    At this mock draft it has us taking DJ at #2

    i wish it had explanations on why they made the picks, but i wouldn't mind getting DJ.

    Thoughts

    Id rather Shawne Merriman if we went OLB.

    which mock?....i was high on Derrick Johnson for a while till we moved Taylor to part time LB and we signed Spragan. I think we should go offensively during the draft.

    DJ lacks the strong base that has become apparent that Saban desires. If there is one weakness with DJ, it's his inability to hold up at the point. Did anyone watch the Rose Bowl? Furthermore, his instincts are less than ideal.

    Merriman would be our ideal defender in a trade down scenario - he's IMO the best defender in the draft.

    I may be the only person who believes this. But I think Saban has a 4 year plan.

    Year 1: Create a monster Defense
    Year 2: Create a monster Offense
    Year 3: Let the team gel....close but not close enough
    Year 4: Dynasty begins

    Why defense before offense? other than the obvious...defense wins championships and Saban loves defense.......defensive players last longer....Just my theory on how the young genius is thinking....dont really mean shyt.

    Dude...Derrick Johnson had the best combine for a LB in years. He would have been the first LB drafted had he come out last year. He is the "real deal".

    Agree and agree, I have a feeling that people are saying Johnson isnt that good because they never even saw him in college. This guy has a nack for the ball like no one i have ever seen in my life NO ONE! Its amazing what he can do on the field.

    LB is not that big of a need and plus he is not the best player on the board...he will not be picked

    I'm with you, in a trade down, I think we go Merriman. The guy destroys people and has much better instincts than DJ. Also is much bigger and stronger at the point of atttack.

    Shawne Merriman just recently (after the combine) vaulted into the upper half of the first round. Derrick Johnson not only has been there for 2 years now, but he also delivered more than advertised at the combine. IMO, there is no comparison...DJ is a much better prospect.

    Donnie Spragan won't be starting for us in two years. Unless he somehow becomes far more skilled he's simply a stopgap or warm body that provides depth. We still need an impact linebacker. Whether we get one this year or next we are still looking for linebackers

    Spragans definitly a stopgap, but a good one at that. I think right now we're working on replacing seau, when thats done, we work on replacing spragan.

    I say we get a Linebacker 2nd round. We could get Blackstock (sp.??).

    then saban drafts Bralyon Edwards and we're all wrong. Draft speculation is crap. I just wish i had something better to do with my life then sit here and read these boards.

    Could happen...but I find it unlikely. We'll grab a reciever at some point. Look at our runnning backs...Sammy Morris and Lamar Gordon...that does not inspire me a whole lot. We have decent recievers already but we have NOTHING at running back.

    True...but what else would all have to talk about.
