Right now it looks like Kirks days in Oakland are numbered. He gets more than his share of the blame for the horrible run defense. I mean since he has had the starting spot we are basically last against the run but who am I kidding When you got DTs like ours we could do a lot worse. So he has a 3rd round tender but I think he’s worth more I mean there’s only 1 or maybe 2 MLBs coming out that play at his level anyway but that’s what we are asking for. So we get a 3rd out of him, so we got to grab the best MLB available which is Rolando McClain, LB, and Alabama. That was easy right? Now the big question is what do we do in the next rounds? I think we have four different choices. NTs Linval Joseph, Cam Thomas, MT. Cody, or the guy Al won’t be able to pass up and I know if we don’t get him in the first and he’s available in second OT Bruce Campbell. If we grab a NT then its pretty clear we got to go Oline with both 3rds and the 4th getting a Tackle, Guard and a big mean center. I’m not sold on any of the three NTs though I think Cody has the most potential but I’m afraid he will be at the buffet with Russell.
Draft without Morrison.
1st. Rolando McClain
2nd. Linval Joseph
3rd. OT/G Vladimir Ducasse UMass
4th .CB Myron Lewis Vandy
5th. C Olson ND
7th. I don’t care if the draft goes like this.
The godfather Davis doesn’t get the deal he wants so he extends Kirks contract.
I think drafting with Kirk would only change the 1st and 4th round. 1st Joe Haden and 4th the best RG available.
So would you rather draft with or without #52?
