    I doubt he will last till the end of round 1....but Devon Still from Penn State. He's a freak and sures up one of the 5 technique spots

    I love Bruce Irvin, and Courtney Upshaw. Irvin is a better Pass rusher but Courtney is more complete.

    I love OLBs Mercilus and Ingram. DL I love DE Derek Wolfe from UC. Im from cincinnati and I watch every UC game and Wolfe is a flat out monster. Also on DL I would love to have Fletcher Cox. Secondary I love Winston Guy Jr from UK. He was a monster every time I watched them. He has tons of potential. Lucas Nix is good stuff too. There are tons of players I would love to have lol

    OU season ticket holder - Lewis has character issues, never went to class, not terribly intelligent, not a hard practice player. Want to avoid him.

    Basically, I like anyone who can shore up this defense.

    With his injury he might even be available in the late 2nd rd. Beginning of the year was projected top 5.

    Drafting injured players is right up TT's alley too. What pick do we get anyway? 28?

    My first choice is Mercilus followed by Upshaw.

    Mercilus is just the perfect name for a pass rusher. He lives up to it too.

    I like Crick as well but the last thing I want is to draft a player with injury issues. There are plenty of other solid DE's in the draft too. Devon Still is amazing but he won't fall far enough for us to get him.

    I also like Courtney Upshaw. If we have to trade up in the draft to get him I think we should. He's the most complete 3-4 OLB there is. He can get after the QB and he can play the run. Having two complete OLB's (him and Matthews would be amazing. He'd be my choice for our first overall pick.

    I like Doug Martin and Lamar Miller if we decide to go after a RB.

    I like Ryan Broyles if we decide to draft a WR in place of Driver.

    We should definitely go with Courtney Upshaw with our first pick, even if it involves trading up to get him

    More than anything I want a defensive player that can be a leader and motivator. Someone with a high motor, a fierce tackler and has a nose for the football. Whether he comes through the draft or through free agency, we need a player like that on our defense. I don't particularly care if he's raw. Anybody can be developed but we need someone that brings energy to our team and more importantly our defense.
