2008 NFL Draft

Ok, I know that the draft is quite a ways away still, and the 'Boys have, eh-hem, Super things to care of this season.  Still, this being championship Sat. in college football, along with the other diary posted earlier, has got me thinking about the draft.

I just want to get a feel for what everyone thinks the team's needs are.  Who do you think we should go after to fill said needs.

Also, are those needs bad enough to trade both 1st round picks to move up into the top 5 or 10, or do we keep them?

Personally, I think we need to pick up either a S or CB, but it's a weak year for the secondary, so I think this can be addressed in rounds 2-3.  I think Trae Williams or Marcus Griffin would be a good pickup.

We also could use a QB to backup The Franchise, but definately don't want to use a 1st rounder on the guy.  If Dixon or Flynn fall far enough, I think they'd be good fits.

I still can't decide on what to do with those almost pesky 1s though.  If they aren't planning on keeping both JJ and MB3, I think they should take a look at Mike Hart or Allen Patrick.  In that scenerio, I say take a OL with the other 1.  It wouldn't hurt to build some depth on this prize O-line Dallas has put together.

If they do plan on keeping both Barber and Jones, I think that pick should be a WR & OL.  Unless they want to target a top line WR to compliment TO, then they should trade up and take a shot at Sweed, though he might fall anyway, and Bowman is a good consolation.  

If it were up to me, I say don't trade up, keep what they have and start building some major depth.

What's everyone else think?
