I'm past that frustration.

My current one is realizing how close Darrelle Revis was to being a Steeler.  We should have traded up.

Yeah.  Not saying Timmons is a bust or anything, but... yeah.

Good news is that even with the need to re-stock defense, there should be some decent LT prospects at 1.18, if we're going for value.

I can't believe I'm saying this, but...can we afford to draft OL in Rd 1?

If there is value at defense, I don't know that we can take an offensive player there...short of the second coming of Orlando Pace being there, or something.

We can; depends on who's there, obviously. 

Assume McClain and Haden are off; maybe even the NTs, Williams and Cody.  We could get a legit LT in Davis or Bulaga or possibly Campbell, start him at RT, slide Colon to RG, swap the rook with Starks next year, that's a pretty good start to fixing the line... with one draft pick.

Lots of safeties available in R2-3.  May find some decent corners in that range, too.  You can find NTs at various stages of the draft, but it might mean developing a later rounder, so you tag or extend Hamp.  There are some really intriguing DEs, ILBs and OLBs who should be around later (Arthur Moats, OLB, James Madison looks like a Harrison type; Danny Batten, DE, S. Dak. St. fits more in the A. Smith mold).  And we could always do some value hunting for an IOL who can play C and OG late; Notre Dame's C might go R4 or 5, and I think he could be decent.

1. BA LT
2. BA FS
3. BA CB
4. BA ILB
4c. BA COP RB/KR
5. BA DE
6. BA OLB
6c. BA NT
7. BA SS

Or something.

hell, not only did we not trade up for Revis, but didn't Tomlin run his yapper about how much he wanted to draft him? I mean, this probably wasn't a state secret or anything, but the Jets traded up to the pick immediately before ours to get him.

I don't think Timmons is a bust, but he's far from an all-pro, and the great corners are rare, obviously.

Even without trading up, we could have drafted LB Jon Beason (25th) or CB Leon Hall (18th).
