Default I know we need a LT but...

What if we were able to draft in the first round the one Samoan linebacker from Notre Dame in the first and take a LT in the second or later on, trade back into the first for a LT. Can you imagine that guy paired with Butler, Ingram and the rest of our guys. We would have the best LB core in the league for many years to come.

The only position I want to see beside LT in the first round is WOLB.

If we dont get a tackle in the first round(either LT or RT) I would want a CB

If we say, drafted a Jonathan Banks, I would be happy with the player, it just depends who is available.

I don't want to draft a CB early again this year, too many high draft picks spent on CBs. I'm hoping Gilchrist and Wright can step up next year.
2006 - Cro (1)
2008 - Cason (1)
2011 - Gilchrist (2), Wright (3)

That's like every other year, and it hasn't been paying off.

Taking a CB in the first is more of a luxury than BPA now a days.

If Banks or Milliner are there, it would be hard to pass up on them. We still don't know what our roster will look like come April, as we may sign a cb, thus making it not as much of a need. OT is still the biggest need, but olb and cb are up there.

Milliner isn't as good a scheme fit as Banks is for us.

With the QB/CB/OT/DT needy teams ahead of us, and one of them will probably take Teo, then we'd probably have our choice of OLB, which might be our biggest need if we don't resign Philips. All depends on who we are resigning. I'd be okay with resigning Cason since this season isn't going to make his contract bank breaking, and picking up another CB in FA or drafting one in the middle rounds. Gilchrist and Wright have to start earning their keep.

Yeah but those were low picks.
2006-Cromartie(19)
2008-Cason(27)
2011-not expected to be shut downs like the others were

We are picking at 11 and have a shot at the best CB in the draft. The guys in the past werent the top in their class
