We should resign Myers, and go after Dominique rodgers cromartie, and get mike wallace for are #1 receiver, maybe trade one of our WR for a pick?. We need a Mean physical defense!. Also golson would be nice to replace giordano. What you guys think?

Keep Myers.
Grab Rodgers-Cromartie & Goldson.
Oh, wait......didn't someone just say that? LOL...I'm with ya Raider4Life.

Mike Wallace? eh... well....not sure yet. He's definitely a threat. I'm not even sure we've got the money to get Goldson OR Rodgers-Cromartie, let alone adding a receiver.

Don't waste big $$ on OL or DL. Draft, draft, draft.

We aren't going to the SB in 2013/2014....keep building, Reggie.

Leave WR.'s As is...not an urgent need. Agree with resigning Myers. Cromartie would be good, but I have a feeling he will be out of our budget. Weneed youth on defense too. Seymour and Kelly have been good, but are getting long in the tooth.
O line and d line need addressing, along with db's abd lb's not going to happen in one offseason, but we cand add a few this year and next. 2 seasons from a serious playoff run.

Who you guys hoping to draft in the first round?.

I personally would like to trade down to get a 2nd round and easily get two good players , I mean theirs gonna be good players left on the board regardless wen it comes to are turn in the first round.

I haven't followed college that closely this year. I couldn't say, but if there is a d lineman worthy of starting, we should pick them up first.

If we trade down to get a 2nd pick with are first then we could pick up a dlineman and use are second on a CB or DB I think that would be Good and then sign a FA or also trade for picks with the players that are gonna be gone.

Here's the "Real"deal. Coach Allen has absolutly no motivational skills WHATSOEVER!( can somebody please have Mc Kenzzie read this ) Our DB coach needs to be shown the door & replace him with Kieth Burns.( check his profile ) DB's Adams..Francies..& Ross are all real "Gangsters" on the field & truly deserve to be our starters. Put Huff back where he belongs at safety please. Trade Mc Fadden while he still has a pulse & get something for his " questionable " butt NOW!

Cromartie is not the answer! We already got some damm good DB's that where handcuffed on special teams. "Heart" makes plays on the field not "Money" Please hear what I'm saying.

and as far as free agents available, don't expect big names to come to oakland. mckenzie will most likely not spend big money for big names. he likes finding diamonds in the rough. which could be a good thing. but? we can also through what we did with all those (cb's). he say's he's in better position to spend. see what he does!?

I don;t expect any "big Name" players to come to Oakland either. Reggie will build through the draft. We don't have any $$.

He definitely likes his picks and his "diamonds in the rough" but he didn't do that great this year...LOL. Wheeler? Burris in the 5th round? That's all I've seen that really made any type of impact this year.

I agree with Bjoern werner he has a big motor!. But I wouldnt mind taking lotulelei either to replace kelly and maybe seymour?.. And milliner is good but dont think he can cover big receivers. he can be decent but somethin bout him gives me a bad feeling.

luteleilei gives up too many runs. it would be upsetting yo have that be an isue again (lol). but he is a top maybe after the fith rnd. milliner is agressivebut my other (cb)is xavier rhodes florida. and another (de) they compare to john abraham of the falcons is domontre moore. and (de)bjoem warner is compared to chris long - rams.
but thats where i would start in the draft.(de) or (cb).

I like OT Luke Joeckel or DE Deomantre Moore both from Texas A&M. DE/LB Jarvis Moss from Georgia should be good too. OG Chance Warmack and CB Dee Milliner from Alabama sound good too. However, I already heard that Dennis Allen has his sights set on MLB Manti Teo from Notre Dame so that's who I expect.

That's too tough of a question because we have too many needs on defense and I think we are a one or two OL from being solidified. I don't trust McFadden to stay healthy, but I don't see any RBs worthy of the first round. I would say Deomantre Moore if I was certain that we could attain a second round pick somehow and get Jake Matthews then, but I think OT is our most serious need so It may be best to go with Luke Joeckel

I honestly would like to build are defense and be mean and aggressive!. If we get manti te'o then that would complete are linebackers. But I just hope he dont turn out like Mcclain thats my only concern. I think we should go for a OT in the 3rd round im sure their will be some solid OT's on the board. I personally would trade down to get a second round and maybe go for xavier rhodes if hes on the board.

im also afraid of the repeat of mcclain with manti teo but if it was just the case that we did pick him up, i hope he turns out to be great. he has great ethics and instincts. durring the bcs game i sort of felt he was physically tired. i felt that he needed more help from his teammates cause he did a lot of work out there himself. so i believe he is capable because he is the kind of football player you want. it's just that he looked exposed or this game bama may have made him look bad.
if DEFENSE is our game in 2012 and 2013 than (D) should be our pick in the draft! we need to make a statement unlike the bears or the steelers that we are a (D) team and there for, we need (qb) killers "sackers" to be politically correct!(lol). yes we need a (cb) and probably an (O-lineman) and a shhh-load of other positions but mckenzie is (D)-gm, dennis allen is a (D-hc) so you know these guys want to be "mean and agressive", as you said. but? to make things more confusing (LOL), they may let the next "new" offensive coordinator have his pick?

Who knows maybe well be lucky and trade down a few picks and maybe teo will still be on the board and then go for someone like xavier rhodes in the 2nd. That would be Niceeee!

Number 1 carson palmer is not the future pryer can be with the right offensive coach number 2 get a coach who knows defense dennis allen looks like he has no clue on the sideline whats going on the field and number 3 when it comes to the draft we need guys who want to play not whiners like mclain
