    This will probably be my 2nd to last mock before the draft. I have carefully thought about this. This would be an ideal scenario:

    1st Round - Anthony Barr DE - Starting RDE. Could potentially drop to us, and give us a great player.

    2nd Round - Dominique Easley DT - IF he checks out medically he could be the steal of the draft. Easily a top 10 player on tape. Extremely disruptive.

    3rd Round - Aaron Murray QB - Don't think he gets out of the 3rd round. Gives us one of the best QBs in the draft to groom for a year or two and fully recover from knee injury.

    4th Round - Trai Turner G - Only 20 years old, and has all the upside in the world. Can really be developed and fight for a starting spot as soon as this year.

    5th Round - Kevin Pierre-Louis OLB - Will give us the speed we need at the weak side linebacker spot. Can really run, and extremely instinctual. One of my favorite late round guys on tape.

    6th Round (Trade 2 of 7th Rounders) - Jamea Thomas FS - Huge ceiling, and will only get better. Has the coverage ability we are looking for. Routinely covers the slot receivers. Little undersized, but has the physical tools to make up for it. Will make his mark on special teams, which he is excellent at.

    7th Round - Ken Bishop DT - Really nice player who can play 3 tech in this scheme.

    7th Round - Matt Hazel WR - Small school guy who produced at Coastal Carolina. Cowboys familiar with.

    7th Round - JC Copeland FB/LB - Can play either spot well. Has the size and athletic ability.

    7th Round - Silas Redd RB - Big upside, low risk.

    I like the players.

    I think Turner could go higher.

    I don't see the fit with Copeland.

    Take out Murray and I would love it.

    We also might have to take Turner in the 3rd, which I'd have no problem with.

    I like it. I would like to see another defensive end. Ken Bishop looks like a beast on tape, we may have to take him earlier.

    I think we gamble with Easley -we seem to like those high impact players who are injured in the 2nd round. I would prefer to trade down and take Shazier and pick up another draft pick though. Everything else looks great to me.

    Shazier won't make it out of the 2nd rnd. Dude it's a linebacker who runs sub 4.4! Someone is going to take a chance.

    I like all the players. As xwaker said it appears Turner goes a round higher.
    I would love Murray

    First two picks have extreme potential but are huge risks. This could be a home run or a strike out draft. No real certainties.

    Why not with Copeland as a lead blocker?

    With Garrett's defense, they would have preferred a FB that is also a very good receiving threat. Millard would be perfect in that role.

    Linehan only used his FB an average of about 2 snaps per game, IIRC.

    Most NFL offenses that use a FB want that multidimensional player, not just a battering ram. There were some good blocking FBs in the league last year that had hard time keeping a job.

    I agree with you on Millard, since he can be kind of a fullback/h-back receiving threat, Copeland would be a more traditional FB

    That's what I am saying - trade down in the first round and make shazier a later 1st round pick and then take easley
