    I meant more the fact its a weak class this year rather than our obvious need to draft one within the next few years

    I never start researching players properly until after the season ends but I'd like to get the following in the first 3 rounds .

    TE
    DL (probably DT but DE if we don't resign Flowers).
    WR
    S

    The wildcard is QB. If there is one there that Bill likes, I say get him over any other position.

    CBS is mocking Texas de Omenihu to us in the first round. I think this would be an excellent pick for us.

    He has ideal size and done pass rush skills and he can set the edge in the running game.

    Lawrence would fill a huge hole in the defensive line since brown and Shelton are free agents.

    Bb loves the veterans, so I expect him to sign at least one run stuffing DT, not named Wilkerson.

    Just started watching tape and Lawrence was my first watch. My feeling was that he has BB pick written all over him. So tough to move in the run game and takes double teams for fun. He might not get the production himself but he’s going to enable the rest of the DL/LBs to play. I would not be disappointed with him at 32 at all.

    I'd love to double dip at TE this year, even if Gronk doesn't retire. Lots of talent there this year, one guy you should all look at is - Keenan Brown

    Sadly they all keep moving up the draft boards. Wilkins and hockenson both seem to be in the top 15 range right now. I've seen Sternberger get some love as well. Not 1st round love, but he's moving up.

    I hope guys like Fant and Irv Smith knock it out the park at the combine, then maybe hockenson can fall to us at 32.

    Wilkins is gone. That khalen saunders dude looks interesting as a 2nd or 3rd round guy. Insane athleticism and speed for his size. Lots of dt's in this draft.

    Which is probably right, but 'at the moment' is the key phrase. He was dominant at the senior bowl and pops on tape. The guy can do a standing back-flip, so I think it's safe to assume, that he's going to test well.

    I just think that many draft copies of the guys who are having succes in the league. Hockenson's draft stock probably hasn't suffered from the success of kittle. Likewise, everybody wants a new Aaron Donald, and while he's not Donald, he has some Donald-like traits.

    My ideal draft for the first 3 rounds would be:
    1.32 TJ Hockenson, TE Iowa
    2.56 J.J. Arcega-Whiteside WR, Stanford
    2.64 Jerry Tillery DT, Notre Dame
    3. 73 Amani Hooker, S, Iowa
    3. 97 Josh Oliver TE, San Jose State
    3. 101 TJ Edwards OLB, Wisconsin

    Oh yeah I agree he’s athletically ridiculous, just don’t think he’d be that high up on our draft board for a 2/3rd pick. If he’s a 4th and 5th then yeah I’d take him.

    That's fair. It's still early - and I might wise up in the coming months - but I'd take him in the third. Second round might, after all, be too rich.

    I’d take him with our late 3rd comp. I have no problems with him! Reminds me of Adam butler a bit! Any other guys you like?

    Still early in the process, and I have not really looked at that many positions yet. Mostly TE.

    But here's a small list of guys that I like - It will change and a lot of guys will be added and removed over the next few months.

    QB: Don't really like any of them. If Brady actually does play till he's 45, then it might also be to early to draft an heir. Stidham in the mid to late rounds I'd be okay with, but as I said, don't really see that big of a need.

    TE: Love Hockenson. Love him, but I'm clearly not the only one, so he might be out of our reach. I also really like Jace Sternberger. There are a lot of TE's in this class, but for now those two are my favourites.

    WR: I really like Andy Isabella. Yes, he's small, but he's a playmaker. A mix of Julian and Hill. It's a deep class, haven't really looked at too many of them yet, I'm sure there'll be a few more binkies revealing themselves when I do.

    LB: I think I like guys like TJ Edwards and Joe Giles Harris, but I'm not sure there's a big need at the position.

    S: Taylor Rapp and Juan Thornhill are two I have on my list for now. Some youth would be welcome at the position.

    As I said, I haven't spent that much time going through the positions yet. However, It does look like it could be a really good draft to have 12 picks in - 4 in the top 75 and 6 in the top 100.
