Re: Why Are We Drafting All These *(#$^& Defensive Players?!?!?
All true, so you make a good point. And yes they did get Monroe, so that's one. Zuttah to replace Gino (hopefully that's two replaced... hopefully). They elminated Leach's position from the offense, though we don't know what Kubiak will do. They added Owen Daniels to make Dickson expendable, and to me Gilmore looks like he can contribute some as both a blocker and receiver right away. Could prove to be an important guy for us down the line. Boldin is now replaced by Steve Smith.

They are banking, I take it on KO's return. They know enough about his health. A high pick on O line would tell us they're not optimistic. Apparently they are. Or they're totally high and ignoring their most glaring problem because they're just not motivated enough to do anything about it. They may also think Wagner is ready to challenge for one of those roles (since I think we can all agree Jah Reid isn't doing anything). Who knows where they see Jensen; apparently a backup guard.
RB depth they signed Forsett. Nothing great, and I assume Taliaferro is some kind of blocking FB / hybrid short yardage back or something. I don't know. It's not great, I agree. But RB is supposedly easy to fill in Kubes' offense. For that matter he's supposedly good at plugging in late round O line guys and making them fit his system. If that's true, maybe they feel good (enough) about the O line depth (just added Urschel at guard a minute ago too).
No one likes us, and we don't care.
