    I'd rather have Star... he's a freak of nature. Bjoern would be my #2 (if in 43) and Jarvis Jones (if in 34).

    Just imagine Ngata on our line. He's able to asorb double teams and still get to the rusher/passer... plus opens up a block for others. Casey, Wimbley, & Morgan now get 1v1s... which should help.

    OH! and another positive note, if the Saints/Browns end up before us... we'd technically be drafting two spots earlier in the 2nd.

    Saints forfeited pick (due to bounty) & Browns gave up their 2nd in supplement draft (for Josh Gordon). :) Woo!

    Very nice catch! I can see the browns happening... Saints... Lol I think they will just squeeze by to be better this year.

    I love the amount of safeties with first/second round talent that could be had in round three and beyond this year, i.e. getting Bacarri Rambo in the third and Ray-Ray Armstrong in the fifth.

    1st: Star Lotulelei, DT, Utah
    Star is the #1 player on my big board. I didn't know a ton about him, until a week or so ago.. i've been watching games of him - WOW. He's a legit 6'4 320 Ngata clone. He's a rare blend of size and athleticism. One of my biggest factors in finding players I like is if they're hard workers. Star gives 100% on EVERY play. He came out of High School at 240, now look at him.. you don't add 100 lbs without hard work. He seems like a very down to earth guy that will work hard to become a force in the NFL. He should free up blocks for Casey, Wimbley, and Morgan and help out the entire front 7. We have a suddenly bright DT future with Star, Casey, Martin, and Klug.

    2nd: Kenny Vaccaro, S, Texas
    3rd: Center (don't know enough about any of the prospects to give a name)
    3rd:* Stepfan Taylor, RB, Stanford
    4th: Ezekiel Ansah, DE, BYU
    5th: Hugh Thornton, OG, Illinois
    6th: Ray-Ray Armstong, S, ???
    7th: Cameron Marshall, RB, Arizona St


    I'd love this draft. Fixes our terrible safties. Griff has to battle Ray-Ray, Markelle Martin, Rojo, and Babineaux for a roster spot. Stepfan Taylor is our starting RB, with Reynauld/Harper/FA fighting for astarting spot. Ezekiel Ansah (google his story) would be awesome in the 4th for depth. Hugh fights Velasco/Harris/FA for a starting guard spot. RayRay would of been a 2nd/3rd rounder... but he made stupid choices.

    Sure you can just ask LenDale White

    Ray ray Armstrong will most likely go undrafted but other then that I'd love this draft (even though you jocked my Stephan Taylor swag). The only thing I'd change is going Jonathan Cooper in round 2 and just letting our safeties upgrade via experience/FA/scheme change.

    #1: You got me. 100lbs of strength.
    #2: Ray-Ray will move up after his combine I bet.
    #3: Someone shed light to Stepfan Taylor on this forum to me... don't remember who - if it was you. Props.
    #4: We need to upgrade our safeties. Both of them are trash right now, and were both below average this year. What's another year of experience going to do for them? Unsure about available FAs.

    I feel that changing our scheme defensive scheme would really help our secondary along with adding more talent to our front seven. We need to improve our pass rush because no matter who we have in the defensive backfield they will get burned due to the fact that opposing QB's have all day to find an open receiver.

    Cooper would also help in that regard by adding to our running game and keeping our retooled front seven off of the field. We can pair him with Holmes out of USC and have our interior set for the next few years.

    Let's shoot for the STAR boys!!!

    I'd rather grab o-line in the 2nd(your top guards/centers will fall there) and wait til the 3rd to get safety where there will most certaintly be a few good ones left. Ray Ray in the 6th would be gold. Our FO doesn't usually go for the guys with character issues though so let's not hold our breath. At RB, I'm feelin Monte Ball or Knile Davis...they are both suffering this season from different team related issues(wisconsin lost 2 beast o-lineman, Arkansas' coach got fired), but I think they'd be steals in the late 3rd or 4th round..

    Tell me more about this manimal you speak of, Ezikiel Ansah.
