    1st SS- Secondary desperately needs a ball hawk and someone to stop us getting constantly exposed by TE's or underneath routes. Right now Sanders isnt great IMO and we need someone to play alongside Merriweather for the next 5 years

    2nd - DE/OLB - I'd look for a prototype 3-4 OLB to take reps with Woods and Crable and hopefully play above them. I can see Vrabel moving back to ILB next year and taking less reps as Guyton/Mayo look the real deal as a long term pairing. Not conviced about woods and Crable is still an unknown

    2nd - OT - Decent Backup for either Kazcur or Light. Cant have Brady killed again

    3rd - CB - I dont think we keep O'Neal next year and im sure we go for a CB on FA but if we dont then we just load up here. esp if wheatley is always injured

    3rd - TE - If a decent route running TE drops this far we take him

    Of course if all this Cassel stuff is right we may end up with more 2nd's or even a 1st

    priorities don't always line up with who you draft when.......if you're going to take an OT at the end of round 2, you may be better off waiting until then to take an SS if the right OT is available when you draft sooner......

    but SS in the first round if moore or mays is available.....other wise you can wait and take a guy like myron rolle later in round 2

    #12 Jersey

    1.) OLB - Cushings of USC (closest thing to a competant OLB in this draft)
    2A.) OT - Jason Smith of Baylor (beast on the end of the line)
    2B.) TE - Coffman of Mizzu (hands and red zone offense)
    3A.) FS - Cook of South Carolina or Rolle of FSU (both really good in coverage)
    3B.) CB - Burnett of UCF (slightly larger clone of Samuel)
    4.) RB - Davis of Clemson (done in by the worse OL in college)
    5A.) OT/C - Unger of Oregon (versatile and nasty)
    5b.) OG - Urbik of Wisconsin (nasty!)
    6.) SS - Hamlin of Clemson (wicked hitter, needs help in coverage)
    7.) OLB/DE - Mathews of USC (great bloodlines)

    OLB Curry from Wake Forest
    or again there seems to always someone falling if a Rey from USC falls then I think you grab him. If a Moore From Missouri Falls u grab him.

    Herman Johnson LSU OG for the right hand side. I too like the OT out of Baylor.

    I also like Mickens out of Cincy and Rolle out of FSu (if he comes out)

    Would love to get Malcolm Jenkins at CB. Immediate starter IMO.

    I think that we really need pass rushers and some O-Line depth.

    1st round either a lineman (O/D, doesn't matter), or Orakpo if he's there.

    2nd round - SS. Chung would be my pick.
    2nd round - Cornerback.

    3rd round - Pass rusher.
    3rd round - TE.
    3rd round - Cornerback.

    Don't know much about these players except for what you are saying but I like it.Would move the TE down another round.
    DEFENSE and OL are our biggest needs. I know its been said; but you win on the lines.
