View Full Version : If the draft was today?

So if we drafted today who do we take? I think Chicago would have around the 10-15 pick range.

For me it's got to be an offensive lineman, specifically a guard. Our interior lineman have been getting manhandled and we see what Orton does under pressure.

Ya.. who is the best guard available middle of the first round?

I'm all for upgrading the interior of the OL. That said, we can get an outstanding prospect in the 2nd. Right now I'd take one of two Bama players in the first - Rolando McClain at ILB or Terrence Cody at NT.

Guards aren't top half of the 1st round positions.

They still need help in the Front 7.

Sign Mankins and draft Cody. :thanku:

Bring on Mt. Cody. My only worry is his conditioning. But you can't have an effective 3-4 defense without a dominant NT. You end up playing more of a 5-2 like we have, despite how good Fields has been.

If Eric Berry is still around in the middle of the 1st (he won't be), get him. That guy is a gamechanger, almost like Polamalu was in college.

McClain would be an awesome pick.

If the Bears pick low in the first round, I think we should seriously look at Norwood from South Carolina. That guy is a beast.

Elite interior Olineman can be found in the 2nd and 3rd, which is a good thing to have.

Agreed. I will go ahead and call Broncos HQ.

We have a lot more holes than our record indicates. QB, HB, WR, interior OL, DL, LB and CB are all positions we need help at.

Right now the problem with this team is at QB. I hate to say it like that but it's true. This is the same team that was great pass blocking for Jay Cutler. Orton has no pocket awareness and instead of making a defender miss in the pocket when they break through, he runs right into them.

I WOULD LOVE to upgrade the lines this draft. There is a lot of front 7 depth on defense and solid players on the OL. Unfortunately I think we have to find a QB first and foremost.

Champ showed his age a little bit last night which is understandable, so CB is a spot where we need to start developing talent. He's in his 11th year. Goodman isn't young either and now we cut JMFW for an even older Ty Law. This will become an issue soon. Champ's contract is also up in 2 seasons.

We need some playmakers opposite of Dumervil.

Draft Foneco!

You're only taking a tackle in the top half of the first round, late first through the second round is where we can hopefully take a road grater guard. We still have plenty of needs on defense, enjoy the BPA!

Our strategy is clear. Travel back in time and draft Ed Reed, Vernon Davis, and Bj Raji.

While I don't think Orton is our long term issue, I don't know if drafting a QB is our biggest concern. We've seen Orton perform well when he is not having to run for his life and with the current state of the interior line, specifically Hamilton and Casey, that's exactly what he is doing.

I guess I agree that drafting a G or C in the middle of the first is too high, but I don't know what else we could get. Certainly Cody will not be there and I disagree with you about RB and WR being a need. Moreno is a rookie, he will get better and our WRs will be fine. Royal and Marshall are young and I think McKinley will turn out to be a good slot guy.

I guess I could see us going LB or CB if a great DL is not available. We certainly need to address our aging secondary and Davis is no spring chicken himself.

How do you draft 2 players that you never had a shot at in the first place?

we dont need WR, CB, or LB help in the early rounds, regardless of what some say.

MAYBE qb though unlikely, OL, DL.

Simple. When you go back in time, you invisibly spill coffee on every War Room big board and 40 yard split times. :thanku:

Thats the problem with what you said. Drafting by need is often not the best way to help your football team.

Id like to see them draft either Cody, Spikes, or McClain assuming, we're drafting 10-19.

Is it wrong for me to like Spikes more after an attempted eye gouge?

I would love to take Eric Berry, but I think he will be gone.

My current list of possibilities: Tim Tebow, Terrence Cody, Arthur Jones, Rolando McClain, and Brandon Spikes



then perhaps Mike Iupati, Guard out of Idaho in the 2nd if we don't fix the line via free agency. Wouldn't take a guard in the first.

Crazy that Malaluga slipped to the 2nd.

No way I'd ever want Tebow.
