Deone Bucannon SS 6'1/211
Its really a toss up between him and Brooks. I like that Bucannon was a 3 year captain (experience and leadership) and doesn't have a injury issue. He is a great fit for our system of interchangeable safeties. He has a nack for creating turnovers and we could really use that.
Verdict: Immediate Starter
plan B (IF WE DON'T GET DEONE)
Kony Ealy OLB 6'4/273
This is a project but with his size and speed he could be Mathis successor. I think if we draft him it might take the whole 3 years to determine if he is a bust. His potential and the idea of having an Aldon Smith type LB is something we can't pass on if Deone Bucannon is off the board.
Tiny Richardson OT 6'5/366
I think this is a steal in the 3rd. He is a dancing bear might need to refine technique a little while in NFL. Everyone looking to draft a Guard should look at our tackle depth. If AC or Cherilus goes down we are shit out of Luck literally. He played bout zone and power blocking schemes. I would like to sit him for as long as possible so he could heal his knee. Next year if we cut Cherilus we save 3 million a year with Reggie Wayne off the books plus 3 million we could resign Nicks or go for Orakpo during FA.
Verdict: Should start next Year
plan B (IF WE DON"T GET DEONE)
Marqueston Huff, S or CB 5'11/196
Its crazy to think we could get a starting safety in the later rounds but history repeats itself we can(AB was a 6th rounder also). Marqueston has great speed and shown the ability to cover all sizes. His hands are small and he can be a liability when it comes to tackling. His ball skills and instincts will make up for the areas he falls short in.
Terrance Mitchel CB 5'11/192
We have to draft a db this draft. Mitchel fits our press man scheme. He is long and athletic enough to hang with 3s and some #2s in the league.
Verdict: Depth behind Toler (we see playing time)
Telvin Smith, ILB 6'3/218(trade next year 4th for a 5th)
Great in coverage and in space. He is built like a strong safety and there are comparisons between him and Cam Chancelor. He can add weight to his frame. Does struggle to get low against ball carrier and I have seen him get over powered by some rbs. He does wrap up and seems to have a nose for the ball. With a recent failed drug test he should be available
Verdict: Could push Jackson for starter but FO won't let that happen. Should see some playing time and Special teams play.
Andre Hal CB 5'10/188
Double down like KFC. He has great mirroring skills but his height is a issue.
Verdict: depth but could help out in the return game
George Atkinson 3rd RB/KR 6'1/218
He can immediately help our return game and may provide us with a speed back as well. When he finds the hole he hits it and had great straight line speed (was on ND track team)
Verdict: Special Teams, but hopefully he is ready if his number is called.
