    That could be a bargin if he keeps going at his current pace. I don't have a good reference point for him coming out of the fcs. That has to influence his draft round.

    If we're going defense (and I believe we should), they need to pick someone out of the SEC as most defensive players in the conference have a nasty side to them.

    IDGAF what causes Clowney to fall(outside of something that would affect his ability to play for the team, obviously), but if he fell to Chicago, they HAVE to pick him.

    I wouldn't mind seeing Wright gone. Heck if I had my way we'd replace both of them or demote Conte to backup.

    The safety situation is not very good. When we were able to put pressure on the passer, the safety issues kind of slipped under the radar. Without pressure, they now have to do their job. If we can start to get pressure on the QB, then we can backburner this, but I'd prefer we fix both the DL and the S issues. When playing in the playoffs, you are going to need both units to do their job. Everyone is good in the playoffs.

    I agree. The thing that eats my gut is that we've drafted bus loads of safeties and Dlinemen. Yet our problem is at safety and dline. We wasted a lot of picks over the years.

    yep a buttload. Almost could make a team of safeties... that unfortunately could not keep anything resembling a football safe.
