    I'm going to probably lose all credibility on these boards for saying this, but here go's. This is a list of people we will not be drafting. ( i dont mean the qb's, but out of all the ppl we are rumored to be interested in, this is a list of who we wont pick.

    1. Alex Barron- CC knows better than to do this.

    2. Antrel Rolle- He will go higher than when we pick, and we will not trade up for him.

    3. David Baas- He won't be around in the second, and not pulling a babin for him.

    4. Mike Williams- Sorry to break any hearts but not happening.

    5. Cadillac Williams- Shocking? Maybe. Too much of what we already have.

    6. Braylon Edwards- We have bigger chances of getting him than BMW, but still not happening.

    7. Marcus Spears- For some reason i just don't see him donning a Texans uni come saturday.

    8. Carlos Rogers- Contradictory to reports, we won't get him.

    9. Erasmus James- Nope.

    9a. Dan Cody- I just don't think we are interested in him.

    10. Derrick Johnson- I know, I know i hate to see this happen, and although i want him drafted, it wont happen. Tough Break.

    10a. Khalif Barnes- I dont think we will get him, CC knows that to go with o-line in 3rd round.

    Now those are the people we probably won't get in the 1rst round. This leaves Demarcus Ware, David Pollack, Cedric Benson, Troy Williamson, Pac-Man Jones. Im telling you guys, it's going to be one of them. Pollack probably one of the least likliest out of them.

    The only two concensus first rounders that I think we will certainly not be taking are Aaron Rodgers and Alex Smith...You can't rule anybody out at this point...

    Yeah, we should sticky this prediction. Nobody is projecting Williams to go before Edwards at this point. Some teams are even reported to have him as the third WR on their board. Multiple teams are talking about moving up to get Edwards.

    i think benson may fall to us, and that will be too tempting to pass on, he would be perfect in the zone blocking scheme. and DD can be the change of pace, reciving back.

    i seriously dubt benson falls to us, i see us taking alex barron at #13. I mean, really do you think Benson can do much more damage than D.D if our o-line plays the same way they did the first half of last season ?

    ...and a guy who is just an average run blocker will improve our run blocking?

    Reread my post, I said he was an average run blocker, not a below average player, and yes I did watch one full FSU game last season and portions of others...He looked good in pass protection and looked good when he would pull, but when asked to hold his own in run blocking, the DE would brush and get to the RB...

    If Barron couldnt dominate college DE's in run blocking, what makes you think he will do anything but get owned in the pros? :thumbdown

    After getting PB it looks like you can add Pac Man, Miller, Jackson, and Rodgers to that list.

    Yes, I do expect Benson to do more damage than DD and that is not a knock on DD. CB is more of a bruising runner between the tackles and DD is more of a slasher & around the end. With both available, we would likely see a very interesting game plan and the recievers should be very excited with having even more attention taken from them to the RB. :thumbup

    Benson is NOT a NEED
    Pass rushing is a NEED

    Thats why I hope and pray its Demarcus Ware. this way we have a 3 OLB shuffle and you wont know where the rush is coming from.

    I agree with this. DD is a good running back. He isn't a great running back, but he is better than about half of the running backs starting in the league. All this being said, I would think this is the last time we will pick in the top half of the draft in a while. We have an opportunity to get an impact players somewhere.

    Personally, I'm taking a wait and see attitude. I know I may get flogged for this, but baseball is my favorite sport, so I pay a lot more attention to it than football. I do know what I think our weaknesses are, but I also tend to think along the lines of "best athlete available". Basically, I'm saying that I'm not a draftnik, so I don't know if Benson is the best athlete available that might reach that spot. I don't know if Troy Williamson will be better than Mark Clayton or Mike Williams. I also don't know if the plethora of defensive linemen and OLB will be impact players.

    I know that CC has made good moves for the most part, so I think he knows which one of these players will likely be better. I would just hate to see this team pick a player to fill a need if there is a better player on the board.

    Since when do we reach for NEED in the top of the draft?

    That said, I like Ware. Either of them would be a fine pick I think.
