Agree with Jax... they would be my first choice. 2nd would be Buff. Not big on the takeaway aspect but I think they were #4 overall last year. Maybe #2...can't remember.

No love for St Louis? I seriously don't think I am biased when saying they are a worthwhile D, far from great but definitely worth owning.

Washington aint a bad pick, and as Mercer said San Fran is a long shot- but if you are willing to take the risk run with it.

Jacksonville- incredible run D
Buffalo- top notch run D, cold weather games
Atlanta- Blitz happy D should result in a lot of TOs

Jax and Buffalo, I think STL isn't going to get as many turnovers and sacks, especially if Leonard Little is suspended for 4+ games.

Well I had almost this exact choice in my draft the other night, and I went with Jax... but now that I have I am beginning to wonder if it was a good call given the division they play in - Ind, Hou, Tenn all look to have strong passing offences. They look like they will be putting up points (again)... would it haev been better to take say Rams, and only have Seattle as the powerful offense to contain?

@Iron Chef--The fact that they lost Wistrom, Little still has his legal issues and the loss of Lovie all bother me this year with the Stl. Def.

Jax is a nice choice this year, but they play alot of teams that ranked top 7 in offense last year and may have a tough time.

I like Buffalo. Solid defense, didn't produce turnovers but the word in camp has been "strip the ball". If they get a few more turnovers this year and average offensive play, this could turn into a poor man's Bal. defense.

I agree with JAX

I think STL is a bit behind the 8-ball this yr on defense - a lot of injuries to deal with.

BUF should also put up solid numbers.

I would take MIN ahead of all of those you have listed if by chance they are still available.
