    Draft to upgrade our Oline in the first two rounds. Rounds three & 4 should be WR & DB
    Draft d-linemen with all of our picks.

Dude just does not go down on first contact.

    Not one, but two tight ends on that list.

    Iím assuming we will be drafting right where the talent big drop off is like usual?

    10 canít miss prospects this year? Picking 11...the Detroit Lions. Never fails.

    Grew was not a top notch TE in the league, but really for a few years he was pretty solid for us in the pass game as well as run blocking. That first injury kind of kills his career. Now was he a first round pick? Most likely not, but with the TEs we have had, I thought he did a solid job for us.

    not that it matters, we could pick 8th in a 10 stud draft and still pass

    because that's what we do... pass

    This franchise has never been in a position to draft TEs in round 1. Itís a dumb move. You add those other pieces once you have a solid base. Not our style though.

    For the first time in the Quinn era, I hope they draft good players.
