:2: This is my first post and I thought I'd jump right into it. first off I was at the jets game and my lord did I miss seeing KJ out there. without him we have a VERY mediocre run defense. I know Mike Morgan wasn't awful in his first start but he's nowhere near as fast or as powerful as KJ. Bobby is a stud and he impresses me every game I watch. I have a feeling he's gonna be a hard stick to break, meaning injuries aren't likely heading his way anytime soon, he's a rook and a damn big one at that. Leroy worries me the most though, yeah he has flashes of elite tackling but he misses more than the other LBs and has a REALLY BAD reaction time. I love Leroy because he was on our XL team and he contributed plenty to that season. I hate to say it but he's getting older and slower and he's the worst LB on our team when it comes to man coverage. I think we draft another LB in the second round like Wagner(LBs aren't worth first round picks, i.e. Curry, Keuchly or whatever that pussy cats name is lol). I think the lower we draft the better players we end up getting which seems like a contradiction to the whole use of rounds but I think it's to hype up the players and media. What do you all think? I think one more solid LB and were division champs by far! GO HAWKS! STAY HIGH! STAY FLY!

I would love to see another LB drafted. Alec Ogletree out of Georgia will be your freak. Former safety now LB out of Georgia. Great pass rusher watched a little tape on him and i am not quite sold on him being strong at the point of attack in the running game. But being a former safety tells you first off he is extremely fast and has coverage skills so i think that would be the guy that would fit best.
Another guy i would look for is LB Arthur Brown out of Kansas State. Pete Carroll himself stated when recruiting him that he was bar none the best LB he had ever evaluated. I could see us drafting him and kicking Wagner to OLB possibly because he played MLB and OLB in college. But why mess with something that is working. I love how Wagner plays aggressive hit you in the mouth type guy so i would rather us let him get settled at MLB and maybe move Brown to OLB even though he plays middle at Kansas State.
But trying to predict what we should draft this year is extremely difficult. There are so many different things we could do but it is really hard to find a glaring need right now. For the first time in awhile i am kind of at a loss for what i would want most. When it comes down to it i trust this front office completely with whoever they pick after seeing their picks the past few seasons. I wouldn't want any reciever but a Julio Jones/ Torrey Smith type deep threat. Would like to see a better RT option than Giacomini. Would also like to see us get a DT like Suh that is just a pure everydown DT that can push the pocket consistently in pass rushing situations. But i just don't see one of those in this draft. Another guy i keep hearing more and more about is Ansah from BYU. Just a freak of an athlete for a DE from what i hear couldn't imagine if we had him and Irvin to rush the passer in the future.
All in all i wouldn't be disappointed with a DT, LB, WR, ROT, or DE maybe possibly a ROG if Moffit doesn't step up and assume that position.
