a lot of slot but he stretched the field from that position. He has size and speed to burn - the only questionmark for me is the smallish hands.


I have to wonder if he would last until the bottom of the 3rd round.

If I knew I could get Swope , Washington & Fragel , I'd have to make that trade.

If Swope was gone .... what WR would you then target at that 3rd round spot ??

His hands are exactly why I put him as a project, I don't think he has starter quality route running to be an immediate impact starter in the NFL. But I think he would learn a lot lining up next to Andre in the slot, has potential to be our Amendola/Welker.

If Swope is gone I would like for them to take Kenny Stills from Oklahoma. Good possession receiver with good route running skills.

A 1st, 2nd, and 5th for Lotulelei? I'd run to the podium with his name. Hell yes we make that deal.

Default Re: Star Lotulelei

Lotulelei is my #1 overall player
Another guy is Bjourn Werner he is my #1 DE
And he is now a 2nd RD pick
If he is there at 27 it would be hard press for me to pass on him

I'm hoping for a trade back
I want Barrett Jones and Jaime Collins in RD2
Get Swope, Bostic, and Amerson in the 3rd hopefully
And then go get Brandon Williams and JC Tretter
Then go get Joseph Fauria and Mark Harrison
Pick up Breslin, and Juszczyk as UDFAs
