I voted for 2. Only because it's the truth.

I'm sure we could trade up to get Johnson but i doubt it will happen if we get Surtain trading that #2 pick but damn itd be worth it to get surtain!

I don't have the feeling for him that I did for Derrick Thomas since being an Alabama fan also ,I had followed during his time at Bama but I would love to have him more than any linebacker since Derrick . I think he is going to be a great NFL linebacker . He reminds me in some ways of Derrick . Having said this , I don't think there is anyway we will move up and get him , but wouldn't it be great if we did . Go Chiefs !!!!

It would be nice, but only if we land Surtain/Law first.

If Carl botches a deal with both of them a 1st round CB is a must...

No he didn't. He said Go Chiefs. There is a difference.

I voted no. I'm in the Shawn Merriman camp, now.

He should have just said shithead and covered both of them.

From what I've seen of DJ, he's a good LB, but I'm not sure if he's going to be as great as what everyone is speculating. If he's still on the board when we pick or even if we swapped our first and a second day pick or two to move up to get him I'd be OK with it. I wouldn't be for trading all of our first day picks to move up for him though.

When DV first got here he pointed out that some teams were paying one LB more than all three of the Patriots LBs make. I don't look for him to sign any high dollar LBs.

A better poll would be:

Surtain and a 1st round pick at #15

vs.

Law and Derrick Johnson & no 2nd round pick

vs

Some other FA's and our current #1 & #2 picks.

This guy is being compared to Ray Lewis and Lavar Arrington...He's gonna be GOOD. If he gets past #5 we have a shot. I know its a long shot for TN , but they cant afford to pay the signing bonus at #6 so they will look to trade down . We're a little far even with our plethera of 2nd day picks but #9 Washington only has 5 picks in the draft total and they can fill their needs at 16 and would be happy to pick up a pick or two.Maybe they would even take a 3 second day picks? either way if he slips past TN at 6 nobody else really needs him till 10 , and Merriman fits their needs better.

You may be right, but I think DV has learned since that his thinking at the time was flawed.

Merriman has some ties "to" LaVar

Ok, but I'm directing any of the "do we need another DJ poll" your way...
