    I assume that this means we are resigning Spencer, and if that's the case, I'd be pretty happy with this. I'm not much of a Burkhead fan, but I like the Knile Davis pickup.

    I like Burkehead hes a tough runner

    Burkhead is a compactly-built 210 pounds with excellent balance, running close to the ground and with a head of steam. Burkhead is hard-nosed and tough as nails, finishing every run and popping right back after a big hit while showing the downhill patience and vision to follow his blocks.

    He isn't an explosive athlete with more build-up speed than natural burst, but has quick feet to sidestep defenders and make the first guy miss. Although he lacks ?wow? ability to routinely create when the hole isn't there, Burkhead is a an energetic, workhorse runner who takes pride in his craft and runs hard with conviction and determination.

    He isn't a first round caliber prospect, but could easily sneak into the top-100 picks in the mold of a smaller version of Peyton Hillis.

    --Dane Brugler


    he woiuld be a great back up to Murray

    I would like to get Davis an stash him for a year

    Strengths: Scouts like Davis' size, breakaway speed and soft hands out of the backfield. He's worked hard to become a reliable pass blocker and is highly respected by his teammates and the coaching staff, earning the captain role as both a junior (2011) and senior (2012).

    Weaknesses: He is a bit stiff, especially in his upper body, and has struggled with ankle injuries throughout his football career, dating back to high school.

    Compares To: Darren McFadden, Raiders - Like McFadden, Davis has good size and speed - at least pre-injury. But he also runs with a relatively high-center of gravity, which causes him to run a bit upright and absorb big hits from defenders.

    --Rob Rang

    Davis worked his tail off to return from injury, but he ran too hesitant and indecisive this past season, including issues with ball security. He was caught stopping his feet too much, routinely looking to bounce runs outside and not running with much conviction. But NFL scouts are hopeful he can return to his 2010 form.

    A physical freak with the upside to warrant early round consideration, Davis' NFL draft stock ultimately will hinge on the medical grade he's given by team doctors.

    I like everything put the Cyprien pick too. Not buying into the hype quite yet. 1 week of senior bowl practices isn't enough to convince me that hes worth a 2nd round pick. Change it to Dallas Thomas in the 2nd and a different safety (or even Cyprien if hes still there) in the 3rd and it looks much better to me.

    Then watch what he did before the Senior bowl.

    He's worth a 2nd. Hell he just might go in the first anyway.

    Sunbelt conference tends to make guys look good....Im not saying he isn't/can't be good, but I just think he's 1 of the top 45 guys in this draft class. 3rd round and I'm fine with it but just not in the 2nd.

    So you think he's a top 45 player but you don't want him drafted with the 47th pick?

    :confused:

    Not much o-line help. I'm just not real big on Bailey. We might be able to find a higher rated player in the third. Overall I like the mock, can't be too upset with the first two picks.

    Yep, I really love those first 2 picks. I think we can do a lot better the rest of the draft though.

    We may have to grab Cyprien in the 2nd if we want him. Dunno if he makes it to our pick in the third.

    I think Jerry and Callahan are fine with our O line unless B Jones just happens to fall into our laps in the 2nd

    I don't think we can get Cooper or Warmack

    as far as Safties goes I like D.J. Swearinger

    With the pass rush he had in front of him, as well as stellar play from cornerback Stephon Gilmore, Swearinger served as more of a complementary piece last season than a true star on his own.

    That said, he's a very physical defender who showed greater open-field tackling skills and dependability in coverage as the year wore on. At this point he looks like a mid-round selection. Considering his versatility and toughness, however, he could be on the verge of a strong jump up the board this season.

    --Rob Rang

    I think we have to D line IMO in the first

    Shawn Williams

    The broad-shouldered Williams looks and tackles like a linebacker but moves well, showing enough agility to handle coverage responsibilities. His coaches have compared him to former Georgia safety/outside linebacker Thomas Davis, who was selected with the No. 14 overall pick of the 2005 draft by the Carolina Panthers.
