With the top 4 Safeties off the board I dont see the value there unless we plan on taking Keith Mcgill CB Utah or turning Stanley Jean-Baptiste in a FS..Perhaps Jaylen Watkins CB Florida who has experience at FS but i wouldn't take him at 59 due to his projection as a slot corner so i would trade back if he is indeed someone we have on our board..There's also Pierre Desir,the small school prospect but the DBs are flying off the board so theres a chance many of them will be long gone..The passing attacks of Denver and New England are whats between us and a Championship
Lets be real with ourselves Jadeveon Clowney is a Houston Texan and is ready to cause havoc more havoc than JJ Watt already causes us..I hope theyre incorporating T-Rich into the pass protection because Luck will need..With all the interior lkneman on the board I believe thats the focus...Xavier Sua-Filo G UCLA is still on the board as are other names like Gabe Jackson G Miss,David Yankey G Stanford,Trai Turner G LSU,Marcus Martin C USC & Cyrus Kouandjio T Alabama but I dont expect him to be there..Anyone of these guys could fall to us but Donald Thomas will be back and Are we sold on Khaled Holmes as a starter...im cool with Costanzo and Cherilus at Tackle but the interior must be fixed to improve the running game and offense overall..
We also want to stop the run...Arthur Jones is a move in the right direction...Fili Moala was resigned..Montori Hughes need to grow this season because he shouldve been Andre Ellington anyway...Cory Redding is 12 years deep in the league..RJF gets a paycheck that doesn't reflect his production and Josh Chapman just isnt healthy enough to contribute consistently so could we use a pick here...sure..Ra'shede Hageman 6'6" 310lbs is still on the board..Timmy Jernigan isnt a quite a scheme fit..Daniel McCullers 6'7" 352lbs could be a force in the middle..Louis Nix and Stephen Tuitt are also 1st Rd talents who are still waiting to have their names called...I'd still trade back and select anyone of those guys...I'd prefer Hageman or McCullers
As far as Linebackers go we really need to improve at the edge across from Robert Mathis..Jerrell Freeman & D'Qwell Jackson are solid ILBers its just Erik Walden & Bjöern Werner that bother me at this level of the defense..Who's available at OLB?Kony Ealy DE/OLB is surprisingly still is...Carl Bradford 6'1" 250lbs from Arizona St could be a possibility in the 3rd Rd but there's a guy named Adrian Hubbard 6'6" 257lbs Alabama who runs in the 4.6s can be the Robin to Mathis' Batman...I'd take him at #59 though i may be reaching
I'd would to see Grigson move back but no out the 2nd Round and end up with a 4th Rd pick while still being able to take the following tomorrow:
2nd-Adrian Hubbard OLB Alabama
3rd-David Yankey G Stanford
