    okay..you have the 1st, 10th, 20th and 32nd...which players would you choose?

    1 - Joe Thomas - we need somebody to help solidify the offensive line for years to come...

    10 - LaRon Landry - easily the best saftey in the draft, and will be great for years to come...

    20 - Paul Posluszny - demeco needs some help and posluszny would be an upgrade at outside linebacker

    32 - Troy Smith - we need somebody for the future and this kid knows how to win!

    who would you choose if you had these 4 draft pics? I know this will like never happen, the teams entire cap would be in thier draft!

    1) Calvin Johnson/Adrian Peterson (haven't entirely made up my mind yet, Peterson is a bigger need, CJ may be a better prospect, leaning towards AP)
    10) LaRon Landry
    20) Amobi Okoye
    32) Rufus Alexander

    Unfortunately this would be difficult to fit under the salary cap, much less the rookie pool, not to mention to problem of acquiring these picks in the first place.

    Other then the first pick, I think you can make that bet on any of his other picks.

    Joe Thomas to solidify the o-line.

    Alan Branch to collapse the pocket and get more sacks for the DE's.

    Laron Landry to take the deep ball away.

    Adrian Peterson to give the ground game a huge boost.

    That's the problem, Alan Branch doesn't collapse the pocket. I'd much rather have Amobi Okoye for that.

    I disagree on QB being the #1 need and I don't think Levi Brown fits our system well at all. I'd also prefer Landry or even Griffin to Nelson, but him and Rufus would be nice.
