    In this draft their isn't any reliable talent worth drafting in the first two rounds at safety. I don't like the bigger safeties who can't cover. I prefer the ball hawk type at both FS and SS. I want to see DT, DE, C, and G drafted in the early rounds this year. Take care of both safety positions in the FA period. They are probably cheaper to sign than pass rushers in FA. Then draft the next rookie pass rusher in the draft

    People said that about Jarius Byrd and TJ Ward, both 2nd rounders, both were impressive there rookie years.

    Markelle Martin is NFL material IMO.

    Griffin at SS!?? Do you watch Titan games? Griffin is terrible in run support/tackling, he would likely get dominated at SS.. especially anytime our SSs in the box.

    That's exactly what he is, and he isnt going to be able to add much weight, he was having a hard time last season keeping it on.

    I understand fully what kluge does and is good at and what he fits. It wouldn't hurt to try him there tho. I'm sure our coaches have looked at the possibility

    Why change what he does? He did well this season.

    Not so much change what he does, but look to see if he could be an effective edge rusher.

    Even though I'm against interior line in the 1st round do we really pass on DeCastro?

    Says who? Here's some MockDrafts and where they have him going:

    Rob Rang (CBSSports) - #17
    Dane Brugler (CBSSports) - #13
    Charles Davis (NFL.com) - #29
    Chad Reuter (NFL.com) - #16
    Charley Casserly (NFL.com) - #14
    Bucky Brooks (NFL.com) - #19
    WalterFootball - #13
    DraftCountdown - #17

    How often are interior OL drafted before #15? Almost never. It's very possible for DeCastro to be available at our 1st.
