    Rivers and Connors will switch value on draft day IMHO, Connors I think will go top 20 and Rivers may fall out of the top 20. Secondly, Charles and Young are very similar, I think Denver would take Choice or Smith over Charles.

    1st Round: Rashard Mendenhall - HB - Illinois - Good vision, never ending motor, mix of power and speed, smooth cutting ability and one of the best receiving halfbacks in the draft. A Big Ten halfback who will likely be high on Coach Turner's list being a huge fan and former coach from the Big Ten. Ron Zook being his coach will be a plus for Shanahan as well, with his out of the box scouting methods.

    2nd Round: Ali Highsmith - LB - L.S.U - Good sidline to sidline, does well in coverage, excellent pass rusher and blitzer. A solid leader who gives 110%, has a good motor. Undersized, but Denver will overlook that with his tangibles and ability. Would be a higher pick, but some think he lacks the instincts to be anything but situational at the next level, would fit well in Slowik's scheme.

    1st Round : Trade with Minn

    1st Round(trade with Minn) : Rashard Mendenhall RB

    2nd round : OT Oniel Cousins (Texas-El Paso)

    3rd round (our 3rd back): Earl Bennett WR (Vanderbilt)

    4th round : David Vobora OLB (Idaho)


    sorry but just like you said you wont take a RB in the first I wont take an ILB in the first.

    This year is the Year for offense, the trend is there just look for it. 4th round is where we get our new OLB and DT

    well if he ends up being the back that I think he will, then yes it will be a steal. plus players are rated all over the place right now. but I think when it comes to draft time he will be at worst a 2nd round pick.

    1st Round-Jonathan Stewart: Love this guy and think he would fit nicely in our offense, giving us the power back we've needed, everyone has a hard on for Mendenhall and I like him as well, but at 5'11" 210 lbs he is another guy that I think will be injury prone and not able to carry the full load, we already have 2 of those guys in Young/ 5'11" 208, and Andre Hall/ 5'10" 212, we need a power guy like Stewart!!!

    2nd Round-Xavier Adibi: This kid has speed to burn and reminds me alot of a younger Ian Gold, he would play WILL for us and be a great blitzer off the edge and can cover as well. I remember before Ian tore his ACL he was a stud, Adibi will be great next to DJ!!!
    Wow. KWHIT97. We agree. That's a suprize!

Rivers Is Getting By On His Speed And Size, Conner Is Getting By On Making Plays, I Will Take Conner. And Kevin Smith Is The I Think The Best Back In The Draft This Side Of Mcfadden And Would Be A Steal In The 2nd,

    For LB Keith Rivers or Connor at #1 or better Xavier Adibi at #2.
    For RB Stuart at #1 but I hope we do use our #1 on a running back.

    Ditto on Stewart. He has great overall strength and he always keeps his legs moving, and he has exceptional balance for a RB his size. That's why he's so tough to bring down. There's a clip on Youtube of him driving for 25 yards after contact.
