FA and DRAFT DAY (2012)

What started off 1-6 horrific start turned into a pretty decent end of the season finishing 8-8. The defense scheme implemented by Coach Horton finally came to life during the final 9 games. However, with such a stagnant offense (hopefully we get a more creative offensive playcaller again) (wether thats Haley or not) one thing was certain we need a significant upgrade on the offensive line and a TRUE #2 receiver. This years FA class is FILLED with OL talent which we can pull into a building team and become a contender again. My take of the free agents are:

RB: Ray Rice or Matt Forte (I'd Love to steal Ray rice or Matt Forte away but that would crowd a talented backfield.)

WR: Wes Welker, Desean Jackson, Marques Coleston, Robert Meachum, Vincent Jackson (Wes welker more than likely will return to NE, Jackson even with attitude issues learning from fitz would make a deadly combo, Meachum n coleston are strong quick receivers able to catch and run and Vincent Jackson would be a BEAST next to Fitz. At least one of these guys)

TE: Jemicael Finley, Fred Davis, Joel Dressen. (Finley is a true passing threat, Fred davis is a blocking machine, BUT Dressen helps block for the dynamic RB's in Houston and is a good threat out of the backfield.)

OL: Carl Nicks, Demetius Bell.( i doubt NO will let nicks go but hes young and would provide excellent depth on the line. Bell is a young mover from buffalo that would adds good pass/run blocking ability.)

DL: AUBRAYO FRANKLIN!! (I wanted us to get Franklin last year since we fully converted to a 3-4 system and is a MONSTER over the center. only signed one year deal with NO and would love to bring him in with dan williams, david carter can learn from him)

LB: Ahmad Brooks (still a 3-4 linebacker from our rival 9ers and create a talented group of linebackers)


RESIGN: Campbell, Richard Marshall, Vonnie Holiday, Mike Leach!, Feely! (everyone else could bring em back and if provide good ability to stay on the team keep them.)
Draft: Would love Decastro or martin OL from Stanford, if not their. Reiff. if he not their (id LOVE BLACKMAN! next to fitz but that wont happen). if those 4 artn there we go LB! Cortney upshaw, Luke kuechly, Don'te Hightower,etcetc
Vontaze Burfict - now this is a rediculous! reach. but he is a dynamic player if he wasnt so much a dang bonehead about personal fouls. if he happens to fall i'd take him later NOT 1st round.
What you guys think?
