Another person's trash?


I am often a little to obsessed with comp picks, but they are the unspoken "free money" in the NFL. Given how stable our roster is right now, I think we can sign a few more players and then head into the draft with a true BPA strategy. But if we play our cards right, we'd be able to sign free agents and still potentially pick up a comp pick or two for next year's draft.

First, we need someone to sign our free agents. The most likely to earn us something are Andre Smith, Pat Sims and Bruce Gradkowski. Other than Smith, none of these will result in much beyond a 7th or possibly 6th round pick.

Second, we should focus on signing players released by other teams. For our priority positions this includes:

S: Micheal Huff (perfect fit for Zimmer IMO), Quintin Mikell, Adrian Wilson, Gerald Sensabaugh, Dawan Landry

WR: Darrius Heyward-Bey (Hue Jackson connection)

LB: Kevin Burnett, D.J. Williams, Karlos Dansby

Heck, we could even go after Antoine Winfield to satisfy all you Buckeye fans too...

So, does this strategy make sense? Sure. It won't set the world on fire for us but having one or two extra picks and still taking care of business in the offseason would sure help.
