Default Further update to MSN draft

Now they go all the way from round 1-round 3.

1)Reggie Bush RB - USC
2)Marcus McNiel OT - Auburn
3)Mark Anderson DE - Alabama
3)Taitusi Lutui OG - USC

If this happened, I'd be pretty disappointed in no defensive help on the first day. Also, I thought Latui wa a higher round pick, and was a big guy that didn't fit the system. Guess I got my facts wrong.

It wouldn't bother me 1 bit if we didn't draft a defensive player at all. We need allot of help this year on offense. Next year we can concentrate on our defensive needs. Let's fix 1 completely, not a little here and a little there...

Plus I beleive Eric Winston is a better OT than there pick...

If we draft a defensive player with a 2nd and/or 3rd rounder, I hope it is either a LB, FS, or CB. I would like to see what we have on the D-line before investing a fairly high pick there.

We went offense for two years, then defense in the third year. Ouyr defense broke a year later. I'd prefer infusing talent all around so they can mature and help all at the same time in the near future. Our offense has already had a lot of attention this offseason, but the defense only got Weaver and a new scheme.

So we get Bush (blah), two OL who don't fit our scheme, one of which has a spinal disease, and a tweener/situational pass rusher who doesn't really get to the QB...

Looks awesome...

I'm an idiot, there is a DE in the third, but I hadn't heard of him before. Also, I thought he had guys on the line now. I can see a second day pick on a DE for depth, but we may take 4 DE total out of camp next year, and 3 are already given.

Since we are planning to run a "Broncos-style" offensive line, there is no way we draft two 330+ pounders.

I didn't realize Charlie Casserly wrote stories for MSN sports.

These mocks are so ridiculous. I could put out a more well thought out mock. None of these experts take into account the schemes most of these teams use on Off & Def.

USC ran a form of the zone blocking scheme so Latui and co are experienced in that sort of offense so it is not totally far fetched.

Which is why I posted "I'm an idiot, there is a DE in the third, but I hadn't heard of him before." afterwards. I simply overlooked it because of the two misplaced offensive linemen.
