OK

What do you think it would take to trade up to get Eric Berry?

Our first, 2nd and a 2nd next year?

Berry = too expensive.  Earl Thomas may fall to 1.18, or be worth trading up for.  Berry is 1a and Thomas 1b, and the difference is nowhere near as great as it is to the next set of safeties (Allen, the Joneses, Burnett).

Urbik, who knows.  May be JAG, may be a backup, but doesn't look like he's ever going to be dominant.

WRs:

R1/2: Tate, Benn, Williams.  Fine with them.

R2: Andre Roberts.  No way does he last past our R3, and maybe not even until.  I'll pass on Gilyard and LaFell.  Gilyard was a nice collegiate WR, don't see him being an NFL presence.  LaFell = poor man's Bowe.

Bleh to your R3 guys.  This WR class is kinda sucky, IMO.

R4, Joe Webb, UAB.
R5, Eric Decker, Minn., injury flyer.  Might need a year on IR.
R5, Marcus Easley, very raw, great measurables, nice senior year at UMass after making it as a walk-on.

TO CARRY THE MATADOR FURTHER, THE WISE GUYS HAD FRANKINSTINE, INCEST AND MUR.  THE ONE GUY (THE BLANKER) IS LIKE FRANKINSTINE ON ACCOUNT, HE CAN WALLOP YOU AND ALSO FIGHT OFF WEARWOLFS AND MOMMIES AND SUCH.  THAT MAN IS HINES WART. 

THE INSECTS IS BRUNG BY A GUY WHO "BUGS" THE DEFENTIVE BACKS WITH HIS SPEED, EXAMPLE MIKE WALLIS.  IT MAKE YOU WONDER WHAT INSECTS THE WISE MAN BRUNG BABY JESSUS AND WHY HOWEVER, THE BIBBLE NEVER SPLAINS THIS.

FINALLY THE WISE GUY AKA THE SLOP RESSEVER, WHO BRING THE MISTERUS "MUR".  NO ON KNOW WHAT THIS IS.  ALSO, THE SLOP RESSEVER IS SOMETIMES A MISTRY BECUZ YOU BLINK AND HE SLIDE UNDER THE RADDAR.  HE RUNS WHRE THE FIELD IS SLOPPY, HENS, THE NAME THE SLOP RESSEVER.
