The Pick

I think Chris Long would have been ideal. We could have used the help stopping the run and solidifying the DE spot long term.

But that wasn't to be. McFadden is our guy, and according to Kiffin he was our guy all along. Ok cool, so now it's time to get excited about him.

This is going to be an interesting offense. Kiffin will be able to split out McFadden and use him in creative ways to take pressure off JaMarcus. Maybe we'll even see a 4-RB set this year with DMC, Fargas, Rhodes, and Bush.

Was this our biggest need? No. But one can actually spin this as a need pick in terms of an offensive playmaker, especially given the lack of depth at WR. More justification later...
