Default how about this scenario...

trade back and receive a 2nd rounder

1 Revis/Houston/Hall CB
2 Victor Abiamiri DE
3 Jason Hill WR
4 Paul Soliai DT
5 Roderick Rogers FS
6 Gabe Hall OT
7 Justin Medlock K

We draft a good CB, which allows us to focus on other positions other than the secondary with our other picks.

Abiamiri is a great athlete who can really get to the passer. Still needs to work on his technique, but we drafted Mario #1 and he was a bit raw as well.

Hill is big and fast and should be a nice #2. Courtney Taylor is another option if Hill is gone, or we could go with FS Michael Johnson in the 3rd and take a WR in the 5th like Laurent Robinson.

Paul Soliai gives us a big space eater that we don't have. Should help plug holes and take up blockers.

Rogers is an underrated safety with good ballskills and his timed speed and instincts are fine as well.

Last 2 picks are projects.

I'm not a big fan of Abiamiri, don't really know why. I also prefer Kareem Brown to Solali. I don't see much point in taking an OT that late, I think we need to focus on starters if we are going OT, and those are first round guys. If we are going O-line late, we need to look for a center like Mozes or a OG like Studdard. Medlock has impressed me a lot and I wouldn't list him as a project.

i think abiamiri is a kiwanuka type guy. good overall athlete but not much technique. i liked brown too, but we have so many smaller type DLineman and no real big space clogger. im not ready to give up on travis johnson yet either.

you're right about the 6th round pick, but i honestly didnt know who to pick there. if dedrick harrington fell that far, id go for him.

i like abiamiri but i would absolutely love it if anthony spencer fell to us in that scenario in the second round...kinda even when comparing him to tim crowder...not sure which one i like better...i think victor is the better athlete but crowder i think is more polished as far as DE is concerned
