    Nothing too Earth-shattering in there, but still good to read

    "We could still use an impact player at linebacker and on the backend (but) we'd be hard-pressed to take a receiver or a running back in the first round."
    ***********************************
    Last time I checked we've got an "impact player at linebacker", so I'm guessing he means another one ?
    And I dunno what he means by "the backend" ? The defensive backfield ?
    BTW coach, you still need another edge-rusher across from Mario. Did you forget ?

    That kind of threw me too at first. I suspect it'd be like him saying "We need an impact pass rusher from the DE spot". I don't think he is discounting Demeco (or in this hypothetically Mario) but saying we need [another] one. another being implied.


    Good read, I love hearing things straight from the horses...err Coache's mouth! Very interesting about his comment on the WR and RB in the 1st. I like hearing that but hope it doesn't mean he'd reach for a D player. I'd rather him be thinking we should trade down and target a/the D player further down. Can't wait for the draft!

    C'mon man, at 15 who is there to put across from Mario? Did you forget to account for the situation? Sounds like LB/DB are the preferred choice at #15 but that certainly has little impact on whether or not they try for another DE later, besides the guy they just signed. Don't know if I would put him down as forgetting just yet.

    I'd rather reach for somebody like Alphonso Smith(if Jenkins isn't there) than take any Linebacker in this class not named Curry.

    Sounds like that is waht he is implying. I hope Vonte Davis is gone so we dont even have to consider him. I would take Darius Butler over him any day of the week. Yes even at 15.

    So lets see, Jenkins, Davis and Butler are the only CB's worthy of 15. There are absolutely no S's worth that high of a pick. Kubiack has made it known that Demeco isnt moving outside so any LB we draft would have to be an "impact player" on the outside. That leaves Curry, Mathews and possibly Barwin, English and Sintim? All of these LB's bring the added bonus of being able to put their hand down and russ the passer.

    Wonder who it will be? :thinking:

    Actually after rereading Kubiacks comments im confused alittle.

    "We could still use an impact player at linebacker and on the backend (but) we'd be hard-pressed to take a receiver or a running back in the first round."

    Bakend has to mean CB right? Plus why does he add "(but) we'd be hard-pressed to take a receiver or a running back in the first round."? Just seems like there was no reason to even add that remark. Oohhhh my head is spinning. I cant wait until the draft dammit.

    That comment confuses me as well. We don't need a 1st round WR or RB yet I can't tell what he is implying with that comment.

    Does it mean we're going to pull "a Duane Brown" and pick a player nobody had going in the 1st to fill our needs on :d:?

    I seriosuly think its going to be OLB, all I hope is we don't reach for a player like Tyrone McKenzie or whatever.

    The ONLY offensive player I can see us taking in the 1st round would be Maclin. He is the only guy that would be available that would be justified with the 15th pick. Oher is a possiblity, but then do we move Duane Brown to Guard? I don't really know how that would work out.

    Either Maclin or Oher on the Board are possiblilties, though probably not likely.
    But as always predicated on what other players remain on the Board for our pick and opportunities (if any) to move back, either of these 2 offensive players might represent the BPA at #15, even if not a need compared to other areas.

    I wouldn't mind if we "reach" for her in the 1st. She's got the impact we need on the backend, if that's what Kubiak is really referring too.

    I think she'd have the biggest impact on my front end.
