    1st round - Barrett Jones C/G Alabama
    2nd round - Margus Hunt DE SMU
    3rd round - Devin Taylor OLB South Carolina

    First 2 rounds i absolutely love and couldn't draw up a better scenario. Don't particularly care for Taylor. He's a 4-3 DE right now in college and while he is very athletic, given his size (listed by USC as 6-8 267), i don't think he projects well as a 3-4 OLB.

    Interesting that they have the Giants taking Dysert who is someone that was brought up on this forum recently in regards to the Cowboys. Like the player, don't think taking a QB who will never start for you that early. I'm still looking for guys to make an immediate impact in the 3rd round.

    This year is going to have one of the best safety classes in recent memory. It would be pretty dumb not to take advantage of that and come away with one, considering we've been looking for them for the better part of 9 years.

    I'm the last person to be a draft snob--some of the best NFL players come from non-elite programs.

    But, wow; a second round DEFENSIVE player from SMU?
    Times must a-changin'

    I'm not at all trying insult the Ponies, but when is the last time they had a second rounder of any sort succeed in the NFL?
    Let alone a defensive player.

    30+ years?

    That would be interesting.

    Hunt disapeared against Baylor, but Jones would be a huge get almost anywhere on the O line.

    Really? How many do you figure will be drafted in the first round? I see a ton of pass rushers and DL drafted early and often. Plus the QB class is both talented and deep.

    My early 3 is
    1) Barrett Jones C/G/T
    2) Tyler Bray QB (who I feel is going to declare and fall in the draft, if he opts to stay a year as he should next year he will probably be #1 overall).
    3) Margus Hunt DE or Khaled Holmes C

    Barrett Jones is David Diehl, a good player everywhere but not a great player anywhere.

    I can see why we would want him but I don't think he will go as early as he is now being projected. He is a very known quantity and he would be a great get in the second.

    With so many good true NTs that's going to be in this draft, I hope we address that

    Could be as many as 6 depending on how they test etc.

    Vaccaro (SS) Texas
    McDonald (FS)USC
    Lester (SS)Tide
    Williams (SS) Georgia
    Hyde (FS) Iowa
    Rambo (FS) Georgia

    I don't think there will be 6 but I think you could see 6 go in the first two rounds, 3 with 1st round grades.

    A player that I am interested in is Quanterus Smith of Western Kentucky.

    In the past two seasons, he has posted the following:

    2010 GP12 TKL47 TFL10.5 Sacks4.0
    2011 GP12 TKL38 TFL11.0 Sacks6.5

    Already this season, he has 3 sacks against Alabama.

    If he continues to have a good season, he might be a guy we look at at OLB, assuming he doesn't rise too high.

    Are any of these "highly" rated S's ballhawks?

    Not that I have seen.

    Jefferson at Oklahoma is also a highly touted safety.

    My first three are:

    1. Center--Barrett Jones

    2. OLB--Damonte Moore(if he declares), Corey Lemonier, others may be available

    3. CB--All three of these CBs are very good KR/PR. With the team probably losing M. Jenkins these would be perfect fits with return ability a major plus. They are presently ranked from 8th to 12th in CB position.

    Jordan Poyer--Org. St.(11)
    Justin Gilbert--Ok. St.(8)
    Logan Ryan-- Rutgers(12)

    From 4th thru 7th rounds I think the following players should be looked at.

    NT--Brandon Williams--Missouri Southern State
    OT--Mark Jackson--Glenville State ( to replace Free)
    RB--Cameron Mitchell--Arizona

    There are two to three other positions that probably need to be addressed but probably through free agency. DL,Safety--It doesn't necessarily have be these two positions in free agency, but in combo with the first six picks listed some of these needs need to be solved through free agency.
