2b. Jared Crick
3a. Casey Heyward
3b. Bruce Irvin
4a. Ryan Broyles or Joe Adams
4b. Jake Bequette
Now we get two athletic DE prospects in Crick and Bequette and can release Coleman and Spears. Bequette needs a year in the weight room to beef up but has the length we like and very good feet.
We get a good CB prospect in case Jenkins leaves next year in FA.
[View Full Quote]We get a premier OG prospect without having to waste an impact type pick at #14. We have deferred our first rounder for a shot at a top 10 pick next year in a trade down. I have not drafted a Center because I believe in Kowalski. If Kowalski fails we still have Mackenzie on the roster and Zeitler can play Center, too. I also don't want to crowd the OL too much as I want to give Nagy, Arkin and Killa a chance to develop which will not happen if we draft too many interior OL.
We get ourselves the slot WR/KR that we covet
We also have a premier pass rush threat for the nickel defense and future OLB to groom behind Spencer.
romo has a 3 year window at this level
that is our best shot to win it all
we cant afford to be drafting for next year
if we trade down it better be for picks this year
