It's supposed to be a weak crop of TE's in the draft this year. That being said, I think Indy will let Marcus Pollard go. So there's one FA tight end, more than likely.

I am done with O-linemen in FA. Draft a OL high this year. If you think the weakness is inside then maybe someone like David Baas (C/G). http://www.nfldraftcountdown.com/pla...davidbaas.html
I have no idea what we are going to do about LT, but it's a problem.

The weak link on the DL is Walker, but he has a large contract. Marcus Spears seems like a great pick, but then we would pretty much just eat the Walker contract.

Too many problems. If we can trade down, get extra picks, and still get who we want, then I'm all for it.

I don't think a team can go into a draft and have decisions influenced by what player may be in the draft the following year. They have to take the best player for their team now.
thanks for the resources, man

as far as drafting philosophy goes, that was just me speaking as a fan
Loper is still better than Ferguson or Barron

if we drafted Dylan Gandy on DayTwo after getting Baas DayOne we could leave David at guard...

Walker is definitely not playing up to his contract, BUT he is exactly the kind of player that I can see responding very well to being challenged for his position by a rookie.

I'm surprised that he's just disappeared off the GBN 2 round draft. I thought Brooks was projected as a possible top 10 pick and that it's not uncommon for players who are in this position to change their minds and come out. Just a thought.

thats a good point Mistril48, possible oversight since he's still rated as the 13th overall best prospect regardless of team needs. the only thing holding him back evidently is Derrick Johnson the #1 rated linebacker in the draft. the money differential is sizeable between a top 10 pick & a top 20 pick, also Chowder is seriously considering coming out early.

Not to mention the fact that Glenn is gettin up there in years , I dont see passing Rolle either.
