How about bring in a competent LT to get McKinnie off of his lazy ass.

A player auditioning to be an NFL player and he believes he has the luxury of "blowing off" a team. 1) Drew Rosenhaus must be his rep; 2) Childress would have traded up to get him.

TD Toby needs to step up and earn the second back position. We still have AY and Booker, to take some carries. I think we will be so weak on defense, it would be wise to get some BIG BOYS to block for AD and his crew. Reaching on a qb, will make us look like Al Davis. Best player available, we have alot of needs. Stanzi in the second, underrated and a smart kid.

Locker is going to be a draft bust. Everyone needs to check out Andy Dalton of TCU, he completely out played Locker at the Senior Bowl and all of their senior seasons.

We will be trading down 5-6 picks to get our 3rd back. We will then take best available - probably O-line in first, secondary in 2nd. Everyone keeps talking about us taking a tackle. How about a center? Is Sullivan really any good? Can't help thinking we would have made it over the hump with Birk in the middle. That's Chilly's fault too.

I agree i think they plan on trading down in the first picking up that 3rd rounder we lost and then going O.L., D.E. in the first and second. Sounds like they may have their i on one or two QBs who they think will be there in the 3rd.

So we need help at quarterback, off line, wide receiver, def line, linebacker, and secondary. That just about covers everything, doesn't it? I guess we must be okay at tight end and kicker. Very encouraging.
