    Instead of looking at individual players I would look at where we should be looking each round.
    1st - top WR or RB
    2nd - WR, RB (whichever we didn't take in round one) or TE
    3rd - TE, Big DL
    4th - OT, DL
    5th -LB, OT
    6th - DB, LB
    7th - OL

    It all depends on who is available and how many trades TT makes.

    Yea we gotta get a killer safety in here. We need a Ed Reed/Troy Palamalu type.

    I would pretty much agree, although I think I high priority needs to be placed on DB, both corners(due to age/contract status/depth) and safety(due to ineptness). I think I would substitute DB for TE and move TE to LB.

    That being said, if the best player available when GB drafts in the 1st round happens to be a TE, QB, G, C I guess you cannot argue with taking that player over a lesser player at WR or RB.

    1st Safety or Corner
    2nd Safety or Corner (whichever not taken in 1st)
    3rd Wide Receiver
    4th O-lineman (whichever position looks bad by end of season)
    5th Tight End (I bet Scott Chandler is Free)
    6th DL
    7th Whatever else there is

    Merriweather is kind of a reach, but I think he is the best covering safety in the draft, he also played CB in college!

    Even with the leg injury I don't think Bush falls to round 2. Pends how he works out I guess but he should be healthy for workouts and back to full speed in times for workouts. Before the injury I thought he was a top 10 pick.

    I like Leon Hall from Michigan. One of the top Corners in the Draft if not the best. Had problems with Ted Ginn Jr. though so might have problems with the smaller fast receivers in the NFL. Santana Moss and Steve Smith come to mind.

    I actually feel the best Safety on this team is on IR right now. I really think Underwood is going to be the man next year. I don't see them spending a high pick on one because of Underwood.. I'd like to see a DE in either round 1 or 2 and maybe a TE. This team has a lot of holes left but their gettting there.

    Now the draft happens after free agency. A cheap safety will likely be picked up. Underwood, Collins, Culver are there and the new guy will compete with Manuel for a spot.

    With the age of Harris and Woodson free agency dollars won't be spent there but I think a first round CB will be a good pick.

    1. CB they are expensive and it is the cheapest way to get a good one.
    2. WR Ferguson will be cut and Donald isn't getting younger.
    3. RB RB of the future is needed.
    4. C Wells needs a backup; the guy may play OG if Colledge plays LT
    5. WR Someone has to compete with Ruvell and Francies.
    6. FB or LB Taylor likely gone and Miree is not Henderson's replacement.
    7a. Whichever was not taken in the 6th.
    7b. Best Player available.
