The reason Fred Davis has not been signed is because 'the guys that know anything' are not going to pay him what he (& his agent) thinks he's worth

it would be nice to have Fred back but he's all about potential and very little about production ...

whether Fred Davis is coming back or not does not change the draft priorities AT ALL

we're drafting players for the secondary and the O line with the first 3 picks

UNLESS

the BPA exceeds the potential of those 3 :lol:

If we don't sign Davis than TE trumps OL on the needs list. I like Paulsen, but he's an OL who occasionally goes out for a pass. He's not a complete TE. Also, if they like a TE in the second they at least have to look because there's like 80 safeties of the same skill level in this draft and one will be available in round 3. Once you get past Vaccaro and Cyprien, no one is even close to agreeing on who the best safeties are.

Not impressed.

Believe me, I wouldn't mind taking a safety in rds 2 and 3. We need to have about 30 of them in camp because most of them will get injured. We're snakebit at that position. But if there is a weapon at TE available, the team will definitely look if they don't have a consensus on a safety to take. Especially with the lack of possession receivers we have. Creating outlets for RG3 will be a huge goal this season, he will not be running as much and will need places to throw the ball. Asking him to play without a safety valve, like we did after Davis went down, is not a good option.

No, he got a new pair entirely.

Excellent.

I would like nothing better than for Shanahan to be right about him...

Surprisingly (to me), Doc Walker is a big believer in Paul, too. Though I think he can't spend another year struggling and stick on the team. He's gotta start showing us more.

I can understand Doc being hopeful, but realistically, when given the chance to shine in game situations, he... drops the ball... so to speak.

He needs to show us the money.

Is there any immediate reason/reasonable tactic in existence to believe that we'll trade up for the draft?

Our FA signings have been pretty good and was curious to the risk/reward ratio of doing such (if even possible; not sure what we could do to even interest teams).

No. This FO has demonstrated a remarkable ability to maximize value of picks... they will not waste any just to move up. Our greatest need is the Secondary... and this draft is extremely deep in that area. They will not move up.

I agree. Just couldn't help but wonder that since they did so well if they'd be aiming for someone more specific in the secondary.

As you said, this draft is saturated with secondary talent so its likely not necessary.

Not sure if many of you have had the chance, but this site was extremely helpful in see where everyone ranked in the draft.

Granted, they're just projections so its not by any stretch gospel.

None the less, its cool to see all the talent that has a good chance of being available to us:
