It's a bit tricky asking this question when we don't know who will be available or when exactly we will pick. We are very likely picking somewhere between 3-8. So for example if you vote Geno, then that signifies that you think either Geno will fall or we will pick very high or we will trade up for him. Same goes for if you vote a guy who's likely going to more of am id first round pick then that signifies that you either think we trade down, start winning and move down in draft etc. Just try and be realistic. This is kind of a mix between a who do you want us to get and who do you think we'll get type of question. Things to keep in mind when making your vote
-What pick you think we'll end up with
-Who you think would be best available prospect
-Who other teams may take before us

The poll options are listed in order based on WalterFootball's mock, with Geno being #1, just to give people an idea of the stock of some guys and if it'd make sense based on your prediction on where we'll pick.

It all depends on what scheme we're running next year and who our coach is. If we sign some pass happy coach we're probably drafting a QB and if not that we'll probably draft Luke Joeckel. If you sign a defensive guy it would be wise to draft a line of scrimmage difference maker like Bjoern Werner, Star Lotulelei or Dion Jordan.

I think ideally we'd trade down and get better value with our picks with a guy like Taylor Lewan, Jesse Williams, Sheldon Richardson, Jake Matthews or Eric Fisher.

This.

I do like how you like Jessie Williams, I think he will be a steal for someone.

Trade down to the middle of the first, Draft Terrance Williams, move up from the second and draft Matthews....call it a day. And still have a first next year or an additional second this year.

I think you'll have to do it the other way round.

If he declares, Matthews will go top 12.

If Jason Peters' rehab isn't going to well: Joeckel

If Peters is fine and we get a DC who wants to implement a 3-4: Lotulelei or Te'o

If Peters is fine and we stay in the 4-3: Milliner (assuming we release Nnamdi)

I really hope we don't draft one of these QBs. Instead, I'm hoping we sign someone like Alex Smith or Tarvaris Jackson to have a craptacular competition with Nick Foles.

I also don't want to get fancy and trade down. I'm sick of not having any star players on this team. The closest we have right now is Peters and Cole Confused I want a Ray Lewis/JJ Watt/Darrelle Revis/Rob Gronkowski type player that can become a star in this league.

None of those are top 10 picks Wink

Ray Lewis: 26th pick
JJ Watt: 11th pick
Darrelle Revis: 14th pick
Rob Gronkowski: 42nd pick

Wink

I don't think picking high and picking a top player are mutually exclusive.

^^^Very true, but the chances of getting a star player are much higher if you're picking in the top 10.

Yea, I've always seen him projected late first/early second...his name and skill will get him into the first....overall athleticism at the combine will keep him in the back third of the first round of the draft. I'd be comfortable taking him anywhere after say pick 13 though.

I have no idea where you have been looking then. The most commonly used draft sites by the average fan at this point in the year are walterfootball and nfldraftscout. Neither of those have had him close to "early second" since the season started. Both have had him as a top 25 pick.
