    Who is your 2012 Draft Binky?

    Mine is Vinny Curry DE Marshall.

    The guy is a beast. If we cant get mario williams. I say we take Curry in the second round.

    I've narrowed it down to 3 must haves:

    - Devon Still
    - Amini Silatolu
    - Harrison Smith

    I liked Devon Still and Courtney Upshaw early in the season. They seemed to play their way out of our reach. Both appear to be losing the Underwear Olympics. Hope we can snag both now. Keep an eye on Bernard Pierce - rb - Temple. If we lose BJGE, can probably get him in the 4th.

    Can we define binky? I think it's somebody that we HAVE to draft, but is also easily achievable. For exapmle, Russell Wilson can be a binky, but Andrew Luck cannot, unless you are a Faggy colts fan.

    My MUST DRAFT binkies. I call them the Elites.

    All good choices. Silatolu would be awesome; a road grader. I have to believe that Smith is on the Patriots radar; he seems like a Patriots type of player.

    Shea McClellin, OLB, Boise State classic case of a player with great production who is tagged as not athletic until he lights up the combine.

    (33.0 tfl and 20.5 sacks) Production is a better predicator of NFL impact than potential.

    The classic definition of a binky is a player you fall in love with and simply want on the team, regardless of logic, need, etc.

    Agree with this. I've been trying not to say too much about McClellin on the boards, hoping that he stays under the radar. I have him slotted for the Pats at #48... would be great.

    My latest wish list, constantly changing...

    27 - DL Devon Still
    31 - SS Mark Barron
    48 - OLB Shae McClellin
    63 - OG Kevin Zeiter
    95 - WR Ryan Broyles

    #1 Kendall Wright, WR/KR this guy is the next steve smith of the panthers + he can return kicks something the pats need bad,

    #2 Dontari Poe, DT/NT big body good vs the run and would be a perfact fit playing next to Wilfork in the big 4-3

    #3 Brandon Taylor, FS i think this kid has with the pats need a safety with some speed to play center field,

    #4 Peter Konz, C i would love if he's there at #27 when the pats pick he is going to be very good at the next level,

    #5 Trent Richardson, RB i think he will be long gone by the time the pats pick but who ever gets him is going to have a 1000 yard RB for the next 5+ years

    Diversity is what BB likes. I will throw mine for thought:

    Zack Brown, but not as an OLB. Might be the best Safety in the Draft that no one has considered. Has superb coverage skills, can blitz and was timed at Carolina at a 4.28 hand held and holds 60 meter records in the school at 6'1" and 232lbs. He has lose hips and excellent change of direction. He tracks the ball well and had three INT's in 2011. Please tell me a better safety in this class. He changes and redefines the position like LT did when BB was at the NYG. BB does not use a FS or SS. Brown could be a Hybrid S/WLB but more of a "rover". He has Ed Reed skills only bigger and faster. He plays sideline to sideline. A project and waste as a OLB pick but a genius move BB new breed of super Safety.

    Jared Crick. A more talented Wright whom BB appreciated. Now recovering from a pec. Can play DT or DE. Explosive. Could have been a top 15.

    Vinny Curry OLB/DE. Look at his plays and stats. If he was not at Marsall he was far and away the best DE. We like Marshall guys.

    If we go 4-3 he fits on the edge and 3-4 he can drop decently. He is all motor.

    Coby Fleener. Why Draft a WR when this guy adds to the mix of our TE's? Everyone likes Sanu. This guy is bigger( 6'6" and 256 and a former B ball player), faster and is protection if Gronk or Hernandez walk after next year or are injured in 2012, where he can take those plays. He can play TE, WR, H-Back and he blocks better than our #2 TE Hernandez. Another guy with many positions of diversity and drives DCs crazy with the many options. If he runs in the 4.6 range in his pro day he will be a first round pick. We need a third TE anyway. Let's utilize this kid.

    Three of my binkies have had videos added to Youtube:

    Jamell Fleming:

    Jamell Fleming vs. Texas A&M / Iowa State (2011) - YouTube

    An interception, three pass breakups and a forced fumble (over two games). Again excellent in man to man, the only receptions he gives up are when he's giving up a cushion with Oklahoma 20+ points up. My only nitpicky critique is that he gets blocked by WR's fairly easy. Still, with McCourty's m2m limitations, Fleming would be an excellent addition as part of a 3 man outside rotation and would allow McCourty more time inside at S.

    Marvin Jones:

    Marvin Jones vs Texas 2011 - YouTube

    He's not going to be a No 1 type but looks to be an excellent Branch replacement: great cuts on his routes, really strong hands and the thing I love about him, great sideline awareness which I think demonstrates good intelligence for playing the position. Makes me think his chances of succeeding where so many others have failed is good.

    Mychal Kendricks

    Mychal Kendricks vs Texas - YouTube

    To be fair, this isn't his best. I love to watch his Ray Lewis type intensity and he was one of the stars of the combine but at 5'11, 240, I just don't see him getting picked. He gets blocked too easily, needs to play alongside a big bruiser inside but he is superb at picking his way through traffic to make the play. Very good instincts.

    Just thought I'd share.

    Nick Perry from USC. Jake Bequette to a lesser extent.

    So far my wild guesses have been pretty accurate. I liked Dunlap, Matthews, Watt, Aldon Smith, but I also liked Gholston and Chris Long so...:bricks:

    Haven't narrowed it down to one:

    Michael Floyd
    Mark Barron
    Too many OLBs who we probably won't pick anyway

    If it makes you feel any better, Chris Long just had a really, really good year (13 sacks). He's actually been pretty solid for St Louis over the past couple years (8.5 sacks last year, full time starter), and they like him a lot. He just had to adjust to the pro game.

    Still wish we had been in a position to choose Smith, but that's water under the bridge.

    I've been flirting with Hightower for a while. Now it's starting to get a little more serious. I've been trying to date others but it seems that I still go back to Hightower.

    I still haven't given my heart to him, as I have been hurt before. But he more I look the more I like.
