    Who is your #11 pick for us and why?

    I' going with Von Miller on this one. I ask think we need to find more big bodies pass rushers too.

    For the moment I am pulling for Prince Amukamara or Jimmy Smith.

    Love me some first round corners.

    Miller probably wont be there.

    Aldon Smith,Julio Jones,Justin Houston would be my choices in that order. Followed by Kerrigan and Taylor.

    If Miller's not there at 11 I'd do everythig I could to trade back to get a Kerrigan or Houston type guy. I can see a lot of late 1st and early 2nd players getting drafted earlier this year. Unless something changes, there's just not a lot of early 1st type players this year IMO. I might be wrong, and I'm just now getting heavily into the draft, but I don't see it at this point.

    Justin Houston. Most dynamic 34 pass rusher in this draft. Doesn't have the pure speed and athleticism of Von Miller but I think he can be a more complete player.

    Stephen Paea. A solid anchor in the middle and I think will be for years to come.

    If Fairley, Dareus, Patterson, Bowers, and AJ Green are all gone, I want Julio Jones. The situation is ideal for him, much like Dez Bryant's situation in Dallas in which he wasn't asked to be a #1. I think he would make a HUGE impact for us, I really do.

    I'm really scared of Von Miller. I don't trust his strength. He seems to be a pure speed guy, and I don't know if I want that type of guy as our premier OLB. I'd like to get a more all around player at that position. Barwin is our only viable OLB in the 3-4 right now and he's exactly the same type of player as Miller.

    Right now I see Julio Jones as a bigger difference maker than any of the other available players.

    At #11, realistic possibilities:
    Robert Quinn-OLB
    Brandon Harris-CB

    Wishful thinking possibilities:
    Prince Amukamara-CB
    Marcel Dareus-DT

    Unrealistic possibilities:
    Patrick Peterson-CB
    Nick Fairley-DT

    Agreed! Upend these guys and you have my draft order. I might go Houston over Quinn but like the rest. #11 has to give you a starter & I really do not see that coming as only Julio Jones will be available. Let's hope for a trade down. I do that every year anyway....

    Right now the top guy I think will be available is Justin Houston. I would also be ok with Aldon Smith or Julio Jones at 11, and a trade back for Taylor or Harris/Smith. I question drafting a DE in the first though even if someone like Watt is the top prospect left on the board. It seems like there are quite a few guys who could play DE in the 3-4 already on the roster (Williams, Smith, Mitchell & Okoye).

    I remember watching the Steelers, Ravens, Packers, etc. and thinking we need some bigger bodies on the defensive side of the ball. A big tank in the middle, some beastly edge rushers and some interior wrecking balls.

    I said Von Miller, which right now looks like it won't happen. I could see Quinn as that big outside LB type, but he seems a little too raw for the front office, also has off field issues. Cameron Jordan may fit also. I like the size and athleticism. I don't want to go secondary with this pick either.

    So my pick is...

    Von Quinn Jordan

    Julio Jones.

    Best talent available and would finally give us a threat at the #2 wideout spot.

    If Jones is available at 11 would you think about trading 11 to the rams for 14 and 78 because i doubt they would give us their 2nd rounder
