    Give me Knoshwan Moreno to go along with my current stud RB Steve Slaton and that will extend both their careers and see Ahman's role reduced or out the window.

    Or if he falls to us, and because you got to go with talent - Michael Crabtree. Andre may be looking for his way out soon and we can groom this kid.

    I'd draft a Center Alex Mack, Max Unger, or Jonathan Luigs. If we traded down we could probably get Alex Mack in the mid 20's of the 1st round. Max Unger and Jonathan Luigs will probably go in the 2-3 rounds. I'd also go for a Right Guard like Trevor Canfield of Cincinnati, Tyronne Green or Auburn, Byers of USC etc... Right now we're starting Myers who's a 6th round draft pick and Briesel who's an undrafted free agent. Both guys are under 300 lbs. and are getting pushed around by defensive tackles that vastly outweigh them. There's also the idea floating around of moving Duane Brown back to guard and taking one of the great tackles coming out this year. Michael Oher or Eugene Monroe would be my choices since both are better pass blockers than Andre Smith. We also need another RB, preferably a big bruiser type of back, though Moreno would be nice as well. Beanie Wells from Ohio and Rashard Jennings from Liberty are 2 that come to mind that would complete our thunder and lightning backfield. If I'm only drafting offense then a QB propect would be nice as well. Someone to hold a clip board and learn for at least one year maybe two and then become the starter. I wouldn't mind Josh Freeman or Graham Harrell. Later in the draft I'd take a big TE like Bear Pascoe from Fresno St. He's a big blocking TE that would be nice on 3rd downs and goal line plays.

    I'd flirt with Michael Oher, Duke Robinson, Max Unger and James Davis.

    I want to see the OL fixed so Schaub can stay upright but as good as our offense is... we're not going to win many games if our defense continues to give up 30+ points per game. I'm fully geared towards selecting some defensive playmakers in the 1st and 2nd rounds.

    Most of you said what I thought that you would say an RB or OL.
