    I think the draft sets up for us to take CB, WR, or T in the 1st.

    CB isn't that deep outside the top couple dudes. You can get a good WR in the 2nd or 3rd, but Bateman and Marshall are so nice. Tackle slots well for our draft pick in the 1st.

    I think day 2 is the day to take an IDL or edge. I'm also not sure Barmore makes sense after taking Autry.

    I have to agree with having Autry that DT isn't a major need, but would like to have someone that can come in and give him rest but still be productive. The kid out of Arkansas looks good enough and has potential to go later rounds, but if LSU DT or OSU's there in the 3rd/ 4th he's a get.

    There is a ton of CB in this class, and I don't think the quality drops off that much from top to bottom, with an improved pass rush just getting dudes my be the route here.

    I feel the same way about WR as I do about CB's. In this NFL with the offensive edge, decent hands, decent routes, and decent speed and you have your #2 -3 WR. Palmer (TN) the two guys out of Auburn may be the guys late here as well.

    I think Edge is where we will bury our top picks, assuming there isn't a run on them early if so and a good OT falls to us I can see us having another boring 1st round pick.

    Gotta admit, i too have been surprised at how the Dupree signing has basically removed our need for Edge help from a lot of peoples minds, and mock drafts.

    This time last year, we had

    Landry
    Clowney
    Beasley

    And look how that turned out.

    This year we have Landry and Dupree.

    We def need more help rushing the QB

    It isn't so much the signing of Dupree that did it.

    It was cutting Butler, Adoree, and Kelly and letting Davis and Smith walk.

    I get that, more needs were created.

    We still need more on the edge though

    Got to mention Jayson Oweh after the pro day he just had, 6'5" 257 with a 4.36 40, 1.59 10 yard split, 4.15 shuttle and a 6.84 3 cone with a 39.5" vert and an 11'2" broadjump. Very much a raw player but that size/speed combo alone is worth a look, the 3 cone with that shouldn't be physically possible. He's basically a bigger and more agile/maneuverable DK Metcalf trying to get after the QB. At least worth considering if no WR falls imo

    please no reach picks like this....show me the plays on the field in pads, not a work out in shorts......I'd take him in the 4th at the earliest.... a guy with those measurables should be causing havoc on the field but only has 7 sacks in 3 yrs and 2 FF

    Shaka Toney is my day 3 dude.

    1) He was the top pass rusher over Yetur Gross Matos and then Jason Oweh.
    2) Ran a 4.51 forty, had a 39 inch vert, had a 1.54 split, and a 6.9 three cone.

    Dude is elite getting off the ball.

    The nice thing about Oweh is he plays hard. He doesn't really have football technique, but he runs all over the place.
