Marcus Lattimore.
I think Lattimore is going to go far higher than I personally would be comfortable taking him.  Individual knee injuries like Revis' don't worry me too much, but Lattimore's history is so bad that I wouldn't want to do more than take a late-round flier on him.  I"m guessing he gets taken relatively high regardless.

I think for the most part, Dom has covered any glaring weakness in our starting 22 players and while I'll concede that some positions could still be upgraded, the positions are mostly devalued in the offensive/defensive scheme's that we used in the past. So now what the coaching staff should be saying to themselves is 'okay, who covers the position if player x goes out with an injury'? For example, who becomes our #1 wide receiver if Jackson goes down with a injury and is lost all season? What if that's McCoy? or Martin? or Penn or Penn and Dotson?

Which injuries will impact the offense or defense the most? I think on defense, if McCoy goes out all season with a injury, we lose all pressure up the middle, on defense, I think the most critical position is probably Martin. So hopefully, we can address those depth issues with the #2 through #4 picks. Other areas of concern are OT, if Penn goes down, you slide Dotson to LT and Meredith to RT, so how confident of either of those players are you playing those positions? If Revis isn't able to play next season, are we going to be able to do what we want with Wright and Johnson as our starting corners?

Almost all the other positions (aside from QB) have some coverage for a 1 injury hit. But McCoy and Martin bother me the most and hopefully we will address at least those issues in the first 4 picks. As to other positions, I'd like to see a OL drafted, preferably someone that has some ability to play tackle and definitely another CB, because even though I'm 95% sure Revis is going to be ready opening day, the odds are that we'll need another CB sometime during the season. Remember Wright is just one bonehead act away from a year long suspension.

While BPA sounds good in theory, what we need really is BPA at a position of needed depth throughout the draft.

They need to build that depth up. Its not very good at all. Good teams have at least ok depth. We have **CENSORED** for depth. Hopefully they take care of this in the draft and in FA as well.

I definitely don't feel BPA is black and white.

Say we are there at #43 and out of the 6 guys we have as possibilities to draft: #1 is a OG, #2 is a DE, #3 is an OLB, 4th is an OT, etc....
Some would say, "take the OG, he is BPA!". I would probably disagree. If the DE is just slightly lower grade-wise, but at a position of great need, then he represents the best value to the team.


Hell, brees might not be as accurate as manziel.

History shows we need depth at DL and OL due to injury.....better look at drafting for those positions for depth.

I feel the same and would do the same.

I'd be more than fine with a guard if it meant they were cutting Joseph.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

I actually feel the same, but the Bucs seem super high on Joseph(for what I can only guess is leadership ability)...so it doesn't seem all that realistic to have us taking an OG in that scenario I presented.

That said, I absolutely love Larry Warford. Dude would be an instant upgrade over DJ and would save us a bit of money(for all those who are freaking about our cap sitch).
