Round 1: Jonathan Cooper, OG, North Carolina
1st round guards are amongst the safest and most productive picks in the draft. The fact that we refuse to draft one early and the quality of the lines we've been fielding speaks volumes. I've still got a man crush on Warmack, won't lie, but I'd sleep like a baby if we came away with Cooper.
Round 2: Margus Hunt, DE, Southern Methodist
Everyone that is watching Ansah should be watching Hunt. You want your athletic freak? Here he is. You'll probably hear Watt's name mentioned a lot with Hunt because they both happen to be short on melanin, but think Calais Campbell.
Round 3: Khaled Holmes, C, USC
Holmes would be a steady (or better), dependable center on a team that had LOTS of issues at the position last year. Even if Costa comes back, do you want to bank on his remaining healthy? I sure don't. Holmes could also potentially play guard if Costa can stay healthy and plays with enough strength to do so.
Round 4: Kenjon Barner, RB, Oregon
You've seen him in a million mocks by now, and he'll probably go earlier than we all think, but I'd love to pair an explosive guy like Barner with a thumper like Murray.
Round 5: Tyrann Mathieu, CB, LSU
I may be losing it, but I am starting to open up a bit to the idea of drafting Mathieu. We tend to strike out in this later draft rounds, even when we think we're playing it safe, so why not swing for the fences? Some team will probably remember Janoris Jenkins and get trigger happy, but in the 5th? Why the heck not.
Round 6: Shamarko Thomas, SS, Syracuse
I'm not really under any delusion that Thomas is a starting caliber safety, but the dude plays with a chip and can really motor. At the very least, a special teams contributor with potential to earn some regular snaps.
Let's hear why you hate it so much.
