Is there already a comprehensive draft thread? Didn't see one.

TJ Watt fills the edge rusher need. I'm hoping Josh Jones, the NC State safety falls to us in the 2nd.

Nope, just a mock draft thread. Good call.

I want to see another pass rusher in the second round. Can never have enough of them. We need to get more consistent pressure. My guess though, is that they'll probably go after an ILB.

Some potential help for the secondary. I'd pass on Tabor and Lewis and don't think King or Baker will fall to the end of the round.

If Sidney Jones would be available they should pick him. He could be back in September and if Burns can make the team after getting injured in the preseason then Jones should have no problem at all. He is far more ready than Burns was when they drafted him. Before he got injured at his pro-day, Jones was by many considered as the best CB in this draft. If you can get a talent like him at the end of the 2nd then you got some major value.

I also believe that Watt can play on the inside from time to time, which means that he could line up with Dupree, Shazier and Harrison if necessary.

I don't think we will see Watt inside at LB. He was used at Wisconsin there mostly to rush the passer. Going to see more of Vince Williams and Dirty Red this season IMO.
