RD2 Phillip Thomas S Fresno State
OK. I would like to hear why you like him better than some of the other Safeties that are expected to be available around this pick. I'm having difficulty sorting out this position.
RD3 Brandon Williams DT Missouri Southern
The Kiffin style defenses usually have very quick DTs even at the 1-tech. BW is quick for his size, but at 341 lbs he is not as quick as some of the lighter weight guys. Having said that, if he dropped to R5 it might be worth seeing if he can play at a lighter weight.
RD4 Marcus Lattimore RB South Carolina
It's impossible to predict a purely medical decision. He definitely has the talent. It helps that you don't have any other injury issue players in your draft.
RD5 Justin Pugh G/T Syracuse
Arms are too short to project to OT. He is lightweight and this is made worse by the fact that he would be a tallish OG (6-5). Taller OGs need more weight to offset the leverage disadvantage.
RD6 Braxston Cave C ND
He is an OK player, but he is very similar to what the Cowboys already have at Center (i.e. possible serviceable players but nothing special).
