Should we still draft any of these LBs?

That's if we do sign Hartwell.

http://www.nfl.com/draft/story/8273061


1. Derrick Johnson, Texas, Outside

Positives: Speed, play-making ability, ball skills, instincts, ability to diagnose plays, tackling, height (6-foot-3), long arms … He is not only the best linebacker in the draft, but the best defensive player in the entire college crop, and his game-changing impact should make him a top-five pick.

Negatives: Handling running plays directed straight at him, upper-body strength.

2. Shawne Merriman, Maryland, Outside (underclassman)

Positives: Size (6-4, 272 pounds), pass-rushing, instincts, intensity, leaping ability, open-field tackling, outside run stopping … Although he surprised more than a few player personnel evaluators by electing not to work out at the National Scouting Combine, Merriman still offers enough elite talent as a pass rusher to be selected in the middle of the first round.

Negatives: Hand placement, ability to gain leverage on offensive linemen, vulnerability to play action.

3. Darryl Blackstock, Virginia, Outside (underclassman)

Positives: Initial quickness, change-of-direction skills, intensity, discipline, recognition skills … His talent is good enough for him to become a low first-round choice or early second-rounder.

Negatives: Lower-body strength, ability to gain separation from blockers, overall technique against the run.

4. Channing Crowder, Florida, Inside (underclassman)

Positives: Man-to-man coverage of running backs, intensity, instincts, big-hitting ability … He is very raw and probably should have remained in college for one more season to fully develop his skills, yet he does have the talent to likely become a second-round choice.

5. Kevin Burnett, Tennessee, Outside

Positives: Size (6-2, 239 pounds), speed, athleticism, man-to-man coverage of running backs, tackling … His stock didn’t suffer because of the calf injury that prevented him from working out at the combine; he should be a solid second-rounder.

Negatives: Recognition skills, closing speed as a pass rusher.




I'd vote NO. Although I wouldn't mind spending a lower round dc on Lofa wutzizname from SC. What round do you think he will go in the draft?

if certain guys fall to us we should grab them regardless ... johnson is one of those.

Braylon Edwards WR 6-3, 210 Michigan
Antrel Rolle CB 6-1, 205 Miami
Derrick Johnson LB 6-3, 242 Texas


after that, no ... we draft cornerbacks on day 1

Gotta go with no...


While Hartwell may be wishful thinking, Johnson at #15 is pure fantasy. Not gonna happen, so stop teasing me, please.

If we get Hartwell, draft Rodgers at #15 and the best CB remaining in the 2nd.

Would still want a veteran FA CB [after June 1st cuts?].

If we sign Hartwell, we wouldn't need another LB. We'd have a full complement of young LBs. In that case, we should look at CB/DE in the first, and the reverse in the 2nd round. JMO.

1- Carlos Rogers
2- Eric Green

That would be something. Wouldn't it?

You can never have too many solid LBs... that's Bowlen's mantra anyway.

DJ will be gone well before you guys draft.

I think the draft should work in a manner in which you have your options slotted where you pick and if they're available, go for it. However, if some gifted player falls to you and while he may not be of need, but he's better than what you were looking at.. you have to take him.

If Johnson fell to us, you have to draft him. Players with that much potential don't come around that often.

If we get another starting LB in FA, I say draft a DE in the first, and go CB in the 2nd.

Dunno where this love affair with Eric Green started. I did get to watch a pretty good amount of Va Tech's games, and although Green looked like a pretty good corner, I don't see him stepping in day 1 and making an impact.

No I have to agree with Hoov, if he is there, you have to take him and then consider trading Fuji.

If Rogers does, We can afford to bring Green up slowly. Bodes well for the future.

I could understand that, but it sounds like people want to throw him right into the mix off the bat. If you want to slowly bring a corner up, I think Webster would be the better 2nd round pick. He's much more athletic than Green and has a lot more potential.
