    i hate liking a player like jackson so much this early cause it just leads to disappoinment later when their stock goes through the ****ing roof. I liked chris williams way before everyone was on his nuts. Tyson Jackson or Andre Smith are both ballers

    Tyson Jackson is the perfect player for our dline and theres not alot of those guys out there.

    **** a corner or safety in the first.

    Keep an eye on Al Woods, he might be as good or better than Jackson.

    Andre Smith, OT, Alabama
    Ciron Black, OT, LSU
    Duke Robinson, OG, Oklahoma
    Tyson Jackson, DE, LSU
    Terrance Taylor, DT, Michigan

    They play different positions.....
    Not in a 3-4 they don't. Both would be DE's. The added value Woods would have is the bulk to have the potential to play the nose.

    After more research, in my opinion, these are the guys we should be looking at Day 1 early Day 2 in next years draft:

    *- denotes underclassman

    Andre Smith*, Alabama OT Height: 6-5. Weight: 339 Projected: top 10
    Ciron Black*, LSU OT Height: 6-5. Weight: 315 Projected: top 20
    Max Unger, Oregon OT Height: 6-5. Weight: 300 Projected: top 20
    Phil Loadholt, Oklahoma OT Height: 6-8. Weight: 350 Projected: late 1st - 2nd
    Adam Ulatoski*, Texas OT Height: 6-8. Weight: 310 Projected: late 1st - 2nd

    Tyson Jackson, LSU DE Height: 6-5. Weight: 292 Projected: top 10
    Greg Hardy*, Ole Miss DE Height: 6-5. Weight: 260 Projected: top 15
    Greg Middleton*, Indiana DE Height: 6-3. Weight: 275 Projected: top 25
    Tim Jamison, Michigan DE Height: 6-3. Weight: 266 Projected: late 1st - 2nd

    Sen'Derrick Marks*, Auburn DT Height: 6-1. Weight: 291 Projected: top 15
    Al Woods*, LSU DT Height: 6-5. Weight: 314 Projected: top 15
    Vance Walker, Georgia Tech DT Height: 6-2. Weight: 294 Projected: top 25
    Peria Jerry, Ole Miss DT Height: 6-2. Weight: 310 Projected: 2nd
    Terrance Taylor, Michigan DT Height: 6-0. Weight: 315 Projected: 2nd - 3rd

    Rey Maualuga, USC ILB Height: 6-3. Weight: 250 Projected: top 15
    Brandon Spikes*, Florida ILB Height: 6-3. Weight: 244 Projected: late 1st - 2nd
    Dave Philistin, Maryland ILB Height: 6-2. Weight: 231 Projected: 3rd
    Jasper Brinkley, South Carolina ILB Height: 6-2. Weight: 257 Projected: 3rd or later

    Trevard Lindley*, Kentucky CB Height: 6-0. Weight: 177 Projected: 2nd - 3rd
    Joe Burnett, Central Florida CB Height: 5-11. Weight: 184 Projected: 3rd
    Morgan Trent, Michigan CB Height: 6-1. Weight: 184 Projected: 4th
    Jackie Bates, Hampton CB Height: 5-10. Weight: 180 Projected: 4th

    With the age of some of our players, this is where I believe we should be looking....
