    Drafting on potential and combine results is nothing new. Stupid? Sure. Illogical? Nope.

    Best WR concept is all wrong.

    I hate this notion that we absolutely have to take a WR in rd one. I think you never put yourself in that position. Take the best player period. The 2 real stud WR prospects won't be there.

    Defense is the strength where we will be drafting. Corners like jenkins, mckelvin, cason. DEs like jackson or blake. DT like okam. If hope's future is in doubt and phillips is there i would take him. The top TE in the draft might be there a guy like carlson.

    We have so many doubts and questions, pacman, what free agents we will lose and sign. To just say we have to take a WR is just wrong thinking..

    I don't think anything is going to be set in stone, I can see us taking a DT in the 1st more so than a WR. There are lots of good receivers that can be taken in the 2nd and 3rd but few really great DTs.

    I would love to see us Get Matellus Bennett in the 2nd he really has it all but the biggest drawback is his attitude. Another might be Fred Davis

    I really don't want to see us take another DB in the first even if we lose hope we still have Packman and can either keep him or trade him before next season.

    If we don't consider pacman worth keeping then what is his market value?

    If hope is out then we have to start lowry 16 games but what if lowry goes down?

    I think DB is exactly where we need to look because of the uncertainty of hope and pacman. A stud safety would give us all kinds of options with griffin who could be our nickel or slot guy in passing situations. A stud corner could be our starter opposite finnegan for the next 8 years. Our defense is strong at linebacker and in the line let's keep drafting quality athletes for the secondary.

    Our first 2 picks should be DB and DE in either order. Take the best athlete each time. In rd 3 or maybe even 4 go WR. Maybe come back with some o-line help in the middle rds.

    First priority is if Albert Haynesworth will be back next season. If not maybe a DL. Like Groves from Auburn who can play DE and OLB. If we do re-sign him I still like the order of WR, DL/LB, RB, DL/LB, then whatever else, probaly DB.

    Vince, why would DB be your last priority when hope has a career threatening injury, pacman is a question mark and harper is 33 years old and will turn 34 in september?

    DB is priority #1 if we expect to stay a top 10 defense.

    Even if we can't sign haynesworth we will have him one more year by franchising him. DE won't be a desperation position if we keep laboy because we still have another veteran in fisher.

    Stewart and bell are both FAs and olson and mawae are going to be 33 and 37 respectively next year but o-line isn't a priority either?.

    Runningback? With all these other issues you still want a RB?

    Griffin and Griffin starting Safeties would be worth the draft pick.
