You think Lamar Miller goes before the Lions pick now? I have a feeling Cinci takes him before us....if they don't land Trent Richardson.

I like hearing that! Some say Barron is a reach at 23, but I'd be glad to take him at 23.

Agree, at least we'd be filling a HUGE need.

There are a number of players whom I wouldn't be upset with at #23, right now, who may be there when we choose.

Cordy Glenn
Peter Konz
Mark Barron
David Wilson (though I am not a big fan of taking another RB in round one)
Andre Branch (but it may be a bit of a reach)
Alfonzo Dennard (I think he was smooth during his position drills, and has a pretty good backpedal)

Though I understand what you are saying, i am STILL having a hard time having any "want" for Dennard.

Well, here's the thing. Dennard is a physical corner who can jam receivers at the line. When is the last time we had that? I can recall people always complaining that our corners are playing off too much and not disrupting the receivers coming off the line. Dennard has that kind of strength to do that. He didn't show well at the Senior Bowl because of the coverage restrictions during the game (can't press receivers). But in his workouts at the Combines, he seemed smoother than many others in his movements, and his 40 time was respectable (though I don't hold much store in that for CBs). I still think he's a slight reach at #23, but if all other players are off the board I like (highly improbable) then I wouldn't mind him being the pick. Stephon Gilmore looked good, but he's a scarecrow compared to Dennard.

I kept an eye on the kid you mentioned, Janzen Jackson. I can see where he could become a pretty solid corner. I think he had a pretty decent workout. He might have pushed himself into a round four value, in my eyes.

Just watched it on the DVR finally, and I also can see how Janzen Jackson could be a pretty decent CB.

Im sure I might catch crap for this, but Im really liking Janoris Jenkins, but doubt he will be there at 23 anyway. BUT IF HE WAS........

Your not alone kds, kid looks like he might be the most talented corner in this draft, imo.

mostly agree with your list

im starting to like glenn more than konz even though glenn projects as a guard and we re all pretty sure he s not drafting ol anyway let alone a guard. id be happy with either of them. barron i like though i dont think he s an immediate ed reed type of player - he should still play at a high level and we need help there. wilson i dont like at all. branch and dennard im okay with but am very impressed with DE Nick Perry.

With his combine performance Perry is pretty much a lock to go well before we pick (possibly even top 10).

There were certainly some good performers at the combine, hell I'm half tempted to want Stephen Hill (the WR from GA Tech). Problem is he won't be there in the second and I wouldn't want another WR in the first....although the thought of him playing across from CJ does make me salivate...maybe if we traded down...hmm...nah...still prolly not a good idea....then again...another 6'4 WR with a 4.3 40 certainly couldn't hurt Stafford...BAH...what am I saying....we can't ignore the defense any longer.

If we go offense in the first 3 rounds, i say NONE of them can be WRs.
