    He would be a great fit for us. If we win a few games and end up picking in the bottom half of the top 10, I could easily see him being our 1st round pick. How high would you take him? Is top 5 out of the question?

    I would not touch him in the top 5. I have no doubts that he is going to be a good player in the NFL, but I haven't seen the impact plays from him this year to warrant that high of a pick. I'd probably give him a grade in the 10-15 range.

    Gaines Adams will likely be a top 5 player, as he should be, unless he bombs his workouts. I don't get why people say he's been inconsistent this year. I've watched him for the majority of the season and he's been very productive.

    I like Gaines Adams. I've watched Landry a few times and he hasn't impressed me at all. One player that will be a stud is Patrick Willis. I know we don't need a MLB right now with Tulloch showing promise, but if he drops to the 2nd, I'm thinking about taking him anyways.

    Dude, we need a MLB in the worst way. Tulloch hasn't shown much of anything. I just don't know about Gaines Adams anymore. From what I've read, scouts are seeing him more as a OLB in a 3-4, a Merrimon type guy. I keep hearing this Branch guy from Michigan is good, but his stats are abismal from what I've seen.

    i would strongly disagree
    you cant judge a DT by stats.

    He can definately play OLB in a 3-4, but he's not going to be the type that's relegated to one position. He can play 3-4 OLB, and just as effectively play 4-3 DE. It will all be dependant on which type of teams drafts him.
