    Wait one minute, Barry Sanders was great until he was 30, and would have been great for more years had he not retired. A back such as CJ and Barry can last because they manage not to take as many hard hits as other RB's. CJ has atleast 3-4 years left in him..I could definitely see us taking a big bruiser back(once Harper proves himself unworthy of that title) with a mid round pick. That would help expand CJ's lifespan in the NFL, and it would help our offense do even more damage to opposing defenses.

    Also, you forgot to mention interior O-line.

    No idea, so many names I saw last year after the draft for this years draft that were supposed to be 1st round talents ended up going undrafted. Cliff Harris CB from Oregon was one and then an offensive tackle from BYU was supposed to be the best tackle in the class and he went undrafted as well. Can't really say right now. I'll get back to you when the season starts.

    Didn't mention interior o-line because we will sign another good vet lineman like we did with Hutchinson.

    Average life of a RB is 5 years. That's a fact; it's the average. I'm not making it up. And to even compare Barry Sanders to CJ is crazy. CJ is 100% speed. He's already lost a step which was evident last year. He isn't getting any faster. Eventually (soon), he'll be done.

    Obviously I'm not saying CJ is a better player than Barry, but CJ will be able to play great football til he is 30 for the same reason Barry did; they are so elusive that they don't take many big hits...to get his replacement in next years draft when CJ is only 27 years old would be absurd...Did Javon Ringer not prove himself worthy of taking over if CJ does happen to slip up again? I think so...a mid round bruiser would be fine, but we have 2 RB's that are more than capable of toating the rock for us for atleast 3-4 more years.

    He has the physical tools to do either but he's a free safety. He's a true ball hawk but he has some work to do. I wouldn't want to draft a player in the 1st/2nd and make him switch positions.

    Mathieu sucks he's so overrated and doesn't project well in the NFL at all, 4th round maybe. I sorta agree on CJ he can go for another couple of years but we do need someone to split carries with him to add a year or two for CJ's career. To be fair to Morgan we haven't seen him at 100% yet, he is a 1st round talent. Also let's go BPA safety at either position then just sign someone for the other spot. I'm ready to get Griffin and Babs out of here.

    I like Bacarri Rambo.

    Before the Brown pick, I would have mentioned Gerald Hodges from Penn State as a WLB. He is like Brown, but he is aggressive, wraps people up, and tries every play.
