      At this point I really don't even care what the Giants or the other NFCE rivals do. Until the Cowboys get their act together it's not worth the hand-wringing.

            I'm an Iowa fan so this really pains me but I think James Daniels is starting to get overrated. He is an excellent athlete and I'm an Iowa Hawkeye homer but in no way do I rate him as the second best interior O-lineman in this draft and I can't believe he is being rated as a middle first rounder these days. Just crazy to me how much experts have fallen in love with him.

              And then they have josh Jackson as the 5th rated corner... most interceptions last year. I thought he played phenomenally well.

                Yeah anyone that wants to run a Seahawks cover 3 style defense is going to get an elite player. Can't think of a better fit for a defense like that.

                  The Evans/LVE debate is very interesting to me. People in the Evans camp despite LVE and vice versa. Broddus is pretty convinced the team prefers LVE because he can play all three spots and can cover. That's kind of why I prefer him as well. But a ton of people want no part of LVE in any round. Bizarre. I really think it's the ghost of Bobby Carpenter but perhaps it's more.
                  I was on the draft LVE train. I was for trading for Amari before it happened.

                    I'll take the guy with twice as many tackles. I mean Evan's seriously had 74. Vander Esch had 140. Vander Esch also ranked as like the top run stuffing LBer in college football in a report I read. And we all know he is better at coverage than Evan's. I'm not sure how anyone could put Evan's over LVE except for Alabama.

                      Well Alabama plays against better competition and I get the feeling Vander had to be a one man team because if he didn't make the tackle, nobody was going to make it. Evans played with studs in front of him, besides him and behind him. I guess that's the thinking.

                      I would wager Vander gets drafted first. Evans' failure to run a 40 at both the combine (groin injury I think) and his Pro Day let a bad taste in a lot of teams' minds.

                        Yeah I get that Alabama had a lot of different guys there to make a tackle. But it also meant Evan's went unblocked a whole lot more than Vander Esch too. And Evans is like a zero addition against the pass. With our style of 4-3 that's unacceptable. You need LBers who can cover.

                        I don't care if Evan's gets picked first as long as it isn't Dallas doing it. I'm not over the top excited at the thought of drafting LVE but Evans would feel like a give up pick.

                          I think we're down to 3 positions.
                          WR - Moore or Ridley
                          OG - Hernandez or Wynn
                          LB - LVE or Evans

                          I'm pretty happy if we get any of those players (well maybe not Evans). Of course, I'm assuming none of the blue chippers drop to us.

                            Yeah I mean if Derwin or Vea falls to 19 it may be different but I'm guessing we will take one of those guys barring a trade down. With Cortland Sutton being the wild card burn this world down pick.
