    Thatís the problem with falling for a player.

    They break your heart one way or another; they look to good and move up the board. Or they look weak and you start to think they are a reach.

    As I stated on another thread, now Greenway looks weak, I donít see us getting value at 11.

    Someone give me a player we can get at 11, that is worth the pick.

    Nick, give me some names brother.

    Re: Thatís the problem with falling for a player.

    Ngata could fall, but I wouldn't take him unless we can't resign Pickett. Might be intriguing to try and get the Browns to swap if he does fall, and maybe pick up a late round pick in the process.

    Tye Hill is an option, though I'm not sure if it's not a bit of a reach. Plus, if you want to add size to our secondary, Hill isn't who you look at. But he's a playmaker plain and simple, so I don't think you can ignore him.

    Jimmy Williams is still a strong possibility at that spot. Depends on what he does at the pro day, because he's not running at the combine, I don't think. There are still some analysts that value Williams more than Huff, so it depends on what NFL teams think as well.

    A defensive end like Tamba Hali might be an option, because I see him going in that 10-15 range. I think it's too high for Mathias Kiwanuka at this point, though.

    Too high for any LB at this point unless you want to take Manny Lawson and really start utilizing the 3-4.

    Offensively, there is NO ONE besides Davis that I'd take at that point.

    I'm just hoping that DeMeco Ryans falls to the second. Hopefully Carpenter and Sims impress enough to where he'll be there at #11.

    This is why I dont like to fall for a player. The three players I like the most are Mario williams, who I never expected us to be able to get, Manny Lawson, who now looks like a real possibility if we switch, and Bobby Carpenter, who would be good in both systems.

    Re: Thatís the problem with falling for a player.

    Falling for a player in the draft I don't understand. If you liked them in college, that makes sense. I can understand that, but how does the draft make any of them better or worse?

    I am trying not to develop any favorites this year since it bugs me when other teams pick them first.

    I still get mad we did not get Marcus Trufant.

    Re: Thatís the problem with falling for a player.

    Remember the offensive lineman that a lot of us wanted last year. He got very popular and lots of teams wanted him. What was his name? I can't remember right now.
    I must be having a blond moment :bling:
    I am glad we did not pick up Boss Bailey in the year of Trufant. He has not done that well.

    Jammal Brown? I'd still be pretty happy with him, but Barron seems to have turned out favorably as well.

    I put money on it that it doesn't happen.

    I'm rooting for Tamba Hali. I'm clearly in the minority.

    He started 13 games for the 'aints last year. He started a little slow as all rookies do, but came on well. He's going to be a good one from the looks of it, but at this point, I think we did just as well if not better with Barron.

    I like Hali. He brings strong character and work ethic, which might rub off on some other players who need it.

    I agree, and that's why I feel the Rams should trade down. I also like OC Mangold from Ohio. I believe there are some real gems to be had in the second and third rounds. Let's get rid of that 11th pick in the first, and get some more picks in the later rounds to fill holes and add depth.
