As we get closer to the draft, I study more and more. I differ with most of the members in that I think fixing the OL is the first order of business. I've studied the top OT;s and I'm really sold on Isaiah Wynn. I know that the writers say he'll be moved to OG because he's only 6'3'' b ut I've watched enough of him to be sold - SOLD. If we could draft him our OL would be one of the best in the league.

I don't think I'd stick with taking an OT in the first for any of the other top rated OT's in this draft. If Wynn is already picked. I'd go for help at LB. I'd go for a couple of LB's high in this draft - I see that as a big need.

Anything is possible especially this year with multiple quarterbacks coming out and the talk of possible trade ups. I saw the NFL Network predicting Derrius Guice go as high as 13 to the Redskins. I'd be surprised if James fell to us.

I keep reading that James won't be a perfect fit for us and we would have to work him in somehow?Any truth to that?

James is a really dynamic player that can be used all over the place. They may mean that he’ll have to be “worked in” because we already have a good SS in Addae.

With all the dime defenses Bradley runs, James would definitely be "worked in." Heck, he's so good, leave James in as a kind of hybrid safety/coverage LB!!!

Yeah was just curious if this would be a luxury pick even though I don't mind adding as many elite players to the team as possible kinda feel like we really are a few holes upgraded away from serious contention.

It is absolutely a luxury pick IMO.

Lamp, Allen, Cam Robinson, and Malik McDowell went lower than many thought they would last year.
I just don't think a safety can ever dominate the game they way an elite DL or LB can. Therefore I feel James or Fitzpatrick are much more likely to fall than Edmunds. Also expect the top corner in Ward off the board ahead of James the way Lattimore was over Hooker.

i heard twice that minkah is falling because they see his versatility working against him as he's not a slam dunk to excel at any one spot
id be very happy to roll the dice

QB, Edge Rushers and OT are the three positions most in demand, so if there is a feeding frenzy with some last minute trade-ups at these positions, expect a lot of really good players to unexpectedly fall. This is where some teams reach, like what TT did with Fluke when the 3 best OT's went off the board in the top 10. So, since DT and ILB are ranked #6 and #9 in demand, this benefits us. Expect to see some top talent at DT and ILB fall right into our lap...

Here's an article about importance of position in draft:
