It's still very early, but I started looking at Senior prospects, with an eye as to who just immediately jumped out. And with an eye toward need. To me, that mostly means defense. At the top of my list is Ohio State LB James Laurinaitis. He's going to be the first LB off the board and probably won't be available. Definitely a top 10 pick and probably a top 5. But right behind Laurinaitis is Wake Forest LB Aaron Curry, who could be there for us: 6'-1 3/4", 247#, est 40 - 4.61.... positives : very instinctive, naturally strong, rare strength at point of attack, excellent hand use, plays big, smart, good coverage awareness, strong tackler. Negatives : ?????? The top cornerback on my list is Oregon State's Brandon Hughes. I'd like to pick him up in the second, but I don't think he'll last. Positives I've read about this player : 5'-10", 180 #, est 40 - 4.5....high character, productive technician, can shuttle and mirror, solid tackler, supports the run hard, plays bigger than his size, best in zone scheme. Negatives : needs to get bigger. Western Michigan CB Londen Fryar is right behind Hughs. He is the son of Irving Fryar and seems to have all the qualities of a top notch CB. His big negative seems to be a swelled head and humongous ego. No safeties have really caught my eye as worthy of our top 2 picks. No DT's have jumped out at me. At DE, Texas' Brian Orakpo. His big negative seems to be an inconsistent motor. There you have it. 5 defensive players. On offense, I didn't look at QB, RB ( I'm satisfied with Slaton - we have other needs ), TE or receiver. I didn't look at Tackle, I figure we are set there, for now, and we have more pressing needs. I haven't seen any OG's I really like. But I have noticed how our OC gets manhandled and pushed back. This is, IMO, our most serious need on the OL. There's two I like, California's Alex Mack and Arkansas' Jonathan Luigs. If one of these were available in the 3rd, I'd have to consider real hard in investing this pick on this position.
