    Potential S options post Emery pre draft presser.

    Ryan Shazier or Telvin Smith. Interesting thoughts.

    I also saw this and could see Emery pulling the trigger on one of them if the top safetys are gone. It all depends on just who is left at 14 of course.

    He's talked about CB to S, I see no reason they couldn't look further down. I could also see them taking what many will look at as a reach in Fuller who can play S and CB, even if more convential picks are sitting there.

    I still see them taking 2 DB's in this draft, and probably 3 O players, which leaves 2 picks left for front 7 of the D.

    He's my favorite safety in this year's draft.

    I love Deonne to the Bears. I'd be stoked if we got him in the 2nd, even with a trade up. Adding a top notch CB prospect in the 1st and that shores up the secondary going forward very nicely. You may be able to nab Fuller in the mid 1st with a small trade down to net an extra 4th (there's your ammo to move up in 2).

    That's my dream scenario if Donald isn't there for us, which increasingly looks like it will be the case.

    Ourlads has Bucannon as its top rated S. Thy may be out of line or not but I suspect he will not last if Ourlads has him ranked that similar to the Big 2, which normally they are, then many teams may rate him with the other 2 ( Pryor and Dix) and unless we go in rd 1 he probably will not be there. I hope he is but just sayin... lots of teams looking for S this yr.

    That was my thought. With Emery clearly having a relatively unique approach in how he values player attributes, many are anticipating a surprise pick. I'm thinking Bucannon could be our pick at 14 that might ruffle some feathers amongst fans and analysts. But if you look closer, he appears to be the most physically talented from a workout standpoint, and has a productive record on the field.

    I agree, I doubt he lasts to the 51st pick. I wouldnt mind at all if we were able to trade down in the 1st and still grab him. But I wouldn't be surprised if Emery grabs his guy regardless, whoever that ultimately is.

    I think he's going to pick Fuller. I'd be OK with that after I did some more reading on him.

    Does thinking outside the box make you gay?
