    How would you guys feel about drafting Cunningham with our #18. He Ran a 4.61 40 at the combine and posted some Nasty stats playing on a bad Vanderbilt team. He could play ILB and cover at a higher lvl than we have now.

    He's a damn good player. I won't be upset if we take him at 18

    I think I like Cunningham, need to watch more tape to really know.

    You gonna love when he dives or bends and misses tackles too often.

    Only knock I saw was hes a bit of a finesse player. Rather have my linebackers play like a mean junk yard dog than a Safety, but it looks like he has good instincts for the ball.

    What's the thought on Hasaan Reddick? I've seen a mock of us taking him at #18, but don't know much about him.

    I think #18 is early for him. 2nd round option for sure tho (once we trade for a 2nd rounder;))

    I watched a lot of Vandy games on the net last year. He looks good but I do get the impression that he was flattered a little by what was around him and I was left with the feeling that he may not be the impact player at NFL level as he is in college. #18 is too early IMO , needs to be around 7 or 8 spots lower. At that value he is a good pick-up for someone.

    My opinion by the way is based purely on Cunningham and not the fact that I would , despite his troubles , like us to draft Foster. After his issues HE ... could , be there at #18.

    Appears that he's a 3-4 OLB. Sounds like someone lazy just saw LB and sent him to us in a mock.

    I'm just trying to look for guys after Cunningham and Foster if neither are available. Apparently Jarrad Davis from Florida is a pretty explosive ILB.

    I just don't see a ton of depth with the ILB class this year though. Only about 4 guys who are in the top 100. Wouldn't really hate grabbing Foster at #5 if we can't move back. Not sure Cunningham will be there at #18.

    CB/S/TE have a ton of depth in this draft, we can stand to get them later.
