Just wanted to open the mock draft pick up for discussion on who or what position you think should be picked. I'm leaning towards BPA(Ted Thompson would be proud), but am also looking at o-line, rb, wr, de, olb, and cb. Any input is appreciated.

As of pick 16 in the draft:
1) D line is looking thin for GB, and I count 6-7 guys still available on my draft board worthy at 32.
2) Might be slim pickings at O line, I count 3 left, I'd be surprised if they fall that far.
3) LB is razor thin this year, maybe Ayers or Houston could be there.
4) Sneaky pick? 1 of the CB's or RB's. I like Leshoure a lot and there's a good chance he's there.

I might update as we get closer to 32, but that's my thoughts right now. Good luck.

Pick 30 coming up. What's your thinking at this point? Here's mine:

DL- Clayborn, Wilkerson, and Heyward still there. Definitely an area of need.
OL- With Sherrod gone, I don't see anybody worthy at 32. Do you?
CB- Harris Mia and Williams Tex (you can never have enough good ones)
Wild Cards-RB Leshoure (if you're going off the grid my personal favorite)
TE Rudolph (Finley ain't the healthiest cat, but already have Quarless)
WR Smith or Hankerson (Driver isn't getting younger, Jones probably walks)
QB Locker (really off the grid on this one, but if Ted thinks he's BPA why not? In the real draft, this could be a spot to trade down)

Who am I missing? Look forward to seeing what you decide.

Thinking BPA available now for second round. Maybe o-line, CB, OLB, WR, RB

That's what Ted would do. Grab the value. Would be nice if it was an impact guy at O line or OLB.

Nice pick at 32. Seeing good things with Heyward and I'll be thrilled if it happens for real.

Nevis DT LSU/Acho LB TEX seem like the top options, hard to pass on.

Outside shot-Williams RB VA TECH-Sturdivant LB N CAR-Franklin OL MIA

Tough decision, I'd probably go Acho if he's still there but Franklin fills an immediate need. I don't think you can go wrong with any of them.

I'm leaning toward runningback with Williams, but I think Demarco Murray in the 3rd or 4th would fill a kick returner need and a passing down specialist need at a cheaper price. Same with Acho. Nevis doesn't really fit a 3-4 unless we kick him to end, and we already addressed that. I like franklin, and the value he provides, but not sure if he fits our ZBS. What do you think?

I think a dark horse is Greg Little to, and I just saw Franklin was taken.

An impact LB would be nice but I don't think it's a pressing need. To me OG can be filled later, maybe they draft a couple and see who emerges. RB does have me worried, and Williams and Acho were neck and neck BPA on my draft board. Nevis was BPA when I posted, which is why I mentioned him, but he was taken earlier.

Like I said I did not think you could go wrong whatever direction, and I can definitely see the reasoning behind the Williams pick.
