Default #4 Overall Pick | Target Two Guys

If these two guys are there (they should be) - these are legit building blocks:

OT - Luke Joeckel (Texas AM)
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1737240

MLB - Manti Te'o (Notre Dame)
http://www.cbssports.com/nfl/draft/players/1664155

Both blue chip players to start building a foundation for the next decade.

Nice to see the kid from A&M (Damontre Moore - DE) declare for the draft as he's a top 5 pick and adds talent to the pool.

I gotta go with Joeckel. With the guys coming back from injury & the addition of an absolute stud to play LT or RT, that O-line is solid.
After that, go D with emphasis on CB & SS.

I would go with Joeckel if he was there but I think he is gone by 4. The Chiefs are going to draft either Geno Smith or Joeckel. The Jags are likely to draft either Jarvis Jones or D. Moore from A&M. The Raiders are likely to go QB or Joeckel. I just don't think he will make it to us.

Teo is good but I'm not sure you spend the 4th pick on a MLB/SLB that is not an absolute slam dunk. He is not Brian Urlacher athletically. Just not sold on him that high. Now if we were to sit there at 4 and not have the guy we want and want to trade back 5 spots, then I'd be OK with Teo.

The guy I really want is Joeckel or Moore if we shift to a 3-4.

I agree on Joeckel. Rebuild the offensive line first.

One of the worst secondaries in the HISTORY of the NFL and we are going to take a right tackle with the 4th pick. There is one and only one player we need to target Dee Milliner CB Alambama. We need a building block for the secondary. The offensive line has Peters, Heremens and Mathis to build around

Take the first 5 rated players and take the one who isn't a friekin asshole. I don't care what position he plays.

I'd go Jarvis Jones from Georgia before Te'O personally.Then again, in today's NFL, I think you need to have offense first. Get me two O-Lineman and either a stud third receiver or second TE and I'm psychedso sign me up for Joeckel for that #4 pickthen sign me up for Eifert or Ertz in round 2then go get me Dwayne Bowe and give him Asomugha's money

That's a fair point. But, Peters is not a given, and I'm not about Kelce either, given Mudd's retirement. The offensive line is the most important unit on the field. As bad as the Eagles were defensively, they were still competitive until Kelce went down. At that point, there was a noticeable drop off, and once Herremans went down, the season was over. They'll have to take into account Peters' status, but I would prefer they get the O-line straight before looking elsewhere.

* I strongly disagree. Dee Millner is not worth a #4 overall pick. At all. You pick the best player regardless of position in this situation and Herremans is getting old (31 next year) and Peters (Also 31 next year) is a question mark.

You need those anchors on the o-line.

If a game changer corner was there - sure - but he's not. Millner is a 10-20 pick.
