    It wouldn’t surprise me if the Colts came calling for Mike Smith after next season. I am a little surprised they didn’t do it this year.

    Just my opinion, but I’m still for drafting a DL and OL in Rounds 1 or 2; just need to fill holes after that with future up and coming players.

    I agree Horse, if Cory Davis is gone in first round take best DL or DE Taco C. Looks good to me can play end and move inside.
    The OL if the center from Ohio St. Is available second round is a BIG GUY and well coached.
    Third round WR Anba etta Tawo has good hands and size not sure if he is really fast.

      we do need talent at OL but there isnt really much talent at OL in the draft, especially at spot 19. Will look during free agency.

    Maybe it’s time for the BUCS to start drafting the best player available instead of need. Who knows where these guys will fall.
    First round to me is like this, and I’ve taken in to consideration we are 20TH. And maybe these players are around.
    Derek Barnet
    Cam Robinson
    Cory Davis
    Dalvin Cook
    Taco Charleton
    If the BUCS snagged any one of these guys I would be ecstatic.

        Unfortunately I don’t think either one will be there. As a matter of fact all 5 will most likely be gone.
        Maybe that big polish kid from Wisonsin, Ramczyk , I think that’s how you spell it. I’m a polack so I can say that.
        Check him out.

    I like the way Horse and chetthevette think.
    Draft offensive and defensive line in the first two rounds if the players are rated the highest or near the highest.
    How many people actually think Dak Prescott or Ezikiel Elliot would have looked that good this year if they didn’t have the Great Wall of China blocking for them.
    And last year’s Super Bowl teams both had great defenses up front.
    If you don’t have a great offensive line (see Green Bay) you aren’t going anywhere. And if you don’t have a great defensive line in a 4-3, the only direction your headed is backward, I don’t care how many All Pros you have playing in the backfield and we only have an ex one.

    The idea of getting JPP and Ayers back together is pretty attractive sounding. When they were both healthy they were a force on the D Line. But would that mess up the progression of Noah Spence? Would we let Gholston walk if we land JPP? Free Agency should be interesting

      Getting JPP would be great. But keep Gholston. He is starting to pay off.
