- Mike Pollak (1 year deal)

- Taylor Mays (1 year deal)

- Brandon Ghee (1 year deal)

NFL Draft

Round 1: Stephon Tuitt, DE, Notre Dame

Big DE that carries his weight well, reminds me a lot of Red Bryant. Can stuff the run and get to the QB. Replacement for MJ in our DL rotation. Also, I'm a big fan of grabbing OL and DL talent in the 1st.

Round 2: Kyle Fuller, CB, Virginia Tech

This guy has everything you could want in a corner. Would be a great pick if he's still on the board.

Round 3: Zach Mettenberger, QB, LSU

Big, strong-armed QB for Hue. Has all of the tools needed to succeed in the NFL. Greatly improved his accuracy under Cam Cameron this season. Is available here because he is coming off of a torn ACL. Will be able to sit behind Andy and learn for a year, while giving us an option if Andy gets injured or completely stinks it up this season.

Round 4: Seantrel Henderson, OT, Miami

This kid has all of the talent in the world, just hasn't been able to put it together yet. Would draft a C here, but looking at the fact that it is highly doubtful we bench Cook, and that it would kill any chance of developing Robinson as a potential starter, why not wait it out a C this year and grab a guy to have behind AC and Andre that could potentially be groomed into a franchise LT.

Round 5: Lorenzo Taliaferro, RB, Costal Carolina

Big power back who had a great week at the Senior Bowl. He is fantastic in pass protection, and has also shown ability as a receiver out of the backfield and in the return game. Replaces BJGE when his contract expires after this season. Love this guy and I think he'd be a great pick.

Round 6: Aaron Colvin, CB, Oklahoma

3rd round talent (potentially 2nd if he had a good pre-draft showing) who tore his ACL in Senior Bowl practices this week. IR him for this season and you have yourself a talented corner for next season as long as he recovers properly.

Round 7: Gator Hoskins, H-B, Marshall

Hue wants an H-B, so here he is. This kid is an explosive TE (who also has blocking ability) who due to his size (only 6'2) will be moving to FB in the NFL. He has H-B written all over him, and Hue is hoping he has himself a poor man's Marcel Reece.
