    The problem is cold hard cash right now. The more I think about it, the more I think the money has to be spent on the defense. The defense can take a good step forward with a little cash infusion.

    Exactly this. I get why people are attracted to flashy wide receivers, it's not smart but I get it. But nothing is more "sexy" that a dominant O line, or at least an above average one. Every year the teams that make the play offs and make the superbowl have great O lines.

    You give Kyler a good O line and all of a sudden you will find our receivers are much better.

    Agreed about Lamb & the combine. He needs to run 4.5 or 4.6 I would think.

    Inexplicable is right.....His drops did creep up this year (77 catches & 7 Drops) but as this scouting report mentions..... It may have not been as bad as people report.

    Daniel Jermiah took the top 10 WRs in the NFL last year, and gave their combine measuarables

    all between 5-10 and 6-2

    fastest 40 time? 4.45
    slowest 40? 4.71 (Keenan Allen)
    average 40 time? 4.55

    hands: lots of 9" hands


    DJs point: we get caught up in fast 40s etc -- but a 4.5 40 is fast enough for great success

    Jeremiah and I just don't get along very much. Sure..... 4.5 is fast enough. But I would like to draft a guy this high who is more than average.

    Fitz ran around a 4.4, but he has never really been a 4.4 guy.

    What I love about Lamb is his ability to beat corners for contested catches and his ability to break tackles. That translates to the NFL.

    Fitz had transcendent skills and top end production that was worthy of a top 8 pick.

    And he sure as hell looked like a 4.4 guy on the big TD's in the Super Bowl and against Green Bay in OT.

    No knock against Lamb.... I just wouldn't put them (as prospects) in the same category.

    No they arent...which is why Fitz was a top 3 pick which is exceedingly rare for a WR.

    I hope by some miracle that Okudah is there at #8.


    Salivating at the thought of a young Okudah-Murphy-Budda-Jalen secondary.

    Whatever happens in FA will let us know what player they're going to pick, I can see OL or DL/LB our D was pure garbage last year but we've neglected our OL forever so again, FA will let us hopefully know the direction

    I've done a ton of mock drafts on the First Pick website and I have decided we need to focus heavily on D in FA and then go mostly O in the draft. Get a DE, ILB, and OLB for sure.

    I would take Brown at 8 if he is there but I'm drafting 2 Olineman early in this draft. An OT and a C/OG are needed.

    WR and DB's can be had later or not at all.

    That's how I see it at this point.
