    Since OLB/pass rusher isn't such a glaring need now with this signing, my top 2 players I want at #11 are Ebron and Donald.

    To me Donald is like a cross between Watt & Suh. He has a great motor and ran a really great 40 time for a lineman his size.

    But to me, I just have this sneaking suspicion now that Ebron is going to be the pick. With Whis's history running 2 TE sets, and with all of the history some of our coaches on this staff have at utilizing the TE position I'm thinking he's the guy. Plus, can you imagine if Delanie went down for the season week 1? Are we really going to roll with Stevens and Thompson for the rest of the year?

    Guys how about we take a page from the Raiders draft book and take a kicker in the first round? It's fail proof.

    I hadn't thought about Ebron, but I have to admit that does make a lot of sense.

    I really like this. As you all said, now we can take BPA. I'd really be OK at this point with any of the top talent: Donald, Barr, Gilbert, Denard. I'm positive one of those four will be there when we draft and I think they could all be really good players.

    As for QB, if one of the top 3 slip magically, I'd also be very OK with that, esp if Ken thinks he can be good I'd trust him. Although, I think I'd be learning toward one of those 4 players above and a QB in the second could also work.

    If a QB slips I'd like to trade out and get that 3rd back, maybe 2 3rd's if possible.
    I've said it before, I think Cleveland could be our trade partner if a QB slips.

    The only reason that I think we'd pass on Donald is that we have Casey, Morgan, Pito, Martin, & Klug that will likely play 3-4 DE. I still want Donald, but I can see the FO passing on DE, sadly.

    Ebron is starting to grow on me. So is Gilbert, even though I'm really high on Coty Sensabaugh.. it would be a smart pick.

    Mike Evans wouldn't be bad either.
