I'm still not a big fan of Raji at #12 since he isn't a NT, but I doubt he'll be around anyway.

I waver on this one, but the coaches have clearly stated that we might run a hybrid as we transition to the 3-4. Raji could definitely improve us in the middle, and he could have the time to learn how to play 3-4 NT. He is a good athlete, and should do well at NT if given the time to grow into it.

If he's there at #12, we should take him and not look back.

I like the idea of Raji, but I would want to bring in Hood or Brace to compliment him. But I agree, I doubt he'll be there at 12.

If he is, I'd choke on my tongue if we didn't draft him.

I wouldn't hesitate if he fell to us but there are other players that would be adequate in the later rounds

BJ will be there at 12 and Jay Cutler acts mature for his age...... Look the tooth fairy

Well ... at this time last year, everyone was SURE Clady would be gone by 12.

KEEP HOPE ALIVE!

I hear Raji scored 2 on the Wonderlic. Sometimes HOPE needs a little help.

Maybe we will draft him at 6 (jets have that I think). Jets 1st and 2nd for Jay. Well thats what some friends at work were talking about (and they wanted to draft Raji, so thought it would work here!)

Playing Hood at DE in the 3-4 and UT in the 4-3 would be pretty good. and putting BJ at NT in 3-4 and 4-3 would be great fits.

I agree , the Broncos could trade up with maybe jackson ville with our 3 rounder and 5 rounder to get Raji then draft Ziggy with 48 pick and sign Jason Taylor as a free agent.

I will do a happy drunken draft dance if he's available at 12. I'm thinking he goes somewhere between 5-9.
