I like some of these guys. I seriously don't think we get anywhere near Tyson Jackson. He is the best 3-4 DE in this years draft class and about half the teams in the league are running 3-4 defenses. That makes him a pretty hot commodity!

I like Tupou and Williams too. Still like Tyronne Green. Rewatched the senior bowl and really liked what I saw from Tyronne! Also like the guy K Train has been talking about Cornelius Lewis. Researched his profile and it looks real good. The guy is definitely a sleeper pick. I like Thigpen also as a 7th rounder or perhaps even an undrafted free agent. Guy is a game breaking return specialist!

We have 4 lineman under contract through next year. Colon is a restricted free agent which means we are probably stuck with him. A team would not only have to pay him a lot to take him from us but then they would also owe us draft picks. That aint happening! I figure the FO cannot afford to let all 4 of our UFA's leave. I see them resigning Max Starks and I think its a good move. He was the best of what we had on that line. Marvel is a goner. Can't see them risking a roster spot on a guy who is a huge health risk. That leaves us with Essex and Kemoeatu. At least one of these guys is gone, maybe both. My feelings are that they resign at one of those 2 guys to a short term deal. Which would leave 2 roster spots for newly drafted O-lineman. Hard to imagine the team going into next season with more than 2 rookie lineman on our roster. Specially when you consider that of the 4 lineman under contract Tony Hills has never started or played in an NFL game either. :2cents:
