    Who is the one player (that the team could actually draft) that you really like, and want on the team? For me it's Ryan Shazier. Unfortunately, we spent a lot of money on linebackers last offseason, but I would like to draft him to take over Wheeler's spot. I think we can get offensive linemen in free agency and later in the draft. Who's your draft "crush?"

    I've mostly watched the OL so far, so from that well I've really started to like David Yankey from Stanford.

    Two of my favorites - Jeremy Hill and Melvin Gordon - are going back. I think Sammy Watkins is somewhere between A. J. Green and Calvin Johnson as a WR prospect - not in terms of skill set as much as quality. Won't be within striking range of #19. Greg Robinson is a weapon, and Jarvis Landry is a Bill Bellichick kind of WR (smart, tough, willing to block, sure-handed - can work the slot or the boundary) but with more physical talent. Best comparison I can think of is a young Hines Ward. He's actually make a lot of sense at #19. He gives us a young, dynamic slot WR who knows how to act as a security blanked for a QB; he's a great target. He'd also help bring a toughness to a group that could use more physical presence. Depending on the available OT's and WR's, I think Landry is a winning football player and an underrated talent - worthy of a top 20 pick.

    Greg Robinson, Eric Ebron, Sammy Watkins, Marquise Lee, Carlos Hyde, Khalil Mack ... Yeah, I know that's more than one name, but I like them all.

    Highly unlikely that any of the players in bold will be there at #19...and I'm still iffy on Marquise Lee being there. Hyde will be around in the 2nd round.

    shazier is light in the pants and tackles high...plays more a strong safeties game as a tackler...not a top 20 pick worth guy imo the more i look...

    not the athlete alec ogletree was last year but more instinctual imo...

    Hill is coming out now. And you are right...he is a terrific back and is pretty much exactly what we need. Him and Seastrunk are my top two backs out.

    Hoops have you seen much of Borland play? Slimm pointed me towards him a while back and I still only got around to a few games. Still...looked like the instinctual backer we need. Played fast but not sure he will test great...seemed smart though, read keys and used his hands well to shed. Not to mention I always take into account leadership especially at the LB position and that kid was the heart of the team.

    I've watched every game he's played and I could not agree more. I also think Robey is extremely over rated.

    As a Virginia boy, what are your thoughts on Morgan Moses hoops? I haven't been crazy about him but his value is probably in the 20-30s and if we can't address the holes in FA he might be staring at us.

    too high in round 1...i could see a late 2nd or 3rd rounder with him but that's about where i think it makes sense...right tackle or guard only i would not try and make that a left tackle

    and i dont see the move athlete here that i would prefer for our scheme and what we want to do but with a new oc maybe that changes somewhat...

    Talking about our scheme...one thing I've been thinking about...what if the new OC doesn't employ the ZBS. Does Philly use a ZBS? I really didn't pay attention but something tells me Chip Kelly uses some zone principles in his blocking scheme. We know Kubiak would, Shanahan would but I'm not sure McAdoo or Lazor would.

    Ya I'm not big on him, just don't think he's a guy who would creep to our second pick. Not much to get excited about there, although I do think he can play LT. Definitely if we stick with our current scheme he isn't a fit, like a handful of other guys in the draft. Here's hoping we make a change there.

    Calvin Pryor I think.

    Ebron, Su'a Filo, Yawin Smallwood, Isaiah Crowell, are my fav players for us at their respective positions, but Pryor could be special IMO.

    My number one guy would be CJ Mosley. Not sure he makes it to #19, but might have a chance.

    Yes to Calvin Pryor....holy **** that guy kills people.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oC5QVHAhhM

    I don't have a problem with Clemons...but if you let him walk there's a good chance Pryor lasts to #19. He's scary.

    Easley is the class act at DT to my eyes, but with the injury concerns a first rounder is a risk. The guy I think is totally underrated so far in this very average DT class is DaQuan Jones.

    there's a good chance pryor lasts till our second round pick and if we don't take clinton-dix in the first i'd be more than thrilled to pick pryor in the second.

    He's not getting there man... I know it's the draft and anything can happen, but this guy's gonna be a riser. His tape is phenomenal and I've looked at the good draftniks, like Daniel Jeremiah and the NFL.com guys, and they all have him top 20. I think he goes before Dix.

    I like Van Noy. He makes plays. Plays change games. The tape guys will preoccupy on his weight and where he fits and he'll laugh at them by making plays.

    The Pittsburgh defensive tackle Donald is another guy who will be downgraded based on frame, in this case height, but he'll be in the backfield making plays. Internal disruptors are gold.

    I also liked the guy I saw in person at the Russsell Athletic Bowl, Marcus Smith. Again, there are unquestionable instincts and playmaking ability. I get sick of guys who take up roster spots and you wait 5 years for them to make one memorable or difference making play.
