    1 [​IMG] OT Luke Joeckel Texas A&M Jr. 6-6 310
    Quarterback is clearly the crying need in K.C., but there's not an Andrew Luck or RGIII in sight atop this year's board. Maybe a passer gets pushed up into this spot at some point, but for now the value of the slot says you take the franchise left tackle in the first round and then try to pick off a quarterback to start the second round. Everybody knows Andy Reid likes to build his roster from the lines out, and with Chiefs left tackle Branden Albert eligible for free agency, Joeckel is the logical replacement.
    2 [​IMG] DE Bjoern Werner Florida State Jr. 6-4 256
    It seems as if we've been writing about the Jaguars' need to acquire more pass rush in the draft for about 13 years in a row now. But with just 20 sacks last season, Jacksonville ranked 32nd in the league in dropping the quarterback. The Jags are in luck in that there are a lot of talented pass rushers in this year's top 10. Jacksonville plans to stick with a 4-3 defense under new head coach Gus Bradley and defensive coordinator Bob Babich, and Werner is well-suited to that scheme, with 13 sacks and 18 tackles for loss last season.
    3 [​IMG] DE Damontre Moore Texas A&M Jr. 6-4 250
    Like the Jaguars, the Raiders are desperate for pass rush (they had 25 in 2012, ranking 31st), and Moore fits their need perfectly. Georgia outside linebacker Jarvis Jones is another option, but he's better suited to 3-4 outside linebacker, and the Raiders field a 4-3 look. Moore can handle playing in either formation, and his 12.5 sacks and 20 tackles for loss for the Aggies should translate into a top-three grade in this year's defense-heavy draft.
    4 [​IMG] QB Geno Smith West Virginia Sr. 6-3 220
    This is where the real guess-work begins, because so much depends on whether new Eagles coach Chip Kelly believes he currently has his starting quarterback on the roster or not. Smith's talents aren't a perfect mesh for Kelly's up-tempo offense, but he's got enough mobility to get the job done, and his pocket-passing skills are NFL ready. We know quarterbacks get pushed up by need, but the Eagles defense needs so much help that Alabama cornerback Dee Milliner could be


    10 [​IMG] OG Chance Warmack Alabama Sr. 6-2 322
    I think Titans head coach Mike Munchak played a little guard as I recall, and he's going to see the NFL's next great guard when he scouts Warmack's game. It's not a sexy pick for the Titans, but protecting Jake Locker and helping the Chris Johnson-led ground game get more consistent is plenty important enough to warrant a top 10 pick on an interior lineman of rare pedigree.

    I really hope we get ourselves the linemen we need, otherwise we're wasting precious time.

    Locker will be gone in 2 years if he's not protected.

    Don't blow this Titans, sure up the O-Line or die.

    Calling Geno Smith to Philly to run Kelly's circus of an offense.



    I'd be pissed at #10

    Never take a guard in the top 10.

    Defense, defense and defense.

    OL in free agency and later rounds.

    Tell that to the two HOF OL on our roster, but guards, both drafted in the Top-10.

    O-Line is the best thing we can add with that 10th pick, that is unless we already grabbed the needed player in free agency, then I'd go DT or or BPA, maybe even get that 3rd CB we're missing.

    Need a serious threat at DT or DE at 10.

    Our defensive line scares no one.

    Save your o-line pick for the 2nd and 3rd.

    Yeaaa but,

    without a starting Guard from this draft, we're spinning our wheels.

    Our offense needs to work, otherwise our D will suck again.

    If we do take a guard that high he had better be another Bruce Matthews, Will Shields or Larry Allen. Guy who does not miss games, plays a lot of years and is a lock for the Pro Bowl every year.

    That being said. All indications are he will probably be that type of player.
