    LeSean McCoy: 4.8 ypc
    Levon Bell: 4.7 ypc
    Demarco Murray: 4.3 ypc
    Frank Gore: 4.8 ypc
    Arian Foster: 4.4 ypc

    All top-10 in rushing yards last year (including 4 of the top-6), and they all averaged less than 5 ypc their final years in college. So what's your point?

    I don't see Seastruck being anything but a bench warmer.

    It's crazy how he went from a potential 2nd round pick to the practice squad.

    I know right?! What happened??? People were all about him.....Then he just fell off. He did well in college too. I don't expect much, but man, can't we just get some luck and somehow have something like this happen.? Lol

    I know we have a ton of young guys already at CB (BWW, Sensabaugh, Huff, & Wooten), plus McCourty penciled in as our #1 w/ Perrish Cox as our #2. But, we could still use an upgrade at CB. I think with so many other needs it may get pushed to the later rounds however. The young guys (although awful last year) still all have potential. In fact, BWW is nearly perfect for LeBeaus scheme - could he bounce back from an awful season?

    However, i'd love if this guy fell to us in the 4th:

    Ifo Ekpre-Olomu - Would likely be a late 1st/early 2nd, if he didnt hurt his knee right before playoffs. He's an undersized CB (5'9 192) but is extremely quick, aggressive, and has some of the most fluid hips i've seen. He actually reminds me of Verner with his coverage, but the tackling and physsical-ness of Finnegan. He'd come in and likely win the slot spot (although I really do like Huff in the slot). Ekpre-Olomu would dominate in the slot and could be a difference maker. The question is, when will he be 100% and does that knee check out?

    I still have faith in him. He's deadly in open space and I think wiz can find a way to use him.

    What I want to know is are we playing grandpa Dick's 3-4 or Ray Horton's 3-4? They require totally different corners. Both want decent to good size, but Horton likes his man-to-man coverage.

    Our pass rush is no where near fixed IMO. Still too many questions to be fixed. Orakpo could get hurt again, Morgan gets close to the QB more than he takes them down. With that said; I still hope we do not take a edge rusher at #2. We have so many holes, that I think we have to address another. If we do take an edge rusher; will they sit? Will Morgan sit? Will they be a situational guy?? #2 just seems high to take a guy to rush the passer in situational football.

    I've been a big believer in Dante Fowler for two years and he's a perfect fit.

    Jameis Winston, Leonard Williams, Dante Fowler or Danny Shelton. Anyone else and we're doomed. DOOOOOOMED.

    Fowler is intriguing and looks like a beast on tape. I just think we should look at other holes. If we take Fowler, one of the vets we just paid very well will sit if he beats them out. If he does not beat one of them out then our #2 pick is riding the bench. And with the way Whis is so loyal to vet players (EG: Leon Washington) I would not be surprised to see Whis sit him.

    One thing is for sure. Whoever we take at #2 we cannot afford for them to be a guy in the waiting on the bench. We HAVE to take a difference maker that will be on the field day 1 of the regular season!

    I think Fowler is going to be a stud in the NFL. I just do not know if he is the best pick for us at #2.

    I really like Williams. He can be a difference maker for us like we have not had on defense for years.

    Winston is the best QB in the draft IMO, but I say he goes to TB at #1.

    Love what Shelton does on defense, but think #2 is a bit too high for him. If we could trade back and come away with Shelton I would be thrilled.

    Fowler is the best pass rusher in the draft IMO. He looks like he will make an immediate impact for whichever team gets him. However, with our investment in Orakpo & Morgan I think we should address/upgrade another position. I know you can not have enough good pass rushers, but I think we have to address another need. Just my opinion, I am sure others disagree.

    When its all said & done we just need a play maker that can contribute BIG TIME from day 1. I hate seeing us take guys in the 1st that have to sit for a while before they make it on the field.
