    Yes, we are officially locked into the 20th pick. If there isn't a QB, olineman, WR, or DT worth taking trade down.

    Best scenario the draft could work out for us. Get a 1st/3rd round picks for Ogun. Trade that mid rounder for a later first to gain a mid 2nd round pick.

    Take a QB/WR with the 2 first rounders
    Take the best OL on the board with the 2nd rounder
    Take a DE/DT with the 2 3rd rounders (provided one isn't trading in a drop down with that first rounder to get a 2nd rounder).
    Then with the rest of the pics work OL/WR and hope for a serviceable player.

    Of course that's a 'best scenario'

    NO!

    If Dave and Norv remain and

    If we get two number ones I want OL/WR in that order.

    Take the remaining years that Kurt Warner has left.

    Kurt Warner doesn't have anything left.

    This offensive line needs WHOLESALE changes for a drop back pocket QB like Warner. You don't get Wholesale changes with your back up against a cap wall. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if Todd Perry was back and Nails resigned on the cheap. Not to mention Todd Wade will be gone so that 2nd rounder might go back into a RT.

    I was thinking more along the lines of trading up to get Eli. What do you think? where's eli going? top five?

    Can someone tell me exactly how winning vs. losing today affected our draft position? If we're #20 with the win, what would it have been had we lost?

    I'd rather have Roethlisberger.

    Our oline next year: Smith-???-McKinney-???-???

    We definitely need to draft someone & I would like it to be Vernon Carey if Ben, Eli, or Andrew Walter aren't available because Carey can play any of those three positions.

    UFAs to look at are obviously John Tait & Chad Clifton & maybe Eric Beverly to play guard(we signed him once before as a RFA). I'm still iffy on whether or not to keep Perry because he's due to make the same amount he did this year.

    I'd like to address LB and CB if possible. Zach ain't getting younger. Neither is Junior.

    T-Buck is aging. Madison is starting to decline. Fletcher was a bust.

    Safety too. Yeremiah Bell might be an answer. We need to add speed and youth regardless.

    All that said, offensive line and QB are the top priorities.

    No firepower for that. To trade up in the first 5 picks we would need to probably trade the 2 1st rounders and at least a 3rd rounder.

    We'd still have been 20th with a loss today by the way things took place.

    I've got faith in Greenwood, Hendricks, & Moore. We better avoid any defensive players early unless a Sean Taylor or Marlin Jackson or Vince Wilfork are available.

    Well I chose DE and DT because it's a possibility that Tim Bowens isn't back this next year and we have a DT trio of Chester/Zgonina/Romero. Then of course a replacement in the mix for Ogun.

    Since we kept Wannstedt, we are definitely going to draft a DT, CB, or FS in the first round. We won't take what we need most, which would be a WR, OL, or QB for the future.

    We didn't make the playoffs so we can't have one of the last 12 picks in the draft. Since we had the best record of the teams who missed the playoffs, we have the 20th pick.

    We're 20th because we are the best team not to make the playoffs. 32-12 = 20

    I think that David Bowens, Jay Williams, & otis Grigsby can make up for the possible Ogunleye loss since they are playing opposite of Taylor.

    But if we'd have lost then SOS would have came into play.

    1-Chargers
    2-Raiders
    3-Cardinals
    4-Giants

    The Cardinals should have lost. Now they may have possibly cost themselves Ben or Eli.

    Sorry guys, we draft 25th. This is not like the NBA, the playoffs do not determine order at all. The only positions the playoffs determine is the Super Bowl determines 31st and 32nd. All else is determied by record and record alone.

    For instance, Baltimore drafts before us now that we won. (They would have anyway since we beat them)

    10-6 was the 7th best record and thus, we draft 25th.

    Rams
    Patriots
    Colts
    Titans
    Broncos
    Philly

    We were 7th and draft 25th.
