For what it's worth, my current mock:

FA: Anthony Fasano (3 yrs, $7m)
Re-Sign: Sam Baker, William Moore, Michael Palmer (RFA), Brent Grimes (dependent on health and cost)
Let go: Gonzalez, McClure, Svitek, Reynolds, Sidbury, Owens

1. Kawann Short , DT, Purdue
2. Larry Warford , OG, Kentucky
3. Johnny Adams, CB, Michigan State
4. Joseph Randle, RB, Oklahoma State
4C. Michael Williams, TE, Alabama
5. Sio Moore, LB, Connecticut
6. Cobi Hamliton, WR, Arkansas
7. A LBer to compete with Schilier for 6th LB

Between Warford, Williams and Fasano we'll be significantly improving the run blocking, allowing a platoon of Rodgers/Snelling/Randle to produce yards on the ground. We trade some pass catching ability at TE for additional catches at RB. Adams brings some youth to the corners, and if Short pans out well then a rotation of Short, Peters, Walker/Jerry and Robertson would be decent in 2014. We get depth at LB and WR.


If Hamilton falls that far, Ill be jumping out of my chair yelling to take him...

2. RB Eddie Lacy (Bama)


Considering Lacy has been overshadowed by TR and Ingram along with what AJ McCarron will do this year, I think he may fall that far and I wouldn't mind taking him. He'd make a great 1-2 punch with Quizz (you'll see it with him and TJ Yeldon this year)

I do think that if we don't re-sign Grimes and if Tony retires we need to hit both of those in the first 2 rounds. And when McClure retires, we need to spend another round 1-2 pick on an interior lineman. Needless to say I hope all three don't happen this offseason...

Personally, I think RB and TE are positions that can be had later on in the draft or FA. Historically theyre not positions that have to be drafted highly to be successful. Heres what I would do:

1. Johnathon Banks - He would have to fall some but I think teams will view him as the 4th best corner in the draft. Not impossible to reach us.
2. Brandon Jenkins - Would have easily been a 1st rounder, again, may have to drop a little but not impossible.
3. Christine Michael, RB
4. Chris Gragg, TE
5. Cobi Hamilton, WR
6. Desmond Trufant, CB
7. Christian Robinson, LB

not sure where else to post what I want to say.. so I guess it can go in here..

--

Ive been LOL'ing so hard at the majority of the people in the "Julio Jones: Good Trade?" thread going on right now in the NFL General forum... so many haters and its just great.. I liked the trade at the time it happened.. and I like it even more now, considering how dynamic and unreal Julio already is for us.. and he's still a baby that has recently learned to crawl.. just imagine how good the kid is going to be once he learns to walk Cool Surprised Cool Surprised Surprised

I'm on the Kenjon Barner to ATL train. Heck, I'm on every UO player to ATL train.

But seriously, I like the fit. Barner is finally getting his chance to shine with the departure of LMJ. Good vision, wiggle, and speed. Also has great hands out of the backfield. Look at the consistency: he has averaged 6.0, 6.1, 6.2, and 6.3 YPC ('09 to '12 respectively). On pace for over 2,100 yards and 32 TD's this season. Ballin'.

He's somewhat small and its always tough to see how his game will translate with the offense hes in. I would take him somewhere around the 5th though

Valid points. I'm not worried about his size, but you never know how the transition will go from Chip's offense to the NFL. That's something that is always incredibly tough to evaluate. A couple of things he has going for him, however are his work ethic--he's a hard worker with a great head on his shoulders--and familiarity with playing fast. Oregon's offense is faster than any NFL offense (by fast, I mean the speed/tempo that they play at). I'd imagine that would help the transition process.
