    Can we stop with the Isiah Simmons is a safety talk. Yes he started at safety but the kid has clearly outgrown it. He’s a linebacker that’s it.

    Isiah Simmons 6,4 240lbs
    Deone Bucannon 6’1 216lbs

    juuuuust a little bit of a difference.

    He’s much closer to Urlacher than Bucannon. Urlacher another LB who started out at safety

    The offense is using the O-linmen more in space than any other team in the league and I would stay clear of Becton for that reason. Do not trust that big players in that system on the outside.

    Wirfs can play OT. Only DJ has him at G. The question about LT is legit, though.

    Willis or Wirfs are solid picks.

    Simmons can play safety. He can also play lb. His position is lb though.

    Kam Chancellor 6'3 231lbs.
    Sean Taylor 6'2 230lbs.
    Thomas Davis 6'1 230lbs.

    Maybe we can stop stating definitively where Simmons would best fit because his size states it could go either way. Urlacher was 258lbs coming out of college and 18lbs of muscle matters. I like the player more than I like the fit in our system and with our roster. That is where I land.

    Friends in OH continue to say that the topic of radio conversation is the Browns trading up to 8 with the Cardinals. They have also said that the Browns are so desperate for an OLinemen, that they will overpay to make that move. The only way I don't make that trade is if Okudah or Simmons are still available at 8. Maybe Brown too.

    10 is about as low as I would trade down. Still guarantees a top player. Hopefully we can fleece the Browns for their second round pick, maybe give them the fourth we got from the Texans to get it done. While I love the addition of Hopkins, I really want to recoup a round two pick if possible, and give the Cards tremendous flexibility

    What would be the return? We need O-line too.

    Maybe all 4 OTs are in the board, and the one the Browns want isn’t the one you want

    With the Jets losing Robby Anderson to Carolina, they might be willing to trade up and get a WR before the Raiders pick. If the Jets don't care whether it's Lamb or Jeudy or Ruggs, they might stay put. A fun draft.

    IF you take a WR...it has to be a trade down first IMO.

    If Okudah, Simmons, or your #1 OT are there at #8...take them.

    If not, trade down and get an extra pick (preferably round 2).

    I would be happy with any of the top 3 WR's or any of the top 3 OT's in a trade down (along with Kinlaw).

    Lamb still in play according to Benjamin Allbright. Albright also mentioned that Wills is rumored to have learning issues. The latest rumors circulating on twitter say that the Cardinals are looking at Simmons, Brown, Wirfs and Lamb if they stay at 8.

    Willis has learning issues? Sounds like a team that wants him, are trying to scare other teams off.
