    I really hope we don't take Gilbert at 11. He's probably better than Blidi and Coty but i'd rather see Barr with that pick.

    I want to see what Blidi can do, but I think d-line is our biggest priority.

    It has to be the best front-seven player, in my opinion. We can't stop the run and we have one guy who consistently gets after the QB. Those have been issues for years. It's time to get them fixed.

    I like the Phillips addition, and I can see Wimbley as our other outside linebacker. Throwing Ayers and possibly Morgan on the outside as well. Horton defense calls for lineman to take multiple blockers on to free our linebackers up, I would like to see us get bigger on the ends.

    I don't think this is a smokescreen at all. If they go secondary in the 1st, it is going to be a top 2 safety like Pryor or Ha-Ha. (Pryor IMO). I think it is what it is. I think Whiz likes Carr personally, and if he isn't there at #11, he will take BPA. Don't think for a second that OT/NT are out of this equation at all. If a top 2 tackle is somehow there, I could see them taking one since Roos may be gone soon. I also think with the transition to 3-4. a nasty nost tackle could be in the mix. I think the writing is on the wall now..BPA...and that could be many things such as QB/S/OLB/OT/DT/WR

    I think there is a very real chance that Barr and Mack are not there when we pick thus making the BPA either Eric Ebron, Mike Evans, or Justin Gilbert.

    I think the pick come down to Ebron or Gilbert if the top ten consists of Mathews, Clowney, Robinson, Mack, Barr, and Watkins.

    There are SO many ways we could go with the pick. I agree virtually no position can be ruled out, except RB and if Whis is to be believed CB as well. There is literally no player I'm seeing consistently mocked in the top 11 that I would be upset with us taking. Can't remember the last time I could say that about a draft.

    That said, QB is definitely the direction I'd like to see us go.

    I hear Phillips is another Pollard type, confidence thru the roof and never shuts up, thats a good thing IMO.
