    Von Miller is front 7.

    And let's be realistic... no one is expecting Peterson to be there at #8. If he is, we're taking him.

    Whoops, I thought he said DL w/ first. MY B.

    & yeah, Peterson will be gone. No way he makes it past San Fran.

    If the FO really believes a WR is going to be pro bowl caliber I don't think you pass on him if he is the BPA. As stated it opens things up for CJ, Britt and Cook. I also like Jones over Green because Jones has a little more speed but I'd leave that up to the experts. IMO right now Britt is very difficult to handle one on one. Put another guy who can't be handled one on one opposite him and everything just opens up. No 8 man fronts anymore for CJ and a guy like Cook will have all kinds of room in the middle of the field.

    Now if we go that route I'd prefer we use a pick next year on Kolb or Orton. Get one of those guy in to distribute the ball. We can fill some holes on defense with other draft picks and FAs and be a darn good team IMO.

    Von Miller is a LB. LB is front 7 defense. I'd love to get Von Miller in here. And as much as I'd love Peterson, the value he brings isn't nearly enough for what we need out of the first round. We have 2 good CBs and a good return guy...though he'd be an upgrade in either category, it's not depth we're looking for, it's starting talent. We have 1 good DT and desperately need another, and our whole LB corps needs to be beefed up.

    Seems like this years top 10 picks are all about the same, except that at 8, we don't have to over pay who we pick. You can defiantly draft a difference maker 1-10 this year.
