It's only because you don't see DE as a "true position of need" that my comments are somehow off topic. And if the point you are trying to make is that secondary help is our biggest need, I can't really argue that. But my post was on topic as far as I can tell and my comments about the draft itself were made specifically to avoid speculation about draft position or who we'd be taking (even though this whole thread is speculative); hence none of the, "we're gonna finish 9-7 so we'll be picking..."
So..., in keeping with the point of the topic, I said/am saying that DE is a need IMO and should be at least considered and that if we choose to go another way, Osi would be a decent alternative.
Is that clear enough for you?

and with the 12th pick, The New York Football Giants select ......Odell Beckham Jr, Wide Reciever from Louisana State University
^^^Dude, I agree or disagree as I see fit. I don't have a hard on for you like some other people, so realize that my comments weren't taking a shot, informed or not, at you personally. I just didn't agree with the "AC ain't no rusher, Bowers? Please." comment. As I said, I thought it was way off base; a statement I won't back down from.
As far as "restated reasonings," I think you're a little too full of yourself (FYI, that was a direct shot at you personally). You clearly have a great view from the cheap seats, but you're no football genius, so maybe you should reel-in that ego a bit. Anyhow, whether you said it or not, I agree that generating a consistent pass rush is a must. And while I do think that the guys on the roster are talented, I can admit there are question marks regarding their future. So I'm completely comfortable using high picks on more D-linemen.
Do you see how that all worked? I can agree and "restate" or even support some of the things you said, while also calling you out on your bull$h!t. I hope you find this post hilarious.
Matt Elam (S), Florida I'd love to see him and Mark Barron together. then we have to pick up a Cornerback, Defensive linemen like Sharrif Floyd, and then work on the Offensive line. I also like Tavon Austin and De'Anthony Thomas to give us some elite speed.
I've seen him go in the late first in a few mocks, but most scouts have in going in the second of third round. Keep in mind that he could also return to Rutgers for his Senior season.
I just want to throw his name out there. His connection with Schiano could definitely make him one of our targets on draft day.
The Buccaneers are on the clock.
^^^I'm just blowing smoke, disregard my hotheadedness. I'm getting mighty anxious about the election and it's putting me on edge.
The good thing about this draft is were going to take 1 lineman and ALL defensive players!!!. i use to want a Teo but as a florida gators fan i have switched it up
Matt Elam is the real deal. Doesnt matter what saftey he plays in college this man is all over the field shedding blocks making HUGE plays and might just be the best tackler in college. Elam and Barron would be the best saftey duo in the NFL for years. Our 2nd and 3rd and 4th round take corners. You'll get one stud. From there take backup lineman and this draft will be a success
