Things Were Set Up So Nice.

Two months ago, our draft looked beautiful. We need an edge rusher and this draft was one of the deepest in memory.

At #8, we had Gregory, Fowler, Beasley, and Ray. The draft looked like two QB's and two WR's would be drafted ahead of us. Dupree was the ace in the hole, in case things did not go our way.

Now, Ray and Gregory have been linked to weed and will be entered into the NFL drug policy protocol. If both of those WR's don't get picked ahead of us, we could be left with no real top ten edge rusher.

I can't believe that I am about to write this, but Todd Gurley may actually be our best value pick!

If Dupree, Beasley, Fowler and Williams are off the board, we will not have an edge rusher worth the pick.

Would a WR be a wise choice? Probably not. An OG, not really? Here is the CBS draft prospect ranking. It looks a lot like most media outlets.

1 *Leonard Williams DT

2 *Jameis Winston QB 1

3 *Marcus Mariota QB 2

4 *Amari Cooper WR 1

5 *Dante Fowler Jr. OLB

6 Vic Beasley OLB 2

7 Kevin White WR 2

8 Brandon Scherff OT 1

9 *Trae Waynes CB 1

10 Danny Shelton DT 2

11 *Todd GurleyInjured RB

12 DeVante Parker WR 3

13 Alvin Dupree DE 1

14 *Melvin Gordon RB 2

15 *Andrus Peat OT 2

16 *Randy Gregory DE 2

17 *Breshad Perriman WR

18 La'el Collins OT 3

If we don't trade out of our position, Gurley may be the best fit on the board.

Now it looks like we may have to do something that a lot of people won't like. And that's to trade up. We have to get an edge rusher but with the recent things that have gone on (Gregory,Ray) that just elevates Beasley up the draft boards that much more. Maybe we do just sit tight and hope he falls to us or take the GAMBLE and get Dupree. This is actually a tough draft to figure out even though there is a lot of talent

If Beasley and Fowler are gone Gregory would be my choice. I also think we're still in a nice position to trade down to the mid teens with a team that wants one of the top 3 WRs and still land Gregory or Ray as long as we haven't removed them from our board. I know both these guys made some dumb decisions but I think taking one is a risk worth taking. Espically if we can trade down and nab one.

Dupree is not worth a pick
