    if menendehall leaves town, that leaves us with dwyer and redman, so its obviously a position of need.

    OLB we could have woodley and worilds. both 2nd round picks.

    I can only see us taking safety or running back at 17.

    my picks would be lacy or vacarro unless someone like bingo falls.
    The Difference is picking up that extra pick or two adds to the overall value. Lacy or any RB in this draft, IMHO isnt worth the 17th overall, nor is any TE. I say we DO desparately need a WR and if Patterson is there at 17 (and assuming Jones, Mingo, Ansah, Jordan etc. are all gone) thats the best value pick in my lil scenerio.

    They say the issue with Patterson is his football intelligence, it's lacking. I'd take Allen,Hopkins,Hunter and yes TE Tyler Eifert who may have the better hands than them all. Eifert is a large Redzone target that Ben's been craving. Once Miller is healed we have a better 1-2 punch than Gronk & Hernandez.

    I dont think they'd put Jones at the buck with his kneck issue but staying at OLB shouldn't concern them. However, They could move Timmons to Buck and Jones to Mack. Wouldn't it make more sense to have a proven player thats on the team be the leader of that Defense like Timmons?

    please tell me you were just using hyperbole... and don't actually believe that a rookie and a 31 yr old veteran coming off a torn ACL would be a better TE combo than 2 of the 4 best TEs in the NFL...

    I can also see 49ers coming up if Star L is still on the board or The Vikings coming up for Tavon Austin and trading Percy Harvin.
    KTrain, Would you trade for Percy Harvin? Trade = Swap first & Steelers 3rd for #23 & Harvin plus you need to pay him.
    no, id LOVE percy but he wouldnt get traded for by us...hed be a phenom in haleys offense but hes much too expensive. Id take Star in a heartbeat though, no pun intended

    thats what that idiot wexell said, thats a horrible idea, jones is a 34 OLB through and through. He has the range to drop back from that position and hes comfortable enough in space, but drafting jones to play OLB in our defense is the opposite of drating timmons to play OLB in our defense...hes already built for it

    if we get a center it is strictly with intentions of moving pouncey to guard...otherwise a guard will do just fine

    thats a weird comparison...hes a lot like holmes after the catch, he'll be a great slant go to guy and able to work the slot

Patterson would be my second favorite because i think thats a GREAT value pick. Im sorry but TE and RB would make me trow up at #17. I wouldnt hate Kenny Vaccaro at 17 but i dont think the value is there. ALOT of this depends on what happens with 92 over the next 4 days! Though, if Patterson and Jones are gone (and the other projected top 3 pass rushers) i would be contacting a team like Miami and or the 49ers. The Niners have very little at WR and may lose Gholston at Safety. If Vaccaro and/or Patterson are on the board we may benefit from a trade. I like the thought of an Eddie Lacy alot more at 31 (plus a second rounder???) than i do at 17!
    I like elam, amerson, and thomas in 2 more than i like vaccaro at 1. I dont want lacy all that much, sure if hes sitting there in 2....but i dont see the value in him as a first rounder. Bernard is the best back not named lattimore in the draft. I do think theres a chance Jones will be there, worst case scenrio is Jones, Jordan, and Mingo all being off the board which is totally possible, but then patterson, hunter, allen all come into play. Possibly star, cooper, warmack, eifert

    Worilds is soooo terrible. WR is a need, haley and ben both like bigger WRs and with heath being out that leaves them with midgets, not that it couldnt work because it certainly can...just the offense is going to be better with the addition of another WR to work in early. The difference between 17 and 31 is insane, i cant believe youd say it wasnt

    Austin just isnt a good fit. Woods is a good player, but hunter would be better. Eifert at 17 wouldnt bother me

    Ansah is a terrible fit, i would loathe that pick. I think patterson is long gone by 17 but hed be an awesome pick. I really really like mingo as a fit for our defense

    He played JUCO for two years, theres a transition to make but his ability is very natural. Some cuts he makes for a 6-3 WR is insane

    Jones would not be a MLB....what a disgusting waste that would be

    i think the production from the position would rival them if we had eifert and miller...it would be a nightmare. Neither are as athletic as hernandez or as gigantic as gronk but as far as pass catchers the production probably wouldnt be far off from a combined standpoint

    I don't think so, i really don't think there's a much difference of talent after the first 12 or so picks afterwards its just them being busts or them fitting into the right team at the right time (mendenhall not, aldon smith yes).

    WR isn't our biggest need, I still think it's RB because we have no viable starters. I wouldn't mind for them to look at Bush, Williams or Jackson though.
