    someone had to start the thread. The biggest benefit is that he is younger so he can be here a while and we will keep our 2 3rd round picks. Sharper is still trade bait. Baron will come alot cheaper than Pace too, maybe gives us money to go after Plaxico Burress or something.

    At this point in time, it looks like our cards are on the table...and we'll be picking LT with our #13.

    Barron will be better than Pace only after he retires.

    I'd take DD over Earl Campbell right now. Campbell needs a cane to walk.

    I don't think so. Barron may not be rated any higher than other players at 13. Casserly has already stated that he doesn't like the O-line prospects at the top of the draft and pursuing Pace may just give further proof. He did say that this is a deep draft at the second level player however.

    I Seriously doubt we pick a LT with the 13th. This Pace was a once in a million chance...and we had to go for it.

    Now we go back to drafting best player available. And Barron is NOT worth a 13th pick. The tackles this year just arent that talented. Gallery didnt even come in last year and light it up.

    I bet we go with a WR.

    I dont totally agree with that. PACE IS OVERRATED, seriously i will be sooo pissed if we get give up any 1st rounders for pace. build through the draft youngin, build through the draft...

    Pace is probably one of the top-10 players in the entire NFL. He isn't overrated.

    I don't think Barron is much better than Wand right now. If Wand is a project, Barron would be as well. Rookie tackles are often non-factors.

    True, but if Barron is there...and clearly the BPA, you still got to take him.

    the only reason i say us going after Baron over Pace is that we will have more picks and more money to improve the team elsewhere. its better for the overall team. although I wanted pace, now that we are not getting him i have to justify it.

    Thats just it... Barron wont be the best player available at 13. Now, if we stray from the best player available strategy... and just go with the we need a tackle strategey... then Barron has a chance.

    Otherwise its BPA as Casserly has stated several times.

    Yes, and I agree with you guys on this. I personally do not want us to take a tackle with our first...I think our #2 reciever position is a better filler with the top pick.
    But you never know come draft day what Casserly & company will do. And its obvious now that we were looking at left tackle for an upgrade.

    I say #2 WR as well. Although I just heard Barron had a huge workout at pro day. We will see...

    We have given up 161 sacks over 3 years. Improving the OL was ALWAYS obvious to me.

    :woot Barron will never be as good as Pace . Barron is not as powerful or agile as Pace . Thats why Pace was a 1st pick of the draft and Baron is middle of the 1st round .

    Although most of the D was good, the obvious choice in the 1st round would be DJ, but also id rather see one of the top CB's join the team before id like another receiver....what would CC do if Pac Man, Antrel Rolle, and Mike Williams are left on the board :confused:
