Trade back 6-10 spots and pick up an extra 3rd....
1st Round- Jonathan Cooper OG North Carolina- Its clear that the o-line is a problem and Jerry has to stop being stubborn and address it. Cooper is an extremely gifted athlete for a man of his size and fits our scheme nicely. Immediate day 1 stater at RG.
2nd Round- Kawann Short Purdue- With Brent out of the picture and Ratliff becoming more and more of a ? the D-line is also a pretty big problem. Short is big at 6'3 315 and surprisingly athletic. Has made a ton of plays in the backfield at Purdue with a good amount of sacks for a DT. A good value in the middle of the 2nd round because of the good depth of DT in this draft class.
3rd Round- Robert Lester S Alabama- I don't like the depth at all at the safety position and Barry Church is no sure thing to be a good stater. We flat out need more talent at the position. Lester has been making plays on the best defense in college football for 3 straight years. He may not be the flashiest player ever, but he gets the job done more times than not.
3rd Round- Cornellius "Tank" Carradine OLB FSU- With an extra 3rd rounder Jerry takes a chance on an injured athlete as usual. Tank got a chance to start when Jenkins went down and responded with 11 sacks and 13 TFL in 12 games. Probably would have been an early 2nd rounder without the injury but Jerry loves the value pick with injured players in the mid rounds.
4th Round- Brian Winter OT Kent State- Free and Parnell stink and theres no one else. I hope we sign an established FA, but I would still like to get some young talent in here at the position. Winters was dominant, but against lesser MAC competition. Some questions whether he can stand up against top talent, but I think hes a pretty good RT prospect in the NFL.
5th Round- Josh Boyd DT Miss St- More bodies for what I expect (and hope) to be a depleted D-line. Had a stand out year last year with Fletcher Cox next to him, but hasnt been quite as good this year. The obvious question is whether or not Cox made him look good or he's just struggling because he's receiving more double teams. Either way he has the size and talent to make a good rotational player for us.
6th Round- Montel Harris RB Temple- All time leading rusher at Boston College who transferred to Temple for 1 year because of behavior issues. Has above average size at 5'9 205 and has flat out produced in college. 4,700 yards and 40 TD's in 4 years of playing. I've seen a good amount of him at Temple this year and he's a good 1 cut zone running type of back. Can also catch and block pretty well. Probably a late 4th/early 5th round guy if he had stayed at BC with no problems, but I like him as a reserve back with our last pick.
