    Ok, guys, I'm going to try to bring in videos and analysis of the players slated to be options for us at the draft...

    I'm start with a player that probably won't be available, but is a personal dream of mine, and of a lot of people.

    CJ Spiller - RB - Clemson

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SFcecMcS6bA]YouTube - C.J. Spiller Highlights[/ame]

    Later I'm going to post more videos or the analysis, as well as the other players'.

    BTW, anyone who wants to contribute with some information, do some players' thread, or ask for a player, is more than welcome.

    Charles Brown already has a thread, so I'm not going to start another one...

    I'd be doing back flips if we got Spiller. An explosive all-around guy that would help out our special teams and would make for a good scat back. He has so much value.

    There is quite literally no way Spiller falls to us.

    Only way we get him is if we trade up.

    It's a deep draft, so who knows if he does. It does seem unlikely he would drop to our slot, but there are always a few guys who do drop in the 1st. I remember reading some info on Oher last year and how he was a great prospect and he dropped a fair amount in the 1st.

    A lot of mock drafts and analysis say that since the Jags don't really have any true player worth of value at no. 9, they are most likely to trade down. Is it possible that the packers take advantage of this? If we do trade up with the jags, should spiller be an option?

    Aren't them at 10?

    I only see one option that the Jags can take in the first, and that is Tebow. Mainly for monetary purposes.

    But we can't predict what TT will do. Just when we were figuring him out, that he would drop down every draft, he goes on and move up. (To me, it was because he was done rebuilding, so there was no need to get more players)

    I think there's a possibility, but I wouldn't expect it.

    And if he'd move up, the players I would look for, in the order: Joe Haden; Russel Okung; Eric Berry; CJ Spiller.

    From those, the most talented is Berry; But he is a FS, not a SS.

    Oh, for the record, I'm not posting any measurables, like 40 time, or even stature, because the combine and pro day will provide those more accurately...

    If Thompson moves up, I really want it to be for Joe Haden, even as pro-running back as I am.

    I'm making a Haden thread later, just based on that slim possibility. Unless someone else feels like doing it. :lol:

    That would be awsome. If we moved up to get Haden I think it would make sense as long as we got a OT in the 2nd round. Maybe you could change the Kyle Wilson thing to Joe Haden...LOL

    Spiller ran a 4.37 today. He was the second fastest behind Best who ran a 4.35. Keep in mind Spiller is still battling a turf toe issue. He is a 15-27 range guy in round 1.

    If you guys are able to land Spiller...that offense will be even MORE dangerous to stop

    I know the guy is good, but we need to actually draft for needs this year. O-line,Safety/CB, OLB,........and a Punter. A speedy return man as well. I don't think I'd draft a RB in the 1st round and put him on returns where he is going to get killed. Look at just about every guy we have used in recent years. They all end up.......Jacked up in some way........broken legs, feet, ankles.....you name it. Just my opinion.

    Good point, about people getting hurt at the KR job...

    But I believe it's undeniable that he would add another dimension to our team, as well as a great improvement at ST play...
