I personally dont wanna see Mcclain taking heavt snaps next year. I was thinking along the lines of this...

    Trade down from the first to the early 2nd round and take Aboushi, use that ammo to move up in the 2nd and take Kevin Minter or Arthur Brown. In the 3rd i'd take Baccari Rambo and in the 4th i'd take Missouri southern NT/DT Brandon Williams. I'd still sign a Terrance Knighton or Aubrayo Franklin while Williams is groomed to take over at the Nose, Williams can also play the 5-tech. With the rest of the draft i'd find another edge rusher to groom, a nickel LB, a backup QB and just go best available with whatever picks are left.
    I like your draft scenario except that instead of Minter or Brown, I'd pick Hodges instead! And I'd be sure to use one of the lower round picks on a large, tall, blocking TE that could be something of a red zone target. Otherwise, I think you really nailed it!

    Question. Is Cody a FA this year?

    It's a shame you only get one pick per round sometimes.
    Elam, Arthur Brown, and Da'Rick Rogers with the first three picks would be unbelievable. I'd jump for joy with those three guys, all of whom have elite upside. Ozzie would be robbing the rest of the league if he managed to get all 3.

    I would think you'd have to do some real manuevering to make that happen. Elam is a 1st round pick that I could see maybe slipping into the top of the 2nd, but no further back. Arthur Brown and Da'Rick Rogers are both 2nd rounders, I guess Rogers could slip into the 3rd if he has a bad Combine.

    I know. I'm just dreaming I guess.

    No, he's under contract at a very cheap amount.....$800-$900k I believe. Makes it hard to cut him with that type of salary.

I'm not suggesting moving several picks(unless the 2 is not one of them) and I'm certianly not suggesting packaging future 1sts. But Yes, I would trade 1+2 or 1,3,4+6(assuming we have a good portion of comp picks) for the right guy, againassumign he's the last one the FO lkes.
    Trading up to get the guy we want makes more sense this draft than ever before...particularly if the Ravens do indeed get that compensatory 3rd and 4th rounder .

    I haven't seen any mention of Joe Kruger yet here. What are your thoughts? Maybe we should just not go after re-signing Paul and try to draft little brother Joe as his replacement. Any word on his NFL readiness compared to his big brother?

    Nfldraftscout.com might have something on him IIRC

    We are definitely getting a 4th for Grubbs. Count on it. A 3rd would have been a lock had he made the pro bowl.

    You are referring to Nevada's Zach Sudfeld...though he's more than something of a red zone target. Every bit as talented as Eifert but wasn't featured in Chris Alt's system. He blocked a boatload in that system.

    Re: New draft/FA/offseason thread

    Couple questions. What are your thoughts on nico Johnson? He had a lot of expectation coming into this season and with mostly going back to school I figured his stock would rise.

    Are there any late round type LT like last years Andrew Datko who only fell due to injury?

    Is Aboushi really that good? I just don't see a complete player and more of an oher type bust potential

    Oher is far from a bust
