    Polamalu is the best safety in the NFL. Ed Reed is good, but not as solid as Polamalu.

    Oh man that's tough...I'd have to go with Polamalu or James Harrison. I'd lean Polamalu though

    This is a cool game and it's really hard to choose. Obvious needs are on defense. Here's a few of my options:

    LT- Joe Thomas - One of the premiere LTs in the league and is only 24 years old. This would push Duane Brown inside to guard or to RT (winston to RT)... we'd have a dominate OL.

    DE- Justin Tuck -Tough for me to choose any pass rusher over any other. My reasoning for Tuck is that he's a true 4-3 DE which we need. I'm very skeptical to pick a 3-4 OLB to transition to a 4-3 end. Tuck is only 25 years old and had 12 sacks last season and 10 in 2007.

    LB - Patrick Willis - I'm a huge fan of Willis as most people on this board already know. I think he's the best 4-3 LB in the NFL and pairing him up with Demeco would be insane. Choose who you want inside and who you want outside.

    S - Troy Polamalu - I think adding a SS like him would be crazy. I also think it would mask our FS position until we could find a more suitable player. Imagine moving Dunta (which i've been against) to FS and having Polamalu at SS. We could take a CB this draft like Vontae Davis and have an absolutely great secondary.

    I think of all the players, I'd probably take Polamalu.

    I like Nnamdi Asomugha assuming we can keep Dunta too and take a chance on a DE in the draft.

    What?

    If it's only one player we can add, then I'd say we have to add somebody like Kevin Williams. Big, nasty, and most of all, all-pro. I think a player like him would transform the entire defense, from front to back, and elevate the play of everybody around him.

    I think Williams just does everything that great D-linemen do, and I really can't recall a time (Outside of this starcaps stuff that's going through Minnesota courts) where he has been a detriment to his team in any way.

    I think our entire offense is good enough where it is, they just need to work on the execution. The real albatross is the defense, and I'll take the big nasty guys on defense every day of the week.

    I'll take a more threatening backfield, and Troy is that for me, love his big plays, and when he isn't taking it back for 6, theres a good knowledge of the game, and a real nice speed.

    Although I feel he's the best I've seen, any other top level safety could be added really..

    A lot of good choices here but I'm going to go with someone who generally flies under the radar but is one of the best DL in the game - Haloti Ngata.

    6'4" 345lbs And a young 25 years old.

    He might not be as glamorous as a Polamalu, but his size and athleticism in the middle of our line would be unmatchable

    Thats exactly who I was thinking about when I first saw this thread. Hes a huge man in the middle there and gets great pressure and great at stopping the run

    We wouldn't win like that all the time... I mean, we'd always find a way to shoot ourselves in the foot.
