    Correct. Plus a couple of possible comp picks for Watson and Green, so it's realistically at around 12.

    I know we said this last year, but would another 12 picks make this team?

    I reckon we should use some of these picks to get a player in this year. Maybe our 3rd for a pass-rusher

    If a rookie pay scale is put in place, 2011 could be the year to be aggressive and go after some players at the top of the draft that we really like. Imagine this (obviously optimistic) scenario:

    Our 1st round picks are 9 (Oak-1350 Pts) and 32 (I can dream right?-590 Pts).

    Our 2nds are 47 (Car-430) and 64 (270).

    If we had two players in the top 10 we really liked, we could trade 32, 47, and 64 to someone for the number 10 pick (1300 Pts) and go top heavy if we chose.

    Not saying we would do that, but that would be the limit to our flexibility (a jump from 32 to 10). That's assuming we won the SB, so if you assume we don't and have a pick in the mid 20's or so, the jump gets even easier.

    With a ton of rookies making the squad in two consecutive years, this might be the best opportunity (in hopefully a cost controlled environment) to pick up a couple of Seymour/Mayo level talents.

    Right now, a young Derrick Burgess would be our best pass-rusher.
