Thank GOD we signed Dunta,now we shored up our CB position,so our draft will look like this:

RD1 we go B.Graham DE [i was torn between him and Spoon but i decided to go with him because we really need to fix our pass rush and he is a legit pass rusher and terrific against the run,plus he bulked up to the 270 mark]

RD3 we go D.Watson WLB [we really need an upgrade at the WLB spot and he fits the bill,he bulked up to the 240 mark and he ran a 4.53,he is a very fast sideline to sideline player and very good in coverage]

RD4 we go E.Olsen OC/G [our center for the future,he is very versatile,can play guard to,our type of lineman]

RD4 comp pick we go D.Sharpton MLB [you might say why a MLB that high,we got Lofton,but Sharpton is a very good MLB and we need to add depth at our LB position and he is the best available at that point]

RD5 we go D.Pitta TE [TE of the future,he just flat out make plays and catches every thing thrown in his area,he is also a very good blocker]

RD5 comp pick we go E.Wang OT [solid OT can play both RT and LT,he will back up Baker]

RD6 we go F.Barnes WR [i really like this guy,he's got good hands,good built,moves the chains,red zone threat and can make big plays down field,he will eventually take over for Jenkins]

RD7 comp pick we go B.Swenson K [we need a kicker and he is the best available at this point]

no way swenson lasts untill the end of the 7th. same with freddie barnes, he goes before sixth. Pitta is no where near a good blocker, have you ever seen him play? I would prefer AJ Edds in the third, and Spoon in the first. Graham is more of the prototypical 3-4 LB. Undersized for a 4-3 DE.

Graham is 268,so how is he undersized? 3-4 outside linebacker,he's coverage sucks!!

I like it. I think there is a chance that we go the route of DE in the 1st and WLB in the 3rd. And if we do Dekoda Watson would be one of better guys to look at there.

I would like to have another DT though. In a perfect world we would get a comp pick in the 3rd and Geno Atkins would fall that far

How tall is he? How do you know his coverage sucks? Have you watched all his games? Even if his coverage DID suck, which it does not, Ware, Merriman, Orakpo, Dumerville, all are not fantastic at coverage. It's all about rush OLB now.

RD1 we go B.Graham DE-i just hope he lasts this long. perfect pick though.

RD3 we go D.Watson WLB-love his athletic ability, hate his instincts/discipline, i dont want him.

RD4 we go E.Olsen OC/G-way too early for olsen for me.

RD4 comp pick we go D.Sharpton MLB-we only need one LB this year IMO. i dont like sharpton, late to the ball and small. not a punisher.

RD5 we go D.Pitta TE-i like pitta in this spot as well. will he be here?

RD5 comp pick we go E.Wang OT- i hate wang, he gets owned WAY too much for me.

RD6 we go F.Barnes WR [i really like this guy,he's got good hands,good built,moves the chains,red zone threat and can make big plays down field,he will eventually take over for Jenkins]could'nt agree more. love this guy here and his severe knee tendinitis may be why he drops this far.

RD7 comp pick we go B.Swenson K [we need a kicker and he is the best available at this point]i would be ok with a K here. generally prefer to sign undrafted, but a 7th rd comp pick aint far from that.

we are a 4-3 team,we run zone,and we don't really rush our LB's. Graham is 6-1 but height is not a problem.R.Mathis is 6-2 245 pounds and he does an outstanding job for the colts playing LDE,D.Freeney is 6-1 268, and so is Graham,so put it to rest there!!!!!

I like it, except for the Wang and Swenson picks. I like Everson Griffen a bit more than Graham, but that is only because I think Griffen has more upside. I would like to see Chris Scott instead of Wang. Scott is a RT/RG guy with tremendous girth. With that 7th round pick, I would probably look at a guy like UGA's Kade Weston or some other space eater with potential.

All said though, I think you did a real good job.

1- Nothing wrong with Graham in round 1 I don't think, but I am leaning more towards 'Spoon I think. Though I will not be angry in the least if we draft Graham.

3- Watson is a good athlete and seems to have had an impressive combine, but he has pretty questionable instincts (or at least it seemed that way when I watched him). If that is indeed the case then I don't think we will go in this direction. We have been consistently looking for smart, high effort players to get the maximum return on our draft pick investment, and for all Watson's athletic ability if he doesn't play smart I don't think we will end up picking him.

4- Olsen isn't a bad pick, I have been hoping for a future C for years to eventually replace McClure.

4- Not an awful idea to add some MLB depth, we could use a coverage specialist (at least I would like one) as backup to Lofton just to give us some flexibility.

5- Good pick

5- I really don't like Wang. I realize this is a late pick, but I think we can do much better than Wang. He looked absolutely awful in the Senior Bowl and he never impressed me when I watched him. I know we can do better than him for a backup OT.

6- Barnes isn't a bad player, but expecting him to eventually take over for Jenkins is wishful thinking in my opinion.

7- It would be nice if he lasted this long, but it's tough to project where kickers will end up going.

Overall it's not bad, but there were a couple picks I didn't like.
