With free agency officially set begin Tuesday march 12 at 4 o'clock eastern let's take a look at how that may impact the top three picks yet -- -- city -- the top pick in the NFL draft and interestingly enough they've been one of the most active teams that's foreign policies. They've obviously acquired -- Smith from the -- and sisco 49ers therefore removing any doubt that geno Smith could have possibly been the number one overall pick. They've also signed -- Robinson who had been recently cut from the Atlanta Falcons shortly defensive backs can show who -- in the last season. But they've done best that resigning their own players they've done with -- -- the franchise -- Brandon Albert and they appear to be heading down that road Oakland Dorsey. Now they did cut Eric Winston their right tackle last year's they had acquired from the Houston Texans and that. Gives -- probably the biggest insight into what they do -- April. Their two offensive tackles they're actually three offensive tackles that kind of separated themselves from the field. That's Joseph from Tex a and -- Eric Fisher from central Michigan and Dwayne Johnson from home of those three it's probably from down to Joseph cool or Fisher who were going to be in the top pick in the draft. They probably can't go wrong with either one but the more -- -- watch tape the more and more although Eric Fisher if they take care what the topic and now. He can combined with Brandon -- to give them another decade's worth of franchised tackle play. Whether it's to protect Alex Smith or to be road graders for Jamaal Charles I think that's probably the way to reading for that first pick. Jacksonville holds the second pick in like we climbed back they'd been somewhat quiet in the offseason although they have cut quarterback Aaron Ross. And safety Dawan Landry and get better on the defense side of the ball they came in thirtieth in the league in scoring and dead last in sack production. So is it going to be the defensive secondary where's the going to be a pass rusher deep you know there's the obvious towards eagle quarterback it's he's. Usually the only top ten talent at that position. But struggled at the -- by not sure he's worth the second overall pick years. So then -- -- to the passer ushers to monitor him more Jordan Morgan both of those guys may have been a little bit overvalued. Heading into the evaluation period. So the next step is looking at the guys that you that big time potential but -- not be that presence from day one those cancers that you -- up from BYU. Oh really work out -- -- very athletic guy just not that Acosta back playing full Lorena you complete not. Dion Jordan that the defense has been for more and I'd -- waited it out and Smith. Not sure he's going to be -- to play all three downs. But he's definitely going to give you that pass rush presents the -- missing so I think Jeter's that you aren't there DR Jordan goes to Jacksonville at number two. Not for doing what they do in the next couple days pre. That leaves us with the Oakland picking third overall while they haven't made any notable so far this offseason -- key free agents and Richard Seymour. Desmond Bryant Philip Wheeler and the recent rumors that they're willing to part ways with her I'm on the clay. Now we've been very deprived of talent on the defense -- side of the ball especially in the front seven. So I think that the third take they're gonna take a hard look at surely exploit the defense tackle out of Florida. Rumors that he may even go to war in Kansas City or to Jacksonville it. But three I think he's the best option for this team that needs to happen in interior outstretched in a division with quarterbacks like Peyton Manning. Philip Rivers and now I'll Smith -- for the top three picks in the draft the -- should be a lock on regular foxsports.com. We've got your analysis covered leading up via the draft.
