calvin johnson is the second coming of larry fitzgerald
An offensive trio of Vince Young, Lendale White and Calvin Johnson would set this offense up for ten years.
With our first round pick we need to be targetting pro-bowl quality players. We have got about 6 decent #2/#3 receivers on our roster and 2 borderline #1 receivers (Givens, bennett). A true standout #1 receiver would be a well placed investment in my view, and there is no better prospect than Calvin Johnson.
why draft another safety? O-line sure...not a another running back and so why not a wide reciever if he is REALY worth it...but then again we would be over loaded with WRs...so
safety because this is a make or break year for lamont as far as im concerned. i like the kid a lot and his potential, but this is the year for him to become a reliable starter if he's going to do it.
but would i take calvin johnson? absolutely....
if we're drafting high enough to get Johnson (top 5 position), we have some major issues somewhere on defense..my bet is we draft about 10 to 12th, and we go for a DL..
nah, don't go DL, just sign Dwight Freeney
i heard he'll have room to re-sign in indy
our WR's could be amazing or amazingly average... we'll know that come draft time.
either he signs for $4 or the Colts are cheating the cap.
Well...We need a solid Right defensive end...and lamont may be a better SS then a FS....we'll see
I'm guessing our upcoming needs are:
1. o-line - including center to replace Mawae a couple years out, and probably another high calibur guard/tackle type.
2. cornerback - always a need, always hurt, plus we're reluctant to keep the folks we draft so we have to keep bringing in new.
3. we might still be looking for chow's "scatback" type 3rd down back, although I'm hoping we find someone to fill that role this year (Ganther maybe)
4. We might need to put QB on our draft list also, although I'm guessing a free agent QB might be the preferred route. Volek won't hang around here as backup when VY takes over, so I'd guess a mid to late round draftpick spent on a developmental QB might be in the works next year. We can't keep cycling through league rejects at backup. Volek has been a luxury for us.
