ArmyBengal Posted January 3, 2008 Report Share Posted January 3, 2008 This has turned into a yearly event, so since we are out of the playoffs and it's January, I'll kick this off. You can follow my format or just thrown some names out there. Do it by round or position or whatever...I'm going to just hang with the 1st round for the time being and go from there. I have stated numerous times that the D-line should be the direction they go in with the first pick, but would accept a pick to reinforce the O-line as well:If we go D-Line:DT Sedrick Ellis - Noted as being fast, strong and the disruptive force in the middle we lack. Size could be an issue though.DE Vernon Gholston - If he declares, his 6'4 270lb 4.6 speed would be hard to pass up considering the need for a pass rush.If we go O-Line:OT Ryan Clady - You have to figure Jake Long is WELL gone by #9 and at 6'6 317, he would be worth the consideration.If I had to pick one of these 3 as the #1 player I would want, it would be Gholston if he declares. The speed he brings off the edge is amazing and the size is exactly what you are looking for from a DE. Also, God knows what kind of scheme the new defensive coordinator will bring, but Gholston could also VERY easily move to OLB in a 3-4, but that is for another thread...Have fun !!!WHODEY !!!
