    Reed is a stretch, just hoping TE isn't a need for some teams, or TE needy teams will address it earlier or in FA. I think Da'Rick could be there though. His baggage scares a lot of teams.

    no doubt about rodgers and his baggage but i dont think that will stop a team like cinci or even the pats from taking him....can you see rodgers with green with bernard or lacy running the ball for them...

    reed will go in the 2nd i think due to his field stretching ability and the success of hernadez who he is compared too, 3rd at the latest

    To get an extra second we'd have to trade back to the 20 at the earliest and while Warford, Truant, and Fluker would likely be there I think we should just take BPA at 10

    Not happening. Best case scenario is we get another 3rd. I'd rather do this:

    Swap 1st w/ Miami or TB (for Lane or Xavier) - pickup an additional 3rd.

    1st (TB/MIA) - Chance Warmack, G, Bama
    2nd (OURS) - DeAndre Hopkins, WR, Clemson
    3rd (OURS) - Corey Lemonier, DE, Auburn
    3rd (TB/MIA) - Barrett Jones, G/C, Bama
    3rd (Comp) - Leon McFadden, CB, San Diego St
    4th (OURS) - AJ Klien, ILB, Iowa St
    5th (OURS) - Kerwynn Williams, RB, Utah St
    6th (OURS) - RayRay Armstrong, S, Miami

    We finalize our offensive line, Warmack starts @ guard. Jones backsup interior spots, potential replacement for Velasco year 2. Hopkins is our starting slot receiver. Lemonier can get after the QB, reminds me of Wimbley, #3 DE. Hopefully, we still go out and pickup a vet FA CB, McFadden/Coty/TC battle for #4 CB playing time. AJ backs up McCarthy, and will likely see time once he gets hurt. Kerwynn will battle w/ Reynald for both a RB roster spot and returner. RayRay depth, PS.

    Another option, same trade as above. Then flip our 2nd w/ a 3rd to move into late 1st. Say a team like GB @ #26 wouldn't mind slipping 14 spots and picking up an addt'l 3rd. We only do this if Desmond Trufant falls below 20, which he shouldnt IMO. We then do this:

    1st (TB/MIA) - Chance Warmack, G, Bama
    1st (Late 1st) - Desmond Trufant, CB, Washington
    3rd (TB/MIA) - Corey Lemonier, DE, Auburn
    3rd (Comp) - Quinton Patton, WR, Louisana Tech
    4th (OURS) - AJ Klien, ILB, Iowa St
    5th (OURS) - Kerwynn Williams, RB, Utah St
    6th (OURS) - RayRay Armstrong, S, Miami

    The last two seasons we've drafted a linebacker with first round talent who has fallen into the second.

    Say what you will about Te'o but he is still a great linebacker prospect.

    too much baggage and bs for our FO to pull the trigger. We don't need the distractions in a do or die year and we aren't a veteran team which is where he needs to go.

    Pretty much nailed it.

    Add in that he was never that good, just hyped up by the media and was on a championship contender team (which is a joke). He gets alot of tackles, which are assisted, isn't that athletic, tackles 5+ yards back, but a smart/instinctive player... he's Barrett Ruud 2.0
