I've based these selections on rankings from a smattering of websites and perceived needs.
1 Eric Reid, S, LSU. Dynamic playmaker in the secondary to complement our young DB corps.
2 Dallas Thomas, OL, Tennessee. I see him as being able to play OG or RT depending on what he shows in camp. Gives us an injection of athleticism and talent on the OL.
3 Kahled Holmes, C, USC. It would be nice if Costa, Cook, or Killer were the long-term solution at center but that possibility won’t prevent me from drafting one of the top ranked prospects in the third round to improve the likelihood of getting that position right this year.
4 Cornelius Carradine, DE. We seem to be willing to take a chance on highly touted but injured players. It Carradine lasts this long, I think it would be a worthwhile risk to take as he would be a solid addition to our front 7 once he becomes healthy.
5 Malliciah Goodman, DE, Clemson. Probably go a round earlier, but is a typical 3-4 DE prospect.
6 Terry Hawthorne, CB, Illinois. Always take a flyer on an athletic corner in the late rounds for depth and ST.
