    Re: My vote for our #1 pick

    We must get the DE position solidified. If we pass on Chris Long shame on us we'll regret it for years. Aside from him maybe we consider a trade with a team several slots beneath us and go for Vern Gohlston of Ohio State; but we must came away with a premier DE from this abysmal season!

    Go Rams!

    wow how 3 months can change a person i cant even believe that was me that said that

    The fly in the ointment here is that S. Jackson is a free agent after the '08 season. I really seriously doubt that the 'Boys (or anyone else for that matter) would pay a premium for a player that could walk after next year. And when you factor in that Jackson really has only played one full year where he remained injury free, this also has to be a consideration when calculating his trade value.

    WHAT SAY YE?

    Wow.
    Jackson's an elite back in the NFL.
    That would be rather stupid of us.
    McFadden could end up demanding more than Jackson would too.

    That pick would not make us any better than we already are.
    What's the point? Seriously?

    True...if we lost Jackson, that would be a really dumb move. we already have a good running back. no need to get another oneand ruin the low cap we already have

    Re: My vote for our #1 pick

    The jackson thing is interesting. This town overall does not appreciate what he is; a top 5 nfl running back. He is someone to build a franchise around.

    However, if the town doesnt appreciate him, he may be likely to test free agency. So, if you trade him, you can still get value for him.

    That said, Just sign one of the best running backs in the league to a long-term deal. (cap permitting)

    BTW- can Nick post the salary cap rundown like in years past?

    Re: My vote for our #1 pick

    I like the idea of drafting Chris Long and getting fanica via FA that would solidify the OL and start building the defense
    Pace - Fanica - Romberg - Ingognito - Barron would make a good line for Jackson to run behind and to protect Bulger

    However Feneca costs a bit too much. And he's kinda old too...

    We cant just focus on NEXT season. We gotta look at seasons to come.

    Therefore, keeping Jackson would be a good choice. He's a young player, only going to improve a bit till he hits that age like Marshall did.

    Getting Long in the free agent then signing a FA OL would solidify our offensive line if we can manage to stay healthy.

    I think feneca has a few seasons left in him so it wouldn't be just for next season
    and you need to improve each season and feneca would do that and when he no longer performs you replace him whether its a couple of years or five years later
