This is mine, but I think I'd like to trade back and add picks. I'm assuming Suh will be gone.

Rolando McClain, ILB, Alabama
Dez Bryant, WR, Oklahoma St.
Brandon Claussen, QB, Notre Dame
Dan Williams, NT, Tennessee
Carlos Dunlap, DE/OLB, Florida

depends on a ton of factors, including what we do with marshall and what FA signings we get.

brandon claussen does not exist, jimmy does, and the twitter scout guy said no one is really impressed with him at all as far as a franchise QB.

assuming the top 3 players in the draft, IMO, are gone (Suh, McCoy, Berry)


McClain
Bradford
Price


Considering we gave up a no.1 to get Smith I would be kind of upset if we got Haden. It has to be a front 7 player unless Josh wants to go QB. If Marshall is gone, then Bryant becomes an option. But the optimist in me says that won't be necessary

None because they will trade down, and I hope get the LG from Idaho and with the pick from trading Marshall, the C from (Alabama? the big 300+ pounder).

I'm going to take a lot of **** the whole off-season because I am a firm believer that C.J. Spiller might be the best player available when we are selecting in the first-round. I know that we drafted Knowshon, but what C.J. could do as a receiver, runner and returner on this team is extremely valuable. Our offense needs more of a spark, and I think he could be it. I know people will be absolutely livid if we draft him, but I think he's an extremely rare playmaker who can have tremendous success in the NFL.

I love the player, have since the first time I saw him run the ball. He is electric, any time he touches it he can go the distance. I would not be upset if we drafted him. But, I just don't think we will after taking a running back in the 1st last year. We aren't the Detroit Lions... I hope

dont see spiller falling to us and if he did i could see a team trading up to get him, after seeing what chris johnson can do teams will do everything they can to replicate it.

I've been saying that I see Spiller being one of the best players in this draft. He definitely has the most upside.

I agree completely! Ya gotta draft the best player available and if he is there, then we have to draft him. He is a beast!

I love Spiller too, but I'd be hesitant about drafting him due to Moreno's presence. But right now at #10, I don't see a clear pick, with the possible exception of McClain, and I'd prefer to acquire a SILB later as a two-down prospect.

One guy I'm waiting for the combine on is Dunlap. He could weigh in anywhere from 270-295 lbs. I'm not sure if he's got 3-4 DE potential or not yet.

I don't think you'd hear too much complaining about a Spiller pick. Like you said, he could very well be the BPA, and his speed would bring a new dimension to the offense. If Marshall's traded, we're going to need playmakers and Spiller fills the bill.

Beyond that, most of the guys I'm high on are later 1st round picks, like Dan Williams, Iupati, Cody, Golden Tate, Odrick, and Jahvid Best (although the concussion worries me). Any or all of that list could be available from pick 25 on. Earl Thomas is another guy that I'd like to see on our D, but I'm not sure there's a lot of room at Safety with Dawkins, Hill, McBath, Bruton, and Barrett already in the mix.

I'd like to see us trade down and just stock up on big uglies on both sides of the ball. McClain would be okay with me though.

Dunlap is definitely a 4-3 power end, he plays with penetration which is not the typical MO of a 3-4 end, I would say he might fit better as a rush OLB in an aggressive 3-4 like the San Diego or Dallas style.

I would like Spiller, but we would end up in a situation a few years down the line of having to pick between one of our 1st round RBs and letting the other one skip town unless one of them busts in which case the decision is made for us. I would not want to be in that position.

I would prefer to bring in help to the defense or passing offense with that 1st round pick.

I'm interested to see how Dan Williams performs at the Senior Bowl. With Peria Jerry last year and Sedrick Ellis before that dominating there and then having their draft stock rise, I wonder if that could put him into consideration at 10/11?

Berry will be long gone, but Jones wouldn't be a bad choice either. It's a little bit of a catch-22 this year. We're in better shape at Safety than we've been in years, but there doesn't appear to be a high-end talent after Dawkins leaves. The Safety class is loaded this year and there's a good chance a Safety will be the BPA at some point in the first 3 rounds. Is it worth it to grab one of these guys, even if it means pushing out one of the current Safeties?
