Brandon Meriweather S
LaMarr Woodley DE
I've been watching these guys closer and some of them for years now.. Willis is a very very instinctive LB who play sideline to sideline with a very nasty demeanor and could turn out to be a steal IF by some miracle he drops out of the top 15.

Me being a fan of The U, I've been watching him since he and Maurice Sykes took over for Reed and Taylor. While he doesnt have burning speed he's a Great Tackler and Covers extremely well I would love to see this guy fall into our laps in the first round. In my opinion having watched Leon Hall, Landry and Merriweather, I think Merriweather is a better tackler and just as well in coverage as the other two.. so there's a possiblilty he could end up being the best DB in the draft barring injuries.

Lamar Woodley is not the sack artist of lets say a Super Mario or a Elvis Dumervil but he is a terror in the back field, he has a great motor and always seems to be in the backfield in somebody's face.. he could drop from the first round tho.. unless he comes with a great senior campaign.

Another name that REALLY should be added to that list is Marshawn Lynch. And I'm going to talk more about him in an up and coming post..

Marshawn Lynch looks pretty good. At 5'11 223, he is the ideal NFL size too.

You might wanna add in Sidney Rice.

I for one hope we draft Laron Landry if we have a pick in the teens or twentys. The guy is explosive and can change a game in many ways.

Brandon and Sykes never played together, as it was Maurice and Sean in '02-03. none the less he is a great player and i think he will be right up there with laron come next april. i see him this year playing a role similar to mike huff and playing as a corner a few times with the depth at saftey miami has with phillips and reddick and there lack of experience at cb. if he does that well he could shot up the boards because of his versatility.

pat willis is a beast and can fly. if we didn't get demeco last year i would take a good look at pat. granted i haven't watch a whole lot of penn st. games but i think pat is just a good as posluszny but doesn't get the same hype.

Michael Bush is an amazing athlete.... he would be an awesome asset if he were to fall to us in the next draft.

Is a this kicker seriously being looked at as a first round pick? I would think the earliest a kicker goes is late second like in the 2005 draft and that didn't even work out the greatest for the Jets.

If DD doesnt show that he can stay healthy, than we will be picking in the top 10 again. And if we can trade up and get AP than Im all for it, but if DD gets his act together, I think that we hace to look for help in the secondary by taking either Leon Hall or LaRon Landry, the only problem is that Landry is a FS and we need a SS, because I think that CC is bound for a standout year. But anyway we havent even played a preseason game so dont take what I say too seriously.

We need a FS, Brown and Earl are BOTH SS's. Earl is the better player by the way, and that will show this year.

What about Ramonce Taylor....I don't know if the Texans would take a guy with "questionable character", but I think he would be a steal...especially if we could get him in the third or fourth....all though he probably won't fall that low with teams like the portland Bengals on the clock....
