    I have the same philosophy but with different positions.

    WR, OL, and CB.

    Because it typically takes WR/CBs a longer time to adjust, and OL because you have 5 on the field at a time. Always a need there.

    Agreed with QB, the return you can get on one that looks like a franchise QB is outstanding. Would be great to pick a guy 3-7 and trade him for multiple higher picks later on.

    I go with DL over OL because once you get your starters on the offensive line those guys are in for essentially the whole game. Conversely, you rotate guys on the defensive line.

    Definitely a pro of drafting OL every year is gaining that swing guy who can play multiple positions though. That guy is invaluable since you can activate another player while he can fill in for two slots on game day.

    I wouldn't mind dropping back to pickup an additional 3rd. Through my eyes we need four things in the draft.

    #1: Day 1 ready RT, who in 1-2 years can make the switch to LT.
    #2: Legit pass-rushing DE
    #3: Potential starting MLB
    #4: Potential sharing RB to pair w/ Greene

    Pretty hard to get those 4 things with no 3rd. We need to trade back. For example, last year STL traded a 1st (22nd) & 7th in '15 to Atlanta in exchange for ATLs 1st (30th), 3rd (92nd), and 6th (198th). That's something we should look at. Hopefully we can pickup 1 of those 4 needs in free agency, while still keeping Pito, Pollard, & Verner.

    Assuming we don't drop back and pick up a third, because we're the Titans and we don't do things like that.

    1. Antonio Richardson
    2. Kareem Martin
    4. Chris Borlan

    The good news is this draft will probably be loaded with OT talent.

    I'd take it. I'm just hoping for either OT, DE, RB, & MLB with our first 3 picks.

    There's 3 RBs i'm checking out: Marion Grice, Lache Seastrunk, and Bishop Sankey.

    Sankey has that elusive cut ability. He's probably a 2nd round guy this year. Wouldn't mind that but not sure id be super happy with it either.

    I wouldn't be surprised if we took 2 RBs in this draft tho. Carlos Hyde would be someone we could get late.

    I wouldn't be upset. Taking a RB like rd 2/3, then another like Rd 5? Pair those two up with Shonn Greene and maybe bring in a cheap FA vet RB to battle for a spot also.

    Yea some youth in the backfield is what we need. Seastrunk would be my personal early round rb fav at the moment. Good balance of speed and power. Kinda reminds me of the cat that the bengals got this year.

    Hey Guys,

    I think the key for us this coming offseason is not to make any major changes. Lets try and keep our defense in tact, resign the pit, Verner, Morgan and Pollard. Release CJ and Britt or whatever saves us money for contracts for performers like Verner and Pollard. I like our secondary right now, and with Williams Blitz packages we look good and BWW and Sensabaugh are high draft picks that need to develop.

    The main change on defense would be firing Grey and making Williams the DC. Makes sense.

    Stewart is a worry, I have always liked Stingly so maybe we see what he has this year. Otto is decent back up too, but that said a OT is high on our need list, in a deep class.

    With CJ gones we need another RB, I like Grice and Seastrunk but I would rather look in FA. A guy like Anthony Dixon or Jonathan Dwyer could be guys that could fit in with the cut and go style to compliment Greene.
    Would also look for a vet WR, with Britt gone.

    That said here is my early scenario.

    Trade Down - Browns trade 1st(Colts, i.e 27th) and 3rd and 4th for our 1st Rounder(18th). Take Sammy Watkins with there 1st and then trade back up for Mettenberger or Manziel.


    1. Austin Safarian-Jenkins TE Washington 6'6 257lbs
    I like the fit and his size in the red zone. Cutting Stevens and Thompson for Walker and ASJ. We are missing a guy like this.

    2. Timmy Jernigan DT FSU 6-2 298lbs
    Would be a great fit with Casey, gives us some inside pass rush.

    3. Jackson Jeffcoat DE Texas 6'4 252lbs
    Under achiever in College but good value and a good fit here.

    4. Morgan Moses OT Virginia 6'6 325lbs
    Monster LT, Stewart has been poor, but so has Roos.

    4. Max Bullough MLB Michigan State 6'3 245lbs
    Keeping Fokou?? McCarthy frail but good, think we will take a MLB at some point

    5. Prince Shembo OLB Notre Dame 6'1 258lbs
    More Pass rushers for Williams

    6. Jimmy Garoppolo QB Eastern Illinois 6'2 222lbs
    Need one

    7. Michael Campanaro WR Wake Forest 5'10 190lbs
    Always liked this guy, Plays like Welker, smart and reliable
