This draft Pioli pulls, well, a Pioli. Our best option since Pioli wont trade up for RG3 is to trade down, at this point I am not going to predict that happens although the Bengals make a great trade partner.
"With the 12th pick in the 2012 draft, the Kansas City Chiefsselect......Mark Barron, strong safety University of Alabama".
Lets wake up and smell the coffee, this team is not being built to be the Patriots unless we luck into Tom Brady 2.0, were being built to be the Ravens(everyone keeps looking over that Pioli spent 6 years in the front office of the Browns/Ravens with Ozzie Newsome, Belicheck's original wingman).
Barron allows us to slide Eric Berryto FS and with the resigning of Brandon Carr we have the baddest secondary in the NFL that allows us to clamp down and with another year of experience for Justin Houston blitz even more. We will need it with our new OC late of the Dolphins, Browns and Patriots Brian Daboll.
So our draft is:
#11/12 Mark Barron SS Alabama
#44 Zebrie Sanders OT Florida St
#76 Chris Polk, RB Washington
#110 (?) Brandon Weeden QB OK State
#144(?) Rhett Ellison, TE USC
#180 Akiem Hicks, DT/DE Blame Canada
#216 Chris Galippo, ILB USC
QB-Ricky Stanzi to replace Matt Cassel by week 4, while we have beefed up our offense and our defense plays well enough where 20 pts wins a game give him a shot, Weeden to compete as well.
FB-Shane Bannon/Jackie Battle, long story short LeRon McClain is going to Denver, I will exp later in the year when it happens.
RB-Jamaal Charles, Chris Polk, Dexter McCluster, Jackie Battle
TE-Tony Moeki, Ellison, His holiness
WR-Dwayne Bowe/Marques Cholston, if Bowe wants to go back to LousyAna let him, we have $50 mil under the cap to get a comparable wr.
WR-Healthy Hands Baldwin
Slot-Steve Breaston, depth at all 3 Haleys 22 guys off the street
RT-Zebrie Sanders, Maneri/Richardson/O'Callagahan winner
C Chris Myers, need to sign hiom to get a vet to anchor our line
LG Rodney Hudson, take him to Gates to beef him up
LT Branden Albert, Sanders
NT-Brandon McKinney, Jerrel Powe, Amon Gordon, NT Akiem Hicksby comittee continues
DE Tyson Jackson-Hicks
DE Glenn Dorsey, would love to use Dorsey as trade bait to a 4-3 team, Gordon and Bailey provide depth
OLB Justin Houston, Andy Studebaker
OLB Tamba Hali, Cameron Sheffield
ILB Derrick Johnson, Chris Galippo
ILB Justin Siler, Jovan Belcher
SS Mark Barron, Jon McGrawful/Donald Washington winner
FS Eric Berry, Kendrick Lewis
CB Brandon Carr, Jalil Brown
CB Brandon Flowers, Javier Arenas, Travis Daniels
If everyone stays healthy and we have just the slightest amount of imagination on offense and actually hold Sacred Cow Matt Cassel accountable 10 wins is possible, especially with Steve Hoffman gone, get off the post season snide too, probably not SB but Pioli needs something to save his hide with only one year left on his contract and no extension in sight.
