Stay put, move down or move up ... doesn't matter. With their first pick, what position do they end up drafting? If the Vandersomething LB makes it down to them it changes. They're pretty set at DL, CB, OL, WR and RB. LB is good unless Hicks continues his M.A.S.H. trend leaving TE and S as "needs." Not sure what to expect from Rogers and/or Brown and Jenkins, though still playing like a stud is getting older and McCleod is getting expensive for what he does.

Safety for me.

Although OT may not fit the talent on the board at # 32, I think OL is the one position where the backup sucks. One of Warmack and Seumalo need to go, if not both.

There may be a higher rated OG than OT there. I'd take a guard if the value was there, or. OT if there was value.

I think my next choice would be TE, followed by S, then WR.

We can really go BPA at loosely defined PON.

Good spot to be in.

Unless there is an OT they like, I expect them to trade down. The other obvious positions of need can be addressed well on the second day or later.

I would not be surprised if they draft a safety in round 2 or 3. McCloud's cap hit becomes funny $ after this year.

I put RB, just because I think their highest rated player has a good shot at being a RB. If they draft a good football player, or someone who can be one, I'll be happy.

If you put a gun to my head I'd agree with O line. Specifically I think our weakest spot on the whole team is a backup and future center. That being said I still think that we should take the BPA regardless of position except QB of course. I never like moving down just to collect more picks unless you are in a spot where there are a group of players that you have rated the same. "Value" picks get you mediocre players. I want difference players. Let's face it, you only get better by acquiring superior talent. After all it's the quality of your draft, not the quantity.

We haven't gone 0-line in the 1st since Lane Johnson, and I'm fine with that. No OL or RB in the first round ever.

I'd like to lean LB, but we're geared to go BPA, with no real glaring holes in our roster. *But but but, who will our 3rd string blocking TE be?!?!*
