    I agree, however, if we get into the 5th and the kid from Eastern Illinois (QB: Jimmy Garappolo) is still there, I think I take a chance on him. Rounds 1 thru 4 should be Defense, depending, of course, on what happens in FA. Remember all, we have damn near half the roster up for FA, so the 2014 team could look a helluva lot different than the 2013 team.

    Remember we also need a CB or two. Especially since it is likely that we will lose either Tillman or Jennings. Even if we CAN keep them they are getting old and we need depth pronto!

    I think you can fix the S issue in FA. Doesn't have to be a super star just someone better than Conte.

    If the draft was held today here's what my order would be.

    1. DT or DE
    2. DE or DT
    3. CB
    4. QB
    5. S (For Depth)
    6. CB, S or DL
    6. BPA on Defense

    If you ask about our future C well we already have him. He is Taylor Boggs.

    If you ask me, Wright has played far worse than Conte. Conte is no superstar, but there have been many times that I think he will end up missing a one-on-one tackle in the open field and he brings the guy down. He has missed very few tackles, as opposed to someone like Chris Harris who used to miss tackles all the time by going for the SC highlight hit and not wrapping up. Wright has been flat out terrible in run support and we have been gouged on many occasions because he has taken bad angles.

    If we want to upgrade our Safeties, I'm all for it, we could do better than each one, but if we can only afford to fix one, then it ain't Conte.

    With DT and DE's so high on the list. I would be less surprised if Emery is looking to poach some 3-4 players next year.
    Despite what he says. I wouldn't bet on it but, if that is what Tucker/Trestman want... What better time?

    I predict a crazy off season. There is a reason so many are playing on a short contract.

    It will be VERY interesting to watch how it all goes down this off-season. When the smoke all clears, for the start of the 2014 regular season, I think most of the Angelo/Lovie guys will be gone. I'm not saying that is good - or bad. Just saying it's going to be a new team, as compared with the one Angelo and Lovie left us.

    I agree completely. Depending on how they play this, we could have a substantial amount of cap space and a substantial turn-over in personnel.

    I would not use a first round pick for Jimmy either. What we do with Cutlers contract will drive if we go for a qb. If Jimmy is still there by the fifth, I would pick him up as bpa regardless of Cutlers contract duration.

    As it looks right now, he isn't gonna fall that far. He's looking to be a mid round pick, at latest.
