    25 ILB C.J. MOSLEY

    47 DE SCOTT CRICHTON

    64 DE JACKSON JEFFCOAT

    78 OT BILLY TURNER

    112 DT WILL SUTTON

    125 RB BISHOP SANKEY

    132 WR BRUCE ELLINGTON

    158 CB WALT AIKENS

    216 DE CASSIUS MARSH

    248 FB TREY MILLARD

    251 WR AUSTIN FRANKLIN

    254 RB JERICK MCKINNON


    I've been trading down when our board is wiped and taking Martin, but in doing that I see a bunch of offensive lineman I can take that would help our team in rounds 3 and 4, but no linebackers. So I went Mosely my highest ranked guy on my left on my board. I've had trouble finding linebackers to help in the middle rounds this guy improves are instincts, intelligence and athleticism.

    Crichton slipped to me at 47 and that gives me a non stop motor and a dependable player. I traded down to the last pick in the 2nd and took Jeffcoat to give me some athleticism and depth.

    I took Billy turner at 78, he's a guy we really seem to like and I didn't want a run on the online make me regret not taking Martin.

    Sutton and Sankey were value picks, depth picks and cap
    flexibility picks. Sutton will be heavily in the DT rotation.

    I tried to trade down with 158 and get an early 5th and an additional 6th as I was hoping to get Bodine for more Oline depth. I couldn't pull off the trade so I took the talented WR Ellington, if this guy learns a full route tree and dedicates himself to football he can be an impact player.

    Aikens is a CB they like, good value

    Marsh is a guy that popped on the screen every game I was watching Barr, I traded my two remaining 7th round picks to go get him.

    I could live with that draft. I guess the only question is what lB positon does Mosley play. Is McKinnon the RB that may be moved to CB? If not, why draft 2 RB's.

    No chance Sanky is there at the end of the 4th round. If he's still on the board by the end of the 2nd, we had better be figuring out a way to parley our 27 7th round picks into a 3rd to get him.

    I would love it if it happened but I don't see it. He's too good.

    I think Lee and Mosely are both athletic and instinctive enough they can play any LB spot. I'd lean towards leaving Lee in the middle, but I just procure top notch flexible ingredients. I'm trusting my coaches to figure out the details on this pick.

    Mckinnon is talented, but has some off field issues. I take two backs because both are insane value where I took them. It's also not lost on me that we don't have an amazing stable of backs, we have a talented injury prone starter with one yr on his contract and hopes and dreams backing him up.

    I don't think Sanky will be there, but I don't think it's impossible. The RB position in todays game is not valued highly. Kickers were signed for more money than any RB this off season. Sanky is by most counts rated among the top 5. I have him going in the middle of the 4th round in this draft. I think he will be gone, I won't be shocked if one of the top 5 backs falls into the 4th.

    I think Sankey might be the best RB prospect in this draft. I hope he is there at 4 but I don't see any way he will be.
