I know that some of these FAs cost more than others, but lets pretend that they are all the same in terms of cost, who would you pick?

I vote for Hartwell, we need that leader on D to step up and make plays. My second vote would go to Wahle, a great OG/OT who is in his prime and would be a great addition to the O-line!

but realisticly we are getting claiborne. I am 99% sure on this because he is flying in today probably to sign his contract.

we might still have enoguh cap for 1 more big name player and if Pace signs we can get another big name

Is there anyway we get Claiborne, Hartwell and Wahle? If Pace signs a deal?

rumors are that Hartwell and Bell want like 10mil signing bonuses...this probably puts them out of our range, unless we can load the contract to give them more later and less now

If they would hurry up and resign Pace long-term, there would be plenty of money to get a few more guys.

With the signing of Coakley, I'd rather see us go after Wahle or another good RT. Then we could get one of the big CBs in round 1, and Morrison, McCune, Crowder, or Lance Mitchell in round 2 who could all start at MLB right away. Then Robert Thomas could move to WLB.

from the look of it martz is looking at getting the linebckers taken care of before the draft. i heard somewhere that this draft is relatively shakey for linebackers except for the top prospects.

I would like to see us get claiborne
then look to wahle really quick or get mckenzie for RT

then i would like to see us draft CB

im feeling confident now that khalif jamal brown or adam terry will be available in the 2nd round and if we have to we couldt trade up ot the early 2nd round

yeah, they way I see it we would need to trade up to get Kalif Barnes, Adam Terry in the 2nd (if they dont go in the 1st). Mike Munoz will probably be avail in the middle 2nd, he might be an option. Mitchell and Morrison (LBs) might be available in the late 2nd- 3rd rounds if we still need LBs. But I say get Carlos Rodgers if he is available at 19! Spend the 2nd on a good OT move up with one of our 3rds if we have to.

What if..........(by the way I am not in favor of trading OP, but if he wont sign then we will need to take other options)

We traded OP to Cleveland or somebody lower than the Chargers for their 1st rounder and maybe a player or another high pick. Take that high pick and maybe one of our 3rds and trade to the Chargers for both of their 1st rounders That would give us 3 1st round picks at #12, 19, and 28. One in the 2nd and one in the 3rd. plus whatever Cleveland or whatever team we trade OP to gives us in addition to the 1st.

#12 Alex Barron if he falls that far otherwise Carlos Rodgers
#19 Carlos Rodgers or Jammal Brown
#28 Kalif Barnes or a CB (Browner, Miller, M. Jackson, Washington, etc.)

in the second get Munoz (OT) if we dont get 2 OT from round 1, or a S or LB
in the third get some young O-line like Vince Carter (C) or Ben Wilkerson (C) or maybe a DE(it wouldnt be a Rams draft without one)

well if we traded pace id be almost sorry for our line. hes the only one wo can still walk whos good. i think we would be ocmmited to all those frirst rounders going to barron jamal brown and khalif barnes. i would like that if we did that because then we would have a premeir young line tha tis sure to be one of the best in the future. Now i think we have otget the pace deal done. I heard next years draft would be better for o line anyways. But i still think we need to get 2 OL on the first day.
