Curry and Raji will be long gone I think ... Curry might even be the #1 overall to the Lions, if the rumors they're gonna wait to draft a QB until 2010 are correct.

OT, but to me it shows just how differently some prospects are approaching their future:

Don't forget about Everette Brown. I would def. put Brown in before Raji. I'm not sold on Raji, and Brown would instantly give us our own version of Terrell Suggs, which would instantly help our pass-rush and hopefully lead to some erratic throws and many sacks.

So the E. Brown people see him playing WOLB, right? or will he be a DE in a 3-4?

I think there are going to be a lot of busts in the first round(more so than normal), I hope we find a guy that fits our system and is an instant impact.

WOLB or SOLB. I don't think he would be very successful at DE.

If you watch his highlights, he looks like a good 3-4 OLB prospect (not a 3-4 DE).

If we run a hybrid, he can also be a great 4-3 pass rushing D-end. He looks like he could do both, which makes him a potentially valuable target for a team that might do both.

While I think that Raji would fit a need.... I just dont see the impact that we desprately need from him. He will take years to develope. I also think his bust factor is huge. I will break something If we draft this guy.... it will be Moss2 all over again.

Our pick has to be a defensive player.

1A) Curry (pipe dream) would solidify our LB's
1B) Orakpo -huge upgrade from Engelberger
2) Rey Rey - a position to be an immediate impact
3) Jenkins - great value at 12 and would be able to play safety or CB.

I'm interested in this one Kaylore - why Okrapo?

I watch a lot of big 12 football, and he just didn't drop my jaw. He looks like Crowder did at Texas. He could beat some guys up with his bullrush, but not much else.

Would you see him as a 3-4 DE? I think his skill set matches the DE, but his size might say OLB. Tell me what you see in him?

Here is in my top 5 players I think we could take at 12 before FA.

1. Curry
2. Raji
3. Rey Rey
4. E. Brown
5. McCoy/Wells

I would love to have Curry at 12, but I haven't seen a mock draft this month that has him falling out of the top 10.

I'm obviously in the minority in this thread, but you watched Big 12 and weren't impressed? Didn't he win defensive player of the year as well as the Lombardi award and some other such awards? I think he's the opposite of Crowder. Crowder was my third to least favorite DE coming out of school. Unathletic and boring. Orakpo was nicked up his junior year. He's explosive and very athletic. He's the perfect size for a 3-4 OLB but can move like a Sam in space. I think he'd be a great pick up. Mayock has him as the number 2 OLB. That's enough for me. I like him more than Brown.

as a big 12 guy I watched Orakpo as well he was a little better than Crowder IMO but he did play better as the competition was better but not #12 better

Yep, rounds 3-5 should still have some good quality RB talent. One of these guys will probably be a real gem.
