I use this board but feel free to use your own:
NFL Draft - 2010 Draft Prospects - CBSSports.com - NFLDraftScout.com
Shooting from the hip
#22 - Jerry Hughes, OLB/DE, TCU
- addresses most obvious need
- thought process, plays 3rd downs in year one
#44 - Aaron Hernandez, TE, Florida
- offensive playmaker
- thought process - becomes the lightening to some stiff's Crumbler's thunder at the TE position
#47 - Kareem Jackson, CB, Alabama
- adds a good (not great player) to the secondary
- thought process, might as well have a good secondary for once
#53 -Trade to Dallas for Marcus Spears
- thought process, have to feed the beast, always a need at DLine
Look to add more competition at LB and a developmental WR in the later rounds. Maybe a player like Hardy drops who could be tapped to replace Jarvis Green.
Good work to put this together Cousin. I don't agree with all of your picks but I like the thought process of moving a Draft pick which is at best, an unknown quantity, for an NFL proven younger player.
I would rather trade #22 for one or the other of these two;
1A=WR Brandon Marshall. We are instantly better with a core young talented WR. The Broncos require a #1. This would not upset me to give up this pick. He's better than anyone on the board at #22. We all know the story of his downside. You don't know what can happen to any of these Drafted kids either. Look at Big Ben. Who saw that one coming. Sometimes the devil you know is better than the one you don't.
1B=DE/OLB Ray Edwards. Again an on the rise young talent. They say his D-Line made him better. To say that Vince and Warren are not good D-Line partners is a "Vince-slap".11 Sacks in the last 11 games including play-offs. There has to be at least some talent. RFA price is a first rounder(second and fourth perhaps?)
I like Cody at #44. If you think about it he is the only real game changer in the Draft. You have to game plan to go around him, not push us tight up the middle versus the Ravens in the play-offs. You can move Vince wide and he will still play well. Mayo makes more tackles etc.
#47. I think Hughes is available. I would use this pick. We need a 5 tech DE just as bad. Wooten could also be considered. That kid can play and on his way back from a 2008 ACL. If we don't not get a Brandon Marshall WR, we might use this pick to go WR Demaryius Thomas if we go 1B with Edwards in my scenario RFA at #22.
#53 can go many ways. Again pending on what happen at #22 in my (IMO) scenario, I think an under the radar, BB being BB pick might be RB Toby Gerhart. He is moving up the boards and surpassing some of these other RBs. Every one of them has fleas in this year RB class.
But regardless of us picking up Crumpler we still need at TE. I say spend it wisely on Greg Olsen. If you would spend a #44 on Hernandez why not a 60 reception , 8 TD 25 year old kid who is a proven NFL player? That would take some pressure of of Welker and Moss instantaneously.
My plan "1C" here would be SILB the dropping Brandon Spikes, He and Mayo would be a great tandem. Bruschi was said to be too slow at about a 4.87 40. I can't find Ted Johnson's numbers but I am sure he was not any faster. Spikes was timed at the best a high 4.9's. Can he make plays?
Trade #22 WR Marshall
#47 OLB Hughes
Trade #53 TE Olsen or Draft RB Gerhart
Trade #22 RFA DE/OLB Ray Edwards
#44 DT Cody
#47 WR Demaryius Thomas
Trade #53 TE Olsen or (1C) Draft ILB Spikes
Just a thought.
