    I understand the money concerns on Albert but personally I try to look at things from an on the field perspective before worrying on what financial ramifications may come. Albert puts us well on our way to a top 10 O-line immediately and frees us up to focus our picks on the defensive linemen/linebackers and possibly even QB that we need this year. As someone else said this week it's good to be in a position to have to decide which one of your studs to pay. The money will get spent anyways, might as well get some W's for your money. Hell you still have the option of taking another OT in the 2nd/3rd if you really love a guy and think he is the future.

    Exactly, but as a person who knows that Raji wants a 43 team - why would you want him if we're primarily running a 3-4? Nobody wants unhappy players.

    Imagine landing Orakpo (big $) & Karlos Dansby (little $). Keep Pollard & Pito.

    I would then trade way back to the 20s & pickup an additional 2nd & 4th. We then would have 1st (20s), Our 2nd, Later 2nd, Our 4th, Later 4th, & our 5th-7th.

    Take BPA of 34 DE, NT, CB, QB, RB, and OT with our first picks. 5 of the 6 would be in the Top-120.

    Imagine landing Nix (1st), Morgan Moses (2nd), Stanley Jean-Patiste (2nd), AJ McCarron (4th), & Lache Seastrunk (4th).

    Exactly. By Taking Albert, you can go get a nother later and relieve the pressue of having to draft one 1st round and yet, still solidify the line for years even planning for ROOS departure. This allows them to be more aggressive Defensively in the draft, or to snag a playmaker like a QB/RB/ or WR as well. ESPECIALLY since as of right now, they do not have a 3rd round pick.

    There's endless possibilites.

    1st - Justin Gilbert, CB, Oklahoma St
    2nd - Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame
    2nd - Tre Mason, RB, Auburn
    4th - James Hurst, OT, UNC
    4th - Aaron Murray, QB, UGA
    5th - Justin Ellis, NT, LA Tech

    w/ Orakpo & Dansby FAs. Keep Pollard.

    We literally can do BPA in like 6 different positions.

    Yeah man, that is a dream scenario. I would love that. Now is the time to step up and make a statement, ya know? Great opportunity and position we are in.

    Im on to Greg Hardy, he made his name off 3 games last year, and in all of those games he took advantage of some HORRIBLE left tackles. IDK that I buy his game, I do like him, but not for what he's going to want.

    I wouldn't mind seeing some young safety depth especially at SS. Someone that can actually cover well. I still think that they need to solidify this line for many reasons. Stewart was terrible, and Locker is back. They need to give him all of the tools possible to truly see if this dude is worthy of staying..(I don't think it will matter long term). I do like us getting a Tackle in the draft, but not at number 1, and we can't afford more projects.

    Locker now has good pocket awareness, he's not CJ, he can get by with sub-par blockers as he did all of 2013. Turner, Warmack, and Stewart were awful pass blockers.
