I think it's unlikely we go QB, TE, RB, WR or LB in Round 1 (assuming we stay at 18).
So, if we stay at 18, I guess it would be guys like Floyd, Richardson, Ansah, Warmack, Cooper, etc.
My thoughts too.
DL, OG, S. Common sense says that since NFL teams typically value DT above OG and safety, then they would be more likely to take the DT, and if I had to guess now, that's where I'd say they pick in round 1.
However, if they really like Floyd and Richardson for DT and both are gone, and Warmack is sitting there at 18, I'd fully expect them to take the Alabama guard because he will be rated significantly higher than the next DT (probably Kawaan Short).
With Vaccoro's skills in coverage and how highly he seems to be rated by those around the NFL, I wouldn't be too surprised to see us take him in the first. However, I would be surprised if we took him over either Floyd or Richardson because of the difference in positional value (DT>>S).
Anyway, all my focus has been on DT's, OG's and Safeties because that's where I expect the first round pick to be used.
