Eisen's Mailbag: 2012 Draft picks




Today's edition of The Mailbag on

I was wondering how the 2012 drafted rookies such as David Wilson are living up to their potential. I would also like your opinion if they will make the team.

I feel very comfortable in saying our first-round draft choice will be on the final roster. Ditto our second and third-round selections. This could be a very good rookie class, because Wilson, Rueben Randle and Jayron Hosley have all demonstrated they can play immediately in the NFL. I would be surprised if each of those first three draft choices didn't contribute this season. And defensive tackle Markus Kuhn, the seventh-round selection, played well last week in Jacksonville.

Will we see Osi, Tuck, and JPP on the field a lot together?

The term "a lot" is ambiguous, but I'm sure Perry Fewell will have several packages in which all three Pro Bowl defensive ends play at the same time. It will be interesting to see who the opposition chooses to double – and who gets the most sacks.

If Hakeem Nicks can't play on the opening day who would you think would be the best candidate to replace him?

Nicks is certain he will play on opening night vs. Dallas. If he doesn't, Domenik Hixon would likely start in his place.
