    I must say though, that I believe my vote was technically for taking the best player, while trading Jackson. Run DMC is my current #1 prospect.

    Who voted for the bust path....Taking the best DE or OL?

    Seriously, taking the best player or trading down are the only ways to go.
    Ah, well, see that's interesting. The bust path was of my own choosing. Take the Best DE.

    And it's for reasons along similar lines as you DMC vote...best player available. You heard me. Calais Campbell will be the BPA---but there's a catch. He will be the BPA WHO FILLS A NEED!

    Now, I've read your therory previously about using the draft to address the needs of the future. And I'd like to put my own spin on it, if I may. What better way to fill a need of the future than by adressing it in the present? And if it also so happens to be a need of the present?

    Then you have a necessary choice. Because regardless of whether it was last year, this year, or next year, the Defensive End position has and will be a need in years to come, unless we address the problem now. We are still adressing an issue that could spew forth into the future, but we're nipping it in the butt in the present in a bid to prevent it being a need in the future.

    Will the RB position be a need in the future? Not unless we can't affor S-Jax.
    Quarterback? 65 Million reasons to vote "no."
    WR? Surely Will, but we have more pressing future needs that we could adress now.
    OL? Most definately, and this would be a nice time to start.
    TE? Don't even go there.
    FB? Not worth a first rounder, but is a present and future need/

    DL? BINGO! We definately could use some help here, and we will need help until the problem is addressed.
    LB? Potentially, but it's far from our most pressing need.
    CB? We could use a CB, but are you investing too much into one position when you have other needs?
    S? Yes sir. O.J is off contract, Chavous is...well... and it may be a nice time to go out and grab a safety.

    So you see? Adressing the needs of the future in the present, co-incidentally also needs of the present, to prevent them being needs of th future.

    So you are not concerned at all about Jackson's durability?

    We gotta go Chris Long in a trade down with ATL. Atlanta wants an elite guy at any main offensive position plus they have 3 2nds which we could get 2 of. Allowing us to get a tackle like Alex Boone or Barry Richardson, getting a SS like Craig Steltz, and a wide out like Harry Douglas. That would be a dream draft

    Obviously, value meeting need is a good thing.

    Campbell has been the most disappointing college player for me thus far this season. I've certainly wanted to like him, but I wouldn't feel good about picking him in the Top 3.

    Okay, fair enough. Campbell, I agree, hasn't had the strongest of junior seasons, and maybe it warrants a further year in the collegiate ranks to elevate his game as a senior. Chris Long has really come on though, no?

    For mind, if Campbell comes out and has some great workouts, he will get chosen top 5 on sheer potential. Long has really produced, (something like 16 tackles and 12 sacks?) and he might even jump the Campbell gun.

    Chris Long '08! President or first round pick, whichever one leads us to the super bowl!

    His talent doesn't just come around ever year, we need to get him for the next decade or more!

    I voted trade down, for two reasons. One the Rams front office is not one that looks foward to paying top 5 money to anyone.

    And two, if we draft correctly, we could address a number of different positions.
