    Needs more Donte Moncrief!

    Aside from that the positional rankings look good as far as what order to put them in overall is enough to make my head spin.

    No RBs huh? Id probably toss the mamba in there somewhere

    Moncrief has some 1st round potential (right now he's a solid 2nd round talent). He lacks explosion, but he's a beast. He'll catch everything, but get you No YAC. My biggest beef with him is that he LIVES off a nasty double move, that probably won't be nearly as successful at the NFL level. He doesn't do a good job of getting open without it. But he can make catches in traffic and fight through coverages to attack the ball.

    Right now, not "total package" enough for a 1st round grade. He might be the best "traffic catcher" or "fight for the ball" go getter... but he has no "take it to the house" skills, and little separation skills.

    A red zone beast and a guy who can turn downs, definitely... but a game changer, who forces defenses, definitely not. I think he'll struggle to be consistently dangerous against NFL zone coverages

    recent comparison : Brandon Lafell

    10 years ago, he'd be a top 10 pick. lol

    ps i like hanging out in the war room...

    Lee went down last night, didnt look pretty. That could cause him to fall in the 2nd, but I doubt it.

    I know Nix wouldnt be the sexiest pick in the 1st, but the guy gets push it seems almost every single play. McLendon/Nix/Heyward on the line if Cam can step up would be nice.

    I think Nix is an awesome player, but interior Dlinemen don't win you championships.

    I never thought I would be saying this in the next 5 years, but I am ready for a drop back quarterback who can make throws on rhythm in less than 4 seconds, that being said after watching LSU Quarterback yesterday, he made three throws in that game that make me believe, he is going to make a big time QB in the NFL, and he is still learning. Now I know Pittsburgh will draft a Offensive tackle, or Dominate pass rusher, but, perhaps it is time, to think of the future sooner than later

    I understand this point. I dont see Heyward as the answer and Hood wont be here for another contact. I wouldnt be dissapointed with Nix, he is a total 3-4 dlinemen. It might not be sexy, but I think it would help our LB a lot and it would get some pressure up the middle or LE/RE
