Does anyone other than me think signing Brandon Spikes would be a goid idea. Here is why 1) he would be in our price range about 4/5 mil a year for 4/5 years. 2) there is no gaurntee about Spence coming back or starting, and / or CJ Mosley may be gine @ pick 15. 3) he is very good against the run and it would Timmons roam and make plays and let Troy do more of the same.
I am also not buying the story about Ben wanting 18-20 mil a year. He is worth it but has already got paid very nicely 2, his rookie deal and the the big extentsion. And the link to Finely he is one hit away from being in a wheelchair.
Draft if we got Spikes.
Round 1, Gilbert if he is there or DD we need a young CB to pair w Allen movinv forward. If we go O Ebron, Evans (Evans is the most Ben ready WR, use to looking back and seeing what the QB is doing) or Benjamin. I do believe the story that Ben wants a big target especially to help on 3rd down and in the redzone.
Round 2, Jason Verrett very fluid and will replace Gay has the nickle back. Kyle Fuller, they will take a CB with 1 of thier top 2 picks. Maybe the TE from Wash if they think he wont screw up again.
Round 3, Deion Bailey, Terrence Brooks or Deone Bucannon all 3 of these guys need a couple of years to learn from Troy then they can take over. Other could be Donte Moncrief depending on how the top 2 picks go need to get Ben a toy.
Round 4, McCullers or Anthony Johnson, rotationial and a more traditional NT for our D.
Round 5, Seantrel Henderson, huge OT tons of talent but needs to grow up. #1 recruit coming out of highschool. With the new Oline coach they take a chance on this kid and bc Adams right now is a bust and Guy Whimper is well GuyWhimper.
Round 5 (comp)Aaron Colvin, he has 1/2 round talent but blew out his knee before the senior bowl. He can get the "redshirt" on the either the pup or IR. But this kid is great and lets face it Ike maybe gone this year but for sure after this year. Brown already got released and Gay is all we have left at CB.
Round 6, Gillmore even if we draft a TE early we take another huge TE, he is a little raw but @ 6 foot 6 he will be better than Paulson and/or Speath. They ran and passed the ball better laast yr when they ran the double TE set. And it keeps Ben happy.
Round 7, return guy
Round 7 comp, punter from the U
