[QUOTE=C Mart;3530827]JO, I'm not a college FB expert but what I've read I like picks 1, 2, 6...I know you are going the STs route but I'd like a 3-4 DE somewhere.[/QUOTE]
When you look at the age of the Dline, I think it is only prudent to start restocking in that area. Not tendering Douglas and Green says to me that they are looking to open up a roster spot to accomodate the drafting of a DE. I like Ropati Pitoitua, IMO Kroul,Steinkuler and Wright have a chance. The concensus pick, and a very safe pick is Odrick at 29. Lamarr Houston, Arthur Jones and Alualu of Cal would be great at 61, any one of those guys wearing green&White, I'm a happy camper.
Of course we don't draft again until the late fourth round, I see most of the competent DL guys off the board at that time, the guys left IMHO are not any better than Pito or Kroul etc.
Your valid arguement for a DE, can also be made for an Offensive Lineman, and to a lesser extent RB & WR. a lot will depend on how the board falls..
Thanks for your post.
