I also advocate the drafting of Woods. We will have to move up, preferrably offering someone in trade (?) but if we have to throw in a pick, I think we are positioned to do so. I've admired Pete's methodology in foregoing the so called "sexy picks" and Woods would fall into such catagory, but this kid is the realo dealo and being as anti-SC as one can get, I don't say that without alot of consideration. He runs routes as well or better than anyone we have on the roster at this time and his upside is huge. Will Bevell get him the ball is the question.
There are a few pieces missing in this badass D, but they can likely be addressed in FA. It's time for Pete, IMO, to bring some teeth to this pedestrian offense. I'm not worried about Wilson (or Flynn), they just need more reps and I am confident can develope into all around QBs. I am worried about the likes of Tate and Obo. Edwards I don't worry about...he's one and done. I'd be for trading Tate and probably keeping Obo (largely for ST). Rice and Woods would be formidable, even stretching the field. With Baldwin in the slot (and anothe FA WR), we could use another high pick in solidifying the line. That would give us (back) Miller as a weapon as well.
I sincerely believe the above puts us deep into the playoffs...if not more. Let's not get too crazy about this year and whether or not we have a QB, etc. This is a process and some of us are getting a bit greedy in demanding pro-bowl results from our Rook. But if he don't finish at .500 or above, we may have to get Flynn the majority of first team looks in 2013. Yes, I know this stymies Wilson's progress, but I also believe the team above should win immediately and consistantly. I know Flynn, if not Wilson, would achieve this.
EDIT: Woods lit it up today with 4 tds, becoming USC's all time leading WR. Poised, humble and spread the props to the rest of his team during post game interview. I'd love to see him opposite Rice. We'd probably have to trade up 6-12 spots. I'd offer our 1st and Tate to get it done.
Having your views challenged is a lot more healthy than simply jabbering on with people who think exactly the same way as you.
