    Walterfootball has us taking Sam Montgomery, OG Dallas Thomas, and S Tony Jefferson in the first 3 rounds in the latest mock draft...

    That would be a solid draft...Tony Jefferson(or any of the top safeties) in the 3rd round would be a great pick.

    I was just looking at that. Interesting he has us taking Jefferson while Lester is still available and last week he had us taking Lester.

    I was watching the LSU vs A&M game last weekend was impressed and concerned at the same time with the LSU DE's. The talent and physical traits are obvious but they let that QB escape too many times and I didn't see a whole lot of sacks. They are definitely pass rushers they just couldn't get their hands on the QB.

    Yea I agree. We have other needs and such but we need impact players period... Regardless of need... And while McCarthy is an impact play for us.... How many games a year is he gonna hold us back? He's the perfect backup tho...lol can come in 3/4 games outta the year or even be a rotational star....lol dude is glass tho and it really hurts us.

    Let's wait until McCarthy gets healthy before we consider him obsolete...If he gets hurt again after he returns then yes, we should definitely consider drafting a middle linebacker or picking one up in free agency...

    I retract my previous statement...I didn't realize they had switched to a 43 this season...Looking at his stats(8.5 sacks. 52 tackles, 15 tfl) proves that he can actually be very effective as a 43 d-end...my mistake...

    If we're going to get a d-end, I think we have to get one in the 1st... Mingo, Montgomery, Werner, Okafor, Lemonier, Jeffcoat, and Moore are all projected to go in the first round and we can't afford to miss out on one of them IMO.

    Only way I see us passing on one of these D-ends is if Star Lotulelei or Jon Hankins fall to us.

    OR if McCarthy proves he is unable to stay healthy and we go with Manti Teo..

    Even with McCarthy's injury issues I can't see us going MLB in the 1st round. We're going at least 7-9 this year so we'll be lucky to get one of those top DE's as it is. We do need some depth behind our 3 young guys, I think free agency might address that problem.
