Hey man, doing good, pumped about the Pats and Celts chances this year.
So Jason McCourty is out of the picture huh, thats too bad, woulda been fun to have the brothers in the secondary and Devin at FS.
I don't really think we have the pass-rush opposite Jones either, but Nink is projected to have 8 sacks AND 8 FF to go with 50 or so tackles, clutch play guy as well. I'd much rather have Love forced into a backup role than Nink right now, especially with VW being 31 or so and a guy I'd like to see getting more rest.
How about we replace Chung with Byrd and Vollmer with Jake Long (Solder moves to RT) in free agency? That would make me pretty happy.
I would let Vollmer and chung walk resign welker brace, fletcher, and endelman, and sign King Dunlap OT Philly, Jabari greer CB New orleans, and Aaron Curry OLB oakland.
we would use mccourty as a safety
2013 NFL draft
1st Round - Barrett Jones, T/G/C, Alabama or Bennie Logan, DT, LSU
2nd Round - Margus Hunt, DE, SMU (2-3 round)
3rd Round - Tyrann Mathieu*, CB/S, LSU will drop due to off field issues could be a steal
4th Round - Braden Hansen, G, BYU (6-7) or Devin Taylor, DE, South Carolina
7th Round - Ron Powell*, OLB, Florida or Jake stoneburner, TE, OSU
That would give us a stud Guard to replace Waters (Hansen), a stud center to take connollys place and allow him to be in the rotation at guard (Jones) being that mankins is having health issues or a DT who could spell vince, a mammoth freak of nature 6'8" DE to play opposite of jones (Hunt) and a troubled but potentially great DB in the honey badger.
then sign the titans DB coach brett maxie to coach our secondary (assistant D coord. in title)I think this would go a long way to fixing our defense.
