    These are the guys I like (other than Wallace, Jennings, or Levitre of course)...so, If we really have "money and draft picks", I'dlike to see Ireland put his (Ross's) money where his mouth is!!

    Dashon Goldson, cover Safety, SF, 28y-old, 14 int in 6 seasons in SF

    Michael Bennet, DE, TBay, 27y.old, nine sacks, 41 tackles, 3 forced fumbles, all last year alone

    Sebastian Vollmer, Tackle, NE...let Long walk, he can play left or right, weaken the Pats, all in one move

    Brandon Myers, TE, Oak...79 passes for 806 yards and 4 td's last year

    Darius Butler, CB, IND...31 tackles and 4int's (2 returned for td's), whilest only starting 4 games, very young still...Mike Jenkins (Dall) or Tracy Porter (NO) would be nice pick ups-also



    OPINIONS??

    If we could get Goldson, Vollmer, and Meyers, id be stoked! There is a good amount of DL prospects in the draft and we can still afford jennings to teach the rookie WR we draft.

    Seriously, I don't know how good theese guys fit into our scheme, but selecting wisely in FA, and with a total of 10 draft picks (including the compensatory we're owed), we could turn this team into a playoff tema by THIS year, no doubt!

    Solid list you have there. I like the idea of adding a DE like Bennet...but I think they will go for more of a specialist...maybe even a vet like Abraham or Freeney. Now that Starks is going to be here they will probably keep Odrick at end and then look to bring in someone who can rush the passer on 3rd down.

    Also...Lots of CB depth in FA...no huge lockdown guys...but several above average guys which should help lower their cost. Adding a solid starting vet to replace SS is going to be a necessity. As well as getting younger through the draft.

    Re-sign Clemons, Hartline, Devlin, Fasano, Garner

    Sign Bennet brothers, Cox, Jennings, Vollmer

    Draft the rest

    I hope we go for a more rotational/situational DE like Wallace Gilberry (who I love) or Quentin Groves.

    I really think we haveto bring in another WR, though not necessarily a top-tier one. I'd love Domenik Hixon and would be ok with Devery Henderson.

    I do like your Darius Butler call. So many available corners this year.

    Use FA to shore up depth at need positions, and give yourself freedom to draft the best players available.

    The Raven that I want that we could have a legitimate shot at is Cary Williams. He did a very nice job filling in for Webb after he went on IR.

    QB: Matt Moore
    RB: Mike Goodson
    FB: James Casey
    TE: Martellus Bennett, Delanie Walker
    WR: Domenik Hixon
    OT: Sebastian Vollmer
    OG: Geoff Schwartz
    DT: Derek Landri
    DE: John Abraham, Antwaan Barnes
    LB: Brad Jones
    CB: Keenan Lewis, Derek Cox, Chris Houston, E.J. Biggers, Bradley Fletcher, Chris Owens
    S: Rashad Johnson

    CK, isn't Mike Goodson a rich man's Daniel Thomas? I'd rather re-sign Bush if the price is right...

    We're seeing things very similarly. Geoff Schwartz is about as underrated as they come and has been totally underutilized. Casey's another guy that fits that description, both would be affordable and very valuable. Top 3 corners and Fletcher I like, particularly Houston with Lewis as my plan B. I'd add Toler to that list too. Big fan of Goodson since his A&M days.

    We need to get a high quality TE either in free agency or the draft. Cook would be terrific but a decent alternative would be Dustin Keller from the Jets. I'm surprised that Keller isn't getting more attention. I'd also like to keep Fasano as a #2 TE if we can afford it.
    If we don't get an upgrade in free agency, I would be comfortable using the 12th pick on Eifert, although CB is probably a more pressing high draft need.

    I wouldn't sink too much in a guard. There's plenty of cheap, solid options out there.

    I would like to give Dwight Freeney a chance to renew his wheels with Wake on the other side.

    I would really like to see Jared Cook and Mike Wallace signed and that would immensely help out and give Ryan Tannehill options and maybe pick up cornerback and then hope for the best in the draft at other positions.

    My thing would be get the RT from the lions Chelius, pick up either Keller ,cook or Myers at TE and either Coxs or Houston at CB... maybe butler and hopefully Wallace and draft the rest. Dont resign any of our old players including hartline. Clemons would be the only one i would consider signing back. Draft Rhodes the FSU CB in the first, Woods or Hunter the WRs in the second with a DE in the second. A another CB in the third and another WR in the third. 4-7 is BPA and Oline depth. Can cut Patterson to free up some cap space.
