I think the 2nd round there will still be some above average pass rushers available, just don't know if they would fit our scheme.
If I go back to BPA between CB and DE/OLB, the four players I'm looking at are Montgomery/Mingo and Rhodes/Milliner. I would actually go with either of Montgomery/Mingo above Rhodes/Milliner. That being said I don't think Montgomery/Mingo make it past the top 10 picks and we'll be somewhere in the middle. There are other potential 1st round DE/OLBs but I'd take either Rhodes/Milliner before them.
I think we find secondary help through FA next year, not the draft. I have a feeling Ireland is going to go all out to fix what is currently broken as quickly as possible (CB/WR) before the draft.
You guys are right, DE/OLB is easier to translate in NFL than CB, thats why I think we draft DEs' in the draft over CBs', atleast early. I wouldn't mind Rhodes or Milliner, if they dropped to us, but I just don't see that happening in this pass happy league now a days.
I can really see us getting DRC to go along with Smith and Marshall, then drafting a DE in the 1st or 2nd rd of the draft.
A great pass rush masks a bad secondary 9 out of 10 times. That one time will happen to be against Brady, Peyton, Ryan, Rodgers, ect.
We are not getting mingo or Milliner, and I have a feeling Rhodes goes before us as well. Maybe, just maybe, we get one of the top WR's in the 1st if those Defensive guys rise.
i love the mock that Charlie Campbell has for us right now

comparisons you will find on various scouting reports. Swope is compared to Nelson and Welker. Allen is compared to a supercharged Nelson and Brandon Marshall. Hunter is compared to AJ Green and Randy Moss. ive also seen said that Cordarrelle Patterson is the most athletic receiver of all of them but is just extremely raw and that Hunter is still raw and that Stephen Hill wasnt as raw coming out as Hunter. i like Swope and the fact he could come in and already know the offense. any Tennessee WR would have an easy transition as well. my main change is im preferring Bailey over Austin nowadays. Allen i think fits Philbin the most. we would have to trade up for him and i wouldnt mind if thats the WR they want. he doesnt solve the deep threat though.
