    With the 1st pick in the Second Round and if he is there which I think he will, what does everyone think about Mercedes Lewis with that pick? Weighing in at 6'-6" 256, he didn't have a wonderful 40's time but was outstanding in everything else. I wouldn't mind seeing him here. Give me your take.

    Lets see who gets cut, the FA market will be flodded with players, If we get a good DE in FA then I like Lewis in the 2nd.

    Like stated above, only if we trade down and draft Ferguson do I see us taking Lewis in the second, but yeah I want Pope too.

    He ran a ~4.8, not a 4.6.

    I'd be very interested in him (assuming that Pope is gone at this point) only if we traded down and picked up D'Brick. We need to go OT in round 1 or 2.

    He is my #2 rated TE.

    I take him in a heartbeat, assuming a few things:

    Ko Simpson did not make it to #33
    We take D'brick in the first
    We don't sign a FA center, and Mangold is there.


    If everything fits, I take him. If we don't take D'brick in the first, we must go OT in the second. If Simpson is there at #33, we take him before Lewis. Same with Mangold.

    im conviced we are taking Winston with the 1st in the 2nd wich would be a very good pick.

    Yes, Mercedes Lewis ran a slow 4.84. We could probably get him in the 3rd round now.

    No. I would put money on it that he goes before the third.

    Why?

    That notion has to be a joke.

    Byrd is always injured, lacks top size, struggles to block well, has a lot of injury problems, and is not that much faster.

    Lewis is 6'5ish. He can stretch the field and he can block well. He has a frame to add bulk, and improved a lot as a blocker this year. He will have an immediate impact for some team this year.

    Byrd will be lucky if he is 2nd string.

    I'd say #33 is too early but he will be gone will before #65. Somewhere in the 45-55 range.

    TE in the 3rd if we don't pick one up in FA. If we do pick one up then look to the 5th or 6th for a TE.

    1st rd anyones guess
    2nd rd OL
    3rd DE
    3rd OL/WR/RB/QB/ (from this point on gets shady due to FA)
    4th DB/S
    5th TE or DE
    6th DE or TE
    7th LB

    I wouldn't mind Byrd in the 3rd if he is available.

    I think Byrd is climbing though, possibly even eclipsing/tying Lewis as TE #3 in the late-1st/early-2nd position though.
