    Here's my scenario. We will trade down to maybe 16 to GreenBay so they can have a shot at Peterson or a top DB. We take their 2nd rounder in the deal and draft Gaither at 16. We can still address the defense with our 2nd rounders and get some pretty good players.

    Here's my reasoning to draft Gaither at 16. He is a physical freak at 6'8 or 6'9 330lbs with quick feet and long arms. Now, he is very raw, but his upside is out of this world and he may be the best OL in the long run and would be a high 1st next year anyway. It's a very weak OL draft overall as well. Also, we drafted Mario Williams with the #1 pick last year, who was also big, raw, and had great physical tools. If we can draft Mario Williams at #1, we can draft Gaither at #16.

    1-Gaither OT
    2-Best CB Available
    2-Tony Hunt RB
    3-Brown DT
    4-Johnson FS
    5-Bishop SLB

    I'm hoping we can sign a CB in FA, then we wouldn't draft a CB in the 2nd, and we can move all those picks up a round to make sure we get the players we want and draft someone in the 5th for depth.

    Do you really think T. Hunt will last until the 3rd round?

    yes gaither is eligible. already declared i think, or an inside source has said hes going to at least.

    my only concern is that he shoots up draft boards and we'll be forced to take him at 8.

    Why would we be forced to take anyone at a certain pick? They will take the best player that they think is available at each pick, and it doesn't seem like they are placing high enough importance on OLinemen to take one in the 1st round, but obviously at this point we don't know.
