    Count me in on the Winter's bandwagon as well, would be a quality 3rd round pick

    I would like to see us nab Aboushi from VA in the 2nd round if he's there. good size, good motor, smart player. Great value pick IMO

    Aboushi's my guy in the 2nd. I have an OT in pretty much each round that I like a lot and think the Ravens have a shot at. (Fisher in the 1st, Aboushi in the 2nd, Wagner in the 3rd, etc.)

    I think he's way more of a project than a lot of people think. He's only been an offensive tackle 2 years and a LT 1 year and he has a ton to work on both in the weight room and with his technique. I'd be hesitant to take him even in the 2nd and a lot of mocks I've seen have him going mid to early in that round. Seems high for a guy who will take at least 2 years to become a starter.

    He does have LT potential though. I'll watch him closely vs. Damontre Moore, obviously that matchup will be enormous for his draft stock.

    Definitely would love to see Aboushi and Wagner in the 2nd and 3rd, but for the 1st I would either want Barrett Jones if available or an interior D-lineman

    Said it before the season started and I still stand by it. He will be the best left tackle to emerge from this draft. He's the one guy I wanted before the year even kicked off.

    I have now also fell I love with Matt Elam and Arthur brown.

    That's my ideal first three, Elam oday and ab.

    Of course that means signing a nt in free agency, bmore, wants Knighton, I can live with that.

    The more and more I think about it, I could definitely see us taking Matt Elam in the first round. He doesnt have great ball skills, but he is arguably the best pure free safety in this class and he just has exceptional range. He makes plays all over the field. I hope he keeps a low profile. I could see him being a big time draft day riser.

    hes a born leader as well. He's the boss on that field. You see him aligning players, pointing things out, everything Lewis does for us.

    I think he would be a great guy to have to replace ed. of he even had a couple season to learn from ed, that would do wonders as well

    I dont think Ed will be around to teach him anything.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    You know, after watching the Cuse/WVU game...I'm not so sure how a team could be sold on Geno Smith as the #1 overall pick.

    Someone is going to be severely disappointed if they think that they are going to take Geno #1 overall and he's going to perform like RGIII has for the Skins or Luck for the Colts. Geno is good...but he isn't anywhere near the product that Luck and RGIII were.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    I've been saying all along that people are underrating how much of a need free safety is for this team. I really don't see Ed Reed being back--the team's not going to sign him for the kind of money he'll want, and if they try to franchise him I think he would just retire--then maybe try to come back for 2014.

    Inside linebacker isn't a big priority at this point presuming they can resign Ellerbe... which I think they can do. Next to him will be either Jameel or Ray (in the unlikely event Ray comes back) and they have Bynes as a quality reserve. They could still use depth at the position but they don't need to use early picks for that.

    At DE/DT, Ngata isn't going anywhere and should be better next year. Art Jones is probably only going to get better, McPhee is starting to come all the way back, and Bryan Hall and DeAngelo Tyson are showing flashes. If they can get an elite pass-rushing DE/DT then sure go for it, but the only REAL need on the DL is NT and they can upgrade that position on the cheap.

    The real glaring spot is free safety. They just don't have anybody who can start at the position next year and they don't even actually have any depth. Ihedigbo, Considine, and Cook are all FAs. Omar Brown is maybe a good 3rd safety or dime back type player. They realistically need to get 2 more safeties somehow for 2013--a starting FS and a 4th safety who can play special teams.

    Spending a 1st round pick on Matt Elam or (if we're lucky and he falls for some reason) Kenny Vaccaro would be a great investment. Those are the 2 guys that I see as definite day-one starters at the position in this draft. After that, you're probably looking at Phillip Thomas or Tony Jefferson in the 2nd, both prospects I like a lot but I'm not sure they're day 1 starters. I don't really like Eric Reid a lot as a prospect but I need to watch his tape more. I seem to recall him getting burned every time he played single high safety and we need a safety who plays smart and covers a lot of ground in Cover-1.

    How's that for an upgrade to the pass rush?

    If we are going to go after old Steelers, the only guy I think I'd take for a year or 2 is Casey Hampton.
    Although Walsh's system of offense can compensate for lack of talent; however, defense is a different story. According to Walsh, talent on defense was essential and could not be compensated for. What did Walsh do in 1981? He acquired physical and talented players on defense.

    He looked horrible. He's got the combine and workouts to get his stock back up but that stinker will be in people's minds for a while. Couldn't believe how bad he looked.
