    Yeah but he's had pretty bad injuries the past 2 years and they were at the end of the season so it didn't affect his games played.

    I'd be fine with Barron, but in rd 1 seems like a reach.

    Jenkins is the best talent we could get at 20, but our FO will probably hide from that pick because he's the next pacman jones.

    I say there is no way we go DE in the first round at 20, 17-24 not a good range for DE's.

    My best guess would be Luke Kuechly if he falls but idk how things will shake out. My darkhorse would be Michael Floyd, just seems like a Titan esque pick.

    Micheal Floyd would be fine with me. very similar prospect to Britt and productive at ND for 4 years.

    A lot of Wrs will put up big numbers in a season and then those numbers will decline as teams game plan more to stop them but his numbers got better every year.

    Durable and consistent.

    I don't think he would be a reach at all. Jenkins while he is super talented he does come with a lot of baggage and has multiple kids with multiple women very Cromartie of him. Supposedly he has turned it around but you would too if you had to pay child support for a bunch of kids. I don't see us going DE either unless Coples or Ingram fall or they like Upshaw who I'm a big fan of. Kuechly or Floyd would be gems at 20.

    Ask the Giants if you can ever have enough good pass rushers. Coples, Ingram, or Upshaw would be the only DE's I would consider however.

    Hindsight is 20/20

    Would be super happy with Floyd.

    We will probably grab a DT at 20, it's really the only weak spot we have at this time. The defensive backfield will be alright, same with the linebackers, but unless we add a DT, we'll be soft. Casey is the only DT we have that we can play all 3 downs with. Marks sucks, Smith sucks, and Klug gets pushed around early in games.

    I think Devon Still is way underrated. I see him in mock drafts going between pick 9 all the way down to the second round... talent wise he is a first rounder all the way

    I think that, but then I look at where Casey was drafted and his impact. I know that doesn't happen often... but still

    What DT's will be available at 20 though? We could probably get Thompson/Still in the 2nd.

    There is no way Still falls that far... talent wise he is a top 15 pick... if he falls to the second he doesnt make it past st louis
