    I don't know who mentioned him, but I would really like to pick up Isaiah Peed (Cincy) in the draft. IF we can get him in the third or later. I have no idea when this guy will go, so just throwing that out there.

    Is not a big guy 5'1'' 200 lbs but runs real hard.

    You saw him play too eh? Guy looked incredible. Would he go all the way to the 3rd? I don't think so, but im not a draft expert.

    edit: I don't want him on this team, though.

    I have a few issues with your offseason plan starting with Simon Pouha. Casey is the run stuffer on our defense. He was a nose tackle at USC and a is very, very solid against the run. My issue with a Pouha/Casey DT tandem is that while we would be stronger against the run we really have no one that will penetrate the pock and aid our pass rush.

    I like both the Konz and Zeiflter picks in a vacuum but adding both of them and expecting them to start day one at a high level is a little hard to believe. If we don't go out and sign a vet OC/OG to go along with what ever rookie IOL then I think we are taking on a HUGE risk.

    I also don't like the fact the only starter to change in our front seven is swapping Smith (a run stopper) for Pouha (a run stopper{admittedly a better one}]. I think that is going sideways and not forward.

    Also, why isn't Washington starting?

    He's projected 2nd overall RB taken if I remember correctly. I think we have too many other needs before we take a RB in the fourth or before

    Finnegan would be the biggest FA we need to lock up. After today I also wouldn't mind Avery coming back.

    Like others have said, we need to upgrade the lines, badly. Good offensive linemen don't seem to be available in FA too often so I think we should look into a C early in the draft - problem is we have a ton of money locked up in Amano and I really doubt Munchak is ready to let him go. We should go O-line or D-line with the first 3 picks in the draft, then we can get into LB and secondary depth.

    I'd stay away from drafting a WR. We have enough young guys trying to learn. We need a veteran 3rd guy. Britt/Nate will be the starters, I'd like to see the Titans pick up someone like Steve Smith (Eagles) or even a Wayne/Colston if they don't have faith in Britt being back to 100% next year. The latter two have great work ethics and attitudes and will fit in with what the coaching staff is trying to build.

    Aside from that, we need to pick up a good RB in FA. Kevin Smith looks pretty good from the list I saw. I know he's had a lot of injuries, it's a worthwhile risk if you ask me though. We need someone that's capable of beating CJ out for the starting spot. We can't have this "CJ is the starter regardless" crap with the way he's played this year.

    Yeah... we don't necessarily need a WR in the draft. I think our crew has grown a lot this season, and Avery looked decent today.

    Do you really think we can justify spending our pick on a DT in the first after the good seasons Klug and Casey have had? I have not sen Sill play so I am not sure. I think we could go DE, but I dont think DT. I think we have atleast 2 maybe 3 needs before we spend the first on a DT, and I don't think we fill them in the draft.

    edit- ah just read the rest of your plan....
