What area do you think we need to target in the 1st Round 2013

I love football. I follow college football almost as much as I follow the NFL. Mainly Mountain West and Pac, and big national games.. I tend to follow some of the projected future high first round picks

Lets look around our roster and see were we have current young players we hope develop or are playing at a high level and are young or in their prime.. (producers in CAPS, prospects in lower case)

QB: pryor - He is a prospect at this time, so I feel we don't need to give up on him, instead help help him

RB: MCFADDEN, goodsen, jones - McFadden will blossom


WR: MOORE, HEYWARD BEY, FORD, criner, streeter- I like our young core

OL: VALDHEER, bergstorm, WIZ, BRISEL(isn't old for a lineman), barksdale


DT: cristo, BRYANT, hamiton

LB: burris, curry, McClain, Wheeler

CB: dvd, chekwa

S: Branch, Huff, henry

I predict DVD or Chewa will hold down the number 2 corner spot, as well as Bartell become a player. I also expect big years from McFadden and McClain.. I feel we have enough beef to shore up the interior run with our rookies and vets. I feel our passing game is going to be something to be reckon with. With have prospects and young players around our offensive line...

A secondary is only as good as it's pass rush. While I think we will generate some pass rush I would like to be dominant in the area. A stud young DT would be nice, but I would prefer AN elite edge RUSHER. I really not that high on our tight ends. Gordon is a blocker and a fringe pass catcher. He isn't going to scare a defense. Ausberry has the potential but unlike many people I hear about he hasn't seem to impress. I would expect him to take the job from Myers. Myers I feel is more of a back up tight end. Good blocker, can make a catch but not a game breaker. Curry might not be back either.

With that being said I feel in the 1 st round we will target a TE or an edge pass rusher
